What's in store for this week in college football?

"Stanford Steve" Coughlin and Chris "The Bear" Fallica break down Week 12 of the season as only they can, offering their top bets, nuggets, games to stay away from and a special money-line underdog parlay to jump on.

With the season in full swing, the guys are ready to continue their prognostications. Here we go with Week 12 picks.


The plays

Stanford Steve (2-3 last week, 29-25-2 overall)

The Bear (5-3 last week, 27-23-1 overall)


Buffalo Bulls (-6, 56) at Kent State Golden Flashes

The Bear: I don't really understand the line move from Buffalo -1 to -6, so I will take the points with the home 'dog here. Sure, the Bulls have covered in four straight, but Kent State has blown out a bad team at home (Bowling Green), beat a good FCS team (Kennesaw State) and was actually favored at home against the team that could be the best in the MAC (Miami Ohio). All three of the Golden Flashes' MAC losses have been one-score affairs, and our numbers have Buffalo by about two. I'll go against the line move here and grab the six.

Pick:
