College Football Week 14 and Army-Navy Game picks by The Spun staff members.
Well, it all comes down to this. For our final edition of staff picks, we’ve rolled together the Week 14 and conference championship games we’re selection, as well as the Army-Navy Game, which stands alone on December 10. That leaves us with 10 total games left to pick from. Considering our publisher Matt Lombardi has a five-pick lead entering the week, we’re those of us in contention are going to need some serious help to pull this one out.
Last week, Andrew McCarty continued his hot picking, leading all staff members by three picks at 26-10. He is all the way up to third for the full season, and is in striking distance of the crown.
Here are the full office standings through 13 weeks:
This weekend, we have nine games over two days. On Friday night, Western Michigan looks to Row The Boat to a 13-0 season, and put itself in the driver’s seat for the Group of Five spot in the New Year’s Six bowl games. Later that night, Washington and Colorado meet in the Pac-12 Championship, which will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. Washington currently sits at No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings, while Colorado has an outside chance to crash the party at No. 8. We know which squad Michigan will be rooting for.
On Saturday, there is a slate of Big 12 games, including a de facto conference championship at Bedlam between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in Norman. Wisconsin and Penn State jockey for Playoff position in the Big Ten title game, while Alabama and Clemson look to secure their bids in the SEC and ACC Championships, respectively.
Here are our staff picks for every Power Five and Top 25 game for College Football Week 14, as well as the Army-Navy game the following week.
