FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - SEPTEMBER 17: Quarterback Jacory Harris #12 of the Miami Hurricanes scrambles against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Land Shark Stadium on September 17, 2009 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  (Photo by Doug Benc/Getty Images)


No. 4 Ole Miss (-3) at South Carolina 

Thursday night broadcasts are the best thing that's happened to college football since the invention of the forward pass. Untested Reb's getting no respect from oddsmakers.




Georgia Tech (-3) at North Carolina 

How much mojo did Tech have at halftime of the Clemson game? In four quarters of football they went from a team looking to crash the top five to an unranked also ran. Could only happen in college football. 

South Florida (+14) at No. 18 Florida State

Lot of juice taken out of this one with the Grothe injury. Still an interesting matchup. Kudos to Bowden for giving Bulls a chance to enter the "Top-Three" club in Florida. Another nice inter-conference matchup on top of that. 

Fresno State (+16) at No. 14 Cincinnati

Always interesting to watch these non-BCSer's play against a ranked BCS conference team. 

3:30 SLOT 

No. 9 Miami (-3) at No. 11 Virginia Tech

Hokies would have been favored by 10 if this was the preseason. Game of the week here. Top half of ACC providing most of the entertainment so far this season. 

No. 6 Cal (-6) at Oregon 

USC loss gives this a game a ton of juice. Race for Rose Bowl should be a roller-coaster ride. Cal wins big here, then gets clobbered by USC at home. 

No. 16 TCU (+3) at Clemson

Looks like oddsmakers don't want to touch another Mountain West team. Gonna be hard to watch much of this with the Miami and Cal games going on at the same time.

Arkansas (+15) at No. 2 Alabama

Give me Arkansas with the points. Alabama may be dazed with sugar after feasting on cupcakes for two weeks. Did you know Ryan Mallet is taller than Shaquille O'Neal? Great matchup of the two new young guns in the SEC. Alabama would have won the national championship last year if they had benched John Parker Wilson and played Greg McElroy. 


Iowa (+10) at No. 5 Penn State

No blockbusters Saturday night. I guess Brent Musberger and Kirk Herbstreit take this one. Only a Big Ten fan could enjoy this. Why is Penn State ranked fifth? 

Arizona State (+12) at  No. 21 Georgia

Try this one. Unexpectedly, this year's Georgia team has been a lot more entertaining than last year's. 

Texas Tech (+1) at Houston

Should be a good one. Third solid BCS, non-BCS matchup on TV this weekend.   Been hearing a lot about Houston. Will be nice to get a look. 

Enjoy everybody!!!!
