Saturday Selections: Florida-Toledo thread

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's gameday. 

Finally. 

Swamp

I'm late on this week’s 6-pack of picks (sad, cause it’s only Week 1) but here they are:

* Toledo (+23.5) at Florida

* Alabama (-20) vs. Virginia Tech (ATL) 

* Georgia (-1.5) at Clemson

* LSU (-4.5) vs. TCU (JERRY WORLD)

* Oklahoma State (-12) vs. Mississippi State

* Florida State (-10) at Pittsburgh 

Gators kickoff in just under 30 minutes. I think they’ll win ugly (when don’t they lately) but with so many injuries and suspensions is should be a close game. ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit picked a Toledo upset. 

PREGAME NEWS & NOTES

- Defensive tackle Jay-nard Bostwick is not suspended for today’s opener and will play, according to a UAA spokesperson.

- Tailback Matt Jones (illness) warmed up in full pads (as anticipated) but will not play. The sophomore appears certain to play at Miami next weekend.

- Gator Bowl representatives are in attendance. They must love free tickets.

- Suspended linebacker Antonio Morrison, cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy and defensive tackle Darious Cummings were spotted wearing street clothes on the sidelines.

Enjoy the weekend, everybody.
