MIKEDROPSPORTS college football coverage
I went through all 838 games of the 2019 college football season, picking winners to project the record of all 130 FBS teams.
Conference Championship Game – Cincinnati over Houston
This would snap a streak of two straight years of UCF vs Memphis. By beating UCF in the regular season, Cincinnati wins the tie breaker (both 7-1). Beating UCF would also snap a streak of 16 consecutive wins in AAC play for UCF.
Houston is the only team I have beating Cincinnati in conference play, and the Cougars, led by Dana Holgorsen and D’Eriq King, who combined for 50 TDs last season, will get to the AAC title game for the first time since 2015.
