September 5, 2012, 04:08 PM
All these creampuffs (most at home to boot) are a shame on the whole sport... Never the less here is this weeks weakish slate:

1 Alabama vs Western Kentucky
2 USC @Syracuse
3 LSU vs Washington : Maybe a decent game
4 Oregon vs Fresno State
5 Oklahoma vs Florida A&M
6 Florida State vs Savannah State
7 Georgia @ Missouri : Game of the week
8 Arkansas vs Louisiana-Monroe
9 West Virginia vs James Madison
10 South Carolina vs East Carolina
11 Michigan State @ Central Michigan
12 Clemson vs Ball State
13 Wisconsin @ Oregon State : OSU has a shot if WISC plays like they did week 1
14 Ohio State vs UCF : Should be decent
15 VT vs Austin Peay
16 NEB @ UCLA : Possible that this one is worth watching
17 Texas vs New Mexico
18 Oklahoma State @ Arizona : How much has RR done so far?
19 Michigan vs Air Force : TSUN gets more injuries on the lines, should be close
20 TCU vs Grambling State
21 Kansas State vs Miami (FL) : Best TV game of the week maybe
22 Notre Dame vs Purdue
23 Louisville vs Missouri State
24 Florida @ Texas A&M : UF playing a game out of the Deep South....
25 Stanford vs Duke

Other Notables:
PITT @ Cincy - Thursday special, how long till PITT gets a win this year?
Utah @ UTS - Friday Delight, can UTS hang with big brother Utah?
Vandy @ NW, Egghead vs egghead, SCAR fans should be interested too
USF @ Nevada - Top 25 for winner of this one perhaps
Iowa vs ISU, both undefeated for some sort of corn trophy.....

I doubt it. I watched the UCF beatdown of Akron and the Zips were moving the ball through the air pretty good at times.

The Buckeyes are going to just shred the UCF secondary.

And, by Utes I mean Utah, not the State but the University...of....Utah.

Let me get this straight. You think UCF might keep it close BECAUSE OF bad calls? Are you suggesting that if the game was played at a neutral site with non biased refs that UCF might have a good chance to win this game?

I think it's funny that you're predicting not only the game but the officiating too!

Ohio State won't need any help from the refs for this one and if the Buckeyes can mostly contain UCF's running game the Buckeyes will win in a rout because the Knights offense is pretty much one dimensional with the ground game being their primary weapon against the Zips last week.

I am saying tOSU will get the benifit of a few calls and will win a close game. Your lack of faith in UCF's gameplay is disturbing and indicates an imbalance in the force....
