The third Saturday in November serves up many of the great rivalry games. With an eye to the all-important jockeying for BCS rankings, the spotlight this week will feature several classic rivalries.
1 . Ohio State @ Michigan
The Buckeyes have clinched a trip to the Rose Bowl so they have to come down emotionally. The Wolverines are no longer up to the speed of Lloyd Carr's teams in Ann Arbor. Baby's Loser: Michigan.
2. Oklahoma @ Texas Tech
Leach has waited a year for his revenge against Oklahoma. The Sooners ruined the Red Raiders' opportunity at the BCS Title in 2008. Baby's Loser, tight: Texas Tech.
3. Kentucky @ Georgia
Georgia could be riding for a fall. Feeling a little too good about the win over Auburn. The Wildcats are 6-4 just like the Bulldogs. Baby's Loser, close: Kentucky
4. Kansas State @ Nebraska
The Big 12 North Title is on the line as Bill Snyder tries to make it back to the top. The Cornhuskers have strong play on the defensive line. Baby's Loser: Kansas State.
5. The Air Force @ Brigham Young
The Cougars like to pass. The Falcons run extremely well. BYU may be looking ahead to Utah. Baby's Loser, in what could be the best game of the day: The Air Force.
6. Virginia @ Clemson
The Tigers must win this contest in order to qualify for the ACC Championship in Tampa against Ga Tech. Clemson coach Frank Howard called Virginia "the white meat" of the schedule as the Tigers never lost to the Cavaliers until 1990. Baby's Loser: Virginia.
7. California @ Stanford "The Big Game"
Known as "The Big Game" as the West Coast answer to "The Game" played by Harvard and Yale. All signs point to the Bears upsetting the Cardinal. Baby's Loser: California.
Saturday's Tough One Of The Year
8. Harvard @ Yale "The Game"
Ivy League action, one of the greatest school rivalries, no matter the activity. The Elis have the home field and the Crimson could be emotionally spent. Baby's Loser: Yale.
Game Of The Week
9. Louisiana State @ Mississippi "The Magnolia Bowl"
The Tigers are better than Ole Miss but, the Rebels have more to prove and will play with more intensity than LSU. Baby's Loser, in a classic thriller: LSU
Baby Tate Went 8-1 last week, missing Stanford. For the year 72-27.
After the worst week of the season where only two people were above 5-4, last week the experts at Baby's Losers turned it completely around by having only one person under 6-3 and he predicted the upset of Stanford over Southern California.
In fact, it was surprising how many people saw the downfall of the Trojans coming last week.
Saturday's Tough One continued to live up to its reputation. VMI led The Army halfway through the fourth quarter before surrendering late, 22-17 in a highly competitive game.
This week's choice for the tough one will no doubt be the toughest call of the year.
Run Tell Matt posted his second 9-0 record this season. But, even he had to confess to taking " a wild guess" with Saturday's Tough One of VMI and The Army.
The Game of the Week saw a great performance by TCU, and virtually all the prognosticators correctly saw the outcome.
Congratulations to everyone for bouncing back so strongly. You were challenged and responded in a big way.
