College Football Week 12 Picks

Week 12 in the 2010 College Football Season has arrived and as the season as wound down, bowl bids are in the air and we wonder who will make the BCS (check out my predictions for every bowl game). Before my predictions, here are the highlights of this week in college football, including college football at two famous baseball stadiums.

  • College Gameday will be at Wrigley Field as the friendly confines will host Northwestern and Illinois
  • Yankee Stadium will host a high-profile game of their own between the possibly resurgent Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the bowl-bound Army Black Knights
  • The Big Ten race could see a major shift with Wisconsin heading to the Big House to play Michigan as well as the Ohio State Buckeyes heading to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes of Iowa. 
Now it's time for my predictions. 

Awesome Plays From The NBA: Serge Ibaka

Perhaps you might not have heard of Serge Ibaka of the Oklahoma City Thunder but he is one of the rising young forwards in the league.
