College Football: Week 8 Picks

A great Week 7 (6-2) propels The Banter to a .620 winning percentage on the season. The Pac-10 was especially good to me (3-0), so thanks for that.
North Carolina +7 - In a matchup of two teams heading in seemingly opposite directions, I am backing the team that has won four straight. Miami has looked shaky in each of the last two weeks.
Wisconsin +6 - The Badgers showed last week that they are a tough out. Iowa has looked good too, but I think 6 points are too many.
Oklahoma State +6 - Nebraska was exposed by Texas last week while OSU dominated a decent Texas Tech team on the road. Again, these teams seem to be trending in opposite directions.
Tennessee +17 - The Vols always seem to play Bama tough.
Auburn -6 - It's about time LSU was exposed as frauds. This is the week. 
Best Bet: Stanford -35 - The Cardinal need to send some clear messages (via blowout victories) to prove they belong with the big boys.
Upset: Navy +7 - The Midshipmen are riding high after a nice comeback win over SMU. This game is at a neutral site, and the Irish are a bit knocked up right now.
Record: 31-19-1 (Best Bet: 5-2; Upset: 3-3-1)
