Rivals matchup this week in the Big XII, Big Ten, Big East, SEC, and Mountain West. In honor of these rivalries and your extra helping of turkey we are doing an extra helping of picks. But first, let me tell you where we’re at. Jimmy only went 7-3 last week, but that didn’t keep him from first place with his total record at 64-36. Karl also got 7 right last week but is has only predicted 59% to date. Spencer did not do so hot last week, only predicting 4 of 10. He is also in last place with a record of 58-42. I got 6 right, but at least I called the Oregon St game. Told you not to bet on USC, but everyone else made the same mistake this week. Overall I’m second at 62-38.
I love rivalry games. It’s when teams pull out all the stops and anything can happen (I still get goosebumps). There’ll be a lot of good football this week with a lot on the line. Both my teams, BYU and Michigan, are involved in two of the best college football rivalries and I went with both of them. There’s no way I’m picking their rivals against them (shame on you, Karl). If you don’t understand, click here. Plus, if Ohio St loses then Sparty should make it to the Rose Bowl. Even though Michigan State is overrated this year, but I would never put my money on Penn St. But I still think Jimmy could be on to something with that pick.
The Iron Bowl is up for grabs. I think LSU’s luck is about to run out. The Tigers are good, but they’re even luckier and Arkansas is an all around solid team. (If Michigan had hired Les Miles in stead of Rodriguez, Mallet probably wouldn’t have transferred and th two would be playing together in maze and Blue.) Perenial hotshots Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, and USC have the cards stacked against them this week. But like I said, anything can happen.
