Streaking the Lawn ACC Pick 'Em: Week 3

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Show off your NCAA football knowledge and compete for prizes in Streaking the Lawn's ACC Pick 'Em Challenge

Virginia may be headed into a bye week, but the rest of the world somehow goes on. There are 7 ACC teams in action in out-of-conference games this week, and one conference showdown between Georgia Tech and Duke (is showdown too strong there?)

If you don't remember the rules: Post your picks for the 8 ACC games this week down in the comments. (Remember, we are picking against the spread; if you pick FSU in the Nevada-FSU matchup, you actually picking them to "cover the spread" and win by more than 34 points). Here's a link to last week's competition.

At the end of the season, the three commenters with the best records win "Keep Calm and Streak the Lawn" t-shirts! You only need to pick 80% of games to qualify, so if you haven't played yet, it's not too late to hop on in.

Week 3's staff picks are below...and we are still all getting beaten by a girl.

Matchup Consensus Game Preview
Nevada @ FSU (-34) FSU Alright, Florida State. You claim to be a Top 10 team? Let's see you flex those muscles. -BL
Wagner @ Syracuse (-27) Syracuse Wagner's home loss last week to a school called "Merrimack" doesn't inspire much confidence in their ability to keep this one close.-BS
New Mexico @ Pitt (-21.5) New Mexico Pitt shouldn't struggle at all with New Mexico, but 21.5 points is a huge point spread for a middling ACC squad like Pitt (that was weird to type) to cover. -BL
Virginia Tech (-7.5) @ ECU VPISU ECU looked pretty bad against a really bad FAU team. Yea, I hate myself too. - WC
Maryland (-7) @ UConn Maryland This might be the first time we have ever unanimously agreed on something positive for Maryland - TM
Louisana-Monroe @ Wake Forest (-3.5) Wake Forest Wake isn't great, but won't need to be to beat a Sun Belt team by more than a FG at home. -PG
Georgia Tech (-10.5) @ Duke GT I should be, but I'm just not a Duke believer yet. I think Georgia Tech's fancy option offense will prove too much for a still-up-and-coming Duke team. Devils, though a decent squad, get routed. -BL
BC @ Southern Cal (-14) USC BC looked pretty legit in blowing out Wake last week, but the Trojans, with the refs on their side (yep, still bitter), are a whole different animal -BS

I tallied up the scores from the first two weeks - please feel free to check your numbers. I did it manually and, though I have yet to make a mistake in my life to date, there's a first time for everything.
