I like almost any Big10 team at home against Iowa, remember week 1? They had to block FGs to pull it out against Northern Iowa. I for sure like Wisky in that one.

I still think Okie State is not half bad. I'll take Okie Light, just because its at home. I think that will be the difference.

I think they're legit if they can win this weekend, but it's the first and only test they've had thus far. OU is gonna be playing like a top team with Bradford back, too bad for them that they already lost those two. I still want them to knock off Texas and think they will, revenge for their only loss last season (even though Texas got snuffed on the NC too). Last years game between them was awesome, should be another good one!

I think Bama steamrolls through the SEC for the rest of the season and plays Florida for the SECCG. 'Bama has looked much more dominant than florida to me as well, and has been the strongest looking team so far.

VT@GT - call me a homer (my screenname), but I think VT steamrolls them like Miami. Ok, not steamroll, but I think they control and win it convincingly. This is the first I've seen VT have an "offense" in many years that's actually performing well with confidence, and I think the defense will be up for the challenge; Tyrod, Ryan Williams and the offense have been hot ever since that deep ball against Nebraska. GT's defense is full of holes all over, and VT just has to slow down their triple option. Beamer's got a different attitude and some extra fire this year at VT, I think this team is on a mission.

USC@ND - USC rolls pretty easily, I think ND is way overrated and just in the top 25 because of their name. They'll be brought down to earth again, and hopefully all this Clausen-heisman crap will stop.

Cinci @ USF - haven't really watched them much this year, but I know Pike has been putting up some nice stats at Cinci.



IT's sad because I think the real national championship this year is going to be the SEC title game. IF USC continues to improve and goes the rest of the year undefeated, I would enjoy watching them against Bama or Florida. BUt Texas is way overrated and I don't want to see them in the Rose Bowl

I'm looking at the Arkansas Florida matchup and i'm starting to get a funny upset feeling. I think the razerbacks could pull a big time upset this week.

Yeah, even though Florida hasn't looked as dominant, I know they can turn it on when needed; they have more than enough talent. Bama has looked like the strongest team so far to me, and I hope those two meet for the the SECCG again.

Texas has been pretty lackluster, and I hope they do start to fall back to earth. Oklahoma should be dangerous again now that Bradford is back behind center.

And USC, well, I hope they lose. I don't thinks if it's forgivable that they lost to Washington if they're a NC caliber team this year. They always drop that one game to a nothing team. They've got Oregon coming up in a few weeks, I think that's their next real test. Yes, I am slightly biased because USC is on VT's heels right now in the rankings as well, so there's a personal motive behind wanting them to lose as well.

I do have to say that this is the best VT team I have seen in a long time. If they win out they also deserve a shot at the title game.The USC loss to Washington looks really bad, but they had their backup quaterback in and no Taylor Mays. Then again there are no excuses, and USC having 3 turnovers inside the red zone during that game is a big reason why they lost. THe funny thing is the BCS polls might actually help USC this year, because of their schedule. USC does have a vicious road schedule this year. I wouldn't mind seeing a VT USC title game matchup.

Tulsa is a shell of thee team they had when Malzahn was running the offense. I don't think Boy-zee is all that great either, but the Broncos will run away with this one.

BSU 45
Tulsa 17
