Welcome to fun week, where every team is basically playing a big game.
5. Cincinnati Bearcats at South Florida Bulls
The Bearcats are a sneaky team that could run the table and with a lot of chips falling in their favor find their way into the BCS title. Granted they would get pummeled in the game, but they could get there. This week is arguably their biggest challenge, headed to face their old DC and the South Florida Bulls. Do they win? The Pick: Bearcats by 3
4. Southern California Trojans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish
I mention this game not just for the fact that the two are ranked but partially because its fun saying Notre Dame is going to get crunched. Jimmy Clausen is having a good year, but not after Taylor Mays breaks him in two. The Pick: Trojans by 17
3. Virginia Tech Hokies at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Just ask the Jets what some classic rushing football can do to a "good" defense, VaTech. The issue? Their defense sucks. The Pick: Hokies by 13.
2. South Carolina Gamecocks at Alabama Crimson Tide
The Gamecocks have looked impressive in their past few weeks and one could say this is a big challenge for evil Nick. I just don't see it. Alabama's D and rush attack is just too mighty right now. The Pick: Tide by 13
1. Oklahoma Sooners vs Texas Longhorns in Dallas
It's not often that two teams playing each other are in search of blood thirst quenching revenge, but the Red River Shootout brings it this year. The Sooners want revenge on their only regular season loss last year while the Longhorns want to beat the shit out of the Sooners after they stole their spot in the BCS title game via a three wayt split. This game is awesome, and I'm pumped Bradford is back, as for the pick, we're going for the upset and Stoops revenge.The Pick: Sooners by 6.
