Hey! We are already into week three of college football and are rocking on the Drive and the College Football Hour Glass.  If you are just now hearing about our analytics on the Hour Glass, you can go here, to access all the articles and data. Our projections and predictions were done back on April 7th of this year.

Through two weeks our analytics are 93-13 (winning percentage of 88 percent), and while you always want to be better – so far there is none better.

Week three offers some interesting matchups like Clemson on the road at Louisville, LSU at Mississippi State, Oklahoma State at Pittsburgh, Texas at USC and Tennessee at Florida. As always there will be an upset or two, a close finish and surprise – it’s what college football is all about.

Reminder, start your game day with us on ESPN the Zone 105.9 as we have the College Football Tailgate Show from 8-10 on Saturdays. You can hear that show in the Jackson metro area on your FM dial on 105.9 OR you can stream the show on this very website. We have weekly giveaways based on YOUR picks and you get a chance to get into our end of the season pick em contest for our Hotel and Restaurant Supply mega grill.

We got you covered on picks, shows, gifts and more – as always reach out to me on Twitter – @jakewim
