We're just days away from the start of the season. Get ready by having a look at the top games for each week. Here’s the Macho Rhino list of the biggest, must watch games each week of the 2010 college football season:
Week 1 (September 5) – Virginia Tech vs. Boise State at FedEx Field in Washington D.C. – The winner of this game enters the National Title talk.
Week 2 (September 11) – Miami at Ohio State – A rematch of the best BCS Championship game ever. The winner of this game will be set for a top 2 in the initial BCS standings.
Week 3 (September 18) – Georgia Tech at North Carolina – The most talented defense in the country faces the triple option. The winner will get a big confidence boost for the rest of the season.
Week 4 (September 23) – Miami at Pittsburgh – Our preseason favorites to win the ACC and Big East respectively collide in what could be a BCS match-up. It’s a big game for both conferences.
Week 5 (October 2) – Texas vs. Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas – Again the winner here gets in the driver’s seat for the South division of the Big 12.
Week 6 (October 9) – Florida State at Miami – Our preseason favorites in each division of the ACC collide in one of the best rivalry games in the country. Rarely is a FSU vs. The U not an entertaining game.
Week 7 (October 16) – Texas at Nebraska – Nebraska has been waiting and hyping this game for months so the rematch of last year’s Big 12 Championship will definitely be worth watching.
Week 8 (October 23) – Wisconsin at Iowa – These two are the top challengers to the Buckeyes and must win this game to have any hope at becoming Big Ten champs this year.
Week 9 (October 30) – Oregon at USC – For Lane Kiffin, he needs all the big wins he can get and playing at home against a Ducks team that’ll probably still be in the Top 10 when this game is played is big. The Ducks need to win to stay in the hunt for the Pac-10 title.
Week 10 (November 6) – Alabama at LSU – This is probably the Crimson Tide’s toughest game as it’s on the road at night in Baton Rouge and Florida and Auburn are home games. If the Tide survive this, they should head to the SEC Championship undefeated.
Week 11 (November 13) – Virginia Tech at North Carolina – This should be a slobber-knocker game as these two battle for supremacy in their division of the ACC. Butch Davis needs this win as a program booster and watch the Tar Heel defense contend with Tyrod Taylor and Ryan Williams of the Hokies will be interesting.
Week 12 (November 20) – Ohio State at Iowa – This is the de facto Big Ten Championship. These two could both be undefeated and make this a national semi-final type feeling with the winner positioning themselves for a trip to the BCS Championship.
Week 13 (November 27) – Boise State at Nevada – This could be all that stands between the Broncos playing for the BCS Championship or the most crushing defeat in school history. This all depends on winning week 1 against Virginia Tech though.
Week 14 (December 4) – Oregon at Oregon State – The Civil War was big last year when these two collided in Eugene. Should be just as big this year as the winner will take the last Pac-10 Championship.
Week 15 (December 11) – SEC Championship – The past few years have shown that the winner of this game will be the National Champion. Enough said.
