With only a couple of weeks left in the season, we need good performances to get back to even. At season’s end, I’ll be posting our overall records in addition to the final Tailgater marks, but for now:
Zach Bigalke: 51-52-2 (4-5)
John Mitchell: 46-57-2 (2-7)
Matt Strobl: 47-55-3 (3-6)
Week 13 Picks
Notre Dame’s season will end today. Either the Irish beat USC and secure a berth in the National Championship game, or they lose to the Trojans and, most likely, see those title hopes go up in smoke. With too many other talented programs nipping at their heels and an overall body of work filled with question marks, the Irish need to impress in their final effort.
Week 13 is rivalry weekend. The Game. The Civil War. Bedlam. The Iron Bowl. The Egg Bowl. The Apple Cup. Florida and Florida State. South Carolina and Clemson. Georgia Tech and Georgia. These are the times that try fans’ souls. Well, okay…that might be a bit of an exaggeration in many of these cases as some the all-time rivalries have been decidedly lopsided of late. Still, even the mismatches bring with them the weight of college football history.
Here’s what the Tailgater crew is predicting in college football this week. Rankings are according to the AP Top 25 poll. All times are eastern. All picks are against the spread as defined by Yahoo! Sports’ final lines.
