Week 4 Jones Picks

Current Record: 12-3

Last week I did a little worse than I expected. I was convinced that Nebraska was going to beat Virginia Tech and West Virginia blew that game against Auburn. So this week I will stick to my instincts and never pick West Virginia in anything. On to the picks:
  • (4) Ole Miss vs South Carolina: I'm a huge fan of Ole Miss to make a big impact in the SEC this year. This will not be blowout but Ole Miss will easily win. Jones Pick: Ole Miss
  • South Florida vs (18) Florida State: If USF could win this game it would be quite the statement for the Big East. Florida State has been two different teams this season but I think the team that beat BYU last week will show up. Jones Pick: Florida State
  • Arkansas vs (3) Alabama: This is going to be absolutely fantastic. I think Arkansas will put up a fight like they did last week against Georgia but the nation will see how great Alabama is. Jones Pick: Alabama
  • (6) Cal vs Oregon: Cal is going to be a tough team to beat. Jahvid Best might be the front runner for the Heisman. Jones Pick: Cal
  • (9) Miami vs (11) Virginia Tech: The game of the week on paper. Both these teams are ranked too highly, nobody in the ACC is a top ten team yet. I'm not sure Miami is all the way back like the media has started to hype but they are better than Tech. Jones Pick: Miami
  • Iowa vs (5) Penn State: We all saw the upset last year that denied Penn State a place in the BCS Title game. I think Penn State gets the win back this year. Jones Pick: Penn State
  • Texas Tech vs (17) Houston: I thought Tech played much better against Texas than what was too be expected. Houston had that amazing win against Oklahoma State week 2 but I think they lose this game and their top 25 spot. Jones Pick: Texas Tech
Back with the Pitt game predictions tomorrow.

Jones, I hate to disagree with you but....

South Carolina should pull this one out by the skin of their teeth!

Arkansas gets lucky, the curse of Jeff Long lives on.

V. Tech tries to give this one away but they hold on.

Houston is for real, TTU is smoke and mirrors.

Pitt will kick ass and win by 17!
