Week 13 football picks

Each week during the football season, Sports Editor Mark Podolski will pick NFL, college,and high school games.

A 2-3 week puts the season record at 28-31-1, so let's try to get back to .500.


D-V state final, Kirtland vs. Coldwater, Saturday: Last year, I predicted the Hornets to win by the exact score (28-7) in the state final. Let's go for two in a row. PICK: Kirtland, 31-21


MAC championship game, Kent State (6.5) vs. Northern Illinois, Friday: The Flashes need this win if they have any hopes of making an improbable push to a BCS bowl game. If Kent can get its running game rolling, look out. PICK: Kent, 34-31

SEC championship game, Alabama vs. Georiga (+7.5), Saturday: Alabama has injury issues, and Georgia seems to be flying under the radar. Upset alert for the Crimson Tide. PICK: Georgia, 21-17 


Browns (+1.5) at Raiders, Saturday: The Raiders have been bad, just like the Browns, but Oakland did beat the visiting Steelers earlier in the season. Cleveland always seems to struggle out west. PICK: Raiders, 27-23

Giants (+2.5) at Redskins, Monday: It's old (Eli Manning) vs. the new (Robert Griffin III), but the Giants always seem to kick into another gear late in the season. PICK: Giants, 34-27
