After Bama destroyed the 3rd weekend in October hype last week, they face another team, unbeaten so far, in Tuscaloosa this week. The Aggies have done what they had to do every game so far. And they've had a week off to get Garrett and a couple others in better health conditions going into the game. Line has grown to 19. This Aggie defense has only really had one bad outing, and that was the 2nd half vs Tennessee. In that game they missed 31 tackles. But otherwise that defense has done its job. Knight has to find his receivers against a defense that is scoring every week itself (I think 10 TDs so far by Roll Tide's defense). A&M has some real talent on this team, but I think they have to count on a few turnovers by the Tide to win this.
Thursday night Miami at Virginia Tech--after last week, can Richt get the Canes ready to win in Blacksburg?
Also, on Thursday night, BYU at Boise St. Harsin's boys win this one
Wisconsin actually gets a breather, playing at Iowa. The tough Badgers schedule the last month has been brutal, and they've acquitted themselves well though losing.
Texas @ Kansas St...can the Horns play defense again? Probably against the Wildcats. But will the Wizard's defensive schemes upend the offensive game plan of Texas?
TCU @ West Virginia....we'll see the biggest test so far for the 'Eers defense. I think they get it done again
Colorado @ Stanford...I look forward to see what this game will mean to these two teams. Are the Buffs really getting their program back?
Purdue with an interim coach, @ Nebraska. Can the Huskers continue to do the job well enough to win, overcoming turnovers and mistakes, and still winning?
Arkansas @ Auburn....most of us thought Auburn and Malzahn were done a few weeks ago, but they've won 3 in a row after getting Les Miles fired.
Oregon St @ Washington.....another W for Peterson
Ohio St @ Penn St....no contest
Oklahoma @ Texas Tech....Red Raiders don't have a chance after what we saw last week vs W Va
Ole Miss @ LSU....might be one of the best games of the week, though it means nothing now
Leach accusing Arizona St of stealing signs again...the same old song from last week. What will Wash St be able to do against them?
Michigan hosts Illinois...there's a W
