Games to Watch This Weekend 14.3

College football is finally starting to get into the meat of the season and this weekend we'll get the opportunity to see a few games where teams will face their first legitimate opponents.  Here is a chronological look at where to point your eyeballs over the weekend.

Thursday
7:30pm
  • #5Auburn at #20 Kansas State (ESPN) - Watch for Auburn to assert it's powerful offense and run up the score against K-State's usually solid defense.  
8:25pm
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons (CBS) - The Bucs are looking for their first win of the season in a place that has been very difficult for visiting teams to find victories in.  If WRs Roddy White and Julio Jones are healthy, QB Matt Ryan could have a big day provided the Falcons can find someone able to run the ball.
Saturday - Looks like a fun one this week!
3:30pm
  • Rutgers at Navy (CBS Sports Network) - Look for Rutgers and QB Gary Nova to come back strong after a terribly disappointing game last week.  They'll have a tough time with Navy's triple option rushing attack but RU's defense is typically very stout against the run.
  • Florida at #3 Alabama (CBS) - Florida survived in a triple overtime against Kentucky last week but will face a much stiffer challenge against the Crimson Tide this week.  Could be the most exciting 20-3 game you've seen in a while.
  • Virginia at #21 BYU - What's up with Virginia?  They barely lose to highly ranked UCLA and then they beat a pretty decent L'Ville team.   This could be their toughest game so far as BYU has looked really pretty good this season.  Cougars QB Taysom Hill isn't a dark-horse Heisman candidate any longer, he has looked great this year and will put a lot of pressure on UVA's defensive secondary.
  • North Carolina at East Carolina - UNC was a popular sleeper pick before the season and while national sentiment has cooled on them somewhat they are still a talented team with potential.  Meanwhile nobody is hotter than East Carolina right now as they went into Blacksburg and took it to then #17 Virginia Tech Hokies last weekend (who themselves took it to Ohio State the week before).
7pm
  • Mississippi State at #8 LSU - Lots of people are high on Dan Mullen's MSU Bulldogs and their QB Dak Prescott this year but playing the Tigers at night in Death Valley which is not a favorable matchup but would pay huge dividends if they are even able to keep it close.  Could be a very fun game to watch.
7:30pm
  • #4 Oklahoma at West Virginia - Oklahoma is the favorite to come out of the Big 12 this year but West Virginia led by QB Clint Trickett (a transfer from FSU where his father is the Assistant Head Coach) has looked like a team eager to play the roll of dream crusher this season after a very close game against Alabama and two other solid performances.
8pm
  • #22 Clemson at #1 Florida State - FSU's QB and defending Heisman Trophy winner Jamies Winston does not make smart decisions off the football field.  He is currently under investigation for a sexual assault and this past week just happened to stand on a table on campus and yell some overtly aggressive sexual chants.  This most recent incident has found him suspended for the first half of Saturday night's game against Clemson.  Please see my previous article on Football needing to clean up its' act for my feelings about what should be done with Jamies here.  However, for the game at hand, keep an eye out for Clemson's traditionally high octane offense to try to sneak out to a lead as FSU is working with it's 2nd string QB during the first half resulting in their defense spending more time on the field than they are used to.  There will be a lot of fanfare around this one too as Clemson tries to regain some luster after a humiliating defeat to Georgia in their opener.
Sunday
1pm
  • San Diego at Buffalo - Could this be a preliminary AFC playoff matchup?  The Chargers just beat the defending Super Bowl champ Seahawks and Buffalo is alone at the top of the AFC East.
  • Washington at Philadelphia - In typical Desean Jackson style, he injured himself and is questionable for this week's game.  A game that is notable as it will be his return to Philly after he was surprisingly cut by the Eagles "for football reasons" and definitely not for hanging around with a highly suspect crowd and potentially flashing gang signs during games.  Oh also Washington's QB RGIII is injured and his replacement is better than him so it might be a good thing for them.  The Eagles are also coming off of two straight wins in which they were trailing by at least 14 points at some time during the 2nd half.
  • Green Bay at Detroit - An NFC North matchup with two 1-1 teams who have headlining Quarterbacks in Aaron Rogers and Matt Stafford looking to have banner years for their teams.  Can either establish a running game or defend the pass?
4pm
  • Denver at Seattle - Game of the Week! - It's a Super Bowl rematch.  I have to imagine that P.E.Y. has had this one circled on his calendar since he first got a chance to look at a calendar after the game ended in a crushing defeat for the Broncos.  Denver has theoretically improved their D by leaps and bounds and Seattle looked great in Week 1 but turned in a loss to San Diego last weekend.  Should be a fun game to watch!
That'll do it for this weekend folks.  Enjoy the games!
