Week 1 Series

The series of the week by far is Vanderbilt-Stanford down on the farm. The Commodores come in ranked 12th in the nation fresh off a 54-12 2011 campaign. Their counterparts, however, come in ranked 2nd despite just a 35-22 record last season.

One of the more interesting series of the weekend will take place in Malibu, California. That's where the Oklahoma Sooners look to escape the cold Norman winter by heading west to face Pepperdine. Oklahoma finished 2011 at 41-19, and while Pepperdine only went 22-34, a strong recruiting class should make Pepperdine a much more competitive ball club this season.

Cal State Fullerton heads east to take on Florida in one of the marquee series of the week. While the Titans are very talented, they are also raw and I don't expect anything special from then when visiting the top-ranked Gators on opening weekend.

Mississippi visits TCU in a battle of Top 35 teams. The gap between #35 and #18 is pretty big, and with the 18th team playing at home, I expect the Horned Frogs to easily take this series.

Like Oklahoma-Pepperdine, the Maryland-UCLA series is an interesting one. The Bruins are a young (but talented) team that I think overlooks the Terps for at least one game.

The reminders:
  • Vote for the team you expect to win and whether the results will be 3-0 or 2-1.
  • Pick teams in the exact order posted. This makes it easier for me to tabulate.
  • You can change your picks up until first pitch of the first game. Games will only take place Friday-Sunday.
  • Make sure to come back next Monday for the updated standings and Week 2 Picks.
  • There are no prizes. We play for bragging rights.
  • Points are awarded in the following manner:

Pick . . Result . . Pts.
3-0 . . . 3-0 . . . . 6
. . . . . . 2-1 . . . . 3
. . . . . . 1-2 . . . . 1
. . . . . . 0-3 . . . . 0

2-1 . . . 3-0 . . . . 3
. . . . . . 2-1 . . . . 4
. . . . . . 1-2 . . . . 2
. . . . . . 0-3 . . . . 1

This week's games

  • #12 Vanderbilt at #2 Stanford
  • #24 Oklahoma at #95 Pepperdine
  • #20 Cal State Fullerton at #1 Florida
  • #35 Mississippi at #18 TCU
  • Maryland at #19 UCLA
Once again, special thanks to Dodger Matt for the idea. Good Luck!
