Each week of the college football season, I will pick the winners and losers in big games from around the country, as well as the Oregon and Oregon State games. Enjoy! South Carolina 38, North Carolina 13 - Ah, the old Carolina clash. The game that makes the blood of Gamecocks and Tar Heels boil. Oh wait, that's South Carolina - Clemson and North Carolina - Duke.  Ole Miss 41, Vanderbilt 31 - Take one look at Hugh Freeze's recruiting class and tell me the last time that many 18-year-old kids wanted to come to Oxford except to fight the US government.  USC 34, Hawaii 10 - Last year when things went badly, Lane Kiffin fired his dad. Who's he going to fire this year, his mom?  Texas A&M 52, Rice 20 - Forget about Manziel, the real story here is Rice QB Taylor McHargue - he probably participates in underage drinking and parties too.  Oklahoma State 27, Mississippi State 24 - A few years back, Mike Gundy said: "I'm a man! I'm 40!" - just imagine what he is now.  Notre Dame 31, Temple 7 - Notre Dame is so good, it's like Temple doesn't even exist...  Penn State 27, Syracuse 17 - Think about this: Had Mike Bellotti not retired when he did, Chip Kelly would have taken the Syracuse job and the landscape of college football would look a lot different. Oregon 55, Nichols State 5 - Nichols gets one nickel, Oregon gets two nickels to pound Nichols. Alabama 40, Virginia Tech 10 - The DEATH STAR is back at it. Oregon State 58, Eastern Washington 0 - Wait, is Eastern Washington the school with the red field? If so, this should have been a road game for the Beavers. Auburn 41, Washington State 20 - If Washington State schedules like a D2 school, and they play like a D2 school, they'll probably lose at Auburn. Just sayin'. Georgia 27, Clemson 26 - This is a huge game in Death Valley, the only place in the world that considers Dabo Swinney sane. Georgia pips the Tigers in a close one. LSU 31, TCU 6 - And Horned Frogs fans thought it couldn't get worse after the performance of last year’s Fighting Drug Addicts team... Boise State 24, Washington 20 - This game sets up well for Washington, with renovated Husky Stadium opening back up. Unfortunately, the Huskies lose. Northwestern 41, California 31 - Watch out. Northwestern is a powerhouse. Cal is not.
