Dick Harmon: Jimmer Fredette talks about Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, whether student-athletes should be paid
This week's college football predictions:
Florida 37, Miami 24: In-state battle early and the Hurricanes don’t have enough wind.
Utah 42, Weber State 10: Utah works on solidifying its defense and this is a perfect game to gain confidence — as designed. But be careful: Weber State's defense broke Riley Nelson's back a year ago.
Oregon 48, Virginia 14: The No. 2 team in the country will go fast and hard and show folks in Charlottesville how it is done.
Ohio State 48, San Diego State 10: Urban Meyer’s tune-up, as if one is needed.
Utah State 34, Air Force 21: Look for the Aggies to take a quick step atop the MWC after the weekend.
South Carolina 28, Georgia 24: Will Georgia really start 0-2? Yes.
Michigan 21, Notre Dame 17: Revenge is sweet. Goes down like lemonade.
Oregon State 17, Hawaii 14: Don’t think the Beavers will start 0-2, but I whiffed picking them over Eastern Washington last week.
USC 34, Washington State 14: Mike Leach is making progress, but not in L.A.
Stanford 28, San Jose State 10: Bay Area showdown and the Cardinal soars.
Texas 34, BYU 19: Longhorns have too much firepower as the Cougars continue in tinker mode.
Last week: 5-4 (.556)
