Last weekend was a mixed bag; ITB went 17-8 which is respectable but the games that mattered here UNC-NCSU as well as Clemson-USC and UGA-Georgia Tech were all losers. The weekend's percentage was nice at 68%, bringing the season win/loss total to a relatively strong 144-74 accompanied by a 66.1% rate of getting awesome.
Here's the breakdown, a little foggy because of the rivalry games but I still was above .500 in each league:
Big East (2-2)
Big XII (4-1)
Pac 10 (4-0)
Interleague Rivalries (2-2)
Its the last week of the regular season folks and while it isn't over we definitely need to take a second and beg in classic 1990's R & B style.
Don't yet shed a tear folks as we'll get right into the One Sentence Predictions after the jump...
The Big East
Bill Stewart's Mountaineers are riding high after beating the #9 team in the nation and Noel Devine will give them plenty of lift for a possible Gator Bowl bid; West Virginia 26 Rutgers 17
UConn helps the Bulls continue their horrible trend of being putrid in the cold months of the football season by owning Leavitt's squad in the Constitution State; UConn 24 South Florida 13
The biggest game in the Big East since 2007 and Cincinnati's dream season turns into a nightmare as Dion Lewis abuses their porous defense; Pittsburgh 31 Cincinnati 27
The Big Ten
The Illini follow up their strong performance against Cincinnati with a convincing beat down of Pat Hill's Bulldogs; Illinois 38 Fresno State 24
The Badgers travel to paradise and between the scenery, the food and the sun Wisconsin finds the time to physically manhandle the Warrioers; Wisconsin 41 Hawaii 24
The Pac 10
With Arizona out of the Rose Bowl picture this game has lost some of its luster but a chance to send mighty USC to an 8-4 season is all the inspiration the Wildcats need; Arizona 31 Southern Cal 24
Cal tries to elbow their way into the Holiday Bowl by thumping Washington without Jahvid Best; California 41 Washington 20
A Rose Bowl bid hanging in the balance makes the Civil War even more heated and Jeremiah Masoli shows that he truly is a dark horse Heisman contender; Oregon 37 Oregon State 28
Conference Championship Games
The Tigers avenge a game lost on two fluke-tastic plays by suffocating the Jackets option attack and abusing Georgia Tech's awful defense; Clemson 37 Georgia Tech 21
Texas scored 16 points against OU's defense and Pelini's black shirts are meaner and will be more dominating than Venables group was as Suh puts an exclamation point on his Heisman campaign; Nebraska 17 Texas 10
Power and speed is more lethal than just speed alone as the Tide leave the mighty Gators bruised and bloodied on the canvas to claim the belt in this heavyweight title fight; Alabama 20 Florida 16
Don't worry folks these games deserve more than a sentence and they'll get their due. We'll keep with the theme here before we get our league title game posts up in the coming days.
