It turned out to be a fairly average weekend of predicting games. I finished 2-2 on the college level, making me 23-18 on the year. In the NFL, I went 9-7, pushing my record to 87-62.
I’m hoping this week’s games give us all a bit more to be thankful about:
No. 11 USC at No. 6 Arizona State (Thursday)
I’m not sure I’ll watch a second of this game. Let’s pick USC, just because I think Arizona State is overrated.
No. 19 Boise State at No. 15 Hawaii
In the Battle of Who Could Care Less, I’m going with Hawaii.
No. 20 Connecticut at No. 3 West Virginia
West Virginia is still fighting for a berth in the BCS Championship. This game keeps those hopes alive.
No. 8 Virginia Tech at No. 16 Virginia
I know nothing about Virginia’s team. I hate Virginia Tech on principle. I guess that means I pick Virginia.
No. 18 Tennessee at Kentucky
Let’s face it: right now, UK sucks. Tennessee is the most hit-or-miss team of the year. Unfortunately, I think they hit this weekend. Vols win.
No. 4 Missouri at No. 2 Kansas
If you really believe these two teams are among the four best in the country, raise your hand. No one? I thought so. Kansas wins (and let’s hope they lose in the Big 12 title game).
Green Bay at Detroit
New York Jets at Dallas
Indianapolis at Atlanta
Seattle at St. Louis
Minnesota at New York Giants
Buffalo at Jacksonville
New Orleans at Carolina
Washington at Tampa Bay
