Week 14 2017: #CFB Picks for Championship Week from Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica!

Here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for.  The picks from television superstar and the top dog at College Gameday, Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica.  He put out picks on their weekly podcast and some of it was pretty vague.  I don’t know if the Ohio State pick was official because he prefaced it with “if I had to pick it”.  I don’t know if the TCU pick is official, but he was in strong agreement with Stanford Steve.  Listen to the podcast if you really need an answer on it.  I will update Saturday morning with Bear’s Bank as always.  Enjoy.

Auburn-2.5 vs Georgia
Clemson vs Miami FL under 46.5
UL-Monroe+27 vs FSU
TCU+7 vs OU (he seemed to agree with Stanford Steve’s pick)
Ohio St-6.5 vs Wisconsin (if he had to pick it)
