Guest Contributor Paul DePalma jumps in on the College Football fun with his 3 lock-em-up picks for the week, including the Washington Huskies in a blowout.
All odds courtesy of DraftKings as of 9/24.
Duke at Kansas (-7.5)
Saturday 9/24 12:00 PM EST Fox Sports 1
Don’t look now but two powerhouse college basketball teams play football today in a game of the undefeated.
Kansas coach Lance Leipod during his tenure at UWW, the Wisconsin–Whitewater Warhawks won the NCAA Division III Football Championship 5 times. Last week Junior quarterback Jalon Daniels led the Jayhawks, throwing for 158 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for a career-high 123 yards and two scores against a good Houston team away. Yes, 7 is a lot to lay on the road to a good Duke team but the Big 12 wins this one and Kansas is for real. Be sure to head over to Nate’s Pick Six for more analysis on the Jayhawks and more! Pick: Kansas -7
This journey has just begun…

Notre Dame at UNC (-2.5)
Saturday 9/24 3:30 PM EST ABC
Notre Dame goes into Chapel Hill to face a good Tar Heel team. ND has a new coach with a new staff and, as always, they are overrated. QB Drake Maye has 11 TDs and 1 int with 3 wins. The Tar Heels have worked the kinks out after the App. State game and are ready for a big performance against ND. This is a rebuilding year for the Irish. Take the home team here. Pick: North Carolina -2 1/2
Stanford at Washington (-13.5)
The Washington Huskies outplayed a very good #11 Michigan State, winning 39-28. QB Michael Penix Jr. completed 24 of 40 passes for 397 yards and four touchdowns. The Huskies are for real in the Pac-12 and should roll over a mediocre Stanford tonight. Pick: Washington -13 1/2
