Do I even want to try picking football games?

Three games for the local (where I used to live anyway) teams this weekend, plus two for my current locals. Here we go.

The Oregon Ducks come up to Pullman to take on the beloved Cougars. This is an odd game. Neither team has played well, but WSU is 3-1 while Oregon is 1-3. Either team can win this game, it's the classic "pick-em" match, but I'll go for WSU. I think the Cougs have playmakers on defense that Oregon lacks.

Okay, if you thought that the Washington-San Jose State game would be important before the season started, you deserve a medal. Now, with the Huskies 0-4 and on the verge of imploding and the Spartans come in off an amazing 70-63 win over Rice. Will the Huskies get this one? Yeah, probably, SJSU's defense has been run over by Morgan State and SMU, and even UW should score enough points to win. Will this turn the season around? Probably not.

San Diego State, fresh off yet another loss to UCLA, opens it's MWC season at a much-improved Wyoming team. While Joe Glenn is turning the Cowboys around, SDSU is just too talented, and should be angry after a poor showing against the Bruins.

In the NFL, the San Diego Super Chargers take on another difficult task. After beating the Titans at home, now the Jaguars come a-calling. Jacksonville, which is 3-1 despite scoring like 12 points all year, are better than Tennessee. The Bolts also have serious problems playing well consecutive weeks. Jax dominates this one, but the score make it look closer.

Okay, this is the big one: the unbeaten Seahawks at home against the Hated Rams. This one is gonna be close: St. Louis comes in a bit desperate. They know if Seattle wins this, it's creates quite a gap in the NFC West. Still, the 'Hawks are playing too well to lose this one.
