ACC will top SEC this weekend
In another bold prediction, USC will throw all over Notre Dame
While I did correctly call for at least one of the unbeatens to lose last week in my bold predictions, I picked the wrong team. Despite having a 360-236 edge in yardage, Wisconsin could not ruin Ohio State's perfect season.
Here are this week's bold predictions.
1. The ACC will get the best of the SEC this week
The SEC is clearly the best conference in the nation, but I think it will take a hit this weekend at the hands of a conference that most of the country, including many of the polls, have disrespected so far: the ACC.
There are four games this weekend involving these two conferences going head-to-head, with three of them having major BCS implications. First, BCS No. 4 Florida travels to No. 10 Florida State. Despite the fact the Gators are ranked higher and have the strength of schedule edge, the Seminoles have huge advantages here and they start on the offensive side of the ball.
To read more from Phil Steele on why he thinks the ACC will get the better of the SEC in the leagues' head-to-head matchups, plus get the rest of his bold predictions for Week 13, you must be an ESPN Insider.
