Here it is…weekend College Football preview!

First things first, let’s put a bow on Thursday night’s action.  San Diego Chargers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 31 -14.  The only really pretty thing about this game was the San Diego backdrop.  In ACC action, Miami defeated a surprisingly bad this year Virginia Tech team, 30 – 12.  VT had three turnovers, two of them being  interceptions thrown by QB Logan Thomas who did not have a good game.  Miami takes a half game lead in the Coastal Division over North Carolina and Duke (yes, Duke)!

Friday night College Football features Washington at California.  (Two pretty good NBA games on as well).

NOW, drum roll please, let’s get to this weekend’s action!

Noon games will feature the following:

Georgia Tech visits Maryland.  Maryland will be starting their fifth string quarterback (a former linebacker).  Will Georgia Tech start Vad Lee at QB for this game??

Missouri will visit the swamp to play 7 Florida.  Can the gators rebound from last week’s tough loss to UGA?

16 Texas A & M (will be in the SEC next year) vs. 15 Mississippi State (long time member of the SEC).  Should be a good game!

12 Oklahoma will visit Iowa State and also at 2:00 pm EST, 14 Stanford will play Colorado (should be no surprise outcome in this game).

3:30 pm EST will bring us Ole Miss at 6 UGA.  Will the dawgs be flat after last weekend’s big win over Florida?

Pittsburgh (playing without their starting WR and RB due to assault charges) will travel to South Bend to take on 3 Notre Dame.

And perhaps the biggest mid-day game; 23 Texas vs. 18 Texas Tech in Lubbock.  Maybe this one is big because it is two Texas teams?  I sort of don’t get why Texas is still ranked?  Moving on…

Saturday night match ups are huge!!  At 7:00 pm EST we have 13 Clemson at Duke (Clemson should prevail) and in a hugely important game, 4 Oregon vs. 17 USC in the coliseum.  This is Oregon’s chance to start picking up points by beating ranked opponents and show the BCS where they really belong?  Should be a good game.  Love watching  Oregon play anyway,  only team where if you blink, you may miss two touchdowns ( at least!).

8:00 pm EST brings us to two prime time games! 24 Oklahoma State vs. 2 Kansas State and Heisman front runner Collin Klein and then…..

1 Alabama travels to Baton Rouge to take on 5 LSU (the team with the longest home winning streak in the country).  We have all been waiting for this one and I do not think it will in any way disappoint.  Predictions???  Not yet.
