Three undefeated teams have major challenges this week with 1 (Alabama) getting to feat on Fulmer.
5. Southern California Trojans at Arizona Wildcats
Not like I think the Wildcats are back to being a Pac 10 contender but they are 5-2 right now with the same conference record as the Trojans. So if the Trojans lose that they could potentially be in trouble for the Pac 10 crown, but eh who sees them losing to any Arizona squad? The Pick: Trojans by 17
4. Texas Tech Red Raiders at Kansas Jayhawks
Hey look the Red Raiders finally play a decent opponent and it just so happens that it's going to come on the road. Well priding myself as a Raider Hater I think Mangino is hungry for some Leach. The Pick: Jayhawks by 6
3. Georgia Bulldogs at Louisiana State Tigers
This matchup seems to not be getting the National love it really deserves. As prominent 1 loss teams in the SEC both are still in the Title hunt. If either runs the table the rest of the year than odds are in their favor for joining the Longhorns in the title game. Personally I think it's time for Matthew Stafford to have a big game and pull out the road victory. The Pick: Bulldogs by 3
2. Penn State Nittany Lions at Ohio State Buckeyes
Joe Pa's biggest challenge on the way to an undefeated Big 10 season and a trip to the BCS title game. The problem is that the Buckeyes are at minimum an equal team, have a better coaching staff, perennially have better recruiting classes and are at home. Sorry Joe Pa. The Pick: Buckeyes by 6.
1. Oklahoma State Cowboys at Texas Longhorns
Two more wins before the Longhorns can cruise into the Big 12 title game. This week they host the Cowboys who softened up Mizzou for them. The Cowboys come into Austin with National Title dreams still alive. Those dreams will be crushed by Colt McCoy. The Pick: Longhorns by 7.
