It’s Here!

It is Christmas morning….no no, it’s better! It is OFFICIALLY COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON!!! A few weeks ago I did a few preview type posts for the upcoming season, and starting tonight I will feature a few games of the week and make my picks. Here are my week 1 games and picks:

1. SMU vs. Rice (Friday, August 29)- Yes, this game is on my list. In case you didn’t know, Junes Jones is now the coach at SMU. If I had to choose one word to describe his coaching style, it would be “OFFENSIVE”..and I mean that in a good way. The Mustangs are going to put up a lot of yards this year. Rice is also a team who knows how to score. Expect a shoot-out.
My Pick: Rice 41 Smu 35

2. Utah @ Michigan (Saturday, August 30)- Does anyone remember what happened last year to Michigan at home in the season opener? Hmm, me neither. Oh wait, they were upset. Well guess what? It just might happen again. Ute QB Brian Johnson is an experienced and very talented player. Utah will NOT be intimidated. Michigan is in a definite rebuilding year under coach Rich Rodriguez. There could be a lot of headaches this year for Wolverine fans.
My Pick: Utah 27 Michigan 23

3. Alabama vs. Clemson (Saturday, August 30)- This is going to be a great game. Both teams have very high hopes entering the 2008 football season. The Crimson Tide are bringing their #1 recruiting class as well as head coach Nick Saban. After last years disappointing finish, the Tide are looking to get back atop the SEC. Clemson enters 2008 as a team on a mission. They are starting with a top 15 ranking and an offensive backfield that has defensive coordinators stocking up on Pepto. Undoubtedly, this will be a hard hitting, high intensity game in prime time on ABC. Whichever team manages to control the ball and keep from giving it away will win this game.
My Pick: Clemson 21 Bama 17
