College Football Weekend Preview

Auburn at LSU
Just imagine if Auburn knocked off LSU here and took the SEC West lead. Auburn has been playing pretty well lately, but LSU is looking to avenge their loss against Kentucky from last week. LSU's Defense should give fits to Brandon Cox and Auburn's Offense.

The Pick:

Oregon at Washington
This may be a tough game for the Ducks. Washington usually plays pretty well at home and can match up individually with Oregon. The secondary could give Dennis Dixon some trouble as well.

The Pick: Washington

Texas Tech at Missouri
This is a big game for both teams as each is vying for a Big XII Championship appearance. Texas Tech's Offense can score no doubt on Mizzou but can their defense slow down Chase Daniel and the rest of the Tigers' Offense? Expect a game in the 40's.

The Pick: Missouri

Michigan at Illinois
I would have to say this is a must win for both teams if either of them want to contend with OSU for the Big Ten Title. Michigan has been on a roll lately after their embarrassing start to the season. Illinois's talent and overall athleticism will help them play with Michigan.

The Pick: Michigan

Upset of the Week
Colorado over Kansas
Kansas is a good team but other than Kansas St., they really haven't been challenged this season. Should be a pretty good game in Boulder.

D-1AA (FCS) Game of the Week
McNeese St. over Nichols St.
This game will probably determine the Southland Champion.

Game of the Week
Florida at Kentucky

Can Kentucky make it back to back big time wins at home? I have a feeling that the winner of this game will probably be vying with South Carolina for the SEC East Title. Florida desperately needs a win here if they want to play in the SEC Championship or want a BCS Title berth for that matter. We may have another classic here like last weeks game in Lexington.

The Pick: Florida
