CFB Championship Week - Quick Hit Picks

It's the last college football Saturday and some conference Championships are on the line.  Let's make one last go-round before the bowl season starts.

Southern Mississippi at Houston (-13.5, 73.5): This will be a popular pick, but the CUSA championship will no doubt be a shootout.  These teams both know how to score points and their defenses have given up a decent amount of points to lesser offenses. Case Keenum is on a BCS mission.
The Pick: Over 73.5

Iowa State at Kansas St (-10.5, 50.5): The Wildcats are looking to make their case for a BCS bowl bid.  That extra motivation and a home crowd should fuel them to a big W.
The Pick: Kansas State -10.5

LSU vs. Georgia (+13, 46.5): Les Miles wants this SEC championship.  No Tiger will be looking past the Bulldogs, despite their lock on a BCS Championship game bid.  The past two have been SEC West blowouts and I expect this one to be the same.
The Pick: LSU -13

Virginia Tech vs Clemson (+6.5, 54): Bud Foster's Hokie D will lock up Boyd and co. with the BCS berth on the line.  Tech will get their fair share of TDs against the struggling Tigers, but it's not gonna be a track meet.
The Pick: Under 54
