College Capper: Picking Winners Week 2
College Capper: Picking Winners Week 2

This article is part of our College Capper series.

CHRIS' PICKS

A winning week to open the season feels like a letdown following FSU's dismal showing Monday night. Week 2 is a classic overreaction week to the one game most team's have played. With that in mind, I'll openly admit to being stuck in central Pennsylvania last weekend amidst repeated flash floods, which somehow still allowed my son's soccer tournament to happen. That's relevant in that I watched few games, so hopefully these picks are fresh and not too focused on the season's opening games.

Liberty +9.5
at Army

I picked on Army last week, while also not having the guts to admit how much I loved Liberty as an outright winner over ODU. Hopefully, I'm not going to the well too often, too quickly. Army, predictably, struggled to run at Duke last week with a new quarterback. It surprisingly faired well throwing the ball, but that's not its game. Liberty, on the other hand, took its offense from FCS to FBS in stride, hanging 52 points on the Monarchs. The Flames have a terrific quarterback-wide receiver combo in Stephen Calvert and Antonio Gandy-Golden, and I think they'll continue to score at West Point. I worry a little the Flames will press if the Knights' offense scores while burning a bunch of clock, but this isn't the juggernaut Army offense from a year ago. Liberty has a great shot at an outright win, so getting 10 points sits well with me.

Wisconsin –34.5
vs. New Mexico
