I know everyone has the Buckeyes on Upset Alert but I do not. Ezekiel Elliott is a Bad man and will make all the difference come Labor Day!
So, there you have it folks all games are picked and in the books. Not a ton of shocks in week one but, hey I can’t help that schools don’t schedule harder games. Please feel free to comment or post any game I may have missed that you find interesting, or just to tell me all my picks suck. All that matters though is that College Football is back and I can’t wait!
