Now how did I do with my offensive picks for the week?
-Tulsa offense vs Rice offense: Tulsa scored the most points this week, but they’re not a sleeper by any stretch. Rice scored 653 points this week. David Johnson did throw four touchdown passes despite not having many yards. One hit, one miss.
-BYU offense vs Utah State: BYU had 706 points against Utah State. Though that’s not terrible, it’s not one of the better performances as I predicted. Miss.
-Oklahoma offense vs Baylor: Oklahoma finished 4th this week in total points. Hit.
-Memphis offense vs UAB: Memphis scored 728 points against UAB. See BYU above. Miss.
-Bowling Green offense vs Eastern Michigan: BG only scored 601 points against Eastern Michigan. What’s worse? They lost the game, too. Miss.
-Louisiana-Lafayette offense vs Louisiana-Monroe: The Cajuns set a school record for total yards in a game in this one. Fenroy had three TD runs of 50-plus yards as he almost hit 300 for the game. Hit.
-Akron offense vs Kent State: Akron had only 541 points against Kent State. Miss.

So I had three hits, and five misses. However, the three hits I had all hit 1,000 points for the week in total scoring, so I guess it’s not terrible. I’ll try to do better next week.
