College Football Predictions

I went through and predicted the outcome of every single FBS game for the 2011 season. And while seeing Baylor defeating TCU minutes before posting this made me want to rip up my magazine and give up before the first Saturday of the season, I figured too much work had been done already. Below are the conference rankings and win/loss record that I predict for each team. I did not predict the Conference Championship games. However, I do believe that at the end of the season, Oregon will be playing Florida State for the National Championship. The team records after a few other predictions:
