Thursday Picks 10/21

There is only one FBS game on tap for tomorrow night.

UCLA at Oregon

What's at Stake
For UCLA, a loss to Oregon will mean that the rebuilding process has officially fallen way behind schedule. For Oregon, this is a chance to stay at #1 in the AP (1st time ever), maintain a spot in the BCS national championship game, and to keep leaving a trail of bodies in the PAC-10.

Oregon Wins If...
They just win. Oregon will play their game, and will pound the ball at lightning speed against a deer caught in the headlight Bruin front seven. The Ducks shouldn't even feel a bump as they cruise right over the carcass of the Bruins tomorrow night. They won't hear it either over the din of the home faithful.

UCLA Wins If...
Aliens abduct Chip Kelly and replace him with Grace Kelly's doppleganger. Yeah, I know, not happening...but it would be funny if it did...

Vegas Line
Oregon -21

I Pick
Oregon by more than 21

In FCS Play...

Lambuth at Tennessee-Martin
UTM has not been horrible this season, but they aren't great either. Lambuth has a histiry of providing some entertaining NAIA play, but don't expect an upset this season. The Skyhawks have enough in the tank to take this one.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff at Alcorn State
Elimination game in the SWAC, but they may both already be eliminated. Alcorn State had crawled towards the top 25 of the PRS before falling flat two weeks ago. I am taking Raymond Webber and the Golden Lions on the road.
