We're going simple this week. We've been off a week due to technical difficulties and now we just need to keep it simple this week. Every game involving the top 10 in the BCS will be discussed and the importance of each.
1) Texas at 7) Texas Tech- Can Mike Leach tell the world he can win a big game. TT is 8-0 but have played pretty much nobody. Texas is playing their 4th top 10 team in as many weeks and is 3-0 so far. If Tech wins this, they are in the national title hunt with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State still to play. Expect a lot of points and no one should go to sleep in this one.
Arkansas State at 2) Alabama- This is not one that Alabama can overlook. Arkansas State is good. YES!! I said it! The Red Wolves are good. They beat a Texas A&M team, albeit awful, but no one at the time even expected the former Indians to even be on the same field. The 12th man got scared in that one, but don't expect Sabanation to let another Louisiana-Monroe happen to them. Better team, should be better results.
3) Penn State has a tough matchup with Idle this week.
Nebraska at 4) Oklahoma- This used to be for all the marbles in the Big 8. This USED to be a matchup the entire world waited for. This was the Game of the Year every year and even the Game of the Century one year. This game is not even thought about on the national radar anymore. This game is played two years on, two years off. A rematch in the Big 12 Championship game is not expected. This game isn't expected to be much either.
Washington at 5) USC- Is Washington this year's Stanford?? NO!!!
8) Florida vs. 6) Georgia at Jacksonville, FL- This will be the game of the year. The Cocktail Party will be the biggest one in a while. Historically Florida has been better in this series, but will history continue to side with them or will it be UGA's first 2 game win streak in this series in a long while?
Iowa State at 9) Oklahoma State- Why is this on ABC in some markets??
10) Utah at New Mexico- If Utah continues to win, they could bust the BCS and with a few losses to the top teams, up close enough to maybe get into that #2 spot?? I think not, but still a great team and a great story.
