NFL AND COLLEGE THURSDAY NIGHT PICKS

NFL:

Minnesota (2 - 2) 24 @ Green Bay (2 - 2) 28:

Both teams got big victories last week to keep pace in the NFC North, which may be one of the tightest in the league. Terry Bridgewater is out for the Vikes, replace by Christian Ponder for tonight's game. Short week, different QB, coming off a big win...I don't feel good about Minnesota's chances. But this is the NFL, which could stand for "Not For Long" when it comes to trying to figure out how long things stay the same. Aaron Rodgers in Lambeau Field on a Thursday night against a division rival that has been up and down this season and without Adrian Peterson makes me lean toward the Pack.

College:

Arizona (4 - 0) 31 @ (2) Oregon (4 - 0) 45:

The Wildcats are undefeated heading to Eugene to take on the Ducks, but they've played a weak schedule and barely got past Cal in their last game. Oregon has too much for Arizona, but this will most likely be a very high scoring game. Arizona will need to rely on turnovers and a few big plays to stay in this one and maybe have a chance to pull the big upset at the end. I hope to stay up late enough to see some of the game, because it could be very entertaining. Then again, Oregon may put it away early and I'll get some much needed sleep.
