The Idiots’ Guide to Week 13

NCAA Football: Alabama at Auburn Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Well it is a big week for Boston College, but there is a lot of football going on.

Shoutout to everyone who left a comment last week, it feels good to hear that people are reading. These previews are hard, but hopefully I have a bunch of good matchups to preview this week. So let’s see!

Thursday, Nov. 21

Ga. Tech over NC State


The fact that a 2-8 Georgia Tech team is favored over NC State should show how bad NC State has been this year. But I'm sure the ACC media will put them in like third or something next year in the division.

Friday, Nov. 22

Wyoming over Colorado State

Saturday, Nov. 23

Ohio State over Penn State

Seriously, who is in charge of scheduling the Big 10? This may be the biggest matchup in the conference this year, and it’s scheduled just around the west coast is waking up. They have got to get some better scheduling, this is an ABC primetime game. Instead people are going to have split time between College Gameday (that the OSU fanbase is boycotting for some reason?) and the game that is going to start right after Gameday goes off the air.

Alabama over The Team That They Paid to Play Before Auburn

Minnesota over Northwestern

If you’re not sad about last week I can’t help you.

Fire Gary Danielson. Seriously, those sidelines are so dangerous, and having been down there/known people down there, that was the absolute worst case scenario. Thank God she was ok, and please find someone else to do SEC games.
