Here we go! Coming into the final couple weeks of the college football season, it is finally put up or shut up time for some Top 10 teams. It will all come down to games that either catapult a team into the conference championship game (WVU-Oklahoma) or games that just will have implications to the College Football Playoff (Alabama-Auburn and USC-Notre Dame). Every game will have a major impact on how the CFP Rankings shake out. There are a lot of games on both Friday and Saturday this week, so enjoy the last full weekend of college football!
Time to end this season on a winning note. Take these winners to increase your bankroll for the Holidays!
Washington +2.5 vs. Washington State – The Huskies underperformed this year. Wazzu overachieved. The Apple Cup should be a very close game. Peterson is 4-0 coaching in this game. The streak continues
Washington 27 Washington State 24
Oklahoma -2.5 vs. West Virginia – This game will be a track meet. Winner will go the the Big12 Championship game. Two Heisman candidates will put up big numbers. I think the Sooners score last.
Oklahoma 45 West Virginia 42
Ohio State +4.5 vs. Michigan – This is the big one. Michigan is on a roll. There has been no good press on OSU, yet both teams stand at 10-1. This is a huge game for Harbaugh. He will pull out a much needed win but it won’t be easy.
Michigan 28 Ohio State 27
Clemson -25.5 vs. South Carolina – The Tigers are playing the best football out of any team in the country right now. This includes Bama. The train keeps rolling and the Gamecocks get crushed.
Clemson 45 South Carolina 17
Miami Florida -4.5 vs. Pitt – Everyone is talking up Pitt and the job they have done this year. If I know anything about the Pitt program, they will rip the rug out from themselves on any momentum they generate.
Miami Florida 27 Pitt 21
Boston College -7 vs. Syracuse – Cuse has had an amazing season. After last week’s drubbing at the hands of Notre Dame, I feel like the train is running out of steam. I like AJ Dillon to have a huge game.
Boston College 35 Syracuse 27
Georgia -17 vs. Georgia Tech – UGA needs some momentum heading into the big one against Bama. I think the steamroll Tech. Big game for Fromm.
Georgia 42 Georgia Tech 21
Florida Atlantic -17.5 vs. Charlotte – Charlotte’s coach got fired this week. I don’t see the team preparing for a Lane Kiffin team that sorely needs an end-of-year morale boost heading into next year.
Florida Atlantic 42 Charlotte 17
Texas A&M -3 vs. LSU – I think these are two teams going in different directions. This is a good matchup for A&M. This is a much more important game for A&M than it is for the Tigers. Home team wins and covers.
Texas A&M 27 LSU 23
