Pick It and Stick It: Holiday Nosicles


Here we go into the last week of picks and there’s not that many to choose from.  That’s a good thing, though, because most of our focus is squa’ on the holidays.  Turkey Day is over and it’s a full bore Christmas conga line.  Most of our shopping is done and that’s a first for the KCCGD crew.  Usually it’s a last minute managerie through the isles of crappy malls and Targets.  Since we’re done, we are going to focus on the nicer things for the holidays.  Like  bowl games. After this weekend, we’ll find out who will play who and when.  Tune in as we will make our list and check it twice for bowlspots to watch football games on holiday nights.  But first, here’s the last pick set:

To kick off the set of games, we have a triple head of mega close games.  The first of which is the most intriguing with Cincinnati taking on Pittsburgh in the River City Rivalry.  This one will help figure out who goes to the BCS in the Big East.  Does anybody know that Cincinnati is undefeated?  Speaking of undefeated, Boise State looks to roll New Mexico State to keep their streak alive.  The point spread is ridiculous.  Finally, in the biggest match up of the year to date, Florida will take on Alabama in the SEC Championship.  Later on it’s a double header of Big 12 and ACC action.  Georgia Tech looks to rebound and try to stop C.J.Spiller and Clemson from knocking them out of a BCS bowl.   Finally we have the undefeated Texas Longhorns taking on the Nebraska Cornhuskers.  The spread is a little wide and we’re thinking that Vegas is overlooking Nebraska’s toughness.  It’s going to be a close one folks and we’ll be watching ever snap.
