Big Ten Championship Picks: Michigan State vs. Ohio State Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 12/4/2013
When the Spartans and the Buckeyes meet on the field in Indianapolis, it will be a study in contrasts. The Buckeyes are where they are thanks largely to an impressive offense. Michigan State has a world-class defense. Ohio State is loaded with highly-touted recruits at every position. The Spartans have exactly one starter, Max Bullough, who was a four-star recruit, and they have no five-stars.

SEC Championship Picks: Auburn vs. Missouri Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/4/2013
This game — the battle of the Tigers — is a perfect example of why college football is so great. Last year Auburn was 3-9 and a perfect 0-8 in SEC play. Missouri was only 5-7 in their first year in SEC play and only earned conference wins over lousy Kentucky and Tennessee squads. Missouri looked like they didn’t belong in their new conference, and Auburn barely looked like they belonged in FBS.

Free College Football Picks: Texas A&M at Missouri Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/29/2013
At the start of the year you might have looked at this game and imagined that it could have implications for a berth in the SEC Championship Game. Only the most imaginative would have guessed, though, that it would be the Tigers that were playing for their shot at immortality, while the Aggies are all but irrelevant. For Missouri it’s simple — win and they claim the SEC East and play the winner of the Iron Bowl in the SEC Championship next weekend. Lose and South Carolina earns the berth.

Free College Football Picks: Baylor at Oklahoma State Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/21/2013
For the second straight week, Baylor is playing in one of the two games we are previewing. That’s because for the second straight week their game is one of the two biggest being played when they face off at Oklahoma State. This week’s mega-showdown in the Big 12 makes last week’s game against Texas Tech look like an exhibition game.

Free College Football Picks: Baylor vs. Texas Tech Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/13/2013
Baylor certainly made a statement last time out. Despite their impressive 7-0 start, their critics were quick to point out that the teams they had dismantled were far from an impressive group — when West Virginia is the best team you have beaten, you haven’t really beaten anyone. Oklahoma was their first chance to prove that they were legitimate, and their 29-point win made it harder to be disrespectful of this team.

Free College Football Picks: LSU at Alabama Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/6/2013
The Tide are in a position that is not that familiar to them — they are facing what is essentially a must-win game. The last two years they have been able to lose a game in November and still bounce back to play in — and win — the National Championship Game. This year, though, the SEC isn’t as dominant as it has been, and one loss would be tough for Alabama to overcome unless Oregon, Florida State, Ohio State and Baylor all falter. Win and they are all but certain to get another title shot, though, so what they need to do is obvious.

by Trevor Whenham - 10/30/2013
Michigan and Michigan State really don’t like each other. There has never been any love lost between the two, but in recent years the rivalry has intensified. They are playing for more than a win here. That is what makes college football so great.

Free College Football Picks: Texas Tech at Oklahoma Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 10/24/2013
Before the season started the likely storyline for this game seemed clear. It seemed like we would quite likely see an undefeated team trying to stay that way against a feisty-but-flawed opponent. What few could possibly have imagined, though, is that the unbeaten squad would be Texas Tech or that Oklahoma would be reeling after a sound beating by the mess that is masquerading as Texas these days.

Free College Football Picks: Florida State at Clemson Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 10/17/2013
A lot of people are calling this the biggest game in ACC history. While that may be going a bit far, there is little doubt that when the Seminoles and the Tigers clash it will be the biggest game in the conference since 2005 when No. 5 Miami beat No. 3 Virginia Tech. Both teams faltered down the stretch after that game, so these two squads will have to be careful to avoid the same fate regardless of how this game turns out.

Before the season started, I would have suggested that this game was important for Mack Brown’s future. Now things have changed. We all know how things are going to turn out there — it would require a major miracle for Brown to still be coaching this team next year. What this game will likely determine, though, is how he gets to leave. With a win here he stands a much better chance of being able to retire on his own terms and leave with his pride at least partly intact.
