Walker Sports College Football Pick'em Week 7 Recap

Last weekend was a wild one in the college football world. For the second consecutive week we had the number one team in the country go down. We had two SEC powerhouses playing in a shootout that would make any WAC jealous, and we saw the re-emergence of the Trojans. Exciting football on the field leads to great action in the sports book.

USC -3 v. Cal: Cal is not a very good team, and it looks like USC found their legs once again. A dominating performance by Lane Kiffen's bunch on Saturday. Maybe just maybe the Trojans have rediscovered their pride and they are playing to prove a point to the rest of college football.

Winner USC wins the game and covers the 3 points.

Iowa -3.5 v. Michigan: Once again it is painfuly obvious that Michiganis a one trick pony. Deneard Robison put the Wolverines on the map this season, and they are only as good as his next performance on the field. Saturday the Hawkeyes banged up Robinson and forced him to the sidelines early. After that it was all Iowa in another solid outting and a conviencing 10 point win, and a cover.

Winner Iowa wins the game and covers the 3.5 points.

Auburn -4 v. Arkansas: During the week I had a coversation about this game with a friend and we both agreed that Auburn has won a lot of ugly games this year and as a result they had a difficult time making covers. This lead us to a disccusion about the over/under (set at 46) to which we summized that this could be a classice 17-10 SEC slug fest, or things could get out of hand and the game ends up being a 34-28 shootout. I'm pretty sure neither of us invisioned a 65-43 blowout. I was completely wrong on the cover, since Auburn was able to handle the 4 points with ease, but if I'm going to be wrong at least let it happen during a game like this. On a side note if Cam Newton can keep putting up numbers like he did last week, he will be a shoe in for the Heisman.

Winner Auburn wins the game and covers the 4 points.

Ohio State -4 v. Wisconsin: Okay, I have finally learned my lesson, Wisconsin is a good team. Sure they were in the comfy confines of Camp Randell Stadium in Madison, but they dismantled what many thought was the best team in the country. Ohio State looked lost on offense, and for once they looked soft on defense. It's difficult to pinpoint what went wrong for the Buckeyes, but needless to say they cannot afford another meltdown like last week's.

Winner Wisconsin wins and pulls the upset covering the 4 points.
