There apparently is still college football so I guess I will make some picks. 4-2 week and I hit my upset special. The real special thing was seeing USC get that 5th loss. Other than Evil Bill, I would like to know who thought PSU would finish with a better record.
It’s been fun picking and not sure what the VBR Staff has planned for the Bowl Season, but I will probably partake in that.
Louisville (+2) at Rutgers (Big East Championship*)
*The de facto Big East title game to naturally be played on a Thursday. ACC vs. B1G in this one and I think that Louisville is just way better a team.
Louisville 34 Rutgers 27
Northern Illinois (-6.5) vs. Kent State (#MACtion Championhip Game)
A Kent State win combined with a UCLA loss could mean Kent in the BCS automatically. That makes this pick and easy one.
Kent State 30 Northern Illinois 29
UCLA (+10) vs. Stanford (Pac 12 Championship Game)
I’ll hand it to Stanford, they win games. I’m still bitter over that play calling in the Notre Dame game, but I need them combined with that Kent game.
Stanford 28 UCLA 16
Florida State (-13) vs. Georgia Tech (ACC Championship Game)
Florida State is having a distraction of a week so they will come out flat. Doesn’t matter, the game sucks bad,
Florida State 30 Georgia Tech 21
Nebraska (-2.5) vs. Wisconsin (B1G Championship Game)
Speaking of games that suck, this one is way up there. A 3rd place team in Wisconsin vs. a spaz in Pelini. Wisconsin could pose some issues, but Martinez will pull one out.
Nebraska 26 Wisconsin 24
Georgia (+7.5) vs Alabama (SEC Championship Game)
Screw the SEC. I have no justification for this pick, but I just think that everyone is so hard up for Alabama Notre Dame, I just want to see the disappointment.
Georgia 23 Alabama 21
Season Record 49-28 (7-6 on Upset Specials)
