Season Spreads: 21-25

Season Winners: 32-14

#16 Oregon State (+10) at #7 Oregon: Oregon will pull this out but won’t cover the spread.  It will come down to the wire in a sold out loud Ducks stadium. 

#21 Houston (-3) at East Carolina: Houston will win by more than three proving they are still the elite team in Conference USA.

#23 West Virginia (+2) at Rutgers: Rutgers will easily take care of WVU.  They play great at home and the proof is a 31-0 shlacking of USF just a few weeks ago. 

#1 Florida (-5) vs. #2 Alabama: The game’s finally here.  Winner goes to the BCS National Championship and I think UF’s defense will prove to be too much for Alabama even without their stupid defensive end Carolos Dunlap that was found drunk and asleep at the wheel this week.  The Florida Tebows win and cover the spread.

Other Games To Watch

#3 Texas (-15) vs. #22 Nebraska: Nebraska is so inconsistent that I could see Colt McCoy picking apart their defense in this Big 12 Championship game and cementing the Heisman Trophy.  Nebraska does play tough some weeks though and there’s a reason they’re ranked and in this game so I wouldn’t bet on this spread.

#10 Georgia Tech vs. Clemson: Who would have thought that Clemson would beat out Miami and Virginia Tech for the ACC Championship game?

New Mexico State (+48) at #6 Boise State: This spreads ridiculous but reasonable when a talented college team faces youth football players.

Florida Atlantic (+2) at Florida International: It’s the Shula Bowl… the yearly battle for the worst team in Florida.
