College Football: Week 4 Picks- Dogs Day Afternoon Will Shake BCS Picture

Tulsa Golden Hurricane at Boise State Broncos

Let’s make this short, sweet, and easy for all.

Boise State have not lost a home game since 2001, have not lost to Tulsa in their past five games, the Broncos have Kellen Moore while the Golden Hurricane have…Kalen Henderson.

In the battle of Kellen versus Kalen, we’ll stick with the prolific and highly talented Broncos quarterback to torch a struggling, lacklustre Tulsa defense.

UPSET SPECIALS!

San Diego State Aztecs at Michigan Wolverines

Denard Robinson vs. the Aztecs?

Shut down Denard, you shut down the Wolverines.

The run game of Aztecs Ronnie Hillman trumps Denard Robinson any day of the week.  What? Because Denard is statistically better than Hillman, barely?  Look at the games the Michigan Denards have played.  Western and Eastern Michigan, and Notre Dame.  Take the Irish out of the mix, and sure, Denard the Destroyer showed his might against two weak, struggling defenses.  Now, look at Denard against the Irish-114 yards on the ground.  Not very “Denard” like, now was it?

Now, look at Ronnie Hillman’s numbers.  191 yards on the ground against Washington State last week, 117 against Army in week 2, and 189 rushing yards against Cal Poly in his opening game.  Let’s not forget, Hillman is tied with Alabama’s Trent Richardson and SMU’s Zach Line for most rushing touchdowns this season with eight.

Hillman will go up against Michigan’s rush defense that ranks 103rd in the nation against the run.  Perfect.

It’ll probably be the Hillman hustle over at the Big House today.  Aztecs stick it to their old coach.

Arkansas Razorbacks at Alabama Crimson Tide

Will the suffocating defense of Alabama stop the explosive offense of Arkansas?

Stat Pack:  Alabama is 7-3 in its past 10 against the Razorbacks, and 19-0 in opening SEC games.

So?

The last time Tyler Wilson saw this Alabama team, he had a miserable appearance.  Wilson stepped in during the fourth quarter in 2008, going 4-for-7, 27 yards passing, sacked twice and threw one interception/

So?

Three years makes all the difference.  Tyler Wilson is not the same pivot as he was in 2008.

The outcome today will be completely different as the Razorbacks quarterback looks to exact revenge against this ‘Bama defense that many believe to be the best in the nation.

Really?

A tad suspect if you actually look at it.

Penn State, Kent State, North Texas?  No wonder this unit is so good-they haven’t even played anyone relevant yet.

On the flip side of the ball, Trent Richardson seems to be the only thing working on offense.  If the Razorbacks contain Richardson, things may unravel quickly for the Tide.

Anything else you need to know about this game…check the previous post HERE

By no means is this game going to be a blowout, but, instead, a death blow to Alabama’s season.

Offense over defense in this one.
