Good morning, everyone.

Here are Week 14's selections and picks.

Bowling Green vs. Northern Illinois
Temple vs. Houston
Texas vs. Baylor
Southern Miss vs. Western Kentucky
Florida vs. Alabama
West Virginia vs. Kansas State
Air Force vs. San Diego State
USC vs. Stanford
Michigan State vs. Iowa
North Carolina vs. Clemson

Here are my picks.
Bowling Green vs. Northern Illinois (Bowling Green has looked really well this year.)
Temple vs. Houston (Houston is a really good team.)
Texas vs. Baylor (This game has the potential to be the worst ass-beating we take this year.)
Southern Miss vs. Western Kentucky (Western Kentucky's offense is too awesome for Southern Miss to handle.)
Florida vs. Alabama (With how bad Florida's offense has been, Alabama's liable to shut them out.)
West Virginia vs. Kansas State (I don't think either Kansas team will get a bowl this year.)
Air Force vs. San Diego State (Underrated matchup. And i'll take San Diego State in this one.)
USC vs. Stanford (It's hard to beat the same team twice in one season.)
Michigan State vs. Iowa (I have a lot of faith in the Hawkeyes this year. But it's not enough for me to pick them over Michigan State.)
North Carolina vs. Clemson (My upset pick of the week.)

I agree with this as well, the Big 10 seems to have the stronger conference this year.

Big Ten staking claim as best conference

I haven't seen the NIU/Bowling Green score yet, so I'll still pick it:


Bowling Green vs. Northern Illinois. With Toledo out of the way, I'll take the Huskies, even though the Falcons are favored.
Temple vs. Houston. Houston with Ward should make enough plays to get the win.
Texas vs. Baylor. There will be 5-7 teams going bowling this year....will the Horns care about being one of those 5-7 teams possibly being selected?? Baylor still has a shot at a BCS bowl since OK will be in the playoffs.
Southern Miss vs. Western Kentucky. The Toppers!
Florida vs. Alabama. I think this maybe close for a half, but Alabama wins by 20+ in the end. Have you seen Florida in November??
West Virginia vs. Kansas State. Will be odd to see K-state not in a bowl game.
Air Force vs. San Diego State. Tough to prepare for the Air Force ground attack.
USC vs. Stanford. Already played and beat them in LA, early in the season when USC was better and Stanford was worse, now Stanford has the defacto home game in Santa Clara right down the road from Palo Alto.
Michigan State vs. Iowa. Iowa's a good story, but really their schedule was complete $#!t this year, so I'll take Sparty who went through the ringer this year in the East with Michigan, Ohio State and the game with Oregon. Iowa's best win is who?? Wisconsin?? Northwestern??
North Carolina vs. Clemson. My "upset" of the week, and really this shouldn't be much of an upset either. I've been saying for the past 3 weeks that UNC would win this game, so why would I stop now?? If this happens the biggest question is who will be #4?? You know the Sparty/Iowa winner, Oklahoma, and Alabama will be 3 teams, but will Clemson be able to hold off Ohio State for that last spot??

I honestly think TCU has broken Baylor. We're up 17-0 over Baylor right now.

Southern Miss and Houston are looking good, last time i checked.

Texas has been a total mystery to me this year!

Texas is the biggest Jekyll & Hyde team you must be frustrated SouthernTiger. Sure, it wasn't going to be a "good" 8-4 or 9-3 season, but you have to think you beat Oklahoma and on their way to beating Baylor (up 20-0 at halftime) you think they should get 4 other wins fairly easily: Iowa State & Kansas both suck, West Virginia & Texas Tech can't play defense, Kansas State was the definition of mediocre figured you go 3-2 at worst and there's 5 wins. Then you just have to win 1 of: Rice, Cal (@ home), Oklahoma State (at home) to get the requisite 6 wins. As is, they should have beaten Oklahoma State anyways, and could have beaten Cal (at least would have sent that game to overtime), and when you look at it, this could've been a 7-5, 8-4 team this year
