College Football Championship Week Picks

#17 Oklahoma (9-2) @ #6 Oklahoma State (10-1) 12:00 ABC
This might be the least talked about Bedlam in the history this rivalry. With a win, Oklahoma State will
clinch a BCS birth for the 2nd time in the last three years. Cowboys QB Clint Chelf has hit pay dirt 16 times since their lone loss against West Virginia and has helped guide OK State to 7 straight victories. I like them to hold off the Sooners in a tight 42-35 game.

#25 Texas (8-3) @ #9 Baylor (10-1) 3:30 FOX
Texas is 7-1 in the Big 12. The Bears have kept their conference title hopes alive after a dramatic three point against TCU last week. If the Cowboys lose and the Bears get a W, they will be representing the Big 12 in a BCS bowl. Lache Seastrunk returned to the backfield last week for the Bears and you have to believe BU gets the win, I like them by 17 at home 37-20.

PAC-12 Championship Game: #7 Stanford (10-2) @ #11 Arizona State (10-2) 7:45 ESPN
Sun Devils running back Marion Grice is out against the Cardinal so junior QB Taylor Kelly will have to drive this offense. The entires Sports Spin staff has loved Stanford since the beginning of this season, I think the defense holds and Ty Montgomery makes a big special teams play to power the Cardinal to the Rose Bowl. 31-17

 ACC Championship Game: #20 Duke (10-2) @ #1 Florida State (12-0) 8:00 ABC Charlotte, NC
WHAT THE HELL???? DUKE IS IN A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME????? Jameis will be declared innocent and the Noles will pound Duke 47-20.

Big Ten Championship Game: #2 Ohio State (12-0) @ #10 Michigan State (11-1) Indianapolis, IN
I do not believe Ohio State is a top 5 team, their easy schedule has gotten them to this point. The key to this game will be Michigan State's ability to move the football down the field, and end all possessions on Ohio State's side of the field in points. No turnovers, no missed opportunities. Connor Cook has been playing very well since replacing Andrew Maxwell at quarterback and Jeremy Langord is one of the best backs in the Big Ten. I like Michigan State in an upset, 24-21.

SEC Championship: #3 Auburn(11-1) @ #5 Missouri (11-1)  Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
Both of these teams need to be incredibly pleased with what they've accomplished. Once again, Missouri should be undefeated, but they have an excellent opportunity here to get themselves into a BCS bowl…. But Auburn is a team of destiny, how can you pick against this team? War Eagle in a thriller 37-35.-Josh Neighbors
