The Big Twelve should have a very productive opening weekend as I have them winning all ten games. Texas, West Virginia, and Texas Tech will be challenged but I see all three winning. Oklahoma should have no problem with Florida Atlantic and Kansas will get a big win over Nichols at home.








I have Michigan nipping the Irish in South Bend in the game of the week. Virginia Tech will lose to Florida State and I have Miami just a nose over LSU in Baton Rouge.  All my predictions below the Top 25 list.
