I went 3-2 last week because Colorado State downed the ball at the Fresno State 15 yard line and Virginia Tech won by 3 (spread was -3.5). These things happen. I still had a winning record. So now we have for the most part Conference Championship Week! Here are my picks. Enjoy you crazy bastards.
Northern Illinois +12 vs Bowling Green
This is a primetime Friday night MAC Championship football! We’ve waited all year for this right? Or maybe its just me who’d prefer to not go out on a Friday night and would rather sit at home and get shit hammered while the Huskies cover the spread against the Bowling Green Falcons. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Huskies win straight up.
West Virginia -6.5 vs Kansas State
Dana Holgorson may look like a used car salesman but hey he finally got the Mountaineers to come around this year. Bill Snyder is on cusp of a losing season and a permanent stop at an old folks home could be around the corner. I like the Mountaineers in this one but K-State still goes bowling with a losing record look for them in the Rootie Tootie Fresh N Frutie IHOP bowl or some shit.
Michigan State -3.5 vs Iowa (Big 10 Championship)
I want Iowa to win this game but I’m just being realistic, the Spartans are almost better at every single position minus kicker. Plus, Iowa starts far too many white guys to place a bet on them. Take the Spartans and buy your girl a poney for x-mas.
USC +4.5 vs Stanford (Pac 12 Championship)
I know the game is played close to Palo Alto but who gives a shit. Stanford may have a few oil rigs in Alaska named after some of their bullshit alumni but I got the Trojans upsetting the cardinals in a revenge game. Take the points and wear a trojan rubber while you enjoy the winnings on that top shelf prostitute you always wanted.
UNC +5 vs Clemson (ACC Championship)
Look, I honestly don’t feel as good about this one as the others but hey fuck it. Clemson is known for blowing it (their the Kansas City Chiefs of College Football) and at what better time to blow it then a week before the Playoffs. I’m going with the Tarheels plus the points. Ride or Die fuckers
