Weekend Selections

Mike Ehrmann

Who you got around the league this weekend?

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (-46) vs Elon Phoenix

Elon is really bad. Georgia Tech will make them look silly, even against a huge spread.

Jackets cover 46.

North Carolina Tar Heels (+12) @ (6) South Carolina Gamecocks

It'd be pretty neat if the ACC started the 2013 season with a win over the SEC, wouldn't it? They won't.

Gamecocks cover 12.

Louisiana Tech Bulldogs @ North Carolina State Wolfpack (-13.5)

How is it that the nation's leader in scoring offense last year is a two-touchdown underdog to unranked NC State? Well, get rid of your coach and replace him with a mediocre coach, then dump most of your offensive firepower and lose most of your linebacker and secondary firepower, and it all starts to make sense.

Wolfpack covers 13.5.

Syracuse Orange (+5) vs Penn State Nittany Lions

This game is being played in a neutral location (MetLife Stadium), and the Nittany Lions are a pretty solid team. Syracuse is going to have a rough first game with the ACC patch on their jerseys.

Penn State covers 5.

BYU Cougars @ Virginia Cavaliers (+1)

In a game where we kill two film birds with one stone, we'll see two of our future opponents match up. Somehow BYU is only a 1-point favorite here, but even though they've lost quite a bit after last year I think they'll cover.

BYU covers 1.

(1) Alabama Crimson Tide vs Virginia Tech Hokies (+19.5)

It's a pretty large spread, but I have a hard time seeing Virginia Tech keep this one within 3 touchdowns. If they can do that, I'll be terrified of them come the Thursday night in Atlanta.

Tide covers 19.5.

(5) uga bulldogs @ (8) Clemson Tigers (+2)

The Tigers will be facing a defense that had 7 guys drafted and has its prodigy at safety suspended. Lots of inexperience on defense will allow Chad Morris's offense to shine en route to a big upset.

Tigers cover 2 and win.

(11) Florida State Seminoles (-10) @ Pittsburgh Panthers

In Pitt's first-ever ACC game, they'll be hosting the 11th-ranked reigning conference and Orange Bowl champions on national television. Welcome to the bigs, gentlemen. That said, Pitt will cover the 10 but the 'Noles win straight up.

Pitt covers 10, FSU wins.
