Game of the week– Our game of the week sends us down south to the SEC matchup when LSU travels to Alabama. Since 2000 LSU has gone 7-2 against the Tide including a 4-0 record at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Alabama does holding bragging rights at the moment by winning last years games 27-21 at LSU.  Simple SEC bragging rights are not all that are at stake come Saturday.  The winner of this game controls the SEC west and most likely will play Florida for a chance to go to the national championship game.  Mark Ingram, running back for the Crimson Tide is also looking to boost his heisman trophey hopes as well.  With a heisman hopeful and national championship implications on the line, this is the must see game of the week.  I am actually picking the upset and going with the Tigers in a tough game 24-21.

Other game to watch– Ohio St. travels to Penn St. in a massive Big Ten game.  Loser of this game most likely is on the outside looking in on the BCS bowl games while the winner has a chance to play in the Rose Bowl.  If Ohio St. can pull out the win, the road doesn’t get any easier when they have to play the unbeaten Iowa Hawkeyes at home. If Penn St. can get a win, their final two games are against teams with sub .500 records. The Nittany Lions would have a smooth shot at a BCS game for coach Joe Paterno.  This game will come down to quarterback play.  If Terrelle Pryor can be an affective passer, then I think the Buckeyes have a shot, but have Pryor be an affective passer might be asking too much, I have Penn St. with the win 35-21.

My top 15 picks– Florida, Texas, LSU, Iowa, Cincinnati, TCU, Oregon, Georgia Tech, Penn St., USC, Pittsburgh, Utah, Houston
