Thursday marked the kickoff to the start of this college football season and there are a full slate of top 25 games this weekend.  So, let me get to the picks!

#1 Georgia vs Georgia Southern - Not really a contest here.  Bulldogs might as well have scheduled another practice.  This will be a theme the first two weeks of the season as most teams are taking on their cupcakes.

#2 Ohio State vs Youngstown State - See above, replace Bulldogs with Buckeyes!

#3 USC at Virginia - Tough opening game for the Trojans on the road.  However, I think they will still win by a couple TDs. 

#4 Oklahoma vs Chattanooga - Sam Bradley will start the year off with a big push for Heisman status.

#5 Florida vs Hawaii - The Warriors didn't get to play Michigan last season, but this they got their wish of a big time game this year.  Too bad it is in the Swamp.  Gators roll.

#6 Missouri vs #20 Illinois - HUGE game to kickoff week 1.  I am going to go ahead and Illinios in this match up.  I really like the speed that the Illini have started to build up.  Should be a great game.

#7 LSU vs Appalachian State - No repeat of last year against Michigan.  Tigers big time in this one.

#8 West Virginia vs Villanova - With Rich Rodriguez, Steve Slaton, and Owen Schmitt gone, Noel Devine and Pat White will shoulder the load this season.  Should be enough talent to get by Villanova.

#9 Clemson vs #24 Alabama - Another HUGE game for the weekend.  I am going to take the Tigers at home against the Crimson Tide.

#10 Auburn vs Louisiana Monroe - Possible trap game for the Tigers, but in the end, Auburn will be victorious.

#11 Texas vs Florida Atlantic - I'm starting to wonder why match ups like these are even made.  Longhorns in this one.

#12 Texas Tech vs Eastern Washington - Will Tech ever get to the century mark?  Could be the day.

#13 Wisconsin vs Akron - Akron is a little underrated, but against Wisconsin, they don't really stand a chance.

#14 Kansas vs Florida International - Can the Jayhawks keep last season's success rolling?  Looks like it will happen today.

#15 Arizona State vs Northern Arizona - Sun Devils should burn up the Lumberjacks.

#16 BYU vs Northern Iowa - The Cougars want to be the next non-BCS school in a BCS bowl game.  Their quest starts today. 

#17 Virginia Tech at East Carolina - Sean Glennon is the starter now, so he has to prove the coaches right.  Hokies pull it out at ECU.

#18 Tennessee at UCLA - Another season, another big game to start off for the Vols.  I am taking the Bruins in an upset to start the season.

#19 South Florida vs Tennessee-Martin - The Bulls got off to a fast start last season.  This season looks like more of the same.

#21 Oregon vs Washington - The Ducks have lost their starting QB for a second season in a row.  Good thing this one is in Euguene.  I'll take the Ducks.

#22 Penn State vs Coastal Carolina - Not even offseason distractions can stop the Nittany Lions in this one.

#25 Pittsburgh vs Bowling Green - Panthers are rated?  They will stay rated next week with the win this week.

Actually, I was referring to Sam Bradley the number 1 ranked Towel Boy. I thought you were up on your football too!
