ESPN 7:00PM - South Carolina @ NC State
Time to get off the pot meets time to get off the pot.
Head Coach Tom O’Brien, entering his third year leading the Wolfpack, is looking for his first winning season. Fourteen returning starters, an improved offense, and eight home games have the pack faithful expecting a big step forward.
On the other sideline the Ole' Ball coach (Steve Spurrier), after four mediocre years in Columbia, has everyone scratching their head.
This is probably the make or break season. With UGA and Ole Miss coming up in two of the next three games, the Gamecocks must get off to a good start so this is a must-win game.
If so. QB Stephen Garcia can be more consistent and finally give Spurrier a signal caller to run his show. The fighting roosters could move up in the pecking order.
ESPN 10:15 PM – No. 16 Oregon @ No. 14 Boise State
Pac 10 Heir-Apparent Meets BCS Buster—Loser Go Home.
Jr. QB Jeremiah Masoli has been named to several preseason watch lists and could be special if he remains healthy. First year Head Coach Chip Kelly is counting on it, as his Ducks face their hardest road test on the Blue Turf at Boise
If they get by this one and can navigate a favorable conference schedule, the Ducks could be swimming in Pasadena.
The Broncos have Pasadena plans of their own, if second year starter-so. QB Kellen Moore can lead the Broncos past Oregon.
Look for an unbeaten season and another BCS snub.
