In a weekend that boasts a less than remarkable slate of matchups, the one game that sticks out to me the most is #11 Michigan (6-0) at #23 Michigan State (4-1).
Rarely do early-season showdowns actually live up to the hype, but there’s not a doubt in my mind that Florida State-Oklahoma will.
Rookie middle linebacker Greg Jones has come a long way in a short time with the Giants. And he’s about to face his toughest test yet.
Mark Ingram ran for two scores to break the Alabama career touchdown record, and the No. 15 Crimson Tide rolled past seventh-ranked Michigan State 49-7 on Saturday in the most lopsided Capital One Bowl in history.
They’re a bit like circling buzzards. The one-loss teams are hanging around the fringe, waiting and hoping for something bad to happen to the four undefeated teams at the front of the BCS line.
10. Nebraska (8-1): The Cornhuskers played Iowa State without quarterback Taylor Martinez and were lucky to come out alive in their 31-30 overtime win.
Michigan State at Iowa is the best game of the weekend. It’s clear that the Big 10 is the finest conference in the nation and here we are with another classic showdown.
10. Ohio State (7-1): Unfortunately, Ohio State will need for a million things to go their way for them to accomplish the goals they had coming into the season.
Number 1 has now lost three weeks in a row. This time around it was the top ranked BCS team Oklahoma dropping a prime time inter-conference game to rival Missouri.
Auburn jumped two spots to No. 3 behind top-ranked Oregon and Boise State in the media poll Sunday, and Missouri vaulted 11 spots to No. 7.
When the first official BCS rankings were released Sunday the Sooners took the top spot. Their prize is a trip to Missouri to take on the defensive-minded Tigers.
National champion Duke and fellow Final Four participant Michigan State are among the 28 teams on Madison Square Garden’s 2010-11 men’s college basketball schedule.
10. Utah (6-0): It’s just not the record that impresses me – because they don’t play the best of competition – it’s the team, and the way they play on both sides of the ball.
10. Michigan State (6-0): The Spartans are another team that made a huge statement on Saturday with their convincing win over rival Michigan at the Big House.
I realize anything can happen in an SEC game. But I never thought there was any way Alabama would actually lose to South Carolina.
