The season is winding down. There are six undefeated teams left, and we are getting close to knowing who is going to play for the crystal football.
- Alabama – Huge night road game at LSU
- Oregon – Huge night road game at USC
- Kansas St. – Home night game vs. Oklahoma St.
- Notre Dame – At home against a feeble Pitt team
- Louisville – At home against Temple
- Ohio St. – At home against the Big Ten’s worst, Illinois
Saturday, November 3rd
Texas A&M at Mississippi St. (11 am/ESPN) – Theoretically the winner of this is still alive in the SEC East race. MSU lost to Alabama and A&M lost to LSU. So if the team the winner of this game lost to, loses later on Saturday, they are alive. In other words, if MSU wins and Alabama loses, MSU could beat LSU next week and own first place.
Missouri at Florida (11 am/ESPN2) – Florida needs help, but remains alive in the SEC race. Because of that, they are also in the National Championship race if they can get some breaks.
Temple vs. Louisville (11 am/ABC) – It’s ridiculous to think that Louisville has any chance at the National Championship, but if they go undefeated, and no one else does, they could get there. They are #10 now. They have to keep winning though.
Texas vs. Texas Tech (2:30 pm/ABC or ESPN2) – The Mack Brown Hot Seat Watch is in full effect. This game is going to be a tough one. I wonder what it will take for him to get the axe. We still might find out.
Pittsburgh at Notre Dame (2:30 pm/NBC) – Now that Notre Dame is past Oklahoma, conventional wisdom indicates they will cruise to the USC game. But that is exactly the time a team slips up. Notre Dame must keep the pedal to the floor.
Ole Miss at Georgia (2:30 pm/CBS) – Stretching a bit here. Georgia should roll, but now that they have their destiny in their own hands anything could happen.
Alabama vs. LSU (7 pm/CBS) – Most people thought this was the game of the year coming into the season. LSU is good, but their offense has a lot of issues. I really think Alabama wins this one big. But an upset makes this interesting.
Oregon vs. USC (6 pm/Fox) – Now that USC has two losses, this one isn’t as special. Oregon looks like one of the two best teams in the country right now, and a big road win here would go a long way. If both Oregon and Alabama win on the road on Saturday it will be hard to consider anyone else for the top 2.
Oklahoma St. at Kansas St. (7 pm/ESPN2) – Collin Klein continues his march to the Heisman. This one isn’t a layup for Kansas St., but this would be another quality win for them.
