College football F/+ picks: Week 15

Andy Lyons

Football Outsiders picks and projections for Week 15 of the 2013 college football season.

Technically I've already shared the projections for this week, so I might as well hammer this post out as well, complete with last week's wretched numbers.

Just a horrendous week for picks last week ... and a great week for unexpected drama. I smell correlation!

I'm going ahead and including the Army-Navy projection below since I'm not really going to feel the need to write a one-game picks post next week. Will try to add in the spreads for both Army-Navy and UCF-SMU (once we know SMU's quarterback situation, I assume) as they come.
