Every week CUTigers will publish picks from the CUTigers staff, with all selections coming against the spread. (Anybody can pick straight up winners, we have to make things difficult).

This week's games are as follows:

Georgia Tech at Miami (-5.5)
Boston College at Clemson (-7)
Nebraska at Virginia Tech (-5)
Tennessee at Florida (-29.5)
FSU at BYU (-7.5)

Each winner is picked against the spread, with one game from each contestant being tabbed "Lock of the Week."

For each regular game that is picked correctly, one point is awarded. For each "Lock of the Week" that is picked correctly, two points are awarded.

Keep in mind that this is for entertainment purposes only and all picks are made against the spread.

Last but not least, whoever comes in last place each week will be given the "Turkey of the Week" award. CUTigers.com intern Cadence Turpin went 2-3 a week ago, capturing the award for the first time.

All other "prognosticators" went above .500, with Don "a legend in his own mind" Munson going an impressive 4-1.
