College Football Quick Picks: Week 13
It's almost Thanksgiving, and that means excessive amounts of food and rivalry football.
This week is a football fan's dream as there are games Thursday on into next week if you include the NFL.
Rivalry's are one of the best parts of college sports. In college football in particular, rivalry games provide for all kinds of added excitement. I'll be watching a whole lot of the stuff this weekend, and I find a lot of cool games out there so I give to you the gift of many many picks.
No. 2 Alabama defeats Auburn
No. 3 Texas defeats Texas A&M (though I'm really pulling for the Aggies in this one)
West Virginia defeats No. 9 Pittsburgh
No. 18 Clemson defeats South Carolina
No. 7 Georgia Tech defeats Georgia
No. 19 BYU defeats No. 21 Utah
No. 20 USC defeats UCLA
This Week's Irrational Upset Special
Florida State defeats No. 1 Florida
This is based on the Bobby Bowden factor, so it may be a silly pick.
I personally think Bowden will get one final season, and he should, but there are still rumblings that the boosters want Bowden to step aside and let offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher start being the head ball coach (probably so someone else can start calling plays).
If this is indeed Bowden's final game against Florida, his team knows about it and will play out of their minds for him to get one more big win.
Of course, if he's coming back next year, the 'Noles sans Christian Ponder will probably just get steam-rolled by little Timmy Tebow on his senior day.
