Mt. West – Hawai’i @ #19 Boise State
ACC – #23 Virginia vs #3 Clemson
Big Ten – Tie Breaker: guess the winner and the final score – #1 Ohio State vs #8 Wisconsin
It’s RIVALRY WEEK. All these games are big rivalries, some new, most are old. Some date back 100+ years. My team, Arizona, plays in the 93rd Territorial Cup game, proclaimed by the NCAA in 2001 as “the oldest trophy for a rivalry game in America”, dating back to 1899!
It’s week 13. Almost the last week of college football. Almost your last chance to win. Janice won last week, but never posted her choice. So I figured she’s from Georgia, and picked Georgia Southern last time she won, so we’ll have it this time as well.
Have at it! Pick before NOON EST Saturday. And don’t be superstitious about the number this week.
1. #9 Penn State @ #2 Ohio State
2. #22 Oklahoma State @ West Virginia
3. Kansas @ Iowa State
4. #19 Texas @ #13 Baylor
5. SMU @ #23 Navy
6. Nebraska @ Maryland
7. UCLA @ USC
8. California @ Stanford
9. Pillow Fight: UTEP @ New Mexico State (both 1-9)
10. Tie Breaker –pick winner and final score: Georgia Southern @ Arkansas State
Twelve. One dozen. Ten plus two. Twelve months in the year. Twelve tribes of Israel. Twelve apostles.
One of my favorite numbers is twelve. So this must be my favorite week of college football, no? Actually, week 14 is. That’s when most of the rivalry games are. So here are your ten choices for week 12. I (Peter) won last week and was going to choose the Arizona game as the tie breaker, but since the Wildcats are on the road against a Top 10 team, and are likely to be blown out, I decided to go with a game closer to where I live, and one that has importance for the two teams.
Make you picks by Saturday, NOON EST.
1. Michigan State @ #14 Michigan
2. Syracuse @ Duke
3. VMI @ Army
4. TCU @ Texas Tech
5. #21 Navy @ # 16 Notre Dame
6. #5 Georgia @ #13 Auburn
7. South Carolina @ Texas A&M
8. #10 Oklahoma @ # 12 Baylor
9. Stanford @ Washington State
10. Tie Breaker: pick the winner and the final score: #7 Minnesota @ #23 Iowa
Okay, sports fans. It’s coming down to the wire. Only a few weeks left until the end of the 2019 College Football season. On the field it’s been wild. But here it’s been fairly even. Everyone has won at least once. Last week there turned out to be a tie, after Kevin found an error in my figuring. I had one score correct, but highlighted the losing team on my spreadsheet. My bad. So, even though both Janice and I had the same number of wins, as well as the same tie breaker score, I gave it to her. So she picked this week’s tie breaker game, and I added a game from the FCS (that’s the smaller big schools that actually have a playoff system set up.) UNI is my alma mater for my MA.
So here are your choices, including two games that have National Championship contenders going head-to-head. Select your teams by Saturday @NOON, EST. (I like that ‘S’, don’t you?)
#5 Penn State @ #13 Minnesota
Texas Tech @ West Virginia
Florida State @ Boston College
#1 LSU @ #2 Alabama
#18 Iowa @ #16 Wisconsin
USC @ Arizona State
Tennessee @ Kentucky
Wyoming @ #21 Boise State
Indiana State @ Northern Iowa
Tie Breaker – guess winner and final score: Georgia Tech @ Virginia

4. Army @ Air Force
5. Miami @ Florida State

Another weekend of college football approaches. Who cares that the World Series is on, NCAA football is more exciting. And we have some exciting matchups here at PPPPP. Janice won last week, so she picked a local team (for her) in the tie breaker, against a team that doesn’t win very often. In fact they are 0-7. But don’t let that influence your guess. Just enter the contest before NOON EDT Saturday.
