It's Awards Week in college football. Most of the major awards were handed out on ESPN but the big one remains for tonight. But before we announce RG3 as our Heisman vote recipient, WHOOPS, let's take a quick moment to pick the rest of the quarterfinals of the FCS Playoffs. In last night's showdown the Northern Iowa Panthers visited the Montana Grizzlies and apparently forgot how to tackle. The co-Big Sky Champions hammered the co-Missouri Valley kings as Grizzly QB Jordan Johnson pretty much dominated the game. It was brutal for us UNI alum. But a great season none the less for the Panthers.
Here's our picks for the rest of the FCS Playoffs...
North Dakota St -9.5
Lehigh and North Dakota St enter the game with 11-1 records. Lehigh's All-American wideout Ryan Spadola has being suspended for the game for retweeting an offensive message. Spadola had 96 catches, 1600 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns. That's too much to overcome so we'll take the fourth-ranked Bison to cover.
Maine takes on Southern Conference Champion Georgia Southern. Don't now much about either team other than Georgia Southern hung around with 'Bama for a bit a few weeks ago. Dj Gallo said the CAA is the SEC of the Football Championship Subdivision so we'll take the Black Bears and the points.
Sam Houston St -8
Top seeded and undeafeated on the season, Sam Houston St hosts Montana St. We'll take the top-ranked team at home. We gotta cut this short as they're kicking off now.
And finally our vote from Heisman, if we actually had a vote, goes to Robert Griffen III. He's been the most exciting of the finalists all season long and has turned Baylor around the past two seasons. RG3! RG3!
Enjoy the weekends everyone and drink a couple of your frosty beverages. We'll take some Black-n-Blues.
