The Duke Blue Devils escaped a strong effort from North Carolina earlier this week at home. Now, they must travel to take on another team that they don’t like one bit. The Maryland Terrapins always seem to give Duke their best effort. Maryland started the year on a roll, but they have been cold of late. Can they make it difficult on the Blue Devils on Saturday in front of their fans in College Park?
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.
SEC East rivals collide in Lexington on Saturday night to finish off “Rivalry Week” on ESPN. The Tennessee Volunteers continue arguably the hardest stretch of their entire season when they pay a visit to the #2 team in the land, the Kentucky Wildcats.
