PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Who will break the three-way tie for first place in the Local10.com college football picks?

Local 10 News sports reporter Clay Ferraro, meteorologist Julie Durda and investigative reporter Amy Viteri are all knotted up with a 58-18 overall record. Sports director Will Manso trails the group with a 54-22 overall record.

Clay is finally picking his alma mater to hand Miami its third loss in a row after a 4-0 start. The rest of the group appears to have soured on the Hurricanes as well, except for Will. He's standing behind his alma mater again.

Julie was able to tie for the lead last weekend by picking Temple over Central Florida. She's hoping for another UCF loss, picking Connecticut to beat the Knights.

Despite carrying a three-game winning streak into its homecoming game Saturday, Florida International is still being overlooked by the group. Louisiana Tech is a unanimous pick to beat the Panthers.

Three Florida teams -- Florida, Florida State and Florida Atlantic -- have the weekend off.
