So the crowds made a couple of interesting picks in Week Three. First of all, two-thirds think that OU will have little trouble with Florida State, which I found a little odd. Beyond that, Iowa State was predicted to beat UConn in Storrs. Now, that may have been my fault -- somehow I typed "Colorado" into the google form instead of "Connecticut," but a) I wouldn't have picked them to win at Colorado either, and b) them's the breaks. Sorry, UConn.

Week Three Results:

  • Iowa State (59%) > UConn by 6
  • Texas (64%) > UCLA by 9
  • Oklahoma (70%) > Florida State by 11
  • Oklahoma State (95%) > Tulsa by 19
  • Texas Tech (96%) > New Mexico by 19
  • Georgia Tech (99%) > Kansas by 16
  • Texas A&M (99%) > Idaho by 28
  • Baylor (100%) > Stephen F. Austin by 25
  • Kansas State (100%) > Kent State by 20
  • Mizzou (100%) > Western Illinois by 32

Conference play officially begins in Week Four, and both of the initial matchups feature teams ranked in the top half of the conference. Mizzou travels to Norman, while Oklahoma State heads to College Station. Meanwhile, K-State heads to Miami to face ... well, who the hell knows what team they will face there? A full-strength Miami should be pretty good; a Shapiro-related-suspensions-addled Miami could be terrible. Have fun with that one.
