The picks have taken a back seat for awhile, however, they are making a comeback this week for the conference championship games.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say each and every conference should have a conference championship game, especially if the NCAA higher-ups are not going to consider a playoff-system to replace the current BSC/bowl games.

Without further adieu, back to the picks.
MAC Championship

Ball St. (-16) over Buffalo

Quarterback Nate Davis (24 touchdowns) and running back MiQuale Lewis (20 touchdowns) have led Ball St. to a 12-0 record so far this year. The Cardinals defense ranks 10th in the NCAA in points allowed, averaging a meager 16.7 per game. Ball St. will roll to an easy win, however, will not be awarded a spot in a BSC bowl game.

Conference USA Championship

Tulsa (-12) over East Carolina

The Cinderella season for ECU ended abruptly after they started the season on a roll, capturing the hearts of college football fans nationwide. Tulsa is led by stud quarterback David Johnson (42 touchdowns). Tulsa is getting a lot of points, but look for them to cover, beating a team who peaked after Week 3.

ACC Championship

BC (-1) over Virgina Tech

Can’t go against my eagles in this game. It is hard to beat a team three times in a season, and BC is without their starting quarterback Chris Crane (broken collarbone); but BC finds a way to win this game. The Eagles defense is rock solid (1st in interceptions, 8th in total yards, and 7th in rushing yards). Defense gets the job done, scoring a TD, while putting the Eagles in good field position with key turnovers all day. Boston College will be heading to the Orange Bowl.

SEC Championship

Alabama (+10) over Florida

Very tough game to predict with the winner going to the National Championship. I’m giving Alabama an edge to cover the points only because Florida’s Percy Harvin will be limited (if he can play at all) after suffering an ankle injury last week against Florida State. Tim Tebow will struggle against Alabama’s stout defense without Harvin, and the Tide will take advantge, wearing down the Gators defense with running back Glenn Coffee. True-freshman Julio Jones will also have another big-game on a big-stage, being the go to guy for Alabama and quarterback John Parker Wilson.

Big 12 Championship

Oklahoma (-17) over Missouri

Another semi-final type game for the Sooners, as they may be destined for the National Champhionship win a win. Too much offense for Oklahoma, with sophmore sensation Sam Bradford (46 touchdowns) leading the way through the air and DeMarco Murray (18 touchdowns) pounding the Missouri defense on the ground. Missouri has had a dissapointing season, and will get trounced by the Sooners, who are arguably playing the best football in the country right now.
