November 22, 2011, 09:09 AM
Well, spam has been under control for two days now. Here are the games (still using AP since USC is in that one):

1 LSU vs 3 Arkansas game of the week
2 Alabama at Auburn IB, nothing more to be said
4 Stanford vs 22 Notre Dame BCS bid possible for both
6 Virginia Tech at 24 Virginia
7 Boise State vs Wyoming, WY is 7-3 but is much better at home
8 Houston at Tulsa - game of the year in C-USA
9 Oregon vs Oregon State, Civil War version 115 this year
10 USC vs UCLA, RN retirement game unless he can pull it out
11 Michigan State at Northwestern, MSU has crept up the rankings a lot
12 Oklahoma vs Iowa State, ISU done for the year with upsets?
13 Georgia at 25 Georgia Tech - I do love the ACC vs SEC week
14 South Carolina vs 18 Clemson - ACC vs SEC pt II
15 Wisconsin vs 20 Penn State - Big test for the PSU defense
17 Michigan vs Ohio State - possible BCS bowl bid on the line
21 Baylor vs Texas Tech, RG III's numbers may be silly in this one
22 Nebraska vs Iowa - The time of year that puts Iowa's conditioning to the test... Until the offseason that is.

Other notables (5 this week since there are fewer games above):
FSU at UF - chomp or spear?
Vandy at WFU - last of the ACC vs SEC games
Texas vs TAMU - last one for a while? HC hotseat for loser?
CAL at ASU - FWIW this is the big game to decide who wins the P12 south, ASU or Utah
Pitt at WVU - does anyone want to win the BE?

My feel on that is UGA was prepping for GT during the week leading to the Kentucky game, which is why they struggled so much in that one. The alternative is that UGA has had a weak schedule and simply are not that good. I favor the 1st option but that may be impacted by my MWC homerism.

Yeah, but look what they did to Clemson, when they get a game they really want badly enough, and it is at their home, watch out.

Bobby Dodd Stadium is pretty much a home field for UGA too.
