2011 College Football Week 14 Picks

The 2011 college football season is about to wrap up this week as this is pretty much the end of the regular season before the bowl games save for Army-Navy on the 10th. That also means we got some conference championships to decide. The MAC, Pac-12, Conference USA, SEC, B1G Ten and ACC all have their conference championship games this week and we also have some intriguing matchups as well, most notable Bedlam. Here are my picks for this week.
December 1:

West Virginia @ USF, ESPN 8:00
Pick: West Virginia
USF could really shake up the Big East race but West Virginia is better pretty much top to bottom.

December 2:

Ohio vs. Northern Illinois, ESPN2 7:00
Pick: Northern Illinois
These two clubs are very even but I think the experience of this NIU club gives them the edge.

UCLA vs. Oregon, Fox 8:00
Pick: Oregon
Let's be honest, UCLA has no chance. None.

December 3:

Southern Miss vs. Houston, ABC 12:00
Pick: Houston
Southern Miss will be the toughest test for the Cougars all season but I don't think they can slow down Case Keenum and company.

UConn @ Cincinnati, ESPN 12:00
Pick: Cincinnati
UConn was really impressive against Rutgers last Saturday but I don't think they will play like that again

Syracuse @ Pittsburgh, ESPN2 12:00
Pick: Pittsburgh
The Orange have lost four in a row and I don't think the bleeding will be stopped.

Iowa State @ Kansas State, FSN 12:30
Pick: Kansas State
They won't go to a BCS bowl in all likelihood but this Wildcat club will continue to show how good they are.

Wyoming @ Colorado State, the MTN 2:00
Pick: Wyoming
I tell ya, this is a good Wyoming team.

UNLV @ TCU, Versus 2:30
Pick: TCU
UNLV is too feeble to pull off this upset. 

Texas @ Baylor, ABC 3:30
Pick: Baylor
Texas simply can't score. But if Robert Griffin does not play I reserve the right to change my pick after he suffered a concussion against Texas Tech.
LSU vs. Georgia, CBS 4:00
Pick: LSU
Don't get me wrong, Georgia is a very good club. But they aren't LSU and they won't have much trouble.

Idaho @ Nevada, WAC Network 4:00
Pick: Nevada
Chris Ault's Pistol will be omnipotent in Reno.

New Mexico @ Boise State, the MTN 6:00
Pick: Boise State
I hope Lobos fans are getting lathered up for Bob Davie.

BYU @ Hawaii, ESPN2 7:30
Pick: BYU
Kinda sucks that Hawaii always plays a 13th game and this will leave them not eligible for a bowl game.

Utah State @ New Mexico State, KCSG & Aggie Vision 8:00
Pick: Utah State
Gary Anderson is doing great work up in Logan.
Wisconsin vs. Michigan State, Fox 8:00
Pick: Wisconsin
I think the tandem of Russell Wilson and Montee Ball will exact revenge on the Spartans in this rematch.

Virginia Tech vs. Clemson, ESPN 8:00
Pick: Virginia Tech
The Hokie offense has been peaking while the Tiger offense has been getting more and more inconsistent.

Oklahoma @ Oklahoma State, ABC 8:00
Pick: Oklahoma State
I think this is the year the Cowboys finally win Bedlam for the first time since 2002.

Fresno State @ San Diego State, CBS College Sports 8:00
Pick: San Diego State
The tremendous Ronnie Hillman will lead the Aztecs to a nice victory over their soon to be conference rivals.
