With the first round of the BCS rankings out, it’s crazy to think we are nearing the last few weeks of the season. We saw some teams fall, hard, from the rankings (Louisville, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Georgia) and a few make some major moves up in the poll (Missouri, Auburn). It’s hard to know where exactly teams well land at the end of the year, but now that the upsets have started becoming a weekly occurrence in the Top 25, it’s sure fun to watch and see what predictions will come to fruition this season.
This week, there are some great match-ups around the leagues that we’re particularly excited for.
- Big 12: No. 10 Texas Tech vs. No. 15 Oklahoma
- Pac 12: No. 12 UCLA vs. No. 3 Oregon
- Big Ten: Penn State vs. No. 4 Ohio State
- SEC: No. 21 South Carolina vs. No. 5 Missouri
We’re used to seeing some high caliber SEC teams, but I think Missouri has most definitely been a surprise to most SEC East schools/fans this year and it will be very interesting to see how they fair vs. the Gamecocks this weekend. Penn State and Ohio State have always had some exciting games throughout their long history, and after PSU’s impressive win over Michigan plus having a bye week to prepare for the Buckeyes, it could turn out to be another great game between these Big Ten rivals.
