Forecaster Frank's College Six Picks
Memphis 45 Central Florida 42
The American Athletic Championship Game sees a spot for a New Year's Six Bowl on the line, as the winner will certainly be the highest ranked team from a non-power five conference. When these teams met earlier in the season, it was all UCF, as the Knights won 40-13 in Orlando. It was the Tigers only loss on the season. Central Florida comes into the game unbeaten, but there have been distractions as coach Scott Frost is campaigning for the job at Nebraska, that distraction that will open the door for Memphis who comes in red hot to get the upset win.

Oklahoma 37 TCU 17
Oklahoma may be playing its best football as it hits the Big XII Championship Game, scoring 100 points in their last two games. When the Sooners met the Horned Frogs three weeks ago, Oklahoma delivered a 38-20 win in Norman. Baker Mayfield has been tremendous late in the season, making his case for the Hesiman Trophy. Look for the Sooners to punch their ticket to the FBS Playoffs with another takedown of TCU at AT&T Stadium.
Georgia 27 Auburn 24
Auburn has been a tornado, twice knocking off unbeaten #1 ranked teams, including Georgia three weeks ago. After their win over Alabama, the Tigers are in position to reach the FBS Playoffs. Georgia's loss to Auburn was their only hiccup in an otherwise dominant season. It is hard to imagine the Bulldogs playing as poorly as they did the first time they came up against Auburn. Hoping to return to Atlanta again for the championship game, Georgia gets revenge in the SEC Championship Game to launch themselves into the FBS Playoffs by a field goal.
Boise State 38 Fresno State 27
These teams are meeting for the second week in a row, this time with the Mountain West Conference Championship on the line. Last week it was all Fresno in California, as Boise State knowing there would be a rematch seemed to play the game close to the vest. This week, with the game on the blue turf in Boise, look for the Broncos to let it fly as they win the Mountain West title game once again.
Clemson 41 Miami 13
The Hurricanes dreams of an unbeaten season came to a stunning end last week, as they were beaten by Pittsburgh, a team that was having a down season. Miami even in most of their wins struggled at times. While wins against Virginia Tech and Notre Dame lifted them to #2, they were never as good as their record. Clemson meanwhile after a stunning loss in Syracuse has bounced back and are ending the season on a nice surge that has taken the defending National Champions back to number one. Look for that to continue as Clemson rolls to the FBS Playoffs.
Ohio State 17 Wisconsin 13
Wisconsin must feel like Rodney Dangerfield, as they have only reached a #3 ranking, despite being the only unbeaten team from a power conference. However, looking at their schedule it is easy to see why the Badgers have not advanced as have only played two ranked teams and none in the top ten. Ohio State comes in playing their best football, and while J.T. Barrett's health is a question mark, they will expose Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, the only problem for Ohio State is they may need extra help to get to FBS Playoffs with Alabama ahead on the depth chart.
