With Week 7 on the brink, there are many teams that are looking at their match-up knowing it is a testament game.

In football, each week is a must-win due to the short schedule. This is especially true in college because of the BCS Standings.

Here are three teams that are going to show why they have the rankings that they do.



LSU is currently ranked first and hand been showing why of late. They have taken every opponent and dismantled them. Their wins have been more than convincing. They have been scoring at will and have a defense that stifles their opponent.

This week, they are going up against a Tennessee team that is no more than just decent this season.

The Volunteers have a gunslinger of a quarterback, Tyler Bray, who is called upon to make a lot of things happen for them. Bray has been outstanding this season, but LSU do not have to worry about him because he is ruled out of the match up.


Texas A&M

Texas A&M are facing a Baylor team that is very close to them and are marginally better than them.

This, however, does not matter because A&M are going to pull up a slight upset and propel themselves up further up the rankings.

Baylor’s quarterback Robert Griffin III is their number one offensive weapon and will be hard to shut down, especially with how weak Texas A&M’s passing defense has been.

A&M will surprise in that regard and will take the game.


Oklahoma State

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are both top 10 teams right now. Another thing that they have in common is they will have both beaten the Texas Longhorns after this week.

Oklahoma State is a team that the Longhorns did not want to meet after they were dragged through the mud against Oklahoma last week.

The Cowboys will do much of the same this week and will show why they are ranked number six.
