*Results Update (6-1)* Straight Ca$h Homey - Week 13 NCAA Picks

It figures the week I go 4-3 and miss the money game for the first time in 7 weeks, I take the overall lead by a game and half over Brad.  It just so happens we all picked 4-5 games and the ones we didn't, I won.  Blap.  Only two weeks left before the Bowl Season so we are looking at rivalries galore.  You know what that means: THROW OUT THE RECORDS OUT WEEK 1 (Sorry Cal-Stan and ASU-Ariz).  The Leaders Division is on the line in Madison and another Top 3 SEC-West matchup involving LSU.  Here are my 13 picks to click:
Went 6-1 and widened my lead on Brad by 3 games.  I am on fire.  Look the F OUT!

Touchdown, Cougs
Money Game: 8Houston (-3.5) at Tulsa 12:00 CBSSN FRIDAY
Houston is a single digit favorite? Did I miss Tulsa being ranked in the Top 10? No mask or gun needed in this robbery.
W Houston 48 Tulsa 16
Tulsa got the early lead and the only teams Tulsa had lost to were Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Boise.  That is why, along with being at home, they were only 3.5 point underdogs.  FREE MONEY BABY!  The Cougs host Southern Miss for the C-USA title and guess who is going to be in this spot right here?! YOU GOT IT.  GET OFF MY BLOCK!

3Arkansas at 1LSU (-14) 2:30 CBS FRIDAY
Look!  Another Top 3 matchup in the SEC-West.  I would normally take Arkansas, but they just had a player pass away and will not be ready when they take the field in Baton Rouge just in time for your third turkey sando.  I love Thanksgiving break!
W LSU 41 Arkansas 17
Here you go Razorbacks, here's 14 points.  Now bend over because here it comes again. Nice little 41-3 run to put a stamp on LSU's dominance.

14Michigan State (-6.5) at Northwestern 12:00 BTN
MSU has locked up the Legends Division Championship but under a touchdown against NW?  Like.
W Michigan State 31 Northwestern 17
No let down after clinching the Legends division for Sparty as they post their first ever back-to-back 10 win seasons.  Good for Kirk Cousins.

2Alabama (-21) at 24Auburn 3:30 CBS
3 touchdown favorite at your hated rival?  Payback: check. No Cam Newton: check.  That's all I need.  They got up 24 last year.  'Bama wins, they get into the Championship without winning their division and conference (granted LSU beats Arkansas).  Alabama shows up and shows up hard.  38-10 is what I am looking at.
W Alabama 42 Auburn 14
NEVER AGAIN was 'Bama's motto.  Revenge and a better team equal beat down and straight cash homey.

5Virginia Tech (-5.5) at Virginia 3:30 ABC/ESPN2
VT has kept winning after getting punched in the c*ck by Clemson.  No way they are a Top 5 team, but here they are.  UVA is coming off an odd but nice win at FSU but VT has too many weapons for the Hoos.  Hokies by more than 10.
W Virginia Tech 38 Virginia 0
If I listened to Cowherd, I'm sure he would've been happy about this game.  Too bad he sucks balls.  Not too bad UVA is UVA and gives me money.

19Penn State at 16Wisconsin (-14.5) 3:30 ABC
For all the Leaders.  Winner faces Sparty in Indy next week.  Bucky comes out and whoops the Nittanys.  This could look like the Nebraska game 2.0
W Wisconsin 45 Penn State 7
The Badgers win the Leaders division in dominating fashion and win me money.

Florida State at Florida (+2.5) 7:00 ESPN2
Florida was down to Furman at half.  Florida State lost to UVA, Wake earlier in the season.  Preseason top 10 and now, well, they are not back.  Gators are home dogs and what was THE rivalry a few years ago is now THE sunshine pillow fight ('canes notwithstanding).  I like the Gators to show up and keep it close, real close.  THROW THE RECORDS OUT FOR THIS ONE!
L Florida State 21 Florida 0
It's not like FSU dominated.  They had more penalty yards than actual yards.  Let's just say Muschmp's first season was a bit of a struggle.  I thought Brantley was the next big thing.  Guess that Tebow statue isn't coming down any time soon.
