College Gameday Thread: Week 2
 
Thursday night:
Arizona @ #9 Oklahoma State

Friday night:
#21 Missouri @ Arizona State

Some other intriguing matchups:
#16 Mississippi State @ Auburn
#11 Virginia Tech @ ECU
#3 Alabama @ #23 Penn State
#12 South Carolina @ Georgia
BYU @ #24 Texas
Notre Dame @ Michigan
Rutgers @ North Carolina
Cincinnati @ Tennessee

I guess RG3 and Baylor don't play this week. What a shame.

My question is this: Why the **** is Notre Dame favored by 3.5 points over Michigan right now? I should be pounding Brady Hoke's Wolverines right now before it goes down to 3, right?

West Virginia has powerhouse Norfolk State... Thank god other games are on.

I like the first four road teams to win listed under the 'other intriguing matchups', looking at that parlay now...

Arizona vs Ok State should be a good one.

I think so too. I'm not sure how much I like that line giving Arizona +13. Nick Foles and Juron Criner should have a coming out party. I still think it's weird that Weeden is older than Aaron Rodgers.

I'm intrigued and I'll be DVR'ing it. Good game to watch if you want to get a good look at the QB's. I already have a solid opinion of Foles but it won't hurt to see him some more and I definitely want to watch Brandon Weeden.

And as a fan of Rutgers, this game against UNC should be a good barometer of where they're at.

Then there is always Notre Dame/Michigan at the Big House. First ever night game in the Big House and it should be exciting.

You're lucky I like you gnpgc, I've killed for less!

Gonna go to the UCF/BC game Saturday night (hopefully). Should be a good one.

Iowa @ Iowa St. HATE WEEK!

The Cyclones have not scored a touchdown vs. the Iowa 1st team D in 3 years.

Also, this:

Lucky. I'm going to two UCF games this year and I wish this was one of them.

Wait, waaaaait...Michigan is a 2 point UNDERDOG to ND? I mean, I know it's in South Bend, but did the odds makers watch Notre Dame last week? How are they favored at this point?

Also, Iowa at -6.5 seems like a great play given recent results vs. Iowa St. But Iowa State's sole purpose in football each year is to beat Iowa. If they went 1-11 and beat Iowa, it would be a successful season. Hell, in 2007 they went 3-9 with a 15-13 win over Iowa that they still bring up as one of their best memories as of late.

If I had to guess, I'd say the final is going to be something like 27-17, but wouldn't be surprised if it was like 24-20 or 21-17. I would not put any money on Iowa.

Except it's not in South Bend. It's the first night game in Ann Arbor.

Yup, I just realized that. Now I'm really confused how Michigan is the 2 point dog in this game...

There has never been a night game in Ann Arbor ever? I could have sworn they played a night game there back when Braylon Edwards was there.

Where do you guys bet? Bodog?

Prefer to do it with someone live that you can see and talk to and get the lines off an online sportsbook

That game started at 3:30 and went into overtime.

Laughed way too hard at this.

Joseph Randle looking good early, 7-0 Okie State.

Smooth Criminal 09-08-2011 08:16 PM

I'm loving watching this game in 3d. Looks fantastic.

Not only is Michigan a 2-pt dog right now but they opened at +4.5!!!!!!!!! That's too good to be true. It's fishy as hell. Also that was the reason I started this thread - to get people's thoughts on what I viewed as a RIDICULOUS line.
