Stanford-Oregon-640

Saturday Football Discussion (11/12)

Last week we saw #1 against #2 and this week we’ve got another battle of top ten teams as Oregon invades Palo Alto. Some links to check out that we posted this week are the series of how we felt the Big 12, Big East and Big Ten would finish with predictions for the remainder of the season. I also took a stab at projecting all of the 2011/2012 bowl games. Let’s not forget the discussion of who might replace Houston Nutt as the head man at Ole Miss. Also, make sure you check out my SEC Predictions and our Q&A with The Recruiting Eagle about the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.”

It’s already been a pretty busy week on the field as there has been more #MACtion then anybody could possibly consume as the MAC has already put forth four games including a game where both teams scored over 60 points. Virginia Tech beat Georgia Tech in a pretty good game on Thursday and South Florida put the beatdown on the Cuse on Friday. Oh yeah, Case Keenum has also played this week and his team scored over 70 against Tulane.

Here are the top match-ups this week. Feel free to throw some predictions in the comments section or just comment on the games as they go on. It’s my birthday today so I’m hoping Mark Richt gives me a victory as a present.
