College Football Week 9 picks anyone? It's never too early in the week to take a look at the key games this weekend and get the blood boiling a little bit.
Can Auburn avoid another No. 1 collapse and stay on the throne this week at Mississippi?
How about No. 20 South Carolina? Been a pretty tumultuous three weeks for the Gamecocks, who beat then-No. 1 Alabama, lost to Kentucky and barely outlasted Vanderbilt in consecutive weeks.
Tennessee, trying to get back to national relevance, will invade Columbia this weekend for an SEC showdown.
In the Big Ten, No. 5 Michigan State will travel to No 18 Iowa in a key battle as the season winds down.
No. 6 Missouri, coming off its huge upset of Oklahoma last week, heads to Lincoln to face No. 14 Nebraska in the Big 12.
And No. 2 Oregon heads to USC Saturday night in a game with all kinds of intriguing possibilities.
This one will go a long way to determining the BCS title-game picture, and will serve as the national championship of sorts for the disappointing Trojans.
Here are some predictions for this weekend's games.
