Tribune's Picks of the Week

Matt DeYoung • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:08 AM

Grand Haven over Hudsonville

Fruitport over Spring Lake

Muskegon over Rockford

Michigan over San Diego State

Michigan State over Central Michigan

Western Michigan over Illinois

Notre Dame over Pittsburgh

LSU over West Virginia

Detroit Lions over Minnesota Vikings

Green Bay Packers over Chicago Bears

Comment: When Brady Hoke arrived at Michigan, one of the first things he did was try to get his former team, San Diego State, off the schedule. Does he know something I don’t? I just don’t see the Aztecs being able to contain Denard. U-M wins in a shootout.

Nate Thompson — Last Week, 7-3; Season: 29-11, 72.5 percent

Grand Haven over Hudsonville

Fruitport over Spring Lake

Muskegon over Rockford

San Diego State over Michigan

Michigan State over Central Michigan

Illinois over Western Michigan

Notre Dame over Pittsburgh

LSU over West Virginia

Detroit Lions over Minnesota Vikings

Chicago Bears over Green Bay Packers

Comment: No need to flip a coin for Spring Lake-Fruitport this year. Both sides will come up Trojans. Because of U-M’s shaky run defense, I’m picking an Aztec upset at the Big House.

Comments: Congrats to Notre Dame on an awesome win over MSU last week. Bucs vs. Hudsonville will be a barn-burner, and the Lions at 2-0, who would have guessed that?
