The college football picks are in and we are going with Baylor all the way baby! Looking at the spread (-35.5) in Baylor’s favor, we just don't see how Southern Methodist can keep up with them!

This is gonna be a horror show for SMU. I doubt that the late great Wes Craven could create something this ugly! SMU finished last season 1-11 getting their only win in the final game of the season. The Mustangs have a horrible D, they can't stop the run and are even worse against the pass. The only positive I see in this for SMU is the recent seating and audio video upgrades done to their stadium over the past few seasons. 

Baylor is ranked 4th in the nation and head coach Art Briles has 18 of 22 starters returning. The Bears finished last season ranked 7th in the country the best in school history. This team has it all going to five straight bowl games. College football odds makers remember that these teams matched up last August 31st with Baylor lighting SMU up 45-0! Defensive end Shawn Oakman is a freak of nature to say the least. At 6’9, 280 pounds, Shawn is just a beast. In a spot start last season QB Seth Russell threw for 438 yards and 5 touchdowns in only one half! Ladies and gentlemen this one will be over by halftime. Back the Bears with your college football picks! Baylor 55-17!
