Another week with some really good matchups and some hard to pick winners. Ohio State and Michigan State will face off, with the winner likely being the only team who can take on Penn State for the Big 10 Title. Two ranked, one-loss SEC teams meet when Vanderbilt and Georgia go head-to-head.

Then the Big 12 is filled with more good matchups. Previously #1 Oklahoma doesn't get a break as they host #16 Kansas. Meanwhile, the new #1 Texas has another big game as they play host to #11 Missouri who only lost their first game this week. Any of the above could be the Game of the Week, but lets change our focus to the Mountain West on Thursday night.

Undefeated BYU is ranked 7th and will be traveling to face Texas Christian in this big Thurday night matchup. BYU has been ranked in the TSB top 10 since Week 5, but has moved very slowly from there with two unimpressive wins. Their early BCS hopes and plans for a 12-0 season may be in jeopardy based on TCU.

TCU may be the most underrated team right now. They picked up only one vote in the TSB Poll last week, but could easily be the best team in the Mountain West (ahead of both BYU and Utah). TCU is the only one of those three teams sporting a loss so far, but that loss came against Oklahoma at Oklahoma. In their six wins, they have manhandled every team with the exception of Colorado State who they had a close game with this past week.

A win for TCU puts them in perfect position to make a run at Utah in November for the Mountain West Conference Title. Could an 11-1 TCU make a run at a BCS berth, or would they be confined to the Las Vegas Bowl?
