2-2-1 Last Week. That's how we roll around here so get used to it. This week is as jam packed a non conference slate as I can remember. There is not one single titanic clash but several good matchups. All games are Saturday
Georgia @ South Carolina (-2.5) Noon ESPN
WR A.J. Green is supspended for Georgia and I am high on South Carolina this year for no real reason other than its time. Perhaps this is the year Spurrier finally gets them to the SEC Championship.
Michigan (+4) @ Notre Dame 3:30 NBC
History says take the dog to win straight up. I'll let you decide whether to do that or take the points. Michigan's defense is still likely a house of horrors but the offense was a chained pit bull last week and will be unleashed. For Notre Dame, we'll see how good QB Dayne Crist is this week because he could be a differance maker.
Florida State @ Oklahoma (-9) 3:30 ESPN 2/ ABC
Call this taking advantage of the public's knee jerk reaction to Oklahoma's close game with Utah State last week.
Miami @ Ohio State (-10) 3:40 ESPN
First off why is this game not on ABC? It's begging for a national audience. Anyways, I have been hearing all week that Miami looks great against this line and could even win. I hope they are right but I don't think the Canes are prepared for this. When Tressel feels his hand is forced he isn't afraid to turn his team loose. This doesn't seem like a Tresselball game where it's all run the ball and defend.
Penn State @ Alabama (-11.5) 7 PM ESPN
Again why is this not on ABC? I don't know if this will be the blowout so percieve it to be. 2 touchdowns seem likely even if Penn State is close late. I'll probably be rooting for them anyways.
