5. Pittsburgh Panthers at South Florida Bulls
The Wanny's have bounced back from an inexcusable season opening loss with 3 straight wins. Meanwhile the Bulls of South Florida have charged out to the poll position in the Big East and a #10 ranking in the nation. The Bulls have barely got by in some matchups already this season and could easily trip up tonight, but come on its Wanny. He doesn't beat people. The Pick: Bulls by 6
4. Oregon Ducks at Southern California Trojans
The Ducks are ranked and looking to bounce back and the Trojans obviously are looking to bounce back. The problem for the Ducks is that they are in fact ranked and the Trojans know they need to show up. So the Trojans will, and will cruise to a victory. The Pick: Trojans by 17
3. Texas Longhorns at Colorado Buffalos
The Longhorns have played absolutely nobody so far this season so they've emerged ast the #5 team in America. I'm not saying the Buffalos are 'somebodies' but they at least have a competitive team this year and at home have the potential to shock the Longhorns. The Pick: Longhorns by 10
2. Auburn Tigers at Vanderbilt Commodores
Gameday is going to the land of the Commodore for the first time (and potentially last) in Vandy history. And why? Cause they are 4-0 unlike the rest of the SEC East. This game will show if they are for real. The Pick: Auburn by 2.
1. Ohio State Buckeyes at Wisconsin Badgers
Why is any game in the Big 10 the biggest of the weekend? Because it has major ramifications for USC. If Ohio St. runs the table and looks like the championship contender they were in seasons past then the Trojans will reemerge as potential BCS title game suitors. If they slip up this week against the Badgers than for both the Buckeyes and the Trojans the title shots might be kissed goodbye.The Pick: Buckeyes by 3.
