Championship Week Predictions - College Football

I have been very tied this week and haven't gotten to last weeks results until this morning. Last week was Thanksgiving and there were lots of games last Friday. Some great action as Virginia knocked off Virginia Tech on Friday and on Saturday, Auburn dismantled Alabama in a thriller.

This week is conference Championship week. Outside the Top 4, only 3 other teams have realistic hopes. Utah, Oklahoma and Baylor. Georgia controls their own destiny if they win and the other three teams will be out of luck.

Last week I went 41-20 for a season total of 584-226.

Here is who I would have my college football playoff if the season ended today.

#1 LSU
#4 Georgia

#2 Clemson 
#3 Ohio State

Week 14 College Football Predictions

Last week we saw one team fall out of playoff contention when Oregon lost in Tempe to the Arizona Sun Devils. The five still have a chance along with Utah, Minnesota and Oklahoma.

We only have two weeks left in the college football season before bowl season starts.

Last week, I went 39-15 for a yearly total of 543-206. I know that the record isn't a good indicator of how well I know because I predict every game. I mean, some games its super clear who is going to win.

Here is who I would have my college football playoff if the season ended today.

#1 LSU
#4 Georgia

#2 Clemson

Vikings on Verge of Special Season

I feel like this is the Vikings best chance at a Super Bowl this year. I'm not holding my breathe on Dalvin Cook being healthy in the coming years and even then, running backs don't have the longest shelf life.

The chance of getting a bye is still possible but we will need to beat both the Packers and the Seahawks and likely win out.

I don't trust Kirk Cousins on the road in the playoffs, but if we only have to win two games at home, our chances go up by quite a bit.

I have Cerebal Palsy but sports help me forget about what I have against me. I would like to thank you guys for helping me feel accepted for who I am.

My goal is to write about the Vikings more often because I feel passionate about our fanbase and I think it is the best fanbase in the world.

I'm curious what everyone else thinks about this team? The state of Minnesota? I mean, outside of the zero Championships since the 1991 Minnesota Twins, the city regularly wins division titles between the four major sports.

Something special is around the corner for this team. I don't know exactly what that is though. The Monday Night game against Seattle will tell us a lot. Btw, cheer for Seattle to beat Philly this week. Russell Wilson doesn't usually lose two in a row.

I desperately want to get to Minneapolis soon and would love to meet some of you guys. I feel really part of something right now.

We also all have to remember that things could be worse. Most games this year have been stressful but the reality is they have been stressful because we feel close to accomplishing a goal. Winning the Super Bowl!

College Football - Week 13 Predictions

I wasn't able to watch many games this week and therefore I never saw Tua's controversial injury that will have him sidelined the rest of the year.

I recorded Oklahoma's thrilling and also heartbreaking comeback over Baylor on Saturday. I heart is devastated for Baylor.

My record was 35-15 last week which brings my record to 504-191.

Here is where I would have in my CFP bracket. With Alabama's injury, they are close to being eliminated from CFP discussion. 

#1 LSU
#4 Georgia

#2 Clemson 
#3 Ohio State
