Week 12 College Football Odds

Tech may be off, but there are quite a few other games this weekend. We take a look at what Vegas says and how the writers are doing in their Pick Em contest

Week 11 Recap

Well I guess the writers were due to have a bad week of picks. Nobody went over .500, with the best score at 16-19. However, all 5 that picked this past week were very close in points, with only 20 points separating the top from the bottom, and only 7 points between the top 4. Nobody went over 300 points, even with 35 games to pick, as had happened the past 3 weeks. First, a look at the overall standings and the past few weeks' results.

The overall rankings are still very close, and Drew and Hunter have been flipping back between 2nd and 3rd almost every week lately. Hunter has done quite well with his confidence points, having picked 13 less games correctly than Drew, yet has 12 more points. One reason for the bad week of picks was the in-conference games of the Big 12, with TCU struggling against Kansas and the Cyclones giving Oklahoma State everything they could.
