College Football Conference Championship Weekend Picks 

It’s College Football’s Conference Championship Weekend,  and while there should be no issues with the top four teams in this week’s College Football Playoff Rankings, at least two of them could easily be knocked out with a loss this weekend.

Unfortunately, he’s just too old for this list. Besides, the fact that…
