Rock Chalk Pick'em: Week 7

We once again make a bunch of picks, fully expecting at least one of us to be absolutely horrid at it this week.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It's an early start for us this week, as there are too many good games on Thursday to ignore in our picks (and not enough ones on Saturday to fill in the slate).  After a bad week last week, I'm looking to rebound with some picks all out on my own.  Will it pay off?

Since we are picking some of the games tonight, we are getting started early with this.  As such, I'll give score predictions for the first few games, then we'll add in the rest later.

Auburn at Kentucky

I'm not sure that I have tons of confidence in the Wildcats, but I have absolutely no confidence in this Auburn team.  The home field makes all the difference. Kentucky 31, Auburn 21

18 UCLA at 15 Stanford

I know that Stanford has turned it around since the baffling loss to Northwestern to start the year, but I'm still not sold on this offense.  UCLA has had their own hiccups, but they seem like the stronger team coming in.  UCLA 35, Stanford 27
