Stanford Steve and The Bear: Week 16 college football picks, bets, nuggets

College football is in full swing in 2020, and it's unlike any season we have had before. One thing is familiar, though: Stanford Steve Coughlin and Chris "The Bear" Fallica breaking down games as only they can, offering their top bets, nuggets and totals worth wagering on. How will the guys fare this week?

Here is your guide to Week 16 from the two college football analysts. (Games postponed or canceled because of COVID-19 have been removed.)


  • Stanford Steve (2-1-1 last week, 26-16-1 overall)

  • The Bear (0-2-1, 22-20-1)

The plays

No. 3 Clemson Tigers (-10.5, 60) vs. No. 2 Notre Dame Fighting Irish

(ACC championship at Charlotte, N.C.)

Stanford Steve: Clemson has gotten everything it has wanted since losing to the Irish earlier this year in overtime at South Bend without Trevor Lawrence. I still think the Irish will win the game. We will sprinkle a little on the money line, but we will take the points as the official play.
