The picks, week 8

From Edsall's call today: Lutrus and Sio Moore are still out. Blidi Wreh-Wilson is probable. No decision yet on a punt returner, either McClain, Nick Williams or both. Edsall says he's still deciding at strong safety, too. He'd like to use only one guy there in all situations.

Practices went well the last two days. No troubles focusing. The guys Edsall said he was worried about emotionally, Kashif Moore and Michael Smith, both practiced both days and were fine. They told Edsall they were ready to go.

West Virginia quarterback Jarrett Brown is a game-time decision Saturday after a concussion. Geno Smith will play if Brown can't go. Edsall said the Mountaineer game plan won't change much. Both quarterbacks throw more than Pat White, and tailback Noel Devine and receiver Jock Sanders are the big-play threats.

Quickly, here are the picks for the week. None of my silly commentary, maybe next week. I tossed in a few extra games, though.

Game 1: Minnesota (+17) over OHIO STATE
Game 2: South Florida (+7) over PITT
Game 3: Connecticut (+7) over WEST VIRGINIA
Game 4: Arkansas (+6.5) over MISSISSIPPI
Game 5: CINCINNATI (-18) over Louisville
Game 6: Boston College (+8) over NOTRE DAME
Game 7: ALABAMA (-14) over Tennessee
Game 8: Akron (+10) over SYRACUSE
Game 9: MICHIGAN (+4.5) over Penn State
Game 10: KANSAS (+7.5) over Oklahoma
Game 11: MIAMI-FL. (-5.5) over Clemson
Game 12: TEXAS TECH (-21.5) over Texas A&M
Game 13: Iowa (-1) over MICHIGAN STATE
Game 14: Vanderbilt (+13) over SOUTH CAROLINA
Game 15: Texas Christian (-2.5) over BYU
Game 16: LSU (-7.5) over Auburn
Game 17: Florida (-22.5) over MISSISSIPPI STATE
Game 18: Oregon State (+21) over USC
