Abe’s College Football Picks – Week 9

I promise to retire if I don't have a winning record this week.

BYU 37, Boise State 34 – Blue turf is a sin.

Texas A&M 45, Vanderbilt 24 – Wouldn't it be ironic if Johnny Manziel was drafted by the New Orleans Saints?

Alabama 42, Tennessee 0 – 'Bama's defense is playing soccer, their offense is playing basketball, and their coach is playing gin rummy with Satan. 

Florida State 54, NC State 21 – In other words, the Tide will be tough to beat.

Texas Tech 25, Oklahoma 22 – After giving up a game winning field goal to the Red Raiders, Mike and Bob Stoops become Red-Faced Raiders. 

West Virginia 14, Kansas State 13 – You don't need to make a statue of Bill Snyder, he already is a statue. 

Notre Dame 34, Air Force 21 – The Irish wish they had an air force, but a ground force will suffice in this one. 

Oregon 54, UCLA 31 – Nick Alliotti collapses when Jim Mora has Brett Hundley on the field to start the fourth quarter, and the Ducks defense responds with a game-clinching pick-six.

Missouri 34, South Carolina 31 – The Gamecocks are placed at a tactical disadvantage when Steve Spurrier uses all his timeouts deciding whether to call heads or tails on the opening coin-toss, and South Carolina never recovers. 

Texas 34, TCU 20 – A small puddle forms around Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson, and Mack Brown takes his house in Austin off the market.

Ohio State 48, Penn State 14 – What is a Nittany Lion, anyway? I Googled it and I still can't figure it out.

Stanford 32, Oregon State 28 – Sean Mannion's arm falls off in overtime after throwing 154 passes, and Stanford pulls it out of the fire.
