We arrive at the penultimate week of the regular season with a tie for first place in our Rocky Top Talk 2011 group at Fun Office Pools. Last year's champ Grayhound is tied with jfarrar90, with nc2316 just one point behind and handful of others still well within range. There's only one game tonight, but there are a ton of games in the pool this week on Friday, so make sure your picks are locked in before you put yourself in a food coma later today.
Here's how our community is feeling this week:
- In what could be the last matchup between these two for a long time, 89% like Texas A&M at home over Texas tonight. Nothing would please me more than watching A&M say goodbye to the Longhorns and hello to the SEC with a win in their final meeting.
- Your five Black Friday matchups: 91% like LSU to keep things simple with a win over Arkansas, 83% like Arizona State to stay alive in the Pac 12 South with a win over Cal, 94% like Houston to stay undefeated at Tulsa, 94% like Nebraska at home over
ColoradoIowa, and 97% like West Virginia in the Backyard Brawl.
- It gets much tighter on Saturday: 55% like South Carolina at home over Clemson, and 53% like Vanderbilt to become bowl eligible at Wake Forest. 78% take Georgia at Georgia Tech, while 80% take Florida State at The Swamp.
- Elsewhere, 89% take Alabama in the Iron Bowl, 97% take Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl, and 92% take Tennessee to make it 27 straight over Kentucky. 92%, that's all? We clearly have some UK fans in our midst.
