ATS picks for all games are evaluated against the first available spread, with pick'em games treated as a one point spread for this purpose only because there are no ties in college football.

Once again I'll be keeping track of games where my methods indicate a particularly good chance of a correct pick against the pointspread. Picks against early spreads (basically the first spread available after I complete these ratings) are the ARGH Early Bird Picks, and are listed below. Picks against spreads (generally Wednesday or later during the season) that have moved to a favorable number are ARGH Buzzer Beater Picks, and will be posted when available.

ARGH Early Bird Picks this week are:

- Georgia -18.5
- Cincinnati +23
- UCLA -11
- Wisconsin -7
- Navy-Rice over 54.5

ARGH Buzzer Beater Picks this week are:

- Akron -8.5
- Arkansas State -8
- Connecticut +3
