Lee Corso has been a staple of Saturday mornings on ESPN since 1987 as he has brought humor and the tradition of wearing the mascot head of his weekly picks to the popular show. Coach Corso, the 77 year old retired coach who compiled a career coaching record of 73 wins and 85 losses at the University of Louisville and Indiana University, but he has gained his popularity as a member of the ESPN crew. Corso played football at Florida State University where he had a roommate by the name of Burt Reynolds who played for the Noles. Like him or not, his ringmaster style of humor brings energy to Saturday mornings.
Kathryn Gilligan, Curt Hendricks and Billy Brewer had the answer to last week’s trivia question as they knew that Ted Kluszewski played football at Indiana University. This week’s trivia question pertains to a former great quarterback of the Bengals. What college did Ken Anderson play for? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Florida State over Clemson: This is a big ACC tilt as both teams are ranked, but the Noles defense will be the difference.
Louisville over Florida International University: The Cards defense faltered in the second half last week, but they hung on for the win and they will this week in Miami.
LSU over Auburn: The Tigers travel to the Plains to face Auburn who will have big problems stopping the offense of LSU.
South Carolina over Missouri: The Gamecocks have injuries and suspension problems, but they will win this game over the Tigers by nine.
Georgia over Vanderbilt: Vanderbilt has made great improvements, but they will not have enough to upset the Dogs in Athens.
Georgia Tech over Miami: It is obvious that the Canes are struggling and that will not change as Tech will win by ten.
Ohio State over UAB: The Buckeyes will cruise in this game as they will dominate in all phases of the game.
Penn State over Temple: Can Penn State two in a row? I think they will.
Tennessee over Akron: The Vols came up short last week, but Akron is not Florida and the Vols win big.
Drake over Morehead State: The Eagles will have trouble on the road as they face a balanced Drake squad.
Southern California over California: The Trojans will rebound after last week’s upset as they beat the Bears by two touchdowns.
Florida over Kentucky: I am going out on a limb here as I pick the Gators for the victory in the Swamp.
Michigan over Notre Dame: My upset pick of the week as the Irish have injury problems in their defensive backfield and Michigan will take advantage of it.
Georgetown over Kentucky Christian: The nationally ranked Tigers will put up some huge numbers in this mismatch game.
Oklahoma over Kansas State: This game will be real close, but the Sooners win by three over the Wildcats.
Virginia Tech over Bowling Green: The Hokies are still stinging from last week’s debacle, but they will regroup and win this game by sixteen.
West Virginia over Maryland: The men from Morgantown are good and the Terps will be no match for them on Saturday.
Arkansas over Rutgers: This game will be a battle as the Hogs will try to pick up the pieces from the past two weeks.
North Carolina over East Carolina: The Heels sure did not give up last week against Louisville and that effort will carry over as they beat the Pirates.
Oregon over Arizona: This game will be a high scoring affair, but the Ducks simply have too much for the Wildcats.
Last week: That is the reason they put erasers on pencils as I picked only fourteen out of twenty correctly last week. The season total stands at 50 picked right out of 60 contests for 83%.
