Championship Game Predictions

Big Ten- Michigan State vs. Wisconsin
In the inaugural Big Ten championship two prolific squads face-off in a rematch. Both like to run but both can pass. Montee Ball has been dominant this year pushing the pace already with 34 touchdowns and Russell Wilson can scramble. Wilson is now comfortable in this offense and has a top option with Nick Toon. Kirk Cousins capped off the regular season victory with a hail mary. He won't put up five touchdowns a game especially against the Badgers but he is efficient. Both defenses aren't as strong as their offenses but are still above average. Wilson will get a lot of pressure from the Spartans big man in the middle Jerel Worthy. Both are ready to seize the championship but the Badgers are just too good too lose. Wisconsin, 35 Michigan State, 27.
ACC- Virginia Tech vs. Clemson
The reason for the fade of Clemson the last four games has been turnovers. After an 8-0 start and looking dominant in the conference the Tigers have lost three of the last four. Tajih Boyd needs to find his stroke and Andre Ellington and Sammy Watkins must recover from injuries. Virginia Tech has been called overrated at slot five but they looked amazing against Virginia. Logan Thomas has the smarts and skills and has a great back behind him in David Wilson. Can both defenses by respectable? However plays better on "D" will end up winning. And I think it will be Clemson. Yup, they're back. Clemson, 31 Virginia Tech, 28
Conference USA- Southern Mississippi vs. Houston
Would anyone choose this one over the ACC or Big Ten? I think maybe you should consider watching this one as two dangerous squads meet up. Houston is sixth and currently undefeated led by prolific quarterback Case Keennum. Though if you can slow down Keenum you can easily handle the Cougars. Though that is better said then done. Southern Miss doesn't have a slouch of their own with Austin Davis. Both defenses aren't very strong and need to show up. Keenum's passing game is just too much for the Golden Eagles as Houston clinches Houston, 42 Southern Mississippi, 35
SEC- LSU vs. Georgia
No team has been better then the Tigers this year but Georgia has won 10 straight after starting off 0-2. The Tigers have just as good of an offense as their scary good defense. Jarrett Lee is efficient and Jordan Jefferson is a playmaker at quarterback. The backfield is still their strength though headed by Spencer Ware and Michael Ford both who are powerful. Georgia has got a good quarterback with Aaron Murray but how will he be able to perform facing one of the best secondaries in the nation? Isaiah Crowell is a dangerous freshman that leads the steady Bulldogs ground game. But if the Bulldogs are to pull off the upset they need to stop LSU's deadly defensive line which provides a constant pass rush. LSU, 27 Georgia, 21
Pac 12- Oregon vs. UCLA
I bet the Pac 12 their first championship game included USC not UCLA. Rick Neuheisel prepares for what will be likely his last game unless he coaches a bowl game. Oregon's speedy offense is headed by Heisman canidate LaMichael James and effective Kenjon Barner. Darron Thomas has been strong this year passing for 27 touchdowns and just five interceptions. UCLA meanwhile has an improving quarterback Kevin Prince and back Johnathan Franklin running all around. Oregon though has an underrated secondary that I really like with guys like smart John Boyett and speedy Cliff Harris who will also be a factor on special teams. Though the Bruins defense is too weak which makes this one a pretty much forgone conclusion. Oregon, 38 UCLA, 24
