Last week was filled with upsets and runaway contests with the major beneficiaries being Alabama and Ohio State.
With this in mind, let us dive into another list of great games for next Saturday.
1. Auburn @ Georgia
The oldest continually played rivalry in the Deep South features the up-and-coming Plainsmen against the Bulldogs, who are riddled with question marks.
Baby's Loser: in a mild surprise, Auburn.
2. Stanford @ Southern California
Jim Harbaugh will not let his team suffer a let down after its win over Oregon, but the Trojans have a BCS Bowl in sight and will be ready for the Cardinal’s running game.
Baby's Loser: Stanford.
3. Iowa @ Ohio State
Fans seem ready to throw the Hawkeyes out with the bath water.
Don't believe it.
Ferentz will have Iowa ready to play for the Rose Bowl and Big 10 title.
Baby's Loser: close, Iowa.
4. Notre Dame @ Pittsburgh
Questions surround the future of Irish head coach Charlie Weis.
Pittsburgh has no outstanding attributes except for brute strength, which they will use to win this game.
Baby's Loser: in what could be the best game of the day, Notre Dame.
5. Alabama @ Mississippi State
The Maroons are stalking a signature win for coach Dan Mullen.
Expect the Bulldogs to be competitive in Starkville.
The Crimson Tide is extended, but secures another victory.
Baby's Loser: Mississippi State.
6. Texas Tech @ Oklahoma State
The Red Raiders annihilated the Cowboys last season and revenge will be on the mind of coach Mike Gundy.
Look for a much closer game than expected.
Baby's Loser: tight, Texas Tech.
7. Georgia Tech @ Duke
Alabama alum David Cutcliffe has drastically improved the Blue Devils’ fortunes this season as Duke seeks a small bowl.
The Yellow Jackets are hunting for the Orange Bowl.
Baby's Loser: Duke.
Saturday's Tough One: In Honor of Veteran's Day, Nov. 11
8. Virginia Military Institute @ The Army
In the past 92 years of this military rivalry, VMI owns only one win over the Black Knights.
The Keydets believe that this is their moment in the clash of north versus south.
Baby's Loser: still seeking payback for Appomattox, VMI.
Game of the Week
9. Utah @ Texas Christian
Despite a seemingly nationwide movement to vault the Horned Frogs into the BCS title game, the small detail of taking the Mountain West title away from Utah remains.
The Utes have won 29 of their last 31 games.
TCU can run and smother opponents with its defense.
Baby's Loser: in a thriller, Utah.
Baby Tate: 4-5.
Missed: Penn St, Oregon, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Minn.
This week, we have 18 people above and 23 below the Mendoza Line. Maybe that can't be the Mendoza Line!
7-2: Jordan (a regular participant in "Midnight at the Oasis" on Friday nights)
6-3: Kevin (a regular participant of "Midnight at the Oasis")
Say, maybe there is something in the water on Friday nights!

Two weeks ago we had no one under .500…go figure.
Thanks to everyone who participated last week.
A special thanks to Kenneth for his return and fine write-up, we have missed his great input.
Now, let's get back to our status of being the most knowledgeable group of prognosticators on the Bleacher Report!
