CFB Wknd Preview and Picks: Texas, Again

It's the final weekend of games before the first BCS rankings are released. For a team like Missouri, it's now or never -- nothing like a game at No. 1 Texas to stake your season on.

Bama has a bit of a trap game vs. Ole Miss -- just ask Florida. Penn State will thump Michigan and it shouldn't do much for JoePa's strength of schedule. On the other end, among 1-loss teams, Oklahoma will get a boost for playing (and beating) a Kansas team in the Top 20. (Same for Georgia with a win over Vandy.)

(1) Texas over (11) Mizzou - GOTW
(2) Alabama over Ole Miss
(3) Penn St over Michigan
(4) Oklahoma over (16) Kansas
(6) USC over @Washington St
(7) Texas Tech over @Texas A&M
