Fithian’s Fab Five

All or nothing for Michigan State. Spartans have the defense and they beat em once already this season. That first game was an absolute classic. This one, I don’t think is as  attractive of a game, but I do think MSU has a huge advantage in the coaching department. Too many times I’ve watched Bret Bielema make questionable coaching decisions with the game on the line. The last time I felt that way towards Bielema? The last time these two played.

Pick Spartans and the points: Wisconsin 30 Michigan State 24

SEC Championship game LSU spotted Arkansas 14 points last week and was still able to come back catch the Hogs and cruise by for the cover. This time the Tigers run into one of the best QB’s in the country in the Bulldogs Aaron Murray. Murray does enough to keep it close.

Pick Bulldogs and the points: LSU 31 Georgia 21

Oklahoma vs Oklahoma State Cowboys got a pretty good QB/WR combo but so do the Sooners.

Pick Sooners and the points: Oklahoma State 35 Oklahoma 34

Baylor Robert Griffin III still with an outside shot at a Heisman.

Pick: Baylor -3: Baylor 45 Texas 38

Rainbow’s getting eight points on the island? Got enough info

Pick Hawaii +8: BYU 42 Hawaii 38

The Superdome, Drew Brees on a role and the Lions banged up. It doesn’t always follow  that the trends keep up in the NFL, but the way Brees is playing does hold up from week to week. Bad time to have a banged up running game, secondary and a suspended  Suh.

I don’t see any way the Lions can stay close in this one barring a Brees injury.

Pick New Orleans 45 Detroit 35

Jets -3 v Redskins  I’ll go with the better team and the low number

Pick: New York 20 Washington 14

Colts +21 Pats sometime the number is just too big not to take it maybe dip it

With the over/under 48

Pick: New England 31 Indy 13 under 48

    Pat your green underwear is showing. That first MSU Badger game was not a classic. In fact it was a picture of a team beaten in every aspect of the game but by hook or by crook they won. I don’t think State has a snowballs chance in hell
    to even stay close in tonight’s game. I think Wisconsin will then say this was the classic. MSU is so overrated and Cousins will never be a pro QB. Makes to many
    dumb decisions.. Oh maybe he could be a Big 10 Coach or official.
