College football: Joe vs. the Pro, Week 12

Few people outside of Boca Raton have noticed, but Florida Atlantic has made steady progress throughout the season. First, coach Carl Pelini has instilled some of his Rust Belt toughness into the Owls and, as the 2012 season nears its finish for FAU, the program appears to be moving in the right direction after that regrettable 1-11 record in the final season of the Howard Schnellenberger Era. The same team that began the season with a 7-3 victory against Wagner has won two of its past three games and gave Navy a scare in Annapolis, Md. Against the spread, FAU has covered in eight consecutive weeks. Joe Goodman, The Miami Herald’s national college football columnist, is a lot like FAU in terms of picking games this season. He started slowly but has built some positive momentum. Last week, Joe took a slight step backwards, going 4-4 straight up and 3-4-1 against the spread, but, overall, Joe is 63-25 straight up and 43-39-1 against the spread. The Pro, Lee Sterling of ParamountSports.com, went 5-3 straight up last week and 3-4-1 against the spread. For the season, the Pro is a stellar 65-23 straight up and 46-36-1 against the spread.
