(4:30) — Dan and Ty discuss Week 12’s College Football Playoff Rankings.


BIG 12

(12:15) — Kansas State (+2) at West Virginia: Chris the Capper locks up his pick in this matchup. Dan thinks this is a bounce back game for the Mountaineers, and he’s not completely sold on Kansas State. Ty points out that Chris the Capper is leading the Solid Verbal Pick ‘Em pool with a 72-49 record ATS this season, and Ty takes Chris’ side in this pick.


(17:20) — Ole Miss (-3.5) at Arkansas: Ty says this could be a trap game for the Rebels with the Egg Bowl looming next week. Ty says Arkansas doesn’t seem to be able to throw the ball with Brandon Allen at QB. However, Dan claims that statement may be too extreme, noting the game plan to use tight ends in the passing game. Dan also notes the Rebels’ injuries as a factor.

PAC 12

(22:50) — Arizona (+4) at Utah: Ty thinks Arizona is overvalued, and that Utah will be able to control the ball against the Wildcats with Devontae Booker in the running game. Dan says this is about a field goal game, but also says he’s not sold on the Wildcats with yet another close win last week. Dan also likes the speed in Arizona’s 3-3-5 defense.

(34:30) — USC (+3.5) at UCLA: Ty points out how good Cody Kessler has been this season. Ty also notes USC’s balanced offense. Dan says the depth of USC is still a big problem against teams like UCLA, which has the front-line talent to compete against the Trojans, and then more depth.

BIG 10

(27:30) — Wisconson (-10) at Iowa: Both Dan and Ty say they are looking forward to this game, and Ty even going as far as saying that the Big 10 West is “riveting.” Dan is just hoping for an entertaining game, and not a 14-13 snoozer. Dan points out that this team can’t really run the ball, and that the Hawkeyes’ defense’s strength is in the pass defense, which doesn’t really matter against a run-heavy Wisconsin.
