It all comes down to this, folks. The final hurrah of the regular season. Conference Championship Week is upon us. So, since there are only 7 conference championship lined up, we’ll have to wait another week to decide our final winner, as the winner of last weeks effort, yours truly, decided to make the Army-Navy game the tie breaker. So here are the 7 big games, and a couple of games from the FCS (the Division 1-AA), for you to pick. Get those guesses in by Friday night, December 1, @8:00EST, when the PAC-12 decides its champion.
1. PAC-12: Stanford vs USC
2. American Athletic: Memphis vs Central Florida
3. Big 12: TCU vs Oklahoma
4. SEC: Georgia vs Auburn
5. Mountain West: Fresno State Vs Boise State
6. ACC: Miami vs Clemson
7. B1G Ten: Ohio State vs Wisconsin
8. SWAC: Alcorn State vs Grambling
9. FCS 2nd round: Northern Iowa vs South Dakota State
10. Tie breaker (December 9)- guess winner and final score: Army vs Navy
This looks to be the most challenging week of all, since most of the teams are in the Top 10, and all the games mean something. Some of the winners will be in the national Championship Series. Stay tuned!
It’s time for Week 13 of Pigskin Picks. So, along with the leftover turkey, have some football. Pick early, folks. The first game is Friday afternoon when Mizzou takes on Arkansas. This is Rivalry Week, and I find it interesting that these two schools in states that border each other haven’t had a rivalry until Mizzou joined the SEC a few years back.
So here are your 10 picks. If you believe in luck, pick away. And even if you don’t, it’s all for fun anyway.
Remember, choose by Friday, November 24, 2017 @ 2:30 EST.
1. Mizzou @ Arkansas
2. South Florida @ Central Florida
3. Iowa @ Nebraska
4. Virginia Tech @ Virginia
5. Georgia @ Georgia Tech
6. Purdue @ Indiana
7. Florida State @ Florida
8. Alabama @ Auburn (the Iron Bowl)
9. Arizona @ Arizona State
10. Tie Breaker: Texas Tech @ Texas. Pick the winner and the final score.
PS- Since this is being sent before the new rankings come out, you’ll have to guess which teams are in the Top 25.
It’s the dozenth week in college football. There are dozens of teams playing, and a few are on their dozenth game. For some reason (think $), a few top ranked teams are playing teams from a lower division this week, getting a break from the tough competition (Alabama vs. Mercer, for instance). So, in honor of that, I’ve thrown in a game from the FCS, which are the mid-major universities that actually have a playoff to determine a national champion. Both those teams are doing well this season.
So, make your picks by the dozenth hour after midnight, Eastern Time, Saturday (that’s 12 NOON).
1. Georgia Tech @ Duke
2. Syracuse @ Louisville
3. Northern Arizona (7-3) @ Southern Utah (8-2)
4. Nebraska @ Penn State
5. Texas A&M @ Ole Miss
6. UCLA @ USC
7. Arizona @ Oregon
8. Air Force @ Boise State
9. Pillow Fight: UMass @ BYU (both teams are at 3-8)
10. Tie breaker (pick winner and score): Texas @ West Virginia
