Week 12 2019: #CFBpicks are graded; results are in!

Week 12 is in the books and the picks are graded.  Let’s see how everyone did.

Winners this week are Paul Finebaum (8-0 straight up), and an entire cast of characters who went 4-1 against the spread:  Dusty Dvoracek, Preston Johnson, Doug Kezirian and Brett McMurphy.  Congratulations to all of you but you will all have to share the celebratory muffin basket I’m sending.

Lee Corso went 11-3 on the week but missed out on his headgear pick going with Baylor over Oklahoma.  Celebrity guests Chip and Joanna Gaines had little to offer in the way of football analysis and it showed by their 4-8 record this week.  Super Dog picks went 3-1 against the spread with Kirk Herbstreit being the lone loser.  The Bear went 1-2 on his official board picks this week.

Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!
