Scott Bilo's Thursday College Picks

Here are my selections for Thursday's FBS, FCS, and D2 action on the field.

Oklahoma State over Arizona
This game has some issues, as Arizona will be missing top receiver Juron Criner. Both teams were fired up on offense last weekend against some weak competition, but I suspect an intact offense gives the Cowboys the edge this week.

Hampton over Florida A&M
If you are looking for a shot at an early season FCS upset, this could be your game. The Rattlers struggled last week, and Hampton picked up a home win. With the Pirates playing at home again, I am looking for them to take out A&M in a close battle.

Tennessee Tech over Maryville
Tech handled themselves well in a loss to Iowa last weekend. Maryville is just a minor inconvenience in comparison. Tech wins big.

Carson-Newman over Fayetteville State
CN is looking to reestablish themselves in 2011 as the power that they were in the last decade. This is their shot to prove that they can be that team.

Valdosta State at Newberry
Valdosta, like CN, is trying to get back on top of the heap. Newberry does not possess the talent base that the Blazers have. VSU should win this by 2 scores.

Washburn at Lincoln (MO)
The Ichabods more than have the talent edge in this game. Washburn should win this game handily at home tonight.

Humboldt State over Central Washington
CWU will be favored, but Humboldt has the hot hand, and the CWU offense struggled last week. Getting back on track against a team with some momentum in the Lumberjacks may be a huge challenge, but CWU also is trying to avoid the 0-2 start that may make them irrelevent in a very tough D2 district.

Coming tomorrow...Friday and Saturday picks!
