Have fun with this everybody!
This week has quite a few interesting games on the schedule:
Oregon visits Tennessee in what should be quite a bit tougher for the Ducks than the 72-0 thrashing they put on New Mexico last week. LaMichael James is back from suspension this week for Oregon. This is the first ever meeting between the 2 schools….BYU travels to Air Force to kickoff the Mountain West Conference season. Will this be the last time these 2 play as conference rivals?….Georgia travels to South Carolina in what should be an extremely entertaining game. Will the AJ Green drama distract the Bulldogs or will they use it to come together. South Carolina looked very good in week one, shutting down DeAndre Brown and the So Miss offense….Stanford travels to UCLA in a Pac 10 battle. After getting humiliated by Daniel Thomas and the K-State rush offense, how will the Bruins handle Andrew Luck and The Cardinal passing attack? The Bruins should be able to move the ball though….Iowa State and Iowa square off in the annual rivalry game, but it won’t be much of a contest. Iowa State does have a pretty good QB in Austen Arnaud and one of my favorite Head Coaches in Paul Rhoads, but that is about it. Look for Iowa to roll in this game….Miami travels to Ohio State in a huge early season matchup. The Buckeyes haven’t seen a team as athletic as the Hurricanes in a long time, how will they adjust? Jacory Harris is Terrelle Pryor Lite in my opinion. This game also features 2 stud defensive lineman in Allen Bailey of Miami and Cameron Heyward of Ohio State, keep your eye on these 2 chasing down the athletic QBs….Georgia Tech travels to Kansas in a game that should be a cakewalk for the Yellow Jackets. The Jayhawks lost to North Dakota State last weekend 6-3 and decided to make a qb change this week rolling with redshirt freshman Jordan Webb. GaTech runs the triple option as good as anybody with Josh Nesbitt at the helm….Michigan travels to Notre Dame for a matchup that got much more interesting after last weekend. Wolverine QB Denard Robinson was incredible last saturday on the ground and thru the air, racking up nearly 400 yards. Are the comparisons to Pat White justified yet? The Fighting Irish have their hands full, but they have weapons to throw to in Michael Floyd and Kyle Rudolph….Penn State heads south to Alabama for a big time matchup. Nittany Lions QB Rob Bolden had a great debut last week, but playing Youngstown State at home and traveling to Alabama are exact opposites. There is no possible way Roll Tide Roll loses this game, it shouldn’t even be close….Florida State heads to Oklahoma in a battle of brothers and big time prospects. I have a feeling Big brother Bob Stoops is going to put it on his brother Mark(FSU D Coordinator) and he won’t let up. Ryan Broyles of the Sooners and Greg Reid of the Seminoles are two of the most dynamic playmakers in the game, don’t blink. Travis Lewis and Jeremy Beal of the Sooner defense have the ability to take over the game, but so does FSU QB Christian Ponder.
