All hail the college football mismatches. They allow the powers that be to post relatively easy wins with minimal risks. The sisters of the poor get a check. And prognosticators who pick without a betting line get to pad their stats before hitting that part of the schedule where outcomes of many games actually are in doubt before kickoff. The BuckeyeXtra collective was accurate with its picks last week to the tune of an 84 percent success rate. Don't expect that to continue.

This week's picks (pickers listed alphabetically and certainly not in order of importance -- or expertise):

Rob Dewolf, BuckeyeXtra editor

Ohio State 52, Hawaii 13: Buckeyes manage to avoid looking ahead to Northern Illinois. Cost of a ticket for this one would be better spent on having some Hula Pie flown in from Duke's.

Marshall over Ohio
Temple over Cincinnati
South Carolina over Kentucky

Ohio State 62, Hawaii 7: The Buckeyes probably could have played Hawaii on Wednesday and still won. The quick turnaround might result in some shaky moments, but there's just too big a talent disparity to think this remains competitive for long.
