Crystal Ball

Double D, Boston Herald: There's money to be made laying the points and taking Alabama against Florida International, which is taking only 56 players to Tuscaloosa and starting seven freshmen.

Betting Fool, San Francisco Chronicle: He'll put down a rather large wager of 70 simoleons, take Notre Dame and give the points to Navy.

Dan Hinxman, Reno Gazette-Journal: Reno's best have a 7-1 record the past two weeks. As for this week, it's USC. The Trojans, with two weeks to prepare, are taking the Beavers out behind the woodshed.

Jon Wilner, San Jose Mercury News: He stands 21-21-3 and this is a big week if he hopes to finish over .500. His selections: Louisiana Tech, Ohio State, Rutgers, Oklahoma and USC.

Fan IQ: A look at who the experts like this week. Plus the IQ crew sent along word that Jack Nicklaus will dot the "i" in script Ohio. A YouTube look at the tradition.

Tim Griffin, San Antonio Express-News: The Wiz will toast anybody who still calls the Georgia-Florida game the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." He also picks the winner.

Jordan Adams and Drew Mangione, Doc's Sports: A rather entertaining point/counterpoint on this week's games.

Jody Demling, Louisville Courier-Journal: The 'Book. Tell the West Virginia media that the 'Book will talk to them any time. He's 43-29-2 against the number.

Tom Luicci, Newark Star-Ledger: Notre Dame should have no trouble brushing aside Navy.
