College football Rivalry Week picks, predictions, schedule

Spread the Love!!


SI Staff

The end of the college football regular season is here—and so is Rivalry Week. Old tempers will flare in Week 14 as rivals square off with anything from a College Football Playoff spot to pride on the line. As as is typical, Ohio State-Michigan and the Iron Bowl are the marquee matchups, but Paul Bunyan’s Axe carries bonus stakes as well this year. From the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving night to Florida and Florida State’s Saturday night showdown, our writers lock in their picks.

Season-Long Standings

Pat Forde: 27–8 (77.1%)
Molly Geary: 110–44 (71.4%)
Max Meyer: 110–44 (71.4%)
Michael Shapiro: 110–44 (71.4%)
Laken Litman: 107–47 (69.4%)
Ross Dellenger: 104–50 (67.5%)
Lorenzo Arguello: 54–27 (66.7%)

Ole Miss at Mississippi State (Thursday, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN)


Lorenzo Arguello picks Mississippi State: What more could you want out of the Egg Bowl than the chance for one bad team—4-7 Ole Miss—to ruin the other not-so-great team’s—5-6 Mississippi State—shot at reaching a bowl game? Add in some lingering animosity from the brawl that broke out during last year’s game, and this should be an interesting battle to watch. Both teams have solid running games, which could very well lead to a big pass play or two making the ultimate difference, even though both air attacks leave a lot to be desired. Let’s say the Bulldogs win a very close one to, at least temporarily, save Joe Moorhead’s job.
