A.J. Klein

Iowa State linebacker from 2009-2012. Recorded triple-digit tackles in his last three seasons; also recorded a forced fumble, five interceptions, and four touchdowns. He currently plays for the Carolina Panthers.

Oklahoma at Iowa State:

Iowa State has been playing really well recently in my opinion. In order to win this game, the defense has to step up and force some turnovers and stop the run game. ISU wins in a thriller.

Northwestern at Iowa:

Even though it hurts to say this… I’ll take the Hawkeyes over Northwestern.

Florida vs Georgia:

Georgia wins this one easily. Think they are by far the better football team with potent running attack led by Nick Chubb w/ the absence of Todd Gurley.

TCU at West Virginia:

This is the toughest game to pick this week. Could go either way in my opinion. I’ll take TCU in a shootout. (I wonder how many total points will be scored)

Auburn at Ole Miss:

I’m taking the fighting Cam Newtons [Auburn] in this one, but it would not surprise me if Ole Miss comes out hot after last week’s late game loss to LSU.

Arkansas at Mississippi State:

I’ll take Mississippi State. No upset going to happen here. MSU remains unbeaten.

Stanford at Oregon:

Another toss up game here. Stanford has played Oregon very competitively the past few years. Should be interesting to see who comes out on top. I’m taking the Ducks.

Texas at Texas Tech:

I don’t think Texas Tech even has defense left after that embarrassment against TCU. You can’t win without a defense. Longhorns win.

Arizona at UCLA:

I’m taking Arizona in this one. I know they have a great offense ranking top 10 nationally in yards per game… and that’s all I know about the Pac-12.

Utah at Arizona State:

I took Utah last week and I’ll take them again here. This should be a fun game to watch.
