CFPicks – November 14

We’re fully immersed in the Masters, but we didn’t want to leave our college football fans hanging as they prepare for the weekend on the gridiron. Let’s do a quick run of picks: 

Alabama @ LSU: COVID                

Ohio State @ Maryland: COVID 

Texas A&M @ Tennessee: COVID             

Georgia @ Missouri: COVID      

Auburn @ Mississippi State: COVID    

Coastal Carolina @ Troy: COVID     

Gardner-Webb @ Charlotte: COVID 

North Texas @ UAB: COVID 

Rice @ Louisiana Tech: COVID    

Memphis @ Navy: COVID      

Pitt @ Georgia Tech: COVID    

Air Force @ Wyoming: COVID      

Louisiana-Monroe @ Arkansas State: COVID    

Cal @ Arizona State: COVID    

Utah @ UCLA: COVID      

Wake @ UNC: COVID…no wait, they are actually playing! Will the Heels who played FSU & UVA show up? Or the Heels that played Virginia Tech and Duke? We’re going to vote for the latter because that’s what we want to happen. Heels win. 

Wisconsin @ Michigan: Hard to say who is more desperate in this matchup, for very different reasons. Wisconsin’s season is hanging on a thread thanks to multiple cancellations due to COVID, and their star QB is still out due to the Big Ten’s COVID policies. Michigan’s season is hanging on a thread because they have actually played all their games and they didn’t go so well. Wisconsin adds to Michigan’s misery. 

Penn State @ Nebraska: Someone will leave this game with their first win, and we think it will be Penn State. Because as poorly as the Nittany Lions have played so far this year, Nebraska is worse. 

Notre Dame @ Boston College: As many people have mentioned, the last time Notre Dame beat the #1-ranked team, they lost the following week to Boston College and Matt Foley’s brother, Glenn. Pretty amazing success story of two brothers who once lived in a van down by the river. BC wins. 

Arkansas @ Florida: Arkansas is the surprise of the SEC, and they received their own surprise this week – their coach has COVID. So, while Sam Pittman is far exceeding expectations, he won’t be there on Saturday. Gators. Big.  

Miami @ Virginia Tech: This game has all the makings of a Miami team not showing up. A noon kickoff in Blacksburg with a team coming off a loss to Liberty reeks of Miami overlooking them. Hokies with the upset. 

Cal @ UCLA: Each of these team’s opponents for Saturday are riddled with COVID, so they made a quick change and will kick off Sunday morning at 9am at the Rose Bowl. Credit to them for making the game happen. But let’s be honest, we’ll be watching the Masters and stuffing our face with pimiento cheese. So, uhh, UCLA?
