The Triangle Prophets, Week 7

Every Friday, a group of fearless webmasters and sports fanatics from around the Triangle will gather to predict five college football games against the spread. Every Duke, Carolina, and N.C. State game will be featured, along with a smattering of high profile non-Triangle games. As the season goes along, we’ll keep the standings updated and see who emerges as the one true prophet. Make your predictions in the comment section. Each week, we’ll feature any and all commenters who pick all 5 games correctly.

Current Standings

6. The Devil Wolf, TRB – 14.5 points

7.Jim Young, Editor, ACCSports.com – 13.5 points

8.James Henderson, Publisher, Pack Pride – 12.5 points

James Henderson began the long, slow crawl out of the basement with a huge 4-point week, and John Watson moved up to second with the same score. Yours truly notched 3 to move into the overall lead, but there’s not much space between the top and the bottom.

Here are my 0-5 picks…

Florida St. (-13) over DUKE
Miami over NORTH CAROLINA (-3) – wait, really? Why the heck is UNC favored? Home games only count when attendance is greater than fifteen people.
Michigan over MICHIGAN STATE (-2.5)
Arizona St to cover vs. OREGON (-14.5)
TEXAS A&M (-9.5) over Baylor
