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.

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?

Comments: Bucs bounce back, Fruitport gets win No. 5, and sorry, Rob, I have to pick MSU, even though you consider me the MSU jinx and have asked me never to pick them again.”
