My two are Texas Tech vs. Iowa State and Texas vs. Oklahoma. Tech really needs to win this week after their disappointing loss to Texas and the Red River Rivalry is always a good game. I'll also be checking out the Florida vs. Alabama game, that should be a good one.

Stanford at Oregon is going to be a war!

If the Ducks come to play and are truly as good as they look on paper, this could get ugly. If Oregon runs roughshod over Stanford, Oregon will be a legit contender for a NC birth. With that said, the Ducks have some major issues they have better dealt with this week. The Oline looks like they can't pass block very well. Stanford is going to load the box to stop the run. So, we will counter two, possibly three ways: First, Darron Thomas will pull the ball out and run. If Stanford continues to sell themselves out and Thomas runs, he will have a field day against a slower defense. Second, Thomas will throw for over 250-300+. Third, we could unveil our much hyped TAZR position. This is a running back, receiver hybrid. We could also see James, Barner and our TAZR, Huff (remember that name) on the field all at once. If that happens, my god there will be a lot of speed out there. No way does Stanford stop that. All three will not happen and I hope at least one of those occurs. If Stanford stops the run and we cannot pass, we are doomed.

However, I think this will be an extremely difficult game. It will take a near flawless game as I think Stanford is one of the best teams in the nation. Luck is a monster and will go very high in the NFL draft when his time comes. I'm ready to watch this thing.

Go Ducks

I will just be watching them all. I like to get in at least 12 hours of watching college football every Saturday. Sometimes it gets close to 15 hours, then comes SportsCenter for the highlights.

Tennessee at LSU.

The Vols are possibly the youngest and most inexperienced team in the country, but we have the talent to play with anyone. That was evident a few weeks ago when we came out and dominated Oregon on both sides of the ball for a quarter and a half. However, we don't have the depth right now to finish games against good teams. That was evident in the second half of the Oregon game when we ran out of gas and the Ducks ran all over us.

As frustrating as it is to be a Vol fan right now, I am feeling very good about Derek Dooley and the direction in which he is moving the program. This team will be a force in a couple years.

With all that said, I like the matchup against LSU this weekend. I think our young, talented defense will give LSU's shaky offense fits, even at their place. For us to pull out the win, however, our running game has to come out of hiding so our offense can keep our defense rested on the sidelines. If we start racking up three-and-outs, our D will get tired fast, and with no fresh players to sub in, things could get ugly.

I think Simms and Poole will rise to the task, the D will play inspired football, and "the real UT" will leave Baton Rouge with a 24-17 win.

ACC conference play isn't too exciting due to the lackluster start, but gotta root on my own team.
Same with me. Except I'm on the NCSU side of the fence Wow it's almost hard to believe we're the last undefeated team in the ACC(True Pack fans know what I'm talking about), I hope it continues too of course.

As for another game, eh, whatever prime-time game comes on I guess. Or UT-OU.

Agreed - and the defense needs to seriously show up. Giving up, what, almost 600 yards to ASU is not acceptable! I really don't see Stanford turning the ball over seven times to help out.

NCSU has looked pretty good this year. That QB has been solid so far.
