Most of the match-ups this week are pretty clearcut. I’m going out on a limb and picking Maryland at home over a demoralized Miami squad. I’m also breaking from the crowd and picking Army to upset Northern Illinois in DeKalb.  If Dan Persa was healthy enough to play at full speed – he is doubtful this week – I would pick Northwestern over Boston College and their thin secondary without any hesitation. As it is, I am doubting my decision to call for a Wildcat win.
