After being beaten by just one KUsports.com reader in last week's Wanna Whack Woodling contest, Journal-World sports editor Chuck Woodling was beaten by 12 participants this week.
Woodling went 4-1, missing only Pittsburgh's victory over Texas A&M. A dozen entries had all five games chosen correctly, though, led by this week's winner Gerald Tinnon of Manhattan. Tinnon chose KU as a 31-17 winner over Missouri, giving him the tiebreaker advantage and a "We Whacked Woodling" T-shirt for the victory.
Sixty KUsports.com readers tied Woodling with four correct picks.
Check out Chuck's picks below and make your own. See if you can join the dozens who have proven their footall-picking skills are better than Woodling's.
Colorado 36, Baylor 8
Baylor has won two straight. Colorado has lost two in a row. Both schools took last Saturday off. What does it all mean? Nothing. Buffs will bash Bears as usual.
Nebraska 38, Troy State 0
Troy State stunned Kansas State-killer Marshall last week, but Trojans will lay a goose egg in Lincoln. Cornmen lead nation in total defense and QB Jammal Lord is beginning to believe he can actually throw a TD pass.
Kansas State 29, Texas 26
Longhorns stunned Wildcats in Manhattan last year and 'Cats will return the favor in Austin. If Arkansas can sock Horns at home, so can K-State, especially with QB Ell Roberson back in harness.
Oklahoma 23, Iowa State 20
Look out here. Sooners have won 35 of last 37 meetings with Cyclones, but Iowa State will scare dickens out of them in Ames.
Oklahoma State 36, UL-Lafayette 0
Since losing to Nebraska in season opener, Cowboys have fattened up on feeble nonconference foes. Coach Les Miles must be hoping his players remember what good teams are like when they play host to K-State next week.
Texas Tech 84, Texas A&M 75
Goodness gracious. With the kickoff at 9 p.m. and both teams likely to throw about 50 times (Tech might throw 100 times), this one could be an all-nighter if it goes into overtime.
: Kansas and Missouri are idle this week.
(The contest is currently closed. Good luck to all who entered.)
