5 for Saturday

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.
