Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks 2018 Week 12

It’s Week 12. And since AJ picked a small college rivalry game, I have decided that this is Small College Week. Two reason: Why not? And we need a break from the usual, don’t we? Well, there are a few “big” schools in the list for those who need that fix.

Next week has a lot of rivalries for the big schools, so we’ll do those then. But this week, enjoy the challenge, even though I did a little research to see which teams have the better records.

Get the guesses in by NOON EST Saturday. (This time I double checked to make sure no games are on Friday.)

 1. Colgate (9-0) @ Army (8-1)

 2. Ivy League: Yale @ Harvard (Both 5-4, 3-3 conf)

 3. Pioneer League: San Diego (8-2, 7-0 conf) @ Marist (5-5, 5-2 conf) [My oldest brother attended USD for two years.]

 4. Southwestern Athletic: Alabama State  @ Prairie View (Both 3-6, 2-3 conf)

 5. Big Sky: Weber State (8-2, 6-1 conf) @ Idaho State (6-4, 5-2 conf)

 6. Missouri Valley: Indiana State (6-4, 4-3 conf) @ Western Illinois (5-5, 4-3 conf) [I live 90 miles from WIU.]

 7. Missouri Valley: Missouri State (4-6, 2-5 conf) @ Northern Iowa (5-5, 4-3 conf) [I got my MA at UNI.]

 8. North Dakota (6-4) @ Northern Arizona (3-6) [I almost went to NAU for grad school.]

 9. Pillow Fight: Conference USA: UTEP (1-9, 1-5 conf) @ Western Kentucky (1-9, 0-6 conf)

10. Tie Breaker: Pick winner and final score:  Patriot League: Lehigh (2-8, 1-4 conf) @ Lafayette (3-7, 2-3 conf)

Note – This is called “The Rivalry”.

    Prairie View
    Idaho State
    Western Illinois
    Northern Iowa
    North Dakota
    Lafayette 30-21


  3. Mumsee- Some of the teams are “big” schools this time, but most are in the D1-AA level. And Marist is in Poughkeepsie, NY. So the California team has to play in the snow tomorrow.

    Now for the winning entry:
    Colgate – clean teeth and all.
    Harvard – my BA is from a school that calls itself “The Harvard of the Midwest”.
    San Diego – Beautiful campus
    Prairie View
    Weber State
    Western IL – The Leathernecks, what a mascot.
    UNI Panthers!
    No. Arizona – They have a Lumberjack statue at the entrance.
    W Kentucky
    Lehigh 14-10


  4. With definitive assurance, the outcomes will be:
    San Diego
    Prairie View
    Indiana State
    N. Iowa
    N. Dakota
    UTEP, and
    Lafayette (31-15)


  5. Army
    San Diego (Though I lived in Los Angeles I took the SAT at USD – long story…)
    Prairie View
    Weber State
    Western Illinois
    Northern Iowa
    North Dakota
    Western Kentucky
    Lafayette 31-21 (once again I set aside family loyalty – my dad went to Lehigh)


  6. This was a good week for selecting “seldom seen” schools. The other schools are playing softies to get ready for the big boys next week (e.g. SC plays Chattanooga this week, Clemson next.)
    Also, Florida is playing Idaho. But Citadel had ‘Bama tied 10/10 at halftime. It’s 24/10-Bama now.

  7. Funny you say that, mumsee, since he did much better than you. He and I are tied with 7 right now. You have 5. The Pillow Fight will decide the winner, and right now WKU is up 40-0 at the half. If that holds then I win.


  8. Oh, but mumsee, some people think it is. After all, I don’t hand out participation awards.

    And this week I am the winner since no one else picked Lehigh. You can verify the actual scores yourself here:

    I had 8.
    Kevin and Mike had 7.
    Chas and Mumsee 5.
    AJ 4.

    The next Picks will come early since it is Rivalry Week and one of the games is Thursday night.
