    Um, the rankings above concerning the Top 25 games this week is last week's. haha, can someone fix it? I know that UCLA certainly isn't #23 anymore in the AP Poll.

    Yeah, you're right, its more than just the one. I'll take a look at it in a bit...

    EDIT: Ok, the rankings are fixed, but I'm not guaranteeing that there aren't any games that should be included now that aren't listed.

    I know this is rather late, but instead of the ongoing top 25 pickem we have here, would anyone be interested in forming a yahoo group? It'd be easier to organize, but then again it's not too high-maintenance as it is right now. Just a thought.

    Just to save myself the trouble of using the markup codes, please put me down for the higher ranked team in each and every game.

    Boring, but probable.

    Only real upset I'm calling for is Houston over ECU. The Bucs haven't played well for two weeks straight and might still be reeling. Houston can put up points (37 on an Oklahoma State team good enough to warrant a top 25 slot in my book), and if anything bad happens early on, such as a turnover, or a penalty forcing a punt, ECU might just crumble and allow the pass-happy Cougars to roll./>

    hey, i've been doing my share of writing a poll every week, except for one... yeah, but it would be nice to have more than 2 polls in a week. it's too bad that so few people contribute to this.

    also, I'm really slipping in this pick'em competition. Maybe I'll stop being lazy and quit picking the higher ranked team every time. :p

    My picks
    Boise St over LA Tech
    South Florida over Pitt
    Utah over Oregon St
    BYU over Utah St
