Texas vs. West Virginia: This WVU burning couch grill is real, and it is spectacular. The Texas defense has not lived up to expectations, but they have far more talent than West Virginia. There are many reasons to love Geno Smith, though we suspect West Virginia won’t show the same command on the road. A Longhorn win in a huge spot here would expunge much of the remaining doubt.
Georgia vs. South Carolina: Both enter the game undefeated. The loser will have a tough time winning the SEC East. This may be the most important home game in South Carolina history. More extensive preview here. Spurrier has been creating headlines with his Ron Morris Feud. A woman with a goatee was desperate to score some Cocks gear. Two question marks heading into this: Georgia’s offensive line and which Georgia defense will show up. We like the Gamecocks.
Nebraska at Ohio State: The two best situated Big Ten teams. They will play football, as Cardale Jones ain’t come to play school. Ohio State won’t bow to the conference’s best interest. Urban Meyer did not come to make friends. This would be a huge win for Nebraska, still looking to assert themselves in a new conference. It would be a huge win for Bo Pelini, who needs to take a step forward from 9-4.
Catholics vs. Convicts: Two top ten matchups coincide with Notre Dame’s neutral site night game. The Irish had to do something to draw attention to themselves. Ugliest uniforms of all-time? A debate. Ugliest Notre Dame uniforms of all-time? No question. Tommy Rees will start, after Everett Golson was suspended for a team rules violation. Miami has the athleticism to challenge the Irish secondary. Can they play defense or protect Stephen Morris long enough to throw?
UCLA vs. Cal: The Bruins (-2.5) was the public pick of the week. This t-shirt encapsulates why we were unwilling to roll with Jeff Tedford.
