What an absolute garbage weekend for college football. The #1 and #2 teams are ducking competition and there is no showcase games whatsoever. This might be a good Saturday to run errands. Hell even the normally interesting Michigan vs. Ohio State game is completely irrelevant. The Buckeyes are already in the Rose Bowl and Michigan is turrible.
5. Louisiana State Tigers at Ole Miss Rebels
This game could have meant something big had both teams not been dumped by Alabama. Now it's just a battle between two teams that are good. It should be entertaining but it doesn't have much meaning. The Pick: LSU by 3
4. Virginia Cavaliers at Clemson Tigers
Clemson wins and they are in the ACC title game. They lose and BC likely gets to go to the ACC title game and lose for the 37th time in a row. Good thing Clemson is facing Al Groh.The Pick: Tigers by 16
3. Kansas Jayhawks at Texas Longhorns
Mark Mangino just might be getting fired soon thanks to his former players saying he was an abusive hitter. I bet if he pulls off a stunning upset and knocks the Longhorns out of title contention, he will have a better chance of keeping his job. The Pick: Texas by 17
2. California Bears at Stanford Cardinal
The Cardinal have come out of nowhere the past two weeks and are now just a win, an Oregon loss and an Arizona loss away from the Rose Bowl. Step 1 of the process is beating Cal - Jahvid Best. The Pick: Cardinal by 9.
1. Oregon Ducks at Arizona Wildcats
This is the biggest matchup of the weekend because the Ducks win and they are a Civil War away from the Rose Bowl. Arizona wins and they need to jump on the beat USC bandwagon and then they will be in the Rose Bowl. The Pick: Oregon by 10
