College Football Trend Watching : Week 11

What You Know: Nebraska Lost but otherwise an unchanged week in college football. This week will decide just about everything...

What You Should Know (but might have missed)
  • Nebraska's uberfreshman Martinez has been hurt and without him at 100% Nebraska's O has returned to last year's putridity. If Nebraska wins against Colorado they will go the Big 12 Championship against the winner of Ok State v. OU. Otherwise Missouri will go.
  • If NC State wins they will face off V-Tech (who has won 9 straight since losing to James Madison). If they lose the Seminoles will be back in the ACC Championship game for the first time in forever.
  • Because the Pac 10 sucks their rivalry games are a week later than everybody else. Consequently they suck. I will note that if Boise/TCU goes to the Championship game alongside Oregon the Rose Bowl is free to select whomever they'd like and will probably select Stanford - which may well squeeze Boise/TCU out of the other at-large spot.

Games of the Week
Auburn @ Alabama - Iron Bowl. BCS hopes. No SEC Implications
Boise State @ Nevada - A win - especially definitive and Boise will leap TCU in the standings.

The GAME (at noon) - For hate sake
Florida @ Florida State (3:30) - not as much hate but still a lot
Ok State @ Oklahoma (night game) - Winner wins the Big 12 South. Loser forced to watch Jake Gyllenhaal movie

Prediction Time 11/23

BCS Championship: Oregon v. Auburn
Orange Bowl : Virginia Tech v. TCU
Sugar Bowl: LSU v. Ohio State
Fiesta: Pittsburgh v. Nebraska
Rose Bowl: Boise State v. Wisconsin

1) why are two hot chicks wearing ohio state and michigan jersies at the same time? did you personally pay for this?
2) v-tech's dominance since the loss to james madison is pretty funny... also because james madison was supposed to be very good, but they've slipped to an awful 6-5 on the season.
3) ok- ok state should be great.
4) i can't believe baylor and utah sucked so much that tcu's ranking has sufferend so much.
