The Man's College Football Picks

Well, the Man only served up one game last weekend but it was a winner - the Pats covered the 9 point spread by 1.

Here are this week's college football picks:

Ohio State -14.5 at Michigan State: Drew Stanton challenged his team to come out and fight for their coach against Michigan - and they got drubbed, 31-13. MSU basketball stud Matt Trannon and RB Javon Ringer will be out, which means the OSU defense can shut down Stanton without fear of any other big play receivers or backs stepping up to beat them. The Man is buying a point to bring it under 14, taking OSU on the road -13.5.

Hawaii at Fresno State: What the hell has happened to the Bulldogs? Their once "play anyone, anytime, anywhere" mantra should be changed to "play patsies, at home, who can't throw". The 'Dogs have been outpassed in four games this year, with the only exception coming against barely D-I Utah State last week. Look for June Jones's high octane passing attack to soar against Fresno this week. Take the Rainbow Warrirors and buy a point and half to bring it to Hawaii -3.

Michigan -6 at Penn State: "Super" Mario Manningham will be out of this game, essentially taking away Michigan's big play capability. It's a night game in Happy Valley, so look for PSU to come up with a flukey big play or turnover to be the difference that keeps Penn State close. Take the Nittany Lions and buy a point - they won't win but should cover getting a touchdown.
