College Football Weekend Preview

LSU at Kentucky
We possibly have an upset alert here. With the way this season has been you can no longer look past anyone. Kentucky has the offense to stay with LSU. Andre Woodson and Co. will need to bring their best game so far if they want any piece of the Tigers.

The Pick: LSU

Texas A&M at Texas Tech
The two Texas rivals will square in what is basically an elimination game for a Big XII Title berth. Stephen McGee looks to lead A&M with his arm and legs, while the Red Raiders' high-powered offense will try to make the Aggies keep with the tempo.

The Pick: Texas Tech

Washington at Arizona St.
Washington looks to be Arizona St.'s first "true" test. The Huskies are looking to bust out of their 3 game losing streak.

The Pick: Arizona St.

Wisconsin at Penn St.
A win here would be pretty big for both teams. Wisconsin was finally taken down by upstart Illinois and Penn St. has struggled recently. Loser will most likely be eliminated from Rose Bowl contention.

The Pick: Wisconsin

Auburn at Arkansas
Pivotal SEC match up this week. If any of these two teams want a piece of LSU for the SEC West Title, this is a must win. Darren McFadden looks to continue to be the Heisman favorite and Auburn looks to show the Florida win was no fluke.

The Pick: Arkansas

Upset of the Week
Sorry, no upset for this week.

D-1AA (FCS) Game of the Week
Southern Illinois at Northern Iowa
This may as well be the Gateway Conference Championship Game. This is a big match up between the 3rd and 7th ranked FCS teams. Two electrifying QBs will go at it in S.Ill's Nick Hill and N.IA's Eric Sanders.

The Pick: Southern Illinois

Game of the Week
Missouri at Oklahoma
We may have the Big XII Championship preview on our hands here. Mizzou proved they're one of the elite Big XII teams after pummeling Nebraska and a win here would only propel a potential magic season even more. I expect this FSN game, which should be on ABC or ESPN, to be down to the wire.

The Pick: Oklahoma
