2017 NCAA FOOTBALL – WEEK 12 BIG GAMES

AWAY QUICK THOUGHTS HOME
Computer Hope This will be a great test for Wisconsin & if the Badgers pass I think they finally break into the top-4 of the college football playoff rankings. Michigan’s rush defense ranks 9th in the nation so Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor will be tested as will the O-line. Michigan’s rushing game can be utterly dominating at times as well so the Badgers defense will get a test as well. Don’t forget Michigan either. The Big 10 East is unwinnable but they can finish 11-2! Computer Hope
Computer Hope The road loss to Miami-FL was brutal, but Notre Dame needs to keep their eye on the prize. Maybe Miami-FL is the best team in the nation? Either way a couple of thoughts here for the Irish. The first is that Navy is always a brutally difficult game because of their style of play. The Irish can’t overlook them. The 2nd thought is that ND should finish 10-2 & get a great New Year’s 6 Bowl. That opportunity probably evaporates with a loss to Navy. ND can finish 11-2! Computer Hope
Computer Hope Florida Atlantic isn’t going to lose to Charlotte in their season finale so this game doesn’t decide the winner of the CUSA-East, but how amazing is it to have Lane Kiffin coaching FAU in his first season & Butch Davis coaching FIU in his first season!? No matter what comes with either of these guys, both guys are OUTSTANDING head coaches who can recruit & are in fertile recruiting beds. I don’t know how long Kiffin stays at FAU but this rivalry could be epic! Computer Hope
Computer Hope I love this game because the Trojans usually wear the maroon jerseys while the Bruins where the light blue, giving the game a stunning visual beauty. This game isn’t without importance. UCLA needs a win here to become bowl eligible & if they lose they are in a must win situation next week against Cal. Jim Mora is already on the hot seat & a blow out loss to a cross town rival would look awful. For the Trojans, they are hoping for chaos among playoff teams! Computer Hope
Computer Hope Temple is not a particularly great team, but the Owls play hard & they’ll be playing at home. This game isn’t a slam dunk for UCF who is looking to improve to 10-0. What makes this game especially important is that UCF plays South Florida that following week which won’t be easy & a win there puts them in the AAC Championship game against Memphis, which will be just as tough. If UCF gets to 12-0 they’ll have earned their right to a New Year’s 6 bowl. Computer Hope
Computer Hope Both teams come into this game 4-6 meaning the loser won’t be bowl eligible. That’s a tough pill to swallow for both teams. The Hoosiers took a pretty big leap firing Kevin Wilson after Wilson led the Hoosiers to back-to-back bowls for the first time since 1990-1991! Tom Allen has done a good job with Indiana, but IU hasn’t broken through this season. Chris Ash took over a controversial program after Kyle Flood was dismissed. A bowl would be huge for him. Computer Hope
Computer Hope Normally this game wouldn’t move the meter at all, but UAB is 7-3 while the Gators are floundering at 3-6. A loss for the Gators ruins their bowl chances & let’s face it, Florida interim HC Randy Shannon is going to do everything in his power to fumble this one up. UAB hasn’t had a football team for 2 years. Now they are back & can you imagine them beating Florida in Gainesville in their first year back!!!??? Wow Florida has fallen off the map in quick fashion. Computer Hope
Computer Hope This is kind of a neat game as Army is 8-2 & North Texas is 7-3 so both teams have been successful this season. The reason why this game rates this week is that there isn’t much going on in college football, but also because Army’s rushing attack is a sight to behold. Over the last two games, Army has beaten both Air Force & Duke by the combined score of 42-16. In those 2 games, Army has throw exactly ONE pass! Sit back & watch authentic football! Computer Hope
Computer Hope This should be a really cool game featuring a couple of really good QBs in Missouri’s Drew Lock and Vanderbilt’s Kyle Schumer. Lock has already thrown for over 3,000 yards this season with 35TD to 10INT! Schumer has thrown for almost 2200 yards with 21TD to 7INT. A win for Missouri would give the Tigers bowl eligibility while knocking Vandy from bowl considerations. Missouri HC Barry Odom has done a fantastic job with Mizzou in a rebuild. Computer Hope
Computer Hope Not a prolific game considering both Middle Tennessee & Western Kentucky are 5-5, but it does mean the winner walks away with bowl eligibility. I think this game will be interesting because you’ll get to see WKU QB Mike White go up against MTSU QB Brent Stockstill. Both guys can absolutely sling the football & both should be NFL Draft picks at some point. It’s been a disappointing season for both squads, but this game should be a fun one for the fans.
