The Big 'Un: No. 1
Let me count the ways this rules...
1. Biggest/best game of the season.
2. Will likely determine (at least) one half of the BCS title game.
3. Rematch of last year's most important game of the season.
4. Showcases 2 of the Top 5 Heisman guys (Smith, Ginn).
I know UT is playing at home. I know that everyone still has questions about OSU's revamped defense.
But I'm picking
OSU's offense is better than UT's defense more than UT's offense is better than OSU's defense. Did that make sense? Basically, I think it'll be a shootout, much like the Rose Bowl's was last year.
Then there's the qualitative factor of REVENGE. Losing in
So I'm saying
As for the rest of the Top 25:
(My second choice: Fresno State over No. 20 Oregon.
Game of the Week: No. 24
Intriguing Game of the Week: No. 18 Clemson at
The rest (Sorry, no upsets)
6 WVA over
8 LSU over
9 FSU over
13 L'ville over
16 VA Tech over UNC (at UNC)
23 TCU over UC-Davis
And, finally, in my own personal hell: I can't shake the feeling that Northwestern is going to lose its home opener to 1-AA powerhouse
