BABY'S LOSERS 10/11/08
1) LSU @ FLORIDA
Let's put all the talk aside here. This is a battle between the past two national champions. In the best game of the year, Baby's Loser in Overtime, LSU.
2) PENN STATE @ WISCONSIN
Last week we all watched the giant hulks that stalk Camp Randall. If the Badgers control the line they will win. Baby's Loser, Wisconsin.
3) ARIZONA STATE @ SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
Prior to the season this game would settle the PAC10. Now it is two teams with one conference loss. Baby's Loser, Ariz. St.
4) TENNESSEE @ GEORGIA
The word around town is that Fulmer knows how to handle Richt. Are the Bulldogs tough enough to rebound and win one? Baby's Loser, Tennessee.
5) MINNESOTA @ ILLINOIS
Ol' Zook isn't ready to hand over that repeat trip to the Rose Bowl just yet. The 5-1 Golden Gophers play 'em tough. Baby's Loser, Minnesota.
6) SOUTH CAROLINA @ KENTUCKY
The old ball coach heads up to bluegrass-land to take on the surprising Wildcats who nearly took out Alabama. Baby's Loser, Kentucky.
7) NEBRASKA @ TEXAS TECH
What will it be Cornhuskers? Lay down and quit, or stand up like the great teams of 1962-2001? Leach's marauders await. Baby's Loser, Nebraska.
GAME OF THE WEEK
8)OKLAHOMA VS. TEXAS @ THE COTTON BOWL
Red River Shootout! State Fair Game! Border War! Plenty of adjectives to describe this great and intense rivalry over the years.
I like to pull the leg of the Texas fans in my articles but they know I respect the Longhorns. What they may not realize is that I've been a longtime fan of the burnt Orange, long before most of them were a twinkle in their Daddy's eye.
I had Oklahoma No. 2 in my preseason poll, and simply moved them up to No. 1 when Sou Cal collapsed at Oregon State.
Both have great players, excellent coaching, intense defenses and either could win the national championship this season. Colt McCoy is a sensational quarterback but, I give a slight edge to Sam Bradford in this clash of titans. Baby's Loser, in a close one, Texas.
