Picking the Pac: College Wire staff makes Week 13 selections

Colorado is far from being at the top of the Pac-12 standings, but they writers that cover the Buffaloes seem to have a superior ability in picking winners in the conference.

Jack Carlough and Tony Cosolo are 1-2 in the Pick the Pac standings and unless more chaos occurs within the conference, Carlough is going to win this season. Having to cover that dumpster fire in Boulder, the BuffsWire staff deserves this.

There’s just one more week in the Pac-12 regular season and there are a few rivalry games on the slate, including the game formerly known as the Civil War. Matt Zemek picked the Beavers to win this game before the season started, so did he stick with the pick, or did he see the light and select the Ducks?

An Oregon victory would match up two of the three College Wire Pac-12 sites against each other in Las Vegas. We don’t know if Sin City is ready for that, but let’s hope to find out.
