College Football Week 4 – Scott Van Pelts Winner

We went 4-4 last week. Three over the year. But a few of the games that didn’t make the TV list are all successful – so you know what we’re doing? We’re just expanding the list. That’s not too difficult to figure out, is it? Nine picks is too many, Scott. Says who? you are not my boss This is just a TV show and these are free. You can just ignore them or yell at me if they lose, it’s ok. But it’s nine. Just so we’re clear.


Virginia at Syracuse (-10, 53.5)
7 p.m. ET on ESPN, JMA Wireless Dome, Syracuse, New York

Van Pelt’s Pick: Virginia (+10)

We’re 0-2 on Friday picks and you know I hate losing on Friday night, it makes everyone sad. So, let’s get lucky and compete against the team that’s 2-0? Yep – that’s what we do. Virginia in what they now call the Carrier Dome.

SVP: 5-2 all-time picking Virginia


Missouri near Auburn
12 p.m. ET, Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, Alabama

Van Pelt’s Pick: Missouri (+7)

Missouri was playing a street game and just looked awful. But Auburn’s on the battle bus, and we’re picking up some candy and mizzou on a noon on the prairie.

SVP: Lost 5 Missouri picks in a row

TCU at SMU (-2, 70.5)
12 p.m. ET on ESPNU, Gerald J. Ford Stadium, Dallas

Van Pelt’s Pick: SMU (+2)

I saw the ponies last week and I’m convinced. I’m still not sure how my terps won the game, but we’re home on SMU.

SVP: 3-1 All Time Picking SMU at home

No. 22 Texas (-6.5, 60) at Texas Tech
3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN, Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock, Texas

Van Pelt’s Pick: Texas Tech (+7)

Let’s go to Lubbock and go Guns Up and support the Red Raiders getting the Tudder against Texas.

SVP: 7-1 all-time picking an unranked team vs a ranked Texas

No. 15 Oregon (-6.5, 57.5) in Washington State
4 p.m. ET, Martin Stadium, Pullman, Washington

Van Pelt’s Pick: Washington State (+6.5)

Where does it get weirder, Lubbock or Pullman? Rhetorical question… Give us the Coogs at home against Oregon who looked great last week.

SVP: 6-4 all-time picking vs. Oregon

State of Arkansas at Old Dominion (-5, 56.5)
6 p.m. ET, SB Ballard Stadium, Norfolk, Virginia

Van Pelt’s Pick: State of Arkansas (+5)

Did someone say sunbelt? What if it’s a conference game? I don’t know, but we want to find out when the state of Arkansas takes on Old Dominion in Norfolk. Red Wolves to keep this close.

SVP: 3-1 all-time picks of Sun Belt Conference games

Wisconsin in State #3 Ohio (-19, 57)
7:30 p.m. ET on ABC, Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

Van Pelt’s Pick: Wisconsin (+19)

Keep it close. That’s asking a lot when you’re playing Ohio State, who last saw 77 goals in Toledo, but the Badgers aren’t the Rockets, with all due respect. Sconnie plus the big number in the shoe.

SVP: 5-2 all-time for Wisconsin

State of Kansas ranked 6th Oklahoma (-12.5, 53)
8:00 p.m. ET, Memorial Stadium, Norman, Oklahoma

Van Pelt’s Pick: Kansas State (+12.5)

are we done nope A few more states to hand out. Kansas State just lost to Tulane. Oklahoma just wiped out Nebraska. It takes courage to put on the purple here, but we have courage. brains? Not so sure. But EMAW and KSU plus double digits in Norman.

SVP: 6-3 all-time picking vs. Oklahoma in conference games

No. 7 USC (-6.5, 71) in the state of Oregon
9:30 p.m. ET, Reser Stadium, Corvallis, Oregon

Van Pelt’s Pick: Oregon State (+6.5)

USC is an offensive machine. At some point, giving up all those yards and the obscene difference in turnover has to make up for it. Looking for a good one in Corvallis. Beaver Nation – stand up.

SVP: 19-12 all times an unranked Pac-12 team is selected against a ranked Pac-12 team

That’s a 9… and there were a few more — like always. Can’t spend the whole card, the show only lasts an hour.
