Weekend Picks

The Civil War
It's our final weekend of College Football before Bowl Season begins and there are a few games that can still shake things up at the top of the standings.

Noon
-Rutgers at #24 West Virginia
on ABC
Freshman Chas Dodd will try to lead Rutgers to a huge upset win over the Mountaineers in this game.  West Virginia has to win and hope Connecticut loses for a chance at a BCS bowl berth.  Which is a joke because there are so many more deserving teams than either 8-3 WVU or 7-4 UConn.

3:30
-#2 Oregon at Oregon St.
on ABC
The Ducks have to travel to their biggest rival Oregon St and pull off a win in order to secure their spot in the BCS National Championship.  Watch for a close game early before the speed and tenacity of Oregon overwhelm the Beavers.

4:00
-#1 Auburn vs. #19 South Carolina 
on CBS in the Atlanta, Georgia Dome
The SEC Championship game pits Cam Newton and Auburn's hopes for a place in the BCS National Championship against the 'Ol Ball Coach Steve Spurrier and Freshman sensation, running back Marcus Lattimore.  Newton was recently cleared to play by the NCAA despite allegations of payoffs.  

7:45
-#21 Florida St. vs. #15 Virginia Tech
on ESPN
This is FSU's first season after legendary coach Bobby Bowden retired and Jimbo Fischer already has them competing for the ACC championship.  A win here could be the start of a new dynasty in Tallahassee however, Tyrod Taylor, Ryan Williams, and the Hokie coach Frank Beamer probably have something else in mind.

8:00
-#9 Oklahoma vs. #13 Nebraska
Big 12 Championship on ABC in Arlington, TX in Cowboy Stadium
Bo Pelini will take the Cornhuskers into the Big 12 Championship for their final game as a member of the Big 12.  Oklahoma and Bob Stoops, who have been the dominant team in the Big 12 since the league's inception, will do their best to earn the Big 12 automatic BCS bid.

Yeah I think it really captures the animosity between the two programs.
