Viva Pick ‘Em: A great slate of games ahead this weekend

Kendall has the lead for now, while Jack languishes at the botom.

Pick ‘em is one of the most fun things we don on staff once conference play rolls around. The slate of games is always strong, and we finally know enough about some of these teams to actually make educated guesses.

This week, the Iron Skillet is the underrated game of the week. SMU is wanting to make a statement, and TCU wants to prove they are finally back to competing in the Big 12. The Aggies take on the Hogs in what will either be another in a long line of silly games from those teams, or a total blowout.

Is Baylor legit? Is Notre Dame very overrated? We will find out both of those things this week as well.
