Lots of upsets this past Saturday and many exciting games among the 27 we had to choose from. I’m glad Yahoo chose to throw in other games of particular interest outside the Top 25 this year. Jack Burton was the weekly winner at 22 points, tying the highest output of any group member in a single week this season.
NO early pick this week with #1 ranked Oregon playing on Thursday night. Yahoo will not include a Thursday night game in the mix, even for a ranked team, as we saw in week two when Auburn played State. Auburn favored by 6.5 currently on Yahoo, although I saw 4.5 for Vegas odds yesterday. Seems quite a bit knowing the history of these two teams–especially with the game in Auburn, but after hanging 65 on Arkansas, anything’s possible.
The Top 25 for our group going into week 8:
