    As we hit the halfway mark, things are about to get ugly and very controversial.

    Yes, one team (Arkansas) is ranked, while the other one (Texas A&M) remains to be out of the spotlight. However, both teams are 3-1, and this game is being played in neutral territory.  

    I think it’ll be a lot closer than people are considering, and the Aggies will leave Razorback fans with no nails, after this nail-biting game.

Florida State vs. Miami

    Another state matchup with two ranked teams.

    However, Florida State will surely give Miami (FL) something to worry about. Florida State’s overall rankings are about the same as Miami’sso it will, for sure, be a game to TiVo or watch.

Southern Miss vs. East Carolina

2 of 4

    Southern Miss running back Desmond Johnson has been suspended for Saturday's Conference USA showdown against East Carolina for a “violation of team policy.”

    Johnson leads the Golden Eagles with 296 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He's also caught a team-high of 14 passes.  

    Southern Miss (4-1) hosts East Carolina (2-2), and will more than likely be upset by East Carolina as their lead running back is not available.

Michigan vs. Michigan State

3 of 4

    COLUMBUS, OH - SEPTEMBER 25:  Joe Bauserman #14 of the Ohio State Buckeyes runs with the ball against the Eastern Michigan Eagles at Ohio Stadium on September 25, 2010 in Columbus, Ohio.  Ohio State won 73-20. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)

    One state, two undefeated teams, but only one winner.  

    This will not only be a close game, but it should also be a game full of pride and energy. However, as stated, only one team will come out on top. and that team should be No. 18-ranked Michigan.  

    Michigan’s overall rankings are extraordinary in comparison, but with an outstanding record in rushing yards, they should prevail.  

LSU vs. Florida

4 of 4

    Granted, LSU is ranked higher than Florida heading into Week 6.

    By the end of this game on Saturday, the tables should turn.  Florida will prevail and become 5-1.  

    Yes, LSU is undefeated, but Florida has only one loss, and it was to a notorious team, at that. Coming off a 31-6 loss against top-ranked Alabama (5-0), the 4-1 Florida Gators look to make a comeback against another Top-12 team, LSU.  

    LSU is coming off an equally ugly 16-14 win at home against Tennessee, a team that remains out of the polls.  For the record, Florida beat Tennessee 31-17.

    With much more at stake since the BCS polls will be released Sunday, the vicious side of teams are definitely going to be coming out more, along with the tears. Prepare for some upsets and expect the unexpected.
