Week 14 - Which College Players Are Future Vikings 2022

Conference Championships!

It’s Championship week!

Week 13 was pretty good with lots of close games and a couple of upsets. Michigan beating Ohio State was kind of a surprise but they played tough. I think Ohio State really misses Jaxon Smith-Njigba. USC was able to get by Notre Dame. Oregon State upset Oregon to knock them out of the PAC 12 Championship game and letting Utah in the big game. Texas A&M played their game of the year and knocked off LSU which could allow USC or Ohio State into the playoffs. South Carolina continued their really good run by knocking off Clemson and eliminating from any hopes of the playoffs. NC State upset North Carolina and Kentucky upset Louisville.

The conference championship games for this week could be very tight. I think USC vs Utah, TCU vs Kansas State, Clemson vs North Carolina, and UCF vs Tulane all could come down to the wire. If Utah and Kansas State win then I guess it would be an upset but Utah already beat USC. I would love to see Georgia and Michigan both lose but it likely will not affect this year’s playoffs. They cannot start the expanded playoffs soon enough for me because it is quite clear that any given Saturday any top 10 team can beat another top 10 team.

You may be thinking why would the team add yet another CB. Well, Peterson is playing well but Sullivan is not. Dantzler seemingly gets dinged up every year and Booth has not played much and is out already. Evans is out with a concussion too. I think they cannot have enough corners.

The rest are just picks I like and probably go higher.

Enjoy!
