Week 7 Preview
Posted: October 10, 2013
Rutgers at Louisville – This is the first game of the back to back gauntlet that will define the Cardinals season. This week Rutgers, next week UCF. These are the toughest games on the Cards schedule. And they are 19 point favorites. Nice schedule if you can get it.
Oregon at Washington – The Huskies are coming off a close loss to Stanford. Oregon is Oregon. I am a believer in the Huskies and this game is at home so that helps. But they are not in the Ducks class yet. But they are heading up, so I do not expect the Ducks to be up by 50 at the half as is the norm. But the Huskies do not have the horses to win this game.
Missouri at Georgia – The Tigers are 5-0 against teams that you can probably not tell me the nickname of. The next three games…Georgia, Florida, South Carolina. I guess we are going to find out what they are. We know who Georgia is but I do not know what happened last week. Even with injuries that should not have happened, I expect the Dogs to return to normal this weekend.
Texas A&M at Ole Miss – The Rebels need to show up strong in this one. After starting 3-0 including a win at Texas, they have lost 2 straight to Alabama (understandable) and Auburn. They now have Texas A&M and LSU back to back and are looking at 3-4. The Aggies are just putting up points in bunches with the 4th highest scoring offense. The Rebels are going to have to score a lot.
Florida at LSU – A second match-up of ranked teams in the SEC. As a Gator fan I hope its a great game because if its a blowout I don’t like our chances. LSU is doing it with offense this year. The Gators with defense.
South Carolina at Arkansas – The Clowney saga continues. Will it be a big enough distraction for the Hogs to win this? The Gamecocks have been squeaking by and sooner or later it may catch up with them.
Northwestern at Wisconsin – The Cats almost pulled off the upset last week against the Buckeyes. Wisconsin has done nothing special thus far. Vegas has the Badgers as a 10 point favorite. Smells fishy?
South Florida at Connecticut – The teams are a combined 1-8 with the sole win being a Bulls win against Cincinnati. Well one team is going to be very happy and should party like its 1999. Can games end in a tie again?
