What an absolutely ugly finish to the season we have had. We finished with a 2-8 record last week where everything went sideways… But we are moving on for Championship Week. LETS GET TO THE PICKS:
Top Picks of the Week
#11 Utah vs. #4 USC Over 65.5 – 7:00pm
The last game finished Utah 43-42. Both quarterbacks threw for over 380 yards and moved the ball with ease. Expect the same thing with both offenses putting up plenty of points. We’re taking the over.
#10 Kansas State vs. #3 TCU Over 60.5 – 11:00am
Another game where I expect to see plenty of points. Kansas State was averaging 12.5 yards per play against TCU before their starting quarterbacks went down. But that TCU offense also put it on, scoring 21 second half points. We are taking the over.
Coastal Carolina +9 at Troy – 2:30pm
I know Coastal lost to James Madison 47-7. But Coastal Carolina was resting players preparing for this game right here. They keep it close against Troy in the Sun Belt Championsip.
#22 UCF at #18 Tulane -2.5 – 3:00pm
This is me trusting Willie Fritz. Tulane will play tough defense against UCF. I know UCF beat Tulane a few weeks ago, but UCF has struggled against two bad teams since then (South Florida and Navy). Give me Tulane and laying the points.
#9 Clemson vs. #23 North Carolina +8 – 7:00pm
I trust Drake Maye to be able to keep it close with Clemson. Especially since the weakness of Clemson is their secondary. This one will be a close one.
Purdue vs. #2 Michigan -16.5 – 7:00pm
Remember Michigan against Iowa in the Big Ten Championship last year? Expect the same this year with Michigan treating it as a playoff warm up and blowing out Purdue.
