Arizona State vs. Standford

The most intriguing game is Arizona State at Stanford.

The Sun Devils are coming off a wild win against Wisconsin and are ranked for the first time all year. They have a stingy defense, led by Will Sutton, one of the best defenders in the nation. The defense gives up just 15 points per game, while the offense is eighth in the nation in passing yards.

They will face a very tough test against Stanford.

This is Stanford's first big test, but they have looked dominant thus far. They have a very balanced attack and the Sun Devils will have to find a way to stop Ty Montgomery, who has 210 receiving yards and two touchdowns through two games.

If Sutton can collapse the pocket and make quarterback Kevin Hogan uncomfortable, the Sun Devils will have a real chance of pulling off the upset.

Arizona State will put up a big showing against Stanford.

Auburn vs. LSU

Auburn going up against No. 6 LSU should be intriguing. Auburn is quietly 3-0 and has been led, surprisingly, by their defense, which has given up just 17.7 points per game.

LSU will be their biggest challenge so far, even if the Tigers' defense hasn't been as stout as it usually is. They give up 19 points per game, fine numbers to be sure but not exactly dominant.

If Auburn's high-tempo offense can fluster LSU's defense, they will have a real chance. It's not easy going into Death Valley, and LSU is the big favorite. But the Tigers will have to stop the two-headed monster of Corey Grant and Tre Mason, who have combined for 436 rushing yards so far.

It says here LSU will win, but not before Auburn gives it a real scare.

Michigan vs. Notre Dame

Finally, a must-watch game is Michigan State at No. 22 Notre Dame. The Spartans are 3-0 and give up just 12 points per game. They haven't really played anyone of note, but their defense should give Tommy Rees fits.

Rees has been good, throwing for 969 yards and seven scores, but made too many mistakes when he played Michigan. If Michigan State can force Rees into throwing a few picks, they have a chance at the upset. If they win, they could find themselves ranked once again.
