CFB Top 25 Picks: Dazed and Confused

Well, at the very least, I won't be picking Ohio State to lose in an "Upset Special."

1 Florida over @Kentucky
2 Texas over UTEP
3 Alabama over Arkansas - Worth tracking
4 Ole Miss over @South Carolina - D'oh
5 Penn State over Iowa -- Vengeance + HFA > Overrated
6 Cal over @Oregon -- Huge "prove-it" game for Cal
7 LSU over @Mississippi St
8 Boise St over @Bowling Green - Won't help Boise's S.O.S.
11 VA Tech over 9 Miami -- Game of the Week.
12 USC over Washington St -- Who cares?
13 Ohio State over Illinois -- Won't pick against OSU 'til @PSU
14 Cincy over Fresno St - Compare to Boise's perf vs. Fresno
15 TCU over @Clemson - Great non-conf W for BCS-buster
16 Oklahoma St over Grambling
17 Houston over Texas Tech -- Must-must-must-see
18 Florida State over S. Florida - No Grothe, no chance for USF
19 BYU over Colorado St
20 Kansas over Southern Miss -- Should be a shootout
21 Georgia over Arizona State -- Not quite what it would have been 2 yrs ago
Georgia Tech over 22 UNC -- Mild Upset of the Week
23 Michigan over Indiana -- UM at 4-0 (but a soft 4-0)
24 Washington over @Stanford -- Let-down for Dawgs?
25 Nebraska over LA-Lafayette -- NU gets back on track

Other Games of Note
Missouri over Nevada: Should be enough to get Mizzou ranked
Pitt over @NC St: Decent non-conf win for Pitt on the road
Notre Dame over @Purdue: Eh.
Northwestern over Minnesota -- Syracuse loss notwithstanding.
