This week's Purple & Gold football picks (11-21-15)




It's week #12 in the SoCon, the final week of conference games. It's also time to make this week's SoCon football picks.

The conference championship is set, so we're now playing for the spots 4-7, while a couple of teams play for a nice check......

 So let's get to picking winners...




The Citadel (7-3, 2-2 Away) at South Carolina (3-7, 2-2 Home)   12:00 pm  SECN
The Citadel travels to Columbia to meet the Gamecocks, hopeing for a win, but knowing a nice check awaits the end of the game. The Bulldogs are on the wrong end of a  38-17 score.

Western Carolina (6-4, 4-2 Southern) at VMI (2-8, 1-5 Southern) 1:30 pm ESPN3
The Cats travel to Lexington hoping for consecutive 5-2 finishes in the SoCon, and barring a complete breakdown, should finish with the 7-4 record overall.  Cats win 42-28.

Samford (5-5, 2-4 Southern) at Mercer (5-5, 2-4 Southern) 3:00 pm ESPN3
Another close game for the Bears as the Bulldogs visit Macon.  The resurging Dogs pick up a 28-24 win over the Bears.

Chattanooga (8-2, 4-1 Away) #14 Florida State (8-2, 6-0 Home)  3:00 pm ESPN3 
The Mocs travel to FSU, hoping for a good showing. But the Seminoles have other plans, as FSU win 42-7.

Furman (4-6, 2-4 Southern) at Wofford (4-6, 2-4 Southern)  3:30 pm  
In a game between two former powerhouses of the SoCon, The Paladins travel the short distance to Spartanburg to play the Terriers in a game that means little to the overall conference standings, as neither team can earn a winning overall or conference record regardless of the outcome of the game. Wofford wins, 24-14.
