College Football Week 10

by Larry Leek

This is by FAR the best week thus far this season. There are 6-games between top 25 teams and WOYSM will look at each one and let you know Whats On Our Sports Mind about each game. Besides these six games there are quite a few other intriguing games to add to your college football schedule this weekend.

We start in Miami, where the #10 Virginia Tech Hokies take on the #3 Miami Hurricanes. When you look at these 2-teams, neither one has really beaten anyone. The Hokies only loss came at the hands of #5 Clemson and their biggest win was against a former top 25 team, the West Virginia Mountaineers, other than that their schedule was a virtual cakewalk and the same can be said about the Hurricanes. After the Syracuse Orange defeated Clemson earlier this year, you can probably assume that the Orange was Miami’s biggest win. The winner of this game will likely wind up being the ACC Coastal Division Champ and will certainly increase their chances of making the 4-team playoffs. So this is a HUGE game for both teams and a MUST watch for all fans, so add this gem to your schedule.

Last weekend the #8 Penn St. Nittany Lions were brought back down to earth after losing to the #7 Ohio St. Buckeyes. It don’t get any easier for Penn St. when they head to E. Lansing, MI to take on the #23 Michigan St. Spartans. Even though the Nittany Lions are heavy favorites in this game you never know what might happen when these 2-teams get together an upset is definitely a possibility. Unfortunately unless the Buckeyes should happen to lose a couple more games this season, both Penn St. and the Spartans can only hope to finish as high as 2nd in the Big 10, Eastern Division. Regardless of the implications this will still be a classic to watch so make sure you add it to your schedule. Michigan St. is also coming off a loss, they were beaten by the Northwestern Wildcats last weekend 39-31 and their other loss came in week 3 against the #11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The Border Battle between the #18 South Carolina Gamecocks and #2 Georgia Bulldogs has always been a good game to watch and theres been quite a few photo finishes over the years. The Bulldogs are HEAVY favorites in this one, but you never know. The Gamecocks have shown flashes this season and they have the potential to pull off the upset. the 6-2 Gamecocks biggest win of the season was in their opener when they defeated North Carolina St. but their 2-losses were against the Kentucky Wildcats and Texas A&M AggiesGeorgia has demolished pretty much everyone they have played this season and have looked better with each passing week, their closest game was against the Irish, they beat them by only one pt. Georgia should come away with the victory but you will definitely want to tune in because you NEVER know.

 

Last year the #5 Clemson Tigers were almost upset by the #22 North Carolina St. Wolfpack at home, this year the Wolfpack will try to get it done at their home field. Clemson has one blemish on their record, their loss to Syracuse, the Wolfpack are licking their wounds after being embarrassed by the Irish last Saturday 35-14. The Wolfpacks biggest win came against the Louisville Cardinals. The Tigers have looked good early on this season but in their last 3-games they are 2-1, while both of their wins were only by 14-pts. each against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and  Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. One things for sure an upset is a DEFINITE possibility here. You would have to be CRAZY not to add this game to your weekend schedule, it should be a GOOD one.  

 

 

Lets head to Stillwater, OK for the battle between to arch rivals, the #9 Oklahoma Sooners and the #12 Oklahoma St. Cowboys. You want to talk bad blood, these 2-teams have it for each other. The Sooners appear to have blew their chances of making the playoffs after their upset loss to the Iowa St. Cyclones  5-weeks ago. They are coming off a win against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the Sooners defeated The Red Raiders 49-27 and they did defeat the Buckeyes earlier in the year, giving Ohio St. their only loss. The Cowboys only loss was to the #13 TCU Horned Frogs and their biggest win was against then ranked West Virginia and they also beat Texas Tech, but Oklahoma St. really has not proved themselves quite as much as the Sooners. One things for sure though, this game could go either way especially since the Cowboys are at home. A MUST watch.

 

The LSU Tigers initially looked like their season was going to be a nightmare after starting out the season at 3-2 which included losses to the Mississippi St. Bulldogs and Troy Trojans. Fans were already calling for 1st year head coach, Ed Orgeron’s head. Since then the Tigers have won their last 3-games, all of which were SEC opponents including their wins over the #14 Auburn Tigers and then ranked Florida Gators. Today they travel to Tuscaloosa, AL to take on the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide and it’s NOT going to be easy for LSU to get that 4th straight. You can argue that Alabama’s road has been easier than LSU’s thus far but for the most part they have had an easy time with most of their opponents. They did have a tough time beating the Aggies on the road, so there is a SLIM chance that LSU could get the win and IF they do it will be their 1st over the Crimson Tide in 7-years as the Tide have won the last 6. Make SURE you add this beauty to you schedule.
