I'm going SEC free Big 5 this week. I understand the cocktail party is this weekend, but I fully expect the Gators to maul the Bulldogs.
5. South Florida Bulls at Uconn Huskies
FraudConn picked up another illegitimate win last week after they were granted a td they didn't deserve. So now 7 games into the season they are 6-1 and lead the Big East Conference. If somehow they can manage to cheat their way to victory yet again, who knows maybe they could sneak into the BCS. The Pick: No Chance, the Bulls expose FraudConn for what they are, a mediocre team.
4. California Bears at Arizona St. Sun Devils
The Sun Devils start out the Big 5s countdown of undefeated teams who this weekend will face their first legit opponent. The Sun Devils have defeated mediocre Oregon St. and Colorado this season. Despite the fact that Cal is reeling they and lost to the Beavers themselves, they are a more talented squad. The Pick: Something tells me the Sun Devils fall at a later time.
3. Ohio State Buckeyes at Penn State Nittany Lions
On the Buckeye schedule this is really one of two games you would expect them to be challenged in. Big Saturday night matchup in the white out stadium against a solid but not spectacular Penn St. squad. This game is tough to call really, because as I've stated over and over again, there is no way yet this season to know just how good the Buckeyes are. The Pick: Joe Pa goes home angry and yelling at more traffic violators.
2. Southern California at Oregon Ducks
The Trojans were hyped up as the best team in the country at the start of the season and so far have done absolutely nothing to justify that early rank. Meanwhile the Ducks are being hyped as one of the best teams in the country right now despite only defeating an overrated Michigan squad. Time to see who's for real. The Pick: Duck Power
1. Boston College Eagles at Virginia Tech Hokies
Despite their early season beatdown in the Bayou, if the Hokies run the table in impressive fashion, have a few balls bounce their way, and win the ACC championship, it isn't that far fetched to think that they could still someway creep into the National Title game. Meanwhile the Eagles run the table, they'll almost surely be there. This matchup is huge. The Pick: VaTech takes it with the home field advantage.
