It’s Week 14, and Week 14 has a few special aspects, so let’s cover those:

  • Week 14 includes the Army-Navy game on December 8. So if you want to bet that game - which doesn’t have a line yet - you’ll need to save some of your bankroll. It’s not reset after the Saturday games.
  • There are only three AAC games this week: Army-Navy, East Carolina-North Carolina State, and Memphis-UCF. So to meet the “1 AAC game” requirement, you have to play one of those three.
  • Please note which conference championship games are played at neutral sites, and which aren’t. If a location is given on the Make Picks page, it’s a neutral site. Otherwise, the bottom team is the home team.
  • Some conference championship games are rematches. The first round of results were: Washington 21, Utah 7; Central Florida 31, Memphis 30; Texas 48, Oklahoma 45; Appalachian State 27, Louisiana-Lafayette 17; Boise State 24, Fresno State 17; Middle Tennessee 27, UAB 3. Ohio State-Northwestern, Alabama-Georgia, Clemson-Pittsburgh, and Buffalo-Northern Illinois are not rematches.
  • All improvised games have lines. These include FCS teams Norfolk State (at Liberty) and Drake (at Iowa State). Usually FCS vs FBS games get lines very late, if at all, so let your inner degenerate find an angle on these.
  • Any bets made on California-Stanford two weeks ago are no longer in effect. You must re-bet if you wish to play. This is the house rule for games that are moved to a different week.
  • The following players do not have to play Week 14, as they have one or more bye weeks remaining to use: andrewpina, anthonyvito, carlzee, Defdans, dsidwell31, E-dogg42, ElliotMoore, GaryStephen, GibbsAK, gym399, HerdCountry941, jjlovecub, jrjs, ULhothot. Please note that it is permissible to use a byeweek on a week where you underbet. This means, you can play some games without having to fulfill the 3 bets/1 AAC bet/5% or $50 requirements.

That’s everything I can think of to tell you, so onto the picks. As of about 7:45 AM Eastern time on Friday:
