The Big 5 College Football Games of Weekend #15

Friday, December 05, 2008

It's Championship Week and Trips to BCS games are on the line everywhere.

5. MAC Championship: Ball State Cardinals vs. Buffalo Bulls
Ya this is a reach. Do you really care about Ball State? No I didn't think so. I actually hope they lose because they ducked playing Boise in a bowl game. The Pick: Cardinals by 6

4. Southern California Trojans vs. California Los Angeles Bears
Red vs. Powder Blue. Two years ago the Trojans faced off against UCLA in the Rose Bowl with a chance to play in the Championship game and they ended up giving Karl Dorrell one more year. This year there will be no slip up, the Bruins will not see the end zone. The Pick: Trojans by 30

3. ACC Championship: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Boston College Eagles
For a trip to the Orange bowl the Hokies and Eagles rematch in what might be dubbed "The No One in Attendance Bowl". The Eagles are without their starting quarterback and for the most part the Hokies have gotten horrible QB play. Might be a boring game. Either way the winner gets the Oranges while the loser probably gets a trip to Detroit (ugh) or the DiamondHazulnut bowl. The Pick: Hokies by 3

2. Big 12 Championship: Oklahoma Sooners vs. Missouri Tigers
Wouldn't it be nice if Texas and Oklahoma were just playing again? The game would certainly be more showcased and Texas Tech would both be getting screwed as the lame 3rd wheel as well as potentially getting the benefit of getting the 2nd BCS bid. But alas we get underachieving Mizzou. This game is going to be score after score after score. Defense is entirely optional. The Pick: Sooners by 14

1. SEC Championship: Florida Gators vs. Alabama Crimson Tide
Hey look it's the National Semifinal (I guess). Will the Crimson Tide return to the Bear Bryant like past (much like Saban's hair color returned to that of his childhood) or will Tebow garner another trophy to add to his incredibly large mantlepiece. The Tide will need to keep the score much lower than where the Gators consistantly wind up. Percy Harvin's availability could be the difference between a Gator blowout and a Bama victory. The Pick: Gators by 13
