So much for doing anything productive to work off that excess of fat in your stomach. Throw any ideas of getting off the couch out the window. There is absolutely no time for rash decisions like that. Have you seen how many games there are on Friday? WOWWW! It’s like the miracle of College Football is being delivered a day early by the Thanksgiving gods. Thank you wondrous Turkey Gods for your thoughtful gifts. We accept them graciously. Mahhhhhhhhhhh, grab me a beer. I’ll also need 12 road beers. For Free! Best weekend of the year! LSU -24.5 v. Arkansas The Tigers are undefeated in Baton Rouge this season and are coming off of their best win of the season, a 34-10 beat down of the fighting Manziel’s. Arkansas is a dismal team whose record accurately depicts how putrid they have been in their first season under Bret Bielema. The Razorbacks come in 3-8 and have yet to record a road victory. LSU is hot and the ride should continue on the back of QB Zach Mettenberger, who will have all the time he wants in the pocket. LSU in a rout. Prediction: LSU 48 – Arkansas 13 UCF -27 v. South Florida Blake Bortels ALERT! UCF somehow has a realistic opportunity to make it to a BCS Bowl game this season and their last regular season test comes against a South Florida team that simply can’t compete. UCF has the talent and the motivation to take it to USF in a big way. This one will be over within the first fifteen minutes. You think I’m joking too. 35-0 after the first quarter. Yeah, I said it. Book it! Prediction: UCF 61 – USF 17 Fresno State -7.5 @ San Jose State Is Derek Carr making a push for an invitation to New York City? Are there really going to be TWO FSU’s in BCS games this season? What in the world is going on? And why in the hell are the Carr brothers so freaking incredible in college? I have so many questions and not enough answers. Anyways, with a BCS trip on the line for the Bulldogs I see no way they drop this game in San Jose to a team that just lost to Navy and couldn’t play defense with 2×4’s strapped to their arms. Fresno State and SJSU are going to throw the ball all over the field and there should be over 100 points scored in this contest. Fresno State is going to be scoring most of those points. Prediction: Fresno State 58 – SJSU 48 Oregon -21.5 v. Oregon State The Ducks have lost two of their last three games after beginning the season 8-0. Oregon has lost it’s way because of a lack of leadership by the senior players and because the coaches have failed to motivate. When you play in the Pac 12 your goal every season should be to win the Conference and the Rose Bowl. The Ducks, admittedly, were less than interested in a return to the Granddaddy of them all this season. Why the were disinterested in making ANOTHER BCS game is beyond my grasp. Oregon State is coming off a 69-27 loss to Washington and their defense doesn’t look interested in competing at all. That is bad news against this Ducks offense that can put up 60 points without blinking. The Ducks are officially out of the BCS conversation but should be motivated to continue their domination of “little brother” Oregon State. Ducks in a rout. Prediction: Oregon 59 – Oregon State 24 Washington -14 v. Washington State The Apple Cup is on the line Friday night in Seattle. The Huskies are fresh off a 69-27 demolition of Oregon State and should be fired up after losing last years Cup 31-28. Meanwhile, Washington State clinched a bowl birth last weekend against Utah and has been one of the most surprising teams in the Pac 12 this season. Bishop Sankey, Washington’s star RB, is only 121 yards away from breaking Corey Dillon’s 1996 single-season rushing record. You don’t think that the Huskies and their fans are going to be imploring the team to get Sankey those yards? Oh, he’s getting those yards. The biggest subplot to this matchup is that if Steve Sarkisian, the Washington Head Coach, doesn’t win this game is he going to be fired? If Sarkisian can’t beat the Cougs this weekend it is my personal opinion that he is going to be roaming the sidelines of USC next year as the offensive coordinator for Ed Orgeron. My gut tells me Washington has too much to lose on Friday and won’t let that happen.
