With another wild week of college football on tap, what better way to get the Saturday full of action underway than with the boys of ESPN’s College Gameday?

Lee Corso, Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard make this show one of the most enjoyable in all of sports and one of the most fun-to-watch programs on television.

The show comes live from Eugene, Ore. in Week 12 because of the stellar matchup between the No. 2 Oregon Ducks and the No. 13 Stanford Cardinal. With such a huge Top 25 matchup, there is bound to be plenty of great insider segments and even a laugh or two.

With so many great games this week, it will be great to hear the boys of College Gameday breaking down the entire slate of action.

Plus, we really can’t wait for Corso to just be crazy!

What: ESPN College GameDay

Location: Eugene, Ore.

Coverage: Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN


Upset Special: No. 12 Oklahoma at West Virginia, 7 p.m. ET

Despite the fact that Oklahoma has finally started to figure out exactly what kind of team it truly is, an opponent as enigmatic as the West Virginia Mountaineers could be the downfall of the Sooners in Week 12.

If for any reason Oklahoma doesn’t come out and destroy West Virginia from the start, the Mountaineers’ 12th-ranked offensive unit (40 points per game) will put the Sooners on their heels and on upset alert.

In what should be an all-out offensive war, West Virginia will take Oklahoma to its limits and push them for a win. While this would be considered an upset, anyone that knows the overrated Big 12 and overrated Sooners saw this coming a mile away.

Prediction: West Virginia 42, Oklahoma 33.

Stone-Cold Lock: Anyone Ranked from the SEC

While the schedule makers can claim they didn’t do this on purpose, the majority of the ranked teams in the SEC this week have ridiculously easy matchups. Besides LSU taking on Ole Miss, the SEC is such a cakewalk that betting sites have turned the odds off in the games.

From No. 4 Alabama taking on Western Carolina to No. 9 South Carolina squaring off with Wofford, if you can find a place for you to make a wager on one of the Top 25 SEC teams, take it and run!

Six teams in the SEC are in the Top 10 of the BCS rankings this week and all six will walk away with wins because of amazingly-timed easy games. These SEC schedule makers know exactly how to make their conference look strong.

Prediction: Alabama, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Texas A&M and South Carolina all win.
