USC at Oregon State – The Trojans continue to impress since the firing of Lane Kiffin winning three of four games. USC is playing like I expected them to when I predicted an 8-1 conference record and winning the Pac12 South. I guess I did not factor enough of the Lane Kiffin influence. This loss for the Beavers hurt, as any remote chance of winning the North evaporated.
Georgia vs Florida – My Gators could not shake a dismal start and fall 23-20 to the rival Bulldogs. I am not really sure that either team walks away from this game feeling good, but a W is a W. Amid a very chippy game featuring many personal fouls of the offsetting variety, Todd Gurley was the difference. Georgia ran out the clock with … Read More »

USC at Oregon State – A rare Friday night match up of not horrible teams. This game should be entertaining and fun to watch. There is nothing of immediate importance in this game but neither team is out of the race in their respective division, so this game is important to both sides. USC is playing a lot better since the firing of Lane Kiffin.
Georgia vs Florida – The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Soda Party kicks off at 3:30. Both teams are reeling and injured. The Bulldogs and Gators both enter 3-2 in the SEC with slim hopes of winning the SEC East. Loser is clearly out. Winner needs help.
Michigan at Michigan State – These two teams are atop one of the Big10 divisions and the winner of this game has … Read More »

Wake Forest at Miami – Miami ekes out another win to remain unbeaten. Next week…Florida State. One team will emerge with their first loss. I know where my money would be.
Connecticut @ Central Florida – Could UConn be the worst team in the country? It is certainly possible as they got spanked by UCF. They do have some opportunities on the schedule to get a win but a winless Huskie team is certainly possible.
Nebraska at Minnesota – The Golden Gophers get the upset and hand the Cornhuskers its second loss of the year, but this one hurts a lot more as it is a conference loss for Nebraska. This ended a 16 game streak the Huskers had on the Gophers who are now bowl eligible.
Western Michigan at Massachusetts – Someone had to win … Read More »

North Carolina at South Carolina – I think everybody got what they expected in this game, at least on a team level. SC was never in jeopardy of losing, but did not quite dominate. The interesting note on this game was the reaction to the play of Jadeveon Clowney. I will reserve judgment until next week. He has earned a pass from me on this one. Let’s see how he plays against Georgia.
Ole Miss at Vanderbilt – This was every bit the game that I thought it would be. This back and forth game kept me awake and riveted. This game could springboard Ole Miss into a very successful season and the top recruiting classes they have brought in, could be as advertised. But it is only one … Read More »
