Happy Halloween to everyone!
Eli’s hold on the lead since week 1 is getting a little scary for my chances of winning this years picks. Even spooky, one might say. It is getting a little out of control. And, to think I am actually trying to beat him.
Why did I name this blog Son Knows Best?
The 9-year old went 7 – 3 again to move his overall record to 76 – 29. I went 6 – 4 to my overall record to a dismal 47 – 33.
There are a lot of good games this weekend. Enjoy your costumes and football as we celebrate the spookiness of ghosts and ghouls. Have fun…I know we will.
Georgia Tech @ Clemson
Old school football comes to Pickens County and the Tigers will be ready. The defense has 2 weeks to stew after the L against Syracuse. Paul Johnson’s crew will bleed the clock as much as possible but it want matter. Tigers big.

Cov’s Call — Clemson 31 – 13
Vanderbilt @ South Carolina
The Commodores come to the Capital City with bumps and bruises from their last few weeks as USC is refreshed off a bye week. Vandy can’t stop the run and the Gamecocks run wild. The USC defense goes crazy in 2nd half.

Cov’s Call — USC 27 – 17
Penn State @ Ohio State
Big game here in The Shoe and PSU is the underdog. I don’t think J.T. Barrett can beat them with his most recent games against good defenses. Watch out for the Lions QB Trace McSorely: will help win the game with his feet…and toughness.

Cov’s Call — Penn State 24 – 20
Florida vs. Georgia
This game always goes against the script. 2017 will be no different. I don’t believe UF’s offense will show out but their defense will play better and keep things close. UGA’s run game gets them the W but closer than the Vegas experts think.

Cov’s Call — UGA 23 – 16
N.C. State @ Notre Dame
This might be the most entertaining game of the weekend. Irish need it to keep playoff hopes alive. The Wolf pack are good and will get their $$$ worth in South Bend. If NCSU can make ND throw the ball they will be successful. I think they do and set up a big game against Clemson next week.

Michigan State @ Northwestern
EZCN — Sparty squeaks out a victory in Evanston.
Cov’s Call — Sparty defends the Wildcats in the Windy City.
