Taylor Venema (43-11, overall, 5-1 last week):
1. Florida State, but Louisville’s defense keeps it close enough to keep people doubting the Noles.
2. TCU – good lord, where did this team come from?
3. Oregon – the non-Mariota pieces of the offense have finally awakened, and Stanford just can’t score.
4. Arizona – only because they’ve been good on the road. Still not sold on their top-15 ranking yet.
5. Utah – the defense and ground game de-claws the Sun Devil offense.
6. Auburn – after the loss to LSU I foresee a return of Bad Dr. Bo. They turn it over a ton but still only lose by a couple.

Chris Hatch (34-20 overall, 4-2 last week):
1. Florida State. Damn it. It speaks volumes that Jimbo Fisher has become so sleazy that I will openly root for a Bobby Petrino led team.
2. West Virginia. It’s couch burning time, Morgantown. SWAT team optional!
3. Oregon wins. Finally getting the “W” over Stanford after it probably is too late to help.
4. Arizona. How did I just now realize that Rich Rod should be called “Dick Rod” based on his name?!?! I need to step my “Dick Rod” jokes up on Twitter.
5. Big Pac 12 Matchups this week. I’m going with the Arizona State Sun Devils. I’m predicting a large grouping of ASU alumni-cougars show up to the game looking for pretty because they mistakenly heard “Youths” when discussing the game at their local mani-pedi-Moscato party.
6. Auburn. Bo Wallace ends up bloodied and beaten, just like his distant uncle and Braveheart star, William.

Danny Troutman (34-20 overall, 5-1 last week):
1. Florida State should win huge, but they won’t. They’ll win small.
2. TCU wins big. That offensive explosion that showed up last week continues.
3. Oregon – I’d like to say Stanford, but I can’t.
4. Arizona – UCLA is still ranked? AZ has only 1 loss by 2 points to USC. They’ll take this one.
5. Utah – just because
6. Auburn – I’m still not very impressed with Ole Miss. Auburn takes it to ’em.

Derek Hernandez (33-32 overall, 4-2 last week):
1. FSU
2. TCU
3. Oregon
4. AZ
5. Utah
6. Auburn

Anthony Amico (31-23 overall, 3-3 last week):
1. THE ‘VILLE
2. TCU
3. Oregon
4. Arizona
5. Arizona State
6. Ole Miss

Brian Brashaw (30-24 overall, 3-3 last week):
1. FSU unfortunately keeps rolling
2. TCU is a juggernaut
3. Oregon keeps hope alive
4. Zona because UCLA is on shaky ground.
5. Utah – What is a Ute?
6. Auburn – I still saw screw the SEC

Tim Freburg (28-26 overall, 5-1 last week):
1. Florida State – Petrino is the good guy in this scenario! Gotta love college football…
2. TCU – Can they top 82?
3. Oregon – Long time coming for the Ducks to get past the Trees.
4. Arizona – Last-second field-goal win, because why not?
5. Arizona St. – Sure.
6. I think Auburn gives Ole Miss their second loss and boots them from the top four.
