Week 12 2018: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

The week 12 college football grades are in.  Let’s examine.

Winners this week include Andrea Adelson (9-2), Lou Holtz (8-2), Phil Steele (12-3 straight up, 13-6 ATS), Kirk Herbstreit (11-4), Rick Neuheisel (7-3), Rufus Peabody (4-1 ATS), and Scott Spreitzer (4-1 ATS).  However, after splitting a weekly win last week, @GamedayJen sits atop the throne going 13-3 on picks this week.  That’s two in a row and three overall this season, so I expect her to get called up to ESPN any day.

Losers this week include Scott Van Pelt (3-5 ATS), Dan Katz (4-6 ATS), Stanford Steve (2-3 ATS), and Brett McMurphy (3-4 ATS).  However this week’s loss definitely goes to Bruce Feldman at 5-6 straight up; 3-7 ATS.

Lee Corso posted a big win at 12-3, including a win with this headgear pick UCF over Cincinnati.  Special guest celebrity Maury Povich had a nice winning week at 10-4.  The Bear had a losing week 3-4 ATS, but Bear’s Bank went 2-1 on the week.  Everyone else was somewhere in between to check out the results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
