I am currently the leader in the clubhouse of our weekly pick'em challenge, but Patrick Gordon (@gx5) is closing in fast. Not too far behind is college football guru Tyler Waddell (@Tyler_Waddell). 

Every week we also bring a guest picker on to join us. Last week
 Josh Sanchez (@jnsanchez), editor for FanSided.com made his picks and finished 12-5 during a challenging week. This week we welcome Jack Blanchat to the fray. Jack is the editor of SB Nation's Stanford-themed Rule of Tree blog and a contributor to its Arkansas blog, Arkansas Fight. Follow him on Twitter at @jmblanchat -- he's a funny guy.

This week is shaping up to be a great week of college football with 4 games pitting 2 ranked teams against each other. The biggest of them all is between two undefeated ACC schools: No. 3 Clemson and No. 5 Florida State. Clemson historically has a penchant for losing big games -- we'll see if they can overcome that this weekend. 

Now on to the picks...
