A potential preview of the Pac-12 Championship is on tap this Saturday, as Washington State and Colorado meet in Boulder for one of the top matchups in Week 11. With two weeks remaining until the Pac-12 Championship, there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding both divisions in the Pac-12. Colorado (6-1) holds a slight edge over USC (5-2) and Utah (5-2) in the South.
The Week 12 edition of college football’s picks against the spread features predictions for some of Saturday’s biggest games, including Colorado-Washington State, Oklahoma-West Virginia, TCU-Oklahoma State and LSU-Florida.

Week 11 provided its share of upsets for the 2016 college football season. Clemson, Michigan and Washington were knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten, while Auburn and Texas A&M – two of the selection committee’s top-10 teams – were also defeated in SEC play last Saturday.

Oh, what a fine mess we have on our hands — and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm the guy who likes to pull up a tattered old lawn chair, light a cheap cigar, drink bottom-shelf whiskey straight out of a plastic bottle and watch the world burn. I love when what people thought were master plans fail. The chaos excites me.
As we approach Thanksgiving and the end of the college football regular season, it’s clear that winter is not just literally coming — it’s also metaphorically approaching for the four-team College Football Playoff system with more doom in the air than “Game of Thrones.”
