Grow You Roll: College Football Week 6 Winners

What is going on at Boston College?
Welcome to the new "Grow Your Roll"!  Each week of the (rest) of the college football season, I'll be giving you a few picks (against the spread) that present a great opportunity to fatten your wallet or "Grow Your Roll."  As always, please leave you picks/comments in the comment box as well!

Pick I Like:
ARKANSAS (-9.5) over Auburn:  The Razorbacks are coming off a big comeback win over Texas A&M last week and head home to seek revenge for last year's loss at Auburn, where they allowed 65 points.  That won't happen this week.  The Arkansas offense is gathering steam, while Auburn's scored 13 points last week against an overrated South Carolina defense.  It's a tall task to win in Fayetteville, and Auburn will find that out this week.  Arkansas 35, Auburn 20

Pick I Love:
GEORGIA TECH (-14.5) over Maryland:  The Yellow Jackets are leading the country in scoring at over 51 points per game, while Maryland's offense has struggled to score all year, with the exception being a 2nd half flurry after being down 34-10 to West Virginia.  The only thing that could keep this from being a slam dunk is Tech's defense.  They haven't shut anyone down this year, and could be without star LB Jeremiah Attachou and LB Daniel Drummond.  Georgia Tech 45, Maryland 28

Grow Your Roll Game of The Week:
CLEMSON (-20.5) over Boston College:  After last week's huge road win over Virginia Tech, this has the makings of the classic letdown game, something Clemson fans know about all too well.  Except, Boston College is terrible.  They've lost home games to Northwestern, Duke and Wake Forest and were destroyed at Central Florida.  Three touchdowns seems like a lot to give up, but BC doesn't score many points, and that makes for a easy cover.  Clemson 38, Boston College 10

What are your money makers this week?  Post below!
