Things got a little better this past week with the picks. I’m still not going to end too hot, but one victory will make me forget all of that. I think you know the game of which I speak.
Bowl Season: 18-16 (52.9%)
Regular Season: 86-27 (76.1%)
Overall: 104-43 (70.7%)
BBVA Compass Bowl (11 a.m. ESPN)
Pittsburgh vs. Kentucky – Let’s see, Pitt lost a coach, fired the replacement, and still doesn’t have the next replacement. Kentucky suspended their quarterback and will be playing with a backup. Wow, there isn’t any other place I’d rather be than at Legion Field tomorrow. Actually there is…I’d take a dentist appointment in the pit of hell with Richard Simmons performing “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” live and in person right next to me over going to this game.
Seriously though, just snap the ball to Randall Cobb and you’ll win, Kentucky.
Kentucky 31, Pittsburgh 27
Pittsburgh 27, Kentucky 10 – FAILURE
Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (8 p.m. ESPN)
Nevada vs. Boston College – Newly famous and previously homeless Ted Williams (not the frozen head) will make his commercial debut at some point during the broadcast of this game. I guarantee half the people watching will be doing so just to catch the commercial. Why is the the last game before the only one that matters?
Nevada 38, Boston College 17
Nevada 20, Boston College 13 – SUCCESS!
BCS National Championship Game (7:30 p.m. ESPN)
Oregon vs. Auburn – Well, there were a few eleventy billions and quite a few Roman number predictions (because of how I worded the prediction request tweet), but one thing was clear according to the Twit-Fam: Auburn is going to win. In fact, not one person picked the Ducks, which is surprisingly strange. There is usually some Bammer or member of the opposite fanbase that sneaks on here trying to skew the average, but not this week. You may say the Twit-Fam is biased, but how can you argue against them? After all, they are perfect on their predictions this year? Here is the average:
Auburn 41, Oregon 30
Auburn 22, Oregon 19 – SUCCESS!
