PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – With the first week of the season in the books, Local 10 sports reporter Clay Ferraro is leading the pack in the college football picks.
Ferraro has a one-game lead on Local 10 sports director Will Manso and Local 10 sports reporter Andrea Brody, who are tied for second with a 10-3 record. Local 10 meteorologist Julie Durda is in last place with a 9-4 record.
Nobody on the panel saw BYU's 33-28 victory at Nebraska coming. The Cornhuskers, who lost on a "Hail Mary" pass as time expired, visit Miami in two weeks.
Manso and Ferraro underestimated FIU, which upset UCF in Orlando on Thursday night.
The difference for Durda was Thursday night's border game between South Carolina and North Carolina. Durda picked the Tar Heels, who fell short in a 17-13 victory for the Gamecocks.
