This game might not get as much attention as most other games, but it has the potential to be one of the tightest games of the day. Mississippi State and Northwestern are two teams that have some weaknesses, but they both play fundamentally sound football. Let’s take a closer look at this interesting under the radar matchup.
Both Louisiana-Monroe and Ohio enter this game with an 8-4 record on the year. This is a matchup of two teams who aren’t exactly used to being in bowl games. Louisiana-Monroe will be playing in the first bowl game in program history. The Ohio Bobcats just picked up their first bowl win ever in program history last season. How do these teams match up in this one?
Duke hasn’t been in a bowl game since 1995, and the Blue Devils haven’t won a bowl game since 1991. The Blue Devils went 6-6 this year, and they’ll take on the Cincinnati Bearcats in the Belk Bowl. Duke finished the regular season with four straight losses, while Cincinnati won four of their last five games. Let’s take a closer look at this contest.
The Cincinnati Bearcats and UConn Huskies will finish out their regular season with a meeting in Connecticut this Saturday afternoon. UConn has had a disappointing season, but they are coming off a big upset win over Louisville. Cincinnati has had a good year, but they were upset 10-3 at home by Rutgers two weeks ago. That loss ruined their chances of winning the conference title. Let’s take a look at this Big East matchup.
After a slightly disappointing 5-2 start to the season, Oklahoma has won four straight to get to 9-2 on the year. The Sooners came from behind to beat Oklahoma State in the Bedlam rivalry last weekend. TCU upset Texas in a key rivalry game last week as well. The Horned Frogs are looking to end their first season in the Big 12 with an upset win at home.
There is always tons of passion when these two teams meet, but there will be even more on the line this week when the Gators battle the Seminoles. Florida is back in the national title picture after last weekend’s upsets at the top of the rankings. Florida State doesn’t seem to have a chance for the title, but they are 10-1 and looking to finish off a terrific regular season. Can the Seminoles spoil the Gators hopes at playing for a national title?
Rivalry week in college football is here, and the big rivalry in the state of Georgia is between the Bulldogs and the Yellow Jackets. No one could have expected it a couple weeks ago, but the Georgia Bulldogs are right in the thick of the BCS title chase now, and they can’t afford a slip up here. The Yellow Jackets would love nothing more than to ruin their chance at the title.
Before the season, many expected this to be a game that would play a role in deciding the national champion. As it turns out, Arkansas has completely fallen apart this year, and LSU lost to both Florida and Alabama in SEC play. The game doesn’t mean as much nationally, but these teams still hate each other and you can expect both teams to fight very hard for a victory.
The USC Trojans beat UCLA by a score of 50-0 last season. That ridiculous beat down in this rivalry game may have been the last straw that sent Rick Neuheisel packing. Jim Mora Jr. is the new coach at UCLA, and he has instantly turned this team around in a big way. USC was the top ranked team in the nation going into the year, but they have had a disappointing year. No one is expecting a lopsided game this time around. USC is a four-point favorite heading into this big game.
Michigan hosts Iowa in a key game for the Wolverines as they chase a Big Ten regular season title. Denard Robinson is listed as questionable for this game, so the oddsmakers haven’t put out a line on this game. Needless to say, whether Robinson plays or not is a very big deal. Let’s take a look at how this game might play out.
