NCAA Football Predictions - Turkey Special

The turkey's about to come out of the oven and the rolls are ready to go in. I hope you save room for some pumpkin pie to go with your choice of football this afternoon. Texas A&M at Texas kicks off a busy three days of rivalries tonight after an NFL slate that seems less than appetizing. I've selected a smattering of games to focus on. Before the weekend is over we'll know if Bamacan break off Tuberville's seventh finger before he raises it with the other six. And we'll know if the Jackets really do won't a win over the Dawgs more than anything else.

Last week's results : 7-3. Not bad. Let's build on that momentum....... 

Please pass the gravy. 

  1. (Thursday, 8pm) Texas A&M really stands no chance against a Texas team that is looking to "beef" up its resume heading into Big 12 South Selection Sunday, not to mention a possible tap on the shoulder to play in the BCS Championship. The game is in Austin, it is at night .....methinks the Longhorns put up Boomer-Sooner type numbers. 'Horns (-35) 52,Ags 14.
  2.  (Friday, noon) In a rematch of a game that helped give Les "Ismore" Miles another chance last year, Pitt gets the Mountaineers at home. Surely Pat White and Noel Devine are looking for revenge against a team that kept them from reaching new heights last year. Plus a win keeps West VA in contention for the Big East title. That being said, Pitt wins a close one. But cheer up Mountaineers! Your season has been remarkably better thanRichRod's. Pitt 31, WVa (-3.5) 27
  3. (Friday 12:30pm)  The Egg Bowl resumes in Vaught-Hemingway and Nutt is still as giddy as he can be at leaving Fayetteville and turning things around in an Orgeronless Oxford. A Rebel win can put them in the Cotton Bowl. Croom's Bulldogs keep this a game well past halftime, but Ole Miss puts it away in the fourth. Rebs (-16) 28, Missy St 17
  4. (Friday, 2:30pm) Petrino is one game away from his annual resume re-evaluation. LSU'spass defense is as porous as a sieve. Luckily Arkansas hasn't the weapons to torch them. Still they'll score some points and move the chains, but the Tigers feast of the pigs in the end. Ragin'Cajuns (-4.5) 34, hawgs 17
  5. (Saturday, noon) The Dawgs (-8) look to extend a lengthy streak against the Yellow Jackets and are back home after more than a month on the road. This could be a nailbiter, but turnovers will continue to dog the insects and the UGA defense becomes lass charitable at the right time, keeping the yellow flags in the refs' pockets. (An in-depth analysis comes out tomorrow at )
  6. (Saturday, noon) Gamecocks seemed near crisis back in September and have steadied the ship. Dabo's stock rises every day that Bobby Johnson spends staying in Nashville. Tigers will get off the bus, touch that rock and run down that hill....but Darth Visor gets the better of the youthful Swinney behind the play of a very tough defense. Cocky 24, Tigers (-1) 13
  7. (Saturday, 3:30pm) Pundits already have Bama losing to Florida in Atlanta next weekend. I doubt Saban is letting his youngsters listen. There are six reasons why Bama is paying attention to the visiting Tigers. The streak doesn't reach 7 and the War Eagles that make the trip are flying for the exits by the end of the 3rd quarter. Roll Tide! (-14) 42, Tubs 10
  8. (Saturday, 3:30pm) Pundits already have Bama losing to Florida in Atlanta next weekend. I doubt Meyer is letting his youngsters listen. (Deja vu...??) One thing Spurrier never did in Tallahassee - win. One tie, but no wins. On Saturday Urban can record his second win inBowdenLand. In fact, Meyer has yet to lose to the Seminoles. That doesn't change this year. reptiles 35 (-16.5), 'Noles 14
  9. (Saturday, 7:00pm) The Ducks waddle into Corvallis hoping to rain on the Beavers' parade. The Beavers haven't been to the Rose Bowl since the granddaddies were just plain ol' daddies. Rose Bowl officials will rattle their canes and take out their dentures in pulling for the Ducks, but the Beavers will only need one Rogers brother to grasp this rose and a Pac-10 Championship. dambuilders (-3) 27, rubberduckies 20
  10. (Saturday, 8:00pm) This one's easy. No snow is expected in the LA area, so the Wimperin'Irish will not be distracted by frozen white balls hurled at them. But that will be the only positive for Weis' team in atrophy. Of course, Irish fans may be waiting for the at the airport with another arsenal. Trojans (-30.5) name their score. I'll shoot for 48 to 3.
There you go friends. Wager at your own risk. I'm going to build a turkey sandwich.....
