GRIDIRON GURUS: WEEK 18

in Predictions

PUTTING IT ON THE LINE: With the Texas high school football state champions crowned, focus turns to NCAA college football bowl games, as well as the Cowboys making a run for the NFL playoffs

(FINAL SCORE UPDATE: 11:55 p.m., Wednesday, December 29, 2021)

After crowning the 2021 Texas high school football state champions last week at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium, as well as the NCAA Division II and Division III national champs, the football world turns its attention to the slate of NCAA FBS Bowl games, along with the NFL playoff races.

THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus pick’ems panel continues to pick their favorites in the unpredictable bowl games, while attempting to solve the puzzle of which NFL team will win on any given Sunday.

Throughout the rest of the 2021 football season, THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus pick’ems panel will test their luck picking all of the FBS Bowl games, as well as NFL playoffs on the road to Super Bowl LVI Feb. 7 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California.

Joining THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus pick’ems panel this season will be Toney Rogers, a local business owner in the Heart of Texas, while Don Nicholas, Field Representative for U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25), Meridian Yellowjacket football head coach Wade Morton and The Sports Buzz’ Brett Voss return from last year.

After making an impressive eight-week run to establish a solid foothold on the pick’ems runner-up spot, Don (18-12) took a beating picking the Texas state championship winners. On the other hand, Toney (17-13) was looking good after the state championship results came in, but stumbled with his bowl picks. Wade (19-11) posted a consistent showing all-around to claim the week’s runner-up spot, while Brett (21-9) came out on top for the third straight week.

Join us every Thursday throughout the 2021 football season as THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus pick their winners for a select group of the week’s high school games, your favorite college teams from the NCAA Div. I, Div. II and Div. III, as well as the state’s two NFL teams, the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.

Be sure to make your picks as well!
