We are currently five days away from the first game of the 2010 season, and it can't get here soon enough. It's hard to believe that we're almost here, but the eight-month college football hiatus is finally coming to a close. I thought I'd continue a tradition from last season and set up a prediction thread for this week's game. I'll keep tabs of the "closest to the actual" winners for each week's game. Good luck to all predictors! Entries are accepted until an hour before kickoff (5 PM Central).
Arkansas State is a Sun Belt team, but a decent Sun Belt team. In recent years they've beaten Texas A&M and put a scare into eventual Orange Bowl champs Iowa. They're not a team to be taken lightly, and I don't think Coach Chizik and company are doing so. The Vegas line (as of right now) is 31 points. Seems a little high to me, but those folks usually know what they're doing. As for my prediction...
