With several conference championship games set for this weekend, FS1 radio host Colin Cowherd revealed his ‘Marquee 3’ picks. Every week he makes predictions for the top three matchups in college football.
The first game that Cowherd discussed was the Pac-12 Championship between Oregon and Utah. In order to have any chance at making the College Football Playoff, the Utes will have to take down the Ducks.
Cowherd likes Oregon from a betting standpoint, but he believes Utah will win 24-23 on Friday.
Moving over to the SEC Championship, Cowherd is very confident that LSU can defeat Georgia by a wide margin. His reasoning behind that is because Joe Burrow is playing at an elite level and the Bulldogs are dealing with a few injuries.
As for his score prediction, Cowherd has LSU winning 36-27 this weekend.
The final conference championship that Cowherd previewed was the Ohio State-Wisconsin game. The Buckeyes blew out the Badgers in their first meeting, but the rematch could be closer.
Cowherd has Ohio State winning 33-20 over Wisconsin. However, it wouldn’t surprise him if Ryan Day’s squad is pushed to the limit entering the fourth quarter.
Oregon (+6.5) vs. Utah
Georgia vs. LSU (-7)
