This week’s picks, the final picks of the regular season, are as follows:
STANFORD over UCLA … for the second time in six days, the Bruins fall to the Cardinal. What a way to get ready for a bowl game.
ALABAMA over GEORGIA … men playing with Bulldogs.
OREGON STATE over NICHOLLS STATE … a makeup of a hurricane-delayed game from early September. The Beavers reverse a 3-9 season to finish 9-3 and go bowling, with high hopes for next year.
NEBRASKA over WISCONSIN … like Stanford and UCLA, these two have already played this season. The Huskers are rolling. The Badgers are reeling.
KANSAS STATE over TEXAS … folks in the Little Apple are still lamenting the national title game that got away.
WEST VIRGINIA over KANSAS … two programs going in opposite directions.
FLORIDA STATE over GEORGIA TECH … a consolation prize for the Seminoles after last week’s stunning loss to Florida.
BOISE STATE over NEVADA … Chris Petersen remains the hottest coaching rumor in the nation, but when all is said and done, he always stays at Boise.
UPSET OF THE WEEK: There will be no upsets this week. (Upset season record: 5-8).
ROUT OF THE WEEK: There will be no routs this week. (Rout season record: 13-0).
DON’T BET ON IT, BUT: It’s against the law to bet on college football in California. (Don’t bet season record: 12-1).
FIVE EASY PICKS: There are no easy picks in the final week of the season. (FEP season record: 60-0).
OTHER GAMES: Northern Illinois over Kent State, Oklahoma over TCU, and Oklahoma State over Baylor.
Last week: 24-8, season: 410-96, percentage: .810.
