Bulldog Dave’s Conference Championship Picks

I can’t believe the season is about to be over. It flew by but there is still one week to go before bowl season.  Many of the Playoff spots are still up for grabs and this week’s games will be the deciding factor. Let’s look at who we like to win and cover!

Ohio State -6.5 vs. Wisconsin
The time has finally come for Wisconsin to be exposed for the frauds that they are.  They are finally facing a team they can’t just pound the run on and it will be noticeable in this matchup.  Even if JT can’t go the athletes on Ohio State should be enough here to carry the day as Ohio State wins by over a TD.

USC -4 vs. Stanford
Stanford has looked better since starting Costello at QB but with a banged up Love and playing on a short week I like the Trojans. USC has had extra rest and time to prepare for this game and I just don’t think Stanford has the offense in this one to win it.  Shaw’s conservative play calling bites him in the butt here as USC wins and covers.

TCU +7 vs. Oklahoma
Oklahoma beat TCU last time out but I have a feeling this week Garry Patterson has a few tricks up his sleeve.  TCU has the edge on defense and I think in a game like this having anything resembling a defense will go a long way.  I think TCU has just enough to keep it close and stay within the number so I’ll roll with the Horned Frogs here.

Miami +9.5 vs. Clemson
Last week Miami couldn’t have looked worse losing to a terrible Pitt team putting their playoff chances in serious doubt. On the flip slide you saw Clemson destroy a South Carolina team on the road.  I think both of those effects have inflated the line here which I have closer to 7.  Don’t be surprised to see the turnover chain busted out a few times during this game as I like the Hurricanes to stay within the number and cover.
