With the picks I am about to bring you, I should own the world.

Washington State -10 @ Stanford - 500 points
The Cougars (2-1) play the winless and hurting Stanford Cardinal (0-3) today. Here is what is wrong with Stanford: offensive injuries that forced freshmen and walk-ons into playing time; an inexperienced defense that can't stop the run; weak special teams and too many turnovers. Stanford lost to San Jose State. They lost to UC Davis last year. The Cougs lost to Stanford last year but were without Jason Hill. Also of note: the Cardinal also will be without its band. The famous Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band has been suspended from public performances for September because of alleged vandalism to the former "Band Shak."

UCLA -3 @ Washington - 200 points
Washington is improving. Last week's upset of Fresno State at home was a huge confidence builder for a program on the rise. However, while the Bulldogs ran a fairly simple offense, UCLA will likely unveil a number of different looks. The Bruins' Chris Markey averages 120 yards a game and 7.5 yards a carry. The running game opens up an air offense led by flashy quarterback Ben Olson. This guy is like a 28 year old sophomore who will be making his first college road start. Olson leads the Pac-10 in pass efficiency throwing for five touchdowns in his first two career starts. Look for him to expose a young and thinned out UW secondary.

UCLA vs Washington over 57 - 200 points
This number is too small for two offensively weighted Pac-10 teams. The Bruins have a new D-coordinator and are somewhat small.

Notre Dame -3 @ Michigan State 500 Points
I love to bet against the Irish, but this is one pathetic Michigan State team. Notre Dame has got to come back strong. If they play mistake free football, this is a blowout. I watched the MSU vs. Idaho game and came away thinking Idaho was a good team. Then Idaho got worked by WSU and MSU still struggled against non conference MAC opponents. I like ND in a romp.

Louisville -14 @ KState 500 points
I am a little nervous that the Robnosticator is all over Louisville as you could make a living by going against his picks. But I really like Louisville.

Minnesota -2 @ Purdue 500 points

Whoever Illionois is playing, for however many points they are giving 100 points
