COLLEGE FOOTBALL RATINGS & MORE

ALABAMA FINISHES NUMBER ONE!

Alabama remains in the top spot after defeating Clemson 45-40 in the NCAA Championship game. Stanford finishes 2nd after an impressive win over Iowa in the Rose Bowl. Ohio State defeated Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl to move to 3rd, with Clemson and Oklahoma rounding out the top 5.

Michigan State remains at 6th, even after the Alabama beat down, but Michigan jumps up to 7th. Iowa finishes 8th, followed by Mississippi and T.C.U.

Here are the BOWL games, with PICKS and links to the official bowl sites.

I really liked:

B.Y.U. +2 vs. Utah

Also, Utah St., U.C.L.A., Cal, Texas A&M, Florida State, Michigan and Oregon. Lots of favorites this year. I pretty much stunk on those games, though the Oregon game was determined by the Adams injury.

I missed my pick for December 5, and drop to 13-14 for the season. The bowl picks will be loaded soon. Watch this space.

I like Southern Miss +7 @ Western Kentucky. I realize that Western Kentucky is #25 in my rankings this week, but Southern Miss has been on a roll lately. While it is a risk to take those points in what figures to be a high scoring affair (and WKU QB Doughty is really good), I just think that the Golden Eagles may keep it close, and even may win.

I was 2-1 in picks for November 14, moving to 13-13 for the season, and 6-3 for the last 2 weeks:

Florida International +9 @ Marshall

Iowa State +13 vs. Oklahoma State

South Florida +2 vs. Temple

I had a better week on my picks for November 7, hitting my big one, Nebraska over Michigan State, and going 4-2 for the week. I've moved to 11-12 for the season.

Biggest one:

@Nebraska +6 vs. Michigan State

@Clemson -10 vs. Florida State

@Alabama -7 vs. L.S.U.

Auburn +7 @Texas A&M

@Maryland +10 vs. Wisconsin

@West Virginia -7 vs. Texas Tech

Another lousy week (1-2) on my picks for October 31. I'm now 7-10 for the season.

@Virginia +10 vs. Georgia Tech

Vanderbilt +11 @Houston

@N.C. State +10 vs. Clemson

A mixed bag, once again, for my picks last weekend. I missed the Rice game by point, and the Stanford game by 2. All together, 2-3 for the week, moving me to an unimpressive 6-8 for the season.

Picks for October 23-24:

MISSISSIPPI -5 vs. Texas A&M

USC -3 vs. Utah

STANFORD -19 vs. Washington

ARIZONA -7 vs. Washington State

PICK OF THE SEASON!!!! ----->

RICE -7 vs. Army

I missed my only pick this week, and fall to 4-5 on the season.

The only game that interests me for October 17 is taking Louisville +7 @Florida State.

Normally, I would pick @Michigan -7 vs. Michigan State, but it's dangerous betting on a rivalry game.

I was 3-2 on the picks for October 10, moving me to 4-4 on the season.

@Missouri +4 vs. Florida

Miami (Fla.) +7 @Florida State

@Michigan -10 vs. Northwestern

@Pitt -9 vs. Virginia

@Utah State -11 vs. Fresno State

I was 1-2 on the picks for October 3:

@ Georgia Tech -6 vs. N. Carolina

Louisville +3 @ N.C. State

Ohio State -22 @ Indiana

2014 season:

Here is the current

Final College Football Playoff Rankings.

Here are the BOWL games, with PICKS and links to the official bowl sites.

Through 38 games,I am 18-20 against the spread, but I can't seem to buy any luck, because I've missed picks in the last minute in EIGHT games, after Michigan State scored in the final minute to beat Baylor and Houston made a miraculous 4th quarter comeback to edge Pitt. I have had NO WINS in the final minute. Really unbelievable. If I lose only FOUR of those games, my overall record is a decent 18-15. {{SIGH}}

Picks for November 22:

Oregon State +6 at WASHINGTON

TENNESSEE -4 vs. Missouri

IOWA +10 vs. Wisconsin

Picks for November 15:

All right, let's try this again.

Virginia Tech +5 at DUKE

MIAMI +2.5 vs. Florida State

ALABAMA -9.5 vs. Mississippi State

Picks for November 8:

Note: I was 1-2 this week. Not good, but I am due for a good week. But, I really didn't feel very good about these, so I just should have passed.

I'm not quite as confident as with last week's picks, so take these with a grain of salt:

OKLAHOMA -5 vs. Baylor

BOSTON COLLEGE +3 vs. Louisville

And this is a "maybe":

TEXAS +3 vs. West Virginia

I was 2-1 for the official picks last week, as Maryland defeated Penn State straight up, and Miami blasted UNC.

Picks for November 1:

PITTSBURGH -3 vs. Duke

Maryland +3 at PENN STATE

MIAMI (FLA.) -14 vs. North Carolina

Picks for October 25: (NONE)

It's a good thing I had no official picks.

Boston College -14 at WAKE FOREST

WASHINGTON STATE +2 vs. Arizona

Picks for October 17-18:

I was 2-2-1 on the picks this week. I am due for another great week (I hope).

A little scary, because I'm liking all favorites. These are tentative, but if they are still listed on Saturday morning, they become "official":

Clemson -5 at BOSTON COLLEGE

OHIO STATE -21 vs. Rutgers

OREGON -20 vs. Washington

MINNESOTA -14 vs. Purdue

This one is a definite "maybe":

AIR FORCE -10 vs. New Mexico

Picks for October 11

I was 0-3 on the official ones, but I got the T.C.U. one correct.

CLEMSON -9 vs. Louisville

GEORGIA TECH -3 vs. Duke

Alabama -8 at ARKANSAS

I am very tempted to take T.C.U. +7 at BAYLOR. Perhaps I should just list it as a "maybe" ...

Picks for October 4

Last week, I picked SIX games, but totally forgot to post them here. I will list them, after the fact, but I get no official credit, even though I was 5-1. I did text them to someone prior to the weekend, but that does not count. I'll remember for this week:

Marshall -17 at Old Dominion

Oregon State -4 at Colorado

La. Tech -5 vs. UTEP

Georgia Tech +1 vs. Miami, Fla.

Pitt +5 vs. Virginia

Cal +4 at Washington State
