Early College Football for this Saturday…

This weekend’s action offers up some important and enticing match ups.  In the ACC, as a Georgia Tech fan, I am glad for the bye week.  No gut wrenching emotional game watching and hopefully we can regroup and come out and play some good football in the weeks ahead.  Also, interesting to see what happens with the defense after Al Groh firing.

Other ACC action will feature Duke at Virginia Tech, Boston College will visit FSU in Tallahassee, and the biggest ACC game this weekend, North Carolina at Miami.  Will be noteworthy to see how FSU responds after loss to NC State.  I expect they will respond in fine fashion and win.  North Carolina and Miami is a match up that right now, figures to play a big role in who MAY win the Coastal Division.  Duke at Virginia Tech will be interesting, we should find out a lot about both programs!

Other games include Tennessee at Mississippi State, Alabama at Missouri (without their QB, James Franklin), West Virginia vs. Texas, Iowa vs. Michigan State, BYU vs. Oregon State, USC at Washington, and an interesting match up, Florida at Vanderbilt.  But, the two BIG games this weekend are 17 Stanford at 7 Notre Dame and 3 South Carolina at 9 LSU in Baton Rouge.  College Game Day will be in South Bend for the first time since 2005 to feature the game between Stanford and Notre Dame.  The other huge game is the big SEC game between South Carolina and LSU in Death Valley.  Predictions???  I am going to go with Notre Dame and South Carolina (not feeling confident with either, however, right now!)

First BCS poll will be released this Sunday following the weekend’s action.  And sad news for College Football fans and others, the passing of Beano Cook last night at the age of 81.
