Texas Christian a. Clemson (AF!) - As a Wisconsin fan and given what happened in East Lansing last season, I was tempted to make that game our pick. Then, I considered Houston/Texas Tech; chances are good the teams will combine for 100 points at least. In the end, though, TCU/Clemson won out for two reasons: one, it seems likely that TCU will start the season ranked somewhere around #20 and I can't say I know much of anything about them (what can I say, I haven't gotten to the Mountain West part of the SportingNews college football guide); two, while putting together the list of "games to watch" I was surprised at the number of times Clemson showed up as opponents. At least somebody at the SportingNews thinks they're worth a damn, so that's good enough for us. Watching this game will allow me to kill two birds (seeing what the deal is with both teams) with one stone. And probably, like two or three beers.
