Twitter Picks for College Football Week 12

I found the following paragraph from a post from 2013 picking college football games, and it applies this week too, after last week I hit some picks while others didn’t make me look exceptionally bright.

“We learned last week that this weekly post of mine, or others like it, are just simple predictions that can be wrong in a heartbeat.  But, in the spirit of the game, and in preparation for another big week of college football, those like me who think they can predict the future continue.  That being said, here are my picks for Week 9.”
