Maybe now the bulk of the news will be about football for now.... Here are the games:

1 LSU vs Kentucky - Will bluegrass blood run red?
2 Oklahoma vs Ball State - Why?
3 Alabama at 12 Florida *Game of the week if you think UF is ranked about right*
4 Boise State vs Nevada -payback will probably get pretty ugly in this one
6 Stanford vs UCLA - It was fun for RN while it lasted....
7 Wisconsin vs 8 Nebraska *Game of the week if you think UF is ranked too high*
10 South Carolina vs Auburn - Durability at RB for SCAR may become an issue.
11 Virginia Tech vs 13 Clemson *Game of the week for ACC true believers*
14 Texas A&M vs Arkansas - Last week killed the luster on this one.
15 Baylor at Kansas State - Can't see this as an upset either way...
17 Texas at Iowa State - Will revenge or a steak dinner be on the menu?
19 Michigan vs Minnesota - MINN vs OrSU for the worst BCS team this year.
20 TCU vs Southern Methodist - Friday night lights
21 Georgia Tech at North Carolina State
22 West Virginia vs Bowling Green -not sure how WVU is ranked and KSU isn't...
24 Illinois vs Northwestern
25 Arizona State vs Oregon State

Other notable games:

MSU at UGA - Jobs on the line?
UW at Utah - Decent matchup btwn 3-1/2-1 teams
AFA at Navy - CIC cup to the winner
BYU vs Utah State - two in a row for USU?

BTW, my picks coming in a bit. ARK vs TAMU and NEB vs WISC are making my brain hurt.

" MINN vs OrSU for the worst BCS team this year. "

I'd put my money on Indiana.

For nonAQ teams its a horse race between Akron, Memphis and New Mexico.

Well the annual epic UNM vs NMSU game is on this weekend. The loser of that one is always in the race to the bottom.

Think UGA uses Dawgs and MSU uses the full Bulldogs (or some sort of cowbell ref).

Is the rest of the world thinking Corn Aggy/Wiskey will be close? I'm expecting a 20-point Wiskey win................ I've been wrong about this kind of stuff as often as I've bee right, of course.

Given that NEB played and beat a decent UW team and WISC has played the worst OOC slate I can think of this year its hard to estimate how good each team might be.

In theory WISC should pound NEB, but if UNLV can make good yardage on the ground it plants a huge seed of doubt in my mind for this one.

Picks later, but Wisconsin - Nebraska should be the Game of the Week regardless of what you think of Florida's ranking.

I expect to see some mighty mighty pleasin' Corn Aggy squeezin' by the end of the day Saturday. Either way I'm thinkin' you'll get Wiskey.

They are both Bulldogs and Dawgs....State also uses the Cowbell
