College Football Picks - Week 11

***Looking for our NFL Week 10 picks? Get them here!***

The last two weeks have been spectacular in college football.  But the best is yet to come.  It starts with a Friday night edition of #Pac12AfterDark when Washington goes to Stanford for a game that means everything in the Pac-12 North and it's a game that Washington has to have if the Huskies want to stay alive in the College Football Playoff (CFP).  Saturday features six "ranked versus ranked" matchups, including the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry:  Georgia at Auburn.  Georgia was ranked #1 in the CFP Rankings that came out this week, and you can read them here.  But Georgia must continue to win and it won't be easy in Auburn this Saturday.  That's an afternoon game, as is Wisconsin-Iowa.  Like Georgia, Wisconsin must win here to stay alive in the CFP race.  Then there are three can't-miss Saturday night games in prime time.  Alabama has to go to Mississippi State, which could be tricky.  TCU goes to Oklahoma, and Notre Dame goes to Miami.  Both of those games are absolutely de facto playoff games.   The winners will continue to contend; the losers will play for New Year's Six bowls, but not the CFP.  Now let's get ready for Week 11, including our game picks.  From the Group of 5 to the Power 5, all the commentary, previews, and picks that you need are right here!

Pick-6 for NFL Week 9

Time for the NFL Week 9 picks. We looked back at Week 8, made some mid-season predictions, and previewed this week's best matchups on the podcast. We even discussed the initial College Football Playoff rankings, the first couple weeks of the NBA season, and did a little college basketball preview. Sam and KAM typically give their NFL picks away on the podcast so if you want them in advance (and who doesn’t?) then check it out! On to this week's games:

College Football Picks - Week 10

Last week was one of those de facto in-season playoff weeks in college football and it did not disappoint.  Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Ohio State kept their College Football Playoff (CFP) hopes alive.  Penn State and TCU made it a lot harder for themselves.  And we have Alabama, Miami, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, and a few others that are right in the mix.  The initial CFP Rankings are out, and you can read them here.  Just keep in mind that we have several weeks to go, including conference championships the first weekend in December.  Now let's get ready for Week 10, including our game picks.  From the Group of 5 to the Power 5, all the commentary, previews, and picks that you need are right here!

College Football Picks - Week 9

***Looking for our NFL Week 8 picks? Get them here!***

Last week we had a couple huge prime time games when Michigan went to Penn State, and USC went to Notre Dame.  What did we learn?  That the home teams did not disappoint, and both the Nittany Lions and the Fighting Irish are very much in the College Football Playoff (CFP) picture.  The road teams from those games will not be hitting the road later this year for the CFP.  With Michigan and USC bounced from the CFP race, it's time to focus on some of the teams that didn't come into 2017 quite so heralded?  Like Georgia, Miami, NC State, Notre Dame, and TCU.  With four of the AP's top five teams playing away from home this weekend, which contenders could go down next?  From the Group of 5 to the Power 5, all the commentary, previews, and picks that you need are right here!
