My picks: I went 1-3 last week and 2 and 1 this week for a season total of 3-4. I was in my upset special for a second week in a row. Michigan Quarterback Denard Robinson looked absolutely atrocious, accounting for five turnovers (4 of them coming in the first half). To round out my picks, I was correct in predicting Florida State to beat Clemson and Oregon to beat Arizona.
Trending… Up: Oregon, Florida State, Kansas State; Down: Michigan, Boise State,
Week 4: AP Top 25 (Updated Sunday 9/23):
The biggest movement in the rankings is probably Kansas State shooting up from #15 to #7 after knocking off Oklahoma. I agree with #2 Oregon swapping spots with #3 LSU. LSU looked somewhat unimpressive against Auburn this week while Oregon completely dominated a (#22 ranked last week) Arizona. Florida State remains at #4, but sure looks like the real deal after they beat a very good Clemson team in an offensive shootout, which will prove to be a key divisional match-up in the ACC. Notre only moves up one spot from #11 to #10, thought it is hard to tell how much of their 13 to 6 win was the fact was Michigan’s offensive struggles. Consequently, Michigan falls out of the top 25 after its lowly showing against the Irish in South Bend.
