Iowa State -9.5 vs UNI – Take Panthers and the points. ISU is a work in progress
Cal +5 vs Northwestern – Cal. Late night trip across country for a team not used to the pre-season hype
Kansas State -13 vs North Dakota State – Kansas State rolls NDST
Nebraska -30 vs Wyoming – I don’t remember the last time Nebraska beat anybody by 30, let alone a team with a face paced offense and a decent quarterback. Take Wyoming.
Louisville -20.5 vs Ohio – The Cardinals beat Florida by ten a few months back. They’ll crush Ohio. Bet Louisville big.
Clemson +1.5 vs Georgia – Aaron Murray will carve up a lot of defensive backfields in 2013. Clemson will be the first. Take the Dawgs.

One decade ago, Georgia, under current head coach Mark Richt, defeated Clemson in a 30-0 blowout....

The Georgia Bulldogs practiced Wednesday afternoon in workout jerseys, shorts and helmets, in the initial of two dress rehearsals, as they wind things down in preparation for Saturday’s big game against the Clemson Tigers. “We practiced with a lot of crowd noise, and we’ll do it again Thursday at the stadium,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “It went well and Todd (Grantham...
CLEMSON - Georgia QB Aaron Murray talks about Georgia's 38-35 loss to Clemson.
I was chatting casually with a Georgia fan the other day, and they asked what my take was on the game—did I feel Georgia, with its young defense, would be able to withstand the juggernaut that is Tajh Boyd and…Read more →
Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray was predicted to show Clemson’s gunslinger Tajh Boyd why ” them dawgs” were ranked #5 and whey Clemson was ranked #8 coming into Saturday’s game.
The problem was that Boyd rose to the challenge and Murray folded in the primetime atmosphere.

College football fans were definitely in midseason form with their signs behind the set of ESPN’s “College GameDay” from Clemson on Saturday.
On top of the “Bobby P. Give ‘Em The D” sign mocking Western Kentucky head coach Bobby Petrino, one fan made a sign of...
As far as scouts are concerned, there may not be a more significant game this weekend than when Georgia visits Clemson. Both Aaron Murray and Tahj Boyd have hopes of being high selections in the NFL Draft, and this big stage is going to give both players a chance to separate themselves from their peers.
Which QB will stand out the most? Who else will step up early for Clemson...
Georgia's Aaron Murray and Tajh Boyd of Clemson are poised to put on an aerial display.
And if the two record-setting quarterbacks have a good game Saturday when the fifth-ranked Bulldogs play the No. 8 Tigers at Death Valley, the winner will likely become an early front-runner in the Heisman Trophy race.
The seniors postponed careers in the NFL for a final college season....
Apparently Aaron Murray, the Georgia Bulldog starting quarterback, is hanging out with NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon. The picture is pretty blurry. Just two bros hanging out. This is Murray’s senior season. Expect to see him playing on Sundays next year.
Pretty awesome meeting Jeff Gordon today. Thanks for stopping by Athens pic.twitter.com/RnGl2mfsSb
