I don't want to pick the games because if I'm wrong, I'll have a bunch of DBs on here telling me how much of an idiot I am.
But that said, I always bet against Ohio St. It seems like the last couple years those MFers couldn't cover to save their ass. Keep in mind Navy runs the option and will try to keep the clock running all game.
The problem with Auburn is they haven't had a really good offense in years. I could see them winning like 21-7 or something, but they're not a team that usually scores 35+ points and LA Tech is a decent team and can score points.
And I honestly don't know why Bama is a touchdown favorite over VT. Bama lost John Parker Wilson, Glen Coffee, and Andre Smith. Sure they still have Julio Jones but he can't do everything. VT returns Tyrod (or however you spell it) Taylor and most of their offensive starters. Not saying I expect VT to win straight up, but I figured the line would be closer to -3 or -4.
Other than that, I don't see anything wrong with the other picks.
