The ranked match ups:
#24 Kansas State at #17 Missouri
#12 (and two-loss defending BCS title-holder) Alabama hosts #19 Mississippi State
#23 South Carolina at the Swamp and #22 Florida
Other games of note:
Penn St. at #9 Ohio State
#1 Oregon and QB Darron Thomas (pictured) take their space-aged offense to California and the Berkeley Bears.
The Irish host #14 Utah who is coming off that 47-7 thumping at the hands of TCU last weekend.
And speaking of which, one half of the BCS-busters, #3 TCU, will be hosting 7-2 San Diego State. After TCU beat Utah at Utah by 40, does installing the Aztecs as only 27 point underdogs show a measure of respect for Coach Brady Hoke's program?
The other half of the BCS-busters, #4 Boise St., played last night and walloped Idaho 52-14.
Georgia at #2 Auburn amid allegations that Auburn's star quarterback Cam Newton's father sought a six-figure payout from Miss St. in order for Newton to play there. An ugly situation that is, unfortunately, the dominant headline in the sport currently.
Texas hosts #10 Oklahoma State.
USC goes out to the desert and #18 Arizona.
No gaming advise this weekend but if you are on your way to Vegas and you happen upon this young lady, grab her, you are going to need her. Ask first, of course.
