Ncaa Preview Week 10
October 31, 2007
Thursday Night Game:
Virginia Tech (11) at Georgia Tech Letís see if the Hokies can hold onto the game this week after losing to Matt Ryan last Thursday night (14-10). VT is 6-2 and GT is 5-3. Can the Yellow Jackets pull the upset? They have no RB. Starter Tashard Choice is having surgery and will miss the game, and backup RB Rashaun Grant may be out for the season. Georgia Techís running game depends on true freshman Jonathan Dwyer. He has 281 yards and 7 TDs this year, but VaTech can lose twice in a row, can they? I am taking the upset: Georgia Tech beats Virginia Tech 14-13.
Wisconsin (21) at THE Ohio State University (1) The Buckeyes solidified their number one ranking by crushing Penn State 37-17 last week in Happy Valley. I just want to ask those Penn State students one question: How do you abandon your team and leave before the game is over? I thought PSU students had more class than that! The visiting 7-2 Badgers will attempt to beat OSU at The Horseshoe. No chance in hell! Penn State beat Wisconsin 38-7 four weeks ago. PJ Hill will get crushed by the best defense in college football. Bucks win 35-6.
Nebraska at Kansas (8) Can the Cornhuskers (4-5) defeat the Jayhawks (8-0)? No way. If Kansas can beat the Aggies in College Station, which they did last week 19-11, then the Jayhawks can certainly handle Nebraska. Kansasís rushing attack leads the way to victory: 28-14.
Florida State at Boston College (2) The Eagles looked shaky last week against Virginia Tech, but Matt Ryan helped his team and his Heisman candidacy with a spectacular final 2 minutes of the game. Florida State is 5-3. The only notable team they beat this season has been Alabama. Matt Ryan outplays QB Drew Weatherford. BC wins 24-10.
Arizona State (4) at Oregon (5) This goes without saying that this game is the match up of the week. It will be nationally televised by ESPN; FSN still has coverage in parts of the West Coast and Arizona and New Mexico. ASU QB Rudy Carpenter has a sprained right thumb, but will still play. Dennis Dixon will be the star for the Ducks. Ducks win the game: 31-20.
LSU (3) at Alabama (17) Can Nick Sabanís team beat that of Les Miles? Yes. Look for riots in the streets of Tuscaloosa after this game. John Parker Wilson and DJ Hall connect for two TDs. Early Doucet will try to play spoiler, but Bamaís interception happy secondary will show up at home. Crimson Tide wins 40-37 in Overtime.
Random Comments of the Week: Undefeated Hawaii (14) has a Bye week.
Eugene Jarvis ran the ball 19 times for 156 yards and a TD against Central Michigan. He is now third in NCAA FBS for total rushing yards, behind Tulane Matt Forte and UCFís Kevin Smith, who only has 1 yard on Eugene.
