16-7 last week, 105-63 on the year:


Cal vs. USC. Picked last night
(21) Navy vs. USF. Hard to go against the Navy.
Duke vs. Georgia Tech. Woof!
(4) Michigan vs. Michigan State. Revenge from last years blocked kick six.
Penn State vs. Purdue. Another woof game! Penn State with an obvious let down on the road, and Purdue played Nebraska down to the wire last week on the road in the first game for the interim coach. He'll get win #1 here.
UCF vs. (23) Houston. How is Houston still in the top 25??
Kentucky vs. Missouri. One team (Missouri) lost at home to a good not great, but not terrible team in Middle Tennessee, and the other (Kentucky) needed a field goal at 0:00's to beat, if not for Missouri, the worst team in the SEC in Mississippi State. I'll take the team that won, but this is definitely a coin flip.
(8) West Virginia vs. Oklahoma State. I wouldn't be shocked if Oklahoma State won, and actually want to pick them, I just can't do it.
Boston College vs. NC State. Poor BC, hasn't won an ACC game in over 23 months (November 29, 2014), and with this game & Wake Forest being road tilts, they look headed for a second straight winless season in conference. Back to the American they should go!
Georgia vs. (10) Florida. Remember when this game actually used to mean something?? Now, I didn't even realize it was taking place this week.
Maryland vs. Indiana. A complete toss up.
Miami vs. Notre Dame. Notre Dame may miss a bowl game anyways, but if they lose here they are finishing no better than 5-7, as I can't see any way they beat BOTH Navy and USC on the road, and very well could lose to VT too.
Northwestern vs. (9) Ohio State. OSU will bounce back at home.
Cincinnati vs. Temple. Temple staying at home coming off the great win against USF. Make it another win for the Owls.
Texas Tech vs. TCU. Kliff Kingsbury cares more about his hair than getting wins, and I'd have to believe TCU is better than their 4-3 record says they are.
(2) Washington vs. (15) Utah. I'll bite and take the upset pick in Salt Lake. What's interesting to know is the 3 times College Gameday has come to SLC, the Utes have lost all 3 times. I don't see a 4th as the Utes make sure the Pac-12 is left OUT of the playoffs for the 2nd straight year.
Arizona State vs. Oregon. First to 70 wins?? First to force a punt wins??
(7) Nebraska vs. (14) Wisconsin. If this was in Lincoln, I'd probably pick the Huskers, but can't go against the Badgers in Madison.


I'll get the late games in later tonight or tomorrow afternoon.

Kentucky vs Missouri game is important for Kentucky. With a record of 4-3, and with Austin Peay still remaining on the schedule, a win tomorrow essentially means locking up bowl eligibility.

Auburn vs. Ole Miss. Ole Miss is a good team that's bad, Auburn is a team that I thought would be bad that's good.
(3) Clemson vs. (12) Florida State. Florida State is overrated, but Clemson has too much riding on this to lose it.
Stanford vs. Arizona. Pac-12 after dark!

Great game by the Cats! Final score 35-21 over Missouri, but it was 35-7 in the fourth quarter.

-582 yards of offense
-Not one, but two running backs had career high yardage
-One win from bowl eligibility
-First 3-game SEC win streak since 1999

And here's the crazy thing: If Georgia beats Florida today, Kentucky will be in first place in the SEC East.

Welp the Big 12 just assured they won't have a team in the playoff again now that Baylor and West Virginia have lost.

Ehh....it's possible they can still get one in.


If West Virginia wins out & Washington State wins out, if theirs 1 more spot left, West Virginia is getting the nod over a Wazzu team that lost to an FCS opponent, and a Washington team that didn't even win its own division.
