Hlastradamus has made some unfortunate choices over the centuries. But his picks the last three weeks rank among the worst stretches of his career as a seer, sage, soothsayer, and Wal-mart greeter.

But the prophet is resilient. Here comes some gold, Jerry, gold!

1. Iowa +9.5 at Penn State. Why? Because Hlastradamus lives in Iowa and wants to pander to Hlog readers. Why else? Because that's a lot of points and he doesn't believe Penn State is any more of a Top 5 team than Ole Miss.

2, Virginia Tech +2 vs. Miami. It's at Blacksburg, and the Hokies are the equals of the Hurricanes, if not more.

3. Georgia Tech -2.5 vs. North Carolina. Home-field advantage. Sometimes it's as simple as that for the mystic.

4. Notre Dame -7 at Purdue. The Boilermakers are not good.

5. Arkansas State -2 vs. Troy. Just to get a little interest going in Arkansas State around here. If Iowa loses Saturday, next week's Arkansas State-Iowa game may not exactly be the social event of the year.
