College Football Quick Picks: Conference Championship Week

We’ve finally arrived to the games that really tell us who’s gonna play in what bowl…and maybe this annual BCS mess will be slightly clearer by Monday. Here’s the picks:

#5 Cincinnati -2 @ #15 Pittsburgh, 12:00 on ABC
Not the Big East championship game, but the matchup of the best two teams in the conference. Pittsburgh had a very shaky loss last week, and I like Cincy to go undefeated and be snubbed from any chance in hell at the National Championship game.
Cincinnati 31, Pittsburgh 20

#10 Georgia Tech -1 vs. Clemson, 8:00 on ESPN
Tech will be the better team in the neutral field matchup for the ACC Championship game. Since the line is basically even, I say they squeak it out and roll to a BCS bowl based on Nesbitt’s ability to make plays late in the game.
Georgia Tech 27, Clemson 24…UNDER 57 points

#21 Houston -3 @ East Carolina, 12:00 on ESPN2
Houston puts up points like nobody’s business. They will force the Conference USA Championship to be a shootout and win late, but maybe not over 70 points…
Houston 35, East Carolina 31

#3 Texas -14.5 vs. #22 Nebraska, 8:00 on ABC
Nebraska is the last team that stands in the way of the Horns’ undefeated season and a spot in the National Championship game. Texas has the firepower obviously, but Nebraska should cover the spread in the Big 12 Championship game.
Texas 28, Nebraska 17

#1 Florida -6 vs. #2 Alabama, 4:00 on CBS
Oh right, the most hyped game of the year is here! This SEC Championship is gonna be a rockfight. So much at stake, and I think the key is the Alabama D against Tim Tebow. Betters should stay away from this one, cause I don’t see it getting out of hand either way. I’ll go against the grain and pick Alabama by 1 on a defensive play to win the game.
Florida 20, Alabama 21
