Here are my picks:

Wednesday, November 28
Illinois at Clemson (I think Clemson is tougher this year and Illinois has been terrible.)
Virginia at Michigan State (Virginia has been terrible; the bad start for rookie head coach Tina Thompson continues)
Rutgers at Virginia Tech (I cannot help it. We Irish fans love our Mabreys)
Indiana at Wake Forest (Wake is abysmal, Indiana transfers helping make up for graduation losses.)
Duke at Wisconsin (Tsipis needs more time to build his program, McCallie needs 1 more season to destroy hers.)

Day One: ACC 3-2 winner

Thursday, November 29
Penn State at Florida State (Penn St has been declining quickly and FSU showed a bit of life against Iowa.)
Nebraska at Louisville (The loss of Diop won't affect this result. Note: I HATE ACL tears)
Georgia Tech at Maryland (Maryland looked great against South Carolina, GTech looked bad against Houston but good against Georgia)
Syracuse at Minnesota (Gophers can score, but can they beat the press enough to win? No, they cannot.)
Michigan at NC State (Tough match-up, but I'll go with the home team.)
Pittsburgh at Northwestern (Pitt has improved, but Northwestern is still better. Ask Duke. Or Green Bay. Or Florida.)
Iowa at Notre Dame (ND is battle tested already. Iowa split their tough contests (beat WVU, lost to FSU). Just don't be caught looking forward to Sunday, Irish!)
North Carolina at Ohio State (tOSU has not yet jelled amd they're presently a hot mess. UNC is less messy.)
Miami at Purdue (I think Miami has played better, but neither has been great. Probably should go with the home team here, but maybe my ACC bias is showing.)

Day Two: ACC 7-2.

Overall ACC 10-4, but if you correct for my ACC bias, it's probably 9-5.

PSU has the injury bug. Green is out. Carter left the last game in a boot.

Nebraska hasn't tried going Cain Cain Cain until they stop her, yet.

'Cuse at Minney, yeah that'll be a donnybrook. Let's get the whole board worked up!!

Michigan has looked good.

Gustafson v Shepard tape from her Nebraska days, doesn't quite capture where they are now. Good test case for how far back to 100% Turner is, how many minutes McGraw has her matched against Gustafson.

Ohio State? I thought they weren't even bothering to field a team this year. What the?

Vegas called. They laughed at me after my 5-4 on day 2. Sad
