#5 TCU Horned Frogs 3-0 @ SMU Mustangs 2-1 (2-0)
Saturday September 25th 2010
|Ryan Mallett showed much poise during crunch time as|
he led Arkansas to victory over Georgia.
#2 Ohio State Buckeyes 3-0 vs Eastern Michigan Eagles 0-3 (0-2)
Ohio State plays their fourth straight home game of the season (they have eight total). This one will be another breezer as they face their second MAC opponent. Another big day for Pryor and company. OSU 56 EMU 0. Brandon: OSU 52 EMU 12.
#3 Boise State Broncos 2-0 vs Oregon State Beavers 1-1
#4 Texas Longhorns 3-0 (1-0) vs UCLA Bruins 1-2 (0-1)
|LaMichael James leads the way for the|
2010 highest scoring offense.
#7 Nebraska Cornhuskers 3-0 vs South Dakota State Jackrabbits 0-2 (0-1)
#8 Florida Gators 3-0 (1-0) vs Kentucky Wildcats 3-0
UK is lead by senior running back Derrick Locke who is coming off of a big game against Akron. The Gators are rolling thus far in 2010 with Jeff Demps giving them the spark in each of their three games. The SEC really is unpredictable sometimes but I'm not sure the Wildcats have a chance in this one. UF has alot of momentum scoring at least 31 points in each game so far with the defense keeping each opponent under 20 points. I see the same pattern here as they host Kentucky. Jeff Brantley will have a decent game but the play maker will be Demps. Urban Meyer leads his team to victory yet again. UF 33 UK 17. Brandon: FLA 34 UK 17.
|DeMarco Murray and Ryan Broyles|
have been very dangerous for OU.
#10 Wisconsin Badgers 3-0 vs Austin Peay Governors 2-1 (1-0)
Wisconsin saw a scare at Arizona Sate last week but pulled off the victory 20-19. I'm not really sold on the Badgers yet as they've struggled each week. They ended up beating UNLV 41-21 but struggled a bit against San Jose State. Their competition level droops down a bit as they host Austin Peay. The Badgers will start 4-0 but could have a long season in conference play. Wisc. 37 AP 16. Brandon: Wisc. 37 AP 14.
#12 LSU Tigers 3-0 (2-0) vs #22 West Virginia Mountaineers 3-0
#13 Utah Utes 3-0 (2-0) vs San Jose State Spartans 1-2
#14 Auburn Tigers 3-0 (1-0) vs #15 South Carolina Gamecocks 3-0 (1-0)
Finally we get to see just how good both of these schools are. The Gamecocks did upset then #22 Georgia, but I'm not sure just how good the Bulldogs are this year. I love this matchup between Auburn and Steve Spurrier's South Carolina squad. Alshon Jeffery is the star wideout for the Cocks. He has 306 of Stephen Garcia's 500 passing yards. If Auburn can keep him in check, all they'll have to worry about is the running game of Marcus Lattimore. I think the balance that Cameron Newton brings to the table on his home field will be the difference in this game. Auburn has too many weapons with their running game and the passing game compliments it very well. I like South Carolina to be a sleeper in the SEC this year, but I think they fall to Auburn in this one. UA 27 SC 19. Brandon: Aub. 27 SC 21.
#16 Arizona Wildcats 3-0 vs California Golden Bears 2-1
|Dayne Crist will be hungry for a win|
after the tough OT loss to MSU.
#18 Iowa Hawkeyes 2-1 vs. Ball State Cardinals 1-2
Iowa comes back home after the loss to Arizona and to a team on a two game losing streak. Ball State lost to Liberty at home and Purdue on the road. Traveling to Kinnick Stadium will not be fun for them. Field day for the Hawkeyes. Iowa 44 Ball State 10. Brandon: Iowa 37 Ball St. 7.
|Bernard Pierce will lead the way as Temple will try to take |
advantage of the youthful Penn State.
#22 Michigan Wolverines 3-0 vs. Bowling Green Falcons 1-2
Michigan struggled a bit against UMASS last week but I think that's a fluke. They'll regroup and be ready for Bowling Green. The Falcons lost their first two road games and I don't see this one being much different. They will show some promise on a couple drives but Denard Robinson will have his way with the BG defense. Mich. 38 BG 14. Brandon: Mich. 42 BG 28.
#23 Michigan State Spartans 3-0 vs. Northern Colorado Bears 2-1 (1-1)
MSU had a scare with coach Mike Dantonio suffering a heart attack after the exciting win over Notre Dame. He's okay and should be good to go against Northern Colorado. The Spartans fake field goal to throw for a touchdown gave them the overtime win over Notre Dame. That has to be exciting for the players and they should be all ready to build off of that. No problems this week against the Bears. MSU 38 NCU 13. Brandon: MSU 40 NCU 7.
#24 Missouri Tigers 3-0 vs Miami (OH) Redhawks 2-1 (1-0)
|Ryan Colburn will try to lead|
his Bulldogs to 3-0.
