College Football Week 4.

Fall is here. Officially. That always brings a smile to my face. Last weeks games were great. Was anyone REALLY surprised USC lost to Washington? I wasn’t, the Huskies were VERY primed to play their head coaches former squad. So far we have had some great games, great upsets and great performances by college football’s best players. Last night another Top 5 team fell with S. Carolina beating #4 Ole Miss. Here are some other games to look out for this weekend:

LSU vs. Miss. State– After Ole Miss losing last night, the other top 10 team that has a lot of questions surrounding it is LSU. Sure, every year you have to think LSU is a SEC contender, but this year no one knows too much about them. After a hard fought win over Washington, LSU has talks of a potential SEC championship. Mississippi State is 2-1 on the season with 2 of those games coming against conference foes. The Bulldogs are still a team in a rebuilding state of mind. Watch for their defense to keep things close with LSU pulling away at the end.
My Prediction: LSU 31 Mississippi State 17
*Outcome: LSU 30 Miss State 26- MSU was 1 yard away from pulling off a BIG upset on Saturday, but it didn’t happen.

Miami @ Virginia Tech: This could be the game of the week. Virginia Tech already has one loss on the season and needs to keep winning to secure its chances for a BCS game. Miami is the talk of the college football world. Jacory Harris and the Canes have opened the season with 2 ranked opponents and beaten them both. If they can keep it up, the Canes will be looking at a Top 5 ranking with an October 3rd showdown against perennial power Oklahoma. This should be an entertaining game with Miami winning a close one.
My Prediction: Miami 35 Virginia Tech 24
*Outcome: Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7- I guess it was too early to start believing the Miami hype. They were dominated.

Cal @ Oregon: I am usually not a fan of Pac-10 games, but this one could grab the nations attention. Cal is lead by Heisman front-runner Jahvid Best, who has scored 8 touchdowns this season and leads the Pac-10 in rushing. Oregon has been in the headlines for the wrong reason at the beginning of the season, but don’t let that fool you. The Ducks have the offense to keep up with anyone in the country. Outzen Stadium is one of the toughest places to play, so look for that to make a difference on Saturday.
My Prediction: Oregon 24 Cal 23
*Outcome: Oregon 42 Cal 3- I picked Oregon to win, but not like this. Pure domination.

Texas Tech vs. Houston: Before the season started, who would have thought Houston would be favored in this game? Well after their win over Oklahoma State and Texas Tech’s loss to Texas, the Cougars are a top 20 team. Case Keenum is a Heisman contender and leads the highest scoring offense in the nation. Texas Tech learned a lot about their quarterback Taylor Potts after their game with the Longhorns. If the Red Raiders can find a consistent run game, they will have a chance to keep the high scoring Cougars off of the field.
My Prediction: Texas Tech 48 Houston 44
*Houston 29 Texas Tech 28- Probably the best game of the weekend. I wasn’t too surprised by the outcome.

Upset Pick of the Week: Arkansas 27 Alabama 24– Some people think Alabama is the best team in the nation. The Razorbacks will expose the Crimson Tide and win in Tuscaloosa.
*Outcome: Alabama 35 Arky 7- another blowout. All of the “big” games were disappointments.

Game No One Cares About: UCONN 44 Rhode Island 13
*Outcome: Uconn 52 Rhode Island 10- I wasn’t too far off.
