(TCU looks to run through BYU this weekend and stay unbeaten)

It's Thursday and time to take a look at all of the top 25 spreads, and pick the winners. This week we have a lot of interesting matchups, and some big games.

The college football season is getting serious, losing now might mean losing your chance at a BCS bowl game, so let's dive into these games and see who will survive.

HIT THE JUMP!!!!!!!!!

Minnesota +16.5 OVER Ohio State
...Terrelle Pryor has been struggling as of late, he has been so inconsistent that people have been calling him and giving him support. One of those people is LeBron James, I'm not sure who this James guy is but I'm pretty sure he doesn't play football. On another note Eric Decker is a big time stud, big time, look for him the catch 10 balls for 108 yards and a score, if this happens Minnesota can keep this one close.

South Florida +6.5 OVER Pitt...South Florida has a solid squad this year, and is always upset hungry. This is Pitt's first week in the polls and I think they run into some trouble with South Florida.

Georgia Tech -5.5 OVER Virginia...GT seems to have things figured out after beating VT last week(and ruining my teaser), so this week I have to take my hat off and pick em. Dwyer and Co. are running all over the place and I don't think Virginia has the people to stop them.

UConn +7.5 OVER WVU...With a tragic death hitting the UConn team I think they come out with a fire in their hearts, hopefully they can pull this one out...R.I.P. Jasper Howard

Oklahoma State -9.5 OVER Baylor...In a shootout I've got to take the Cowboys, even without Dez Bryant they have plenty of firepower

Penn State -4.5 OVER Michigan...We might be looking at the game of the week here, Penn State fans have got to be scared in this matchup, that being said I think this game goes down to the wire and Penn State wins 35-30...more analysis coming later tonight

Cincinnati -18 OVER Louisville...The Cardinals have been getting beat up lately and the last thing they want to see is the Bearcats offense, even without Tony Pike Cincinnati is very dangerous look for this one to end 38-13.

Miami -4.5 OVER Clemson...I had my doubts with Miami early in the year, but they have been very impressive in the last two weeks, I think they can pull away from Clemson if they can contain CJ Spiller.

Kansas +7.5 OVER Oklahoma...I have been betting Kansas hard all year long and it has been working, no way I jump off the bandwagon now, especially with all the turmoil going on it Norman...good luck to Bradford, bring in the mustache...Dezmon Briscoe will have over 100 yards in this one.

Oregon -10 OVER Washington...Jake Locker might be the best NFL prospect at QB, but Washington is not as good as he is, they get better every week, but still need time to put it all together. Oregon wins 31-19.

Utah -9.5 OVER Air Force...I genuinely have no interest in this game(sorry Tiko) , but I do see Utah winning 23-10.

South Carolina -12.5 OVER Vanderbilt...SC has been a good bet all year long and it continues this week against a poor Vandy team.

Texas Tech -21.5 OVER Texas A&M...This is a really hard line to bet, but if your every in this situation take the better team to cover...Texas Tech might put up 50+ in this one(they could start a dog at QB and still put up points).

Iowa +1 OVER Michigan State...This is exactly why I think Iowa is at risk, they are undefeated and go into this game the underdog, MSU has a solid squad and looks to upset every week. Iowa simply has too many weapons, Iowa 24-18

Florida -23 OVER Mississippi State...Florida is not happy about being knocked out of the #1 spot in the AP poll, they finally have something to prove.

Alabama -14 OVER Tennessee...I'm back to betting Bama, and I like this line a lot, maybe a tease bet. Alabama struts it's stuff this weekend 29-10

TCU -2.5 OVER BYU...OH BABY HERE WE GO!!!...this is the game TCU has been looking at all year long, if they get a win here they are really really real. HORNED FROGS BANDWAGON 2009!!!

Houston -16.5 OVER Southern Methodist...Points will not be hard to come by in this one. Houston wins 40-19.

LSU -7.5 OVER Auburn...I have bet and won with LSU, I can't say the same about Auburn. I bet on Auburn their first week in the polls, and lost. Sorry Tigers but I'm taking the Tigers in this one.

Texas -12.5 OVER Missouri...Texas is feeling left out as they are always number three, they will continue to roll while Bama and Florida get all of the attention.

Oregon State +20.5 OVER USC...I honestly guessed this line would be somewhere around 15.5, and because it's 20.5 I've got to take Jaquizz Rodgers in this one.

Hawaii +24.5 OVER Boise State...I'm changing the motto of this site to "Betting against Boise State since 1902"...

Well, that is it for the lines...Florida State vs North Carolina tonight to get you warmed up for Saturday...I will take North Carolina because FSU is falling apart...38-30 Tarheels

Podcast to come...and a special guest expert stops by to give his take on the Penn State vs Michigan match up...
