Another great week in college football, including two MUST win games for in-state teams. Here's how it stacks up:
11 AM - Iowa vs. Minnesota - BTN
While Iowa is listed as a 7 point favorite in this game, I think it has a chance to come right down to the wire. The pig is on the line, and its the Gophers, not the Hawkeyes, that are 4-0 coming into this game. The Hawks still have a ton of questions, and without a win tomorrow a bowl game could be in question. If you're a Clone fan and don't want to watch Iowa, check out West Virginia vs. Baylor on FX.
2:30 - Tennessee at Georgia - CBS
Vern and Gary might be staring at a blowout, but Tennessee has shown flashes on occasion this year. The SEC East should come down to Georgia and South Carolina this year (next weekend in Columbia!). Florida could climb into the equation, and they blew out Tennessee already this year. I'll also keep an eye on Ohio State vs. Michigan State, but it just doesn't quite have the same luster it did before the season.
6 PM - Iowa State vs. Texas Tech - Fox College Sports
A loss tomorrow might not eliminate the Clones from bowl eligibility, but a win sure would help. Iowa State is capable of winning games in which they are major underdogs (see: Oklahoma State last season), but it sure would be nice not to have to win two of them this season to reach a bowl game. I'd expect Iowa State to be well prepared for a Tech team that no one seems to have a great grip on just yet. In the second half, I'll keep an eye on Wisconsin vs. Nebraska and Texas vs. Oklahoma State
9:30 PM - Oregon at Washington State - ESPN2
The Ducks are one of the most fun teams to watch in college football - the offense under Chip Kelly is just incredible. Mike Leach and the Cougars got beat by (gulp) Colorado last week, so the game doesn't figure to be too close. That being said, the Ducks are in a pretty small group of elite teams that could challenge for spot in the title game this year.
Have a good weekend, and enjoy the games
