    8 and 4 last week, tripped up by some of those overtime upsets.

    No. 25 Texas at Texas A&M Not sure who is worse here. A&M

    No. 3 Arkansas at No. 1 LSU The numbers favor LSU but this has a smell about it could be an upset. LSU

    Pittsburgh at West Virginia Pitt seems to have gotten real good at finding ways to lose games. WV

    No. 13 Georgia at No. 23 Georgia Tech Clean, Old Fashioned Hate I don't think home field matters with this one. UGA

    Ohio State at No. 15 Michigan I think Michigan's offense will be enough barely to get it done. Michigan

    No. 2 Alabama at No. 24 Auburn Iron Bowl yup enough said and probably the nastiest rivalry in college sports. Tide.

    No. 5 Virginia Tech at Virginia The numbers favor Va Tech and I will too. Va Tech

    Oregon State at No. 10 Oregon Civil War I agree not close. OU

    No. 19 Penn State at No. 16 Wisconsin I think home field may play into it here. Wisky

    Vanderbilt at Wake Forest When looking at Vandy's record remember what conference they play in. Vandy

    Missouri vs. Kansas Well it aint basketball so bad news for Kansas. Missouri

    Florida State at Florida Both of these are looking rough this year. Florida

    Ole Miss at Mississippi State This year might be the rotten egg bowl. MSU

    No. 17 Clemson at No. 12 South Carolina This may be one where Clemson beats a better team. I aint picking Clemson though too unreliable. USC

    UCLA at USC Sure aint what it used to be. SoCal and they could probably call it at halftime.

      11-4 this during rivalry weekend - pretty darn good.

      Very slim pickings in this week's interesting match ups:

      Ohio vs. Northern Illinois (MAC title game - gonna go with OU - Frank seems to have built what he couldn't in Nebraska) I pick OU

      UCLA at No. 9 Oregon (PAC 12 title game...is this really worth playing?) I pick Oregon

      No. 24 Southern Miss at No. 6 Houston (Conf. USA title game - BCS birth on the line for Houston who will win at home) I pick UH

      No. 22 Texas at No. 17 Baylor (Baylor...if RGIII plays) I pick Baylor

      No. 14 Georgia vs. No. 1 LSU (SEC championship game - I so want this to be a good game) I pick LSU

      No. 10 Oklahoma at No. 3 Oklahoma State (Big 12...10...8...6 championship game - Depending on if you want 'The Rematch' in the BCS title game will depend on who you root for) I pick OU - experience will play a factor

      No. 5 Virginia Tech vs. No. 20 Clemson (ACC championship game - gotta like the way VT is peaking at the right time) I pick VT

      No. 15 Wisconsin vs. No. 13 Michigan State (Big 10 championship game - NO hail mary this time around) I pick UW

      And of course this week's latest bowl projection...

      Enjoy your games and have a great weekend!

                I will get mine up next Thursday or Friday. I am very disappointed in the bowls this year. It seems things have taken a step backwards and we are back to the pretty helmets and travels well crap for deciding the teams.

                  I agree. There are WAY too many bowls and match ups that would drive potential viewers to watch C-SPAN over most games. Unfortunately it is all about money and the more bowls there are the more schools can get that all important payday at the end of the season to help fill budget gaps. Kinda takes the fun out of the game.

                  I'm sure you heard about UCLA (6-6 record before their championship game) and how before they went to play Oregon in the PAC-12 "championship" game they petitioned the NCAA for the right to play in a bowl game even though AFTER they lost to Oregon they would have a 6-7 record. The NCAA said...'Sure. Why not? Bowl games for everyone.'

                      In honor of the Army-Navy game tomorrow, I present this link that talks about some of (not all though) the best traditions in college football.

                      You will find several schools listed at the top of the screen with a short story (and video for some) of how the tradition came to be.

                      http://espn.go.com/ncf/feature/video...ditions/num/15

                      Even got one for Miami, Ibis!
