Games of the Week

1. #6 LSU AT #9 Georgia

This is Georgia’s third game (out of four) this season vs a team ranked in the top ten.  For LSU, it’s their first game vs a ranked team.  Georgia has the home field advantage while this is LSU’s first true road game (the game vs TCU was a neutral site game). LSU starting QB Zach Mettenberger left Georgia in 2010 after pleading guilty to sexual battery, which paved the way for Aaron Murray to become the Bulldogs starting quarterback.  This is an interesting game for Georgia because it looks to be the last big game remaining on their schedule.  If they can escape this early season gauntlet with one road loss to a top five team, there should be no reason to think they can’t end the season with an 11-1 record and be playing in Atlanta for the SEC Championship.  For LSU, this is the first test of a bumpy road that includes games vs Florida, at Ole Miss, at Alabama and vs Texas A&M.  (Game is on CBS at 3:30 pm EST)

2. #13 Ole Miss AT #1 Alabama

At the beginning of this season I told you to watch out for the Ole Miss Rebels.  We have a game in which both teams are undefeated and I believe the Rebels have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  In my college pick’em game on Yahoo, the point spread is 0.0…..it is a true pick’em.  While I think Alabama should win the game, it would not surprise me in the least to see Ole Miss come in and steal this one away from the Crimson Tide.  (Game on ESPN at 6:30 pm EST)

3. Wisconsin AT #3 Ohio State

Finally, the Buckeyes play a team that has a chance to beat them. Let’s see what Urban Meyer’s team is made of.  (Game on ABC at 8:00 pm EST)

4. #15 Oklahoma AT #25 Notre Dame

Bob Stoops vs Brian Kelly, should be a fun game to watch.  I’ll be flipping between this one and the LSU/Georgia game.  (Game on NBC at 3:30 pm EST)
