PODCAST: Weekend Picks Panel -- Week 13 Against The Spread

Will UCLA coach Jim Mora use the full playbook against Stanford with a possible Pac-12 rematch on the horizon. (US Presswire)

The Weekend Picks Panel has assembled and, after bloody debate, we can present a podcast below with your best guesses locks of the week. Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) and Jerry Hinnen (@JerryHinnen) join me again to discuss all of the Top 25 action from the oddsmakers' angle, giving you at least one good reason and pick for each game.

This Thanksgiving edition of the picks panel kicks off with another edition of "Five for Fighting," as Tom and Jerry pick up where they left off in the season-ending competition. Jerry won Week 12, cutting Tom's lead in the series to 6-4. This week's slate kicks off with one of the most interesting games of the weekend: Stanford Cardinal at UCLA Bruins . The Bruins have a Pac-12 title game bid sealed, but a win over the Cardinal could set up a Pac-12 title game against Oregon Ducks in Eugene. A win for Stanford would clinch the Pac-12 North and set up a rematch of the very same game for the conference title. Tune in to hear what Jerry thinks Jim Mora's play calling will look like, considering the stakes at hand for both teams.

We move on to debate some of the most enticing in-state rivalry games, and Nebraska Cornhuskers 's potential division-clinching battle with Iowa Hawkeyes . The Lightning Round delivers your usual quick-hits picks explanation, courtesy of my distinguished guests.
