PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – It's back to a two-way tie for first place in the Local10.com college football picks.

Meteorologist Julie Durda was 7-3 this weekend, falling one game behind Clay and Amy. In addition to missing out on Temple and Penn State, she also picked Connecticut to beat Central Florida. The Huskies fell to the Knights 24-16.
