SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — North Carolina was too big and too quick for Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish made seven of their first 13 shots to open a nine-point lead in the first half, but wore down under the pressure of North Carolina’s athleticism. The Tar Heels forced 17 turnovers and had a 44-26 advantage in the paint en route to a 73-62 victory Saturday, their fifth straight win.

Last week I was 4-1 with my only loss coming at the hands of Northwestern who failed to cover the spread as a favorite. Pretty good for a guy whom Taylor and Marc rip every week on not knowing college football.
I will be part of the Pigskin Pick ‘Em NFL picks that we will have here on the website beginning next week but for the time being, I will give you some college games that I like.
Finally in the NFL, Manti Te’o is looking to give football fans everywhere reasons to forget about his fake girlfriend scandal. His performance with the San Diego Chargers may be just the thing to jolt his name back to football relevance.
