Week 12 Predictions: Cupcakes Are Good

I figured out what I was doing in week 11. I started picking with my anger, rather than picking with my brain. Never pick with your anger.

Last week: 5-4 (55.6%)
This week: 0-0 (0.0%)
Overall: 78-35 (69.0%)

The nation is mad at the SEC for playing cupcakes before their final game of the season. Guess what, football wasn’t invented for your viewing pleasure. Get over it.


The Citadel at Alabama – As soon as this game is over, Alabama will be officially out of the running for the College Football Playoffs. That’s how it works, right?

Alabama 56, The Citadel 0

Idaho at Florida – The vandals are back in action and they’ll be hosting the football team from Idaho this weekend. Ohhhhhh……

Florida 42, Idaho 10

Middle Tennessee at Kentucky – The Wildcats have literally given up since being knocked out of the SEC East race, but they’re better than the Blue Raiders.

Kentucky 31, Middle Tennessee 14

Arkansas at Mississippi State – Oh, an SEC game. Arkansas is better than their record and it’s amazing how much my attitude has changed on them since Bert left. State is meh, Arkansas will win in front of a meh crowd.

Arkansas 28, Mississippi State 21

Missouri at Tennessee – Oh, another SEC game. Tennessee has to win one of their last two games to go bowling. The way they beat Kentucky last week, they’ll probably win both. Yep. They’ll beat Missouri.

Tennessee 27, Missouri 17

UMass at Georgia – It’s the Minutemen vs. the Redcoats, so basically if you’re pulling for Georgia you were pulling for America to lose the Revolutionary war. Make the right choice. But I’ve gotta keep my picks intact.

Georgia 49, UMass 7

UAB at Texas A&M – Everybody wants this to be a good, close game because it’s just a nice story for UAB to come back from nothing and win… Conference USA. They needed overtime to beat Southern Miss. Texas A&M is on a little bit different level, I think.

Texas A&M 31, UAB 10

Ole Miss at Vanderbilt – Vandy is done. Ole Miss has at least been hanging around. The Rebels will win it going away.

Ole Miss 38, Vanderbilt 17

Chattanooga at South Carolina – It’s Mocs and the Cocks. That’s all I got.

South Carolina 45, Chattanooga 10

Rice at LSU – The corndogs think Rice is delicious. It is an integral part of gumbo, after all.

LSU 34, Rice 13

Liberty at Auburn – Check back later for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: give me death.

Auburn 45, Liberty 10

Other Games of Note

Syracuse at Notre Dame – Everybody wants to talk about the SEC playing some weak opponents this week, but this is one of the best games on the national slate. That says a lot. Notre Dame is wearing pinstripes in Yankee Stadium. Syracuse is having a nice season by their standards, but it’s not enough.

Notre Dame 24, Syracuse 14

Cincinnati at UCF – UCF finally plays a ranked opponent in the regular season, and it’s a pretty decent one. The Bearcats have just one loss on the season, and they’ll have one loss on the season after this one, too.

Cincinatti 38, UCF 35

Now that you know who will win, head on over to the 2018 War Blogle Pick ’em and get your picks in. There will be weekly prizes and an overall winner at the end of the season. It’s easy. Do it.
