We're back for our second addition of Pick 'Em where we try and outsmart the oddsmakers. We finished the picks one day earlier this week so that we could get them i before the N.C. State game tonight.

N.C. State at Cincinnati (-7)
Riley - Cincy 31-27 (State Covers)
Rob - Cincy 38-28
N.C. State is really going to struggle trying to stop this Bearcats team from scoring. If this game wasbeing played in Carter-Finley, I would give State a chance, but I just think there are too many holes in this defense.
North Carolina at Georgia Tech(-6.5)
Riley - Georgia Tech 27-21 (Carolina Covers)
Rob - Georgia Tech 35- 28
Georgia Tech's rushing game has been video game like so far this season. Carolina's rush defense has been solid this season, but Tech's rushing game is just too much. If Georgia Tech gets the lead, I wouldn't be shocked if Bryn Renner throws several interceptions trying to catch up.
Temple at Maryland (-9)
Riley - Temple 24-21
Rob - Maryland 28-21 (Temple Covers)
I'm not sure if Temple was impressive against Penn St., or Penn St. was just awful. Either way, we expect this to be a one possession game. Temple should cover, and Riley believes the will win straight up.
UMass at Boston College (No line)
Riley - Boston College 17-14
Rob - Boston College 17-13
Somehow Boston College will find a way to win this one at home. They better take advantage of this opportunity, because the Deacs will be well rested when they head to Chestnut Hill next Saturday.
Tulane at Duke (-10)
Riley - Duke 34-14
Rob - Duke 31-20
Duke looks to go on a winning streak. The Blue Devils should be able to put up plenty of points and gain additional confidence headed into their matchup at F.I.U.
Florida State at Clemson (-2.5)
Riley - Florida State 24-17
Rob - Clemson 21-13
Differing opinions here, but I think Clemson has too much offensive firepower for Florida St. Of course, Riley beat me in pick 'em yesterday.
Southern Miss at Virginia (-3)
Riley - Virginia 31-24
Rob - Virginia 30-24
Virginia should get back to their winning ways this week as they take on Southern Miss. Expect more of the Virginia you saw in the first two games.
Virginia Tech (-20.5) at Marshall
Riley - Virginia Tech 35-10
Rob - Virginia Tech 45-13
This game has the feel of the Appalachian State game. Virginia Tech is going to get up early, and then keep their foot on the accelerator.
Kansas St. at Miami (-12.5)
Riley - Miami 38-21
Rob - Miami 27-17 (Kansas State Covers)
This Hurricanes team is very athletic, but under Al Golden they play a disciplined and methodical brand of offense. I think they'll feel comfortable in the 4th, but I wouldn't feel comfortable if I took them to cover.
