College Football: The Penultimate Picks

It was rivalry week in the world of college football, but the foundation for the rest of the season was set this weekend. I hope you’ve had a great Thanksgiving weekend, hope you got plenty of turkey and naps, hope your team won (unless you’re a Michigan fan), and hope you’ve gotten to blast a TSO album or 4. Here’s how we did this week. For more on what we thought of this week’s action, the shakeup in the BCS, and a bit on whose going bowling where, check out this week’s BangCast on Wednesday night.

As for this competition, well it’s pretty much over. With only one more week left in the regular season, I’ve got a 6 game lead on TJ and would have to make some pretty horrid picks to surrender all of that in one week. College football is the first in our fall picking treble. But it doesn’t look like anyone’s going to be a triple winner this year. The bowl challenge starts in a few weeks and everyone get’s reset to zero then.
