Predicting Chaos in Week 14: Rivalry Week


Happy Thanksgiving from the Fan! I hope you are all enjoying some quality time with your loved one's and the people that matter most in your life. My first prediction and "lock of the week" is that most of you along with myself will have some turkey, football, and a nap before the days over. As far as on the field predictions after this weekend chaos ensues in the playoff rankings.

Week 14 Predictions

Favorites:

Colorado St d Air Force - Rams remain in running for New Years Six Bowl
Iowa d Nebraska - Would switch the pick if it were in Lincoln
Cal d BYU - Paying in tough Pac-12 will pay off for Bears
USC d Notre Dame - "Seven Win Sark" proves critics wrong...kind of...
Ohio State d Michigan - Shouldn't be close but Michigan's defense will keep it close...for a while...
Wisky d Minn - Gophers run defense gives up 4.42 YPR Wisky averages 7.39 per rush...
Boise St d Utah St - Broncos at home...that is the difference
Alabama d Auburn - Tide will Roll against soft Auburn Defense
Oregon d OSU - Inspired Beavers over matched as Ducks prepare for Pac-12 Championship
Clemson d South Carolina - Clemson in overtime and home field is the difference

Underdogs:

WSU d Washington - Just a gut feeling on this rivalry but Air Raid gets it done
Texas d TCU - TCU would have won earlier in the season but Texas hitting its stride
Texas A&M d LSU - Woeful LSU Defense and a really good Kyle Allen give Aggies "W"
Stanford d UCLA - Stanford too much in the trenches for distracted UCLA
Colorado d Utah - Buffs finally get a conference win over dejected Utes
Ga Tech d UGA - Yellow Jackets out muscle overrated Bulldogs
Kentucky d Louisville - Just like basketball but much more of a surprise
Penn St d Michigan State - Shocker in the B1G but Penn St defense makes difference
Ole Miss d Miss State - Bulldogs lay egg shakeup begins
Florida d FSU - Note comes due on Noles borrowed time as Muschamp goes out in style

NO LINE:
Missouri d Arkansas - Mizzou continues to help Hoosiers case as SEC East Champion
Arizona d ASU - Cats off of big win show they are the class of the PAC-12 South

By far the most upsets I've called for in a weekend but also the most unpredictable weekend of the year. No matter what happens on the field I'm thankful for family, friends, football, and turkey hangovers!
