Let’s Get This Football Season Rolling!


Okay, the preseason is over. Not that major college football has one, but the first two or three weeks of play typically feature games between Top 25 teams and small conference foes, making for perfect tune up games before league play kicks in. Still, a quick survey of this weekend’s action shows that intraconference activity isn’t in full swing, while several regional contests are worth noting.

Let’s take a look at four games worth watching this weekend:

college footballMississippi at South Carolina – Ole Miss is No. 4, one of three SEC teams in the Top 4. The Rebels get their first real test of the season when they visit the Gamecocks, a team that narrowly lost to the No. 21 Georgia Bulldogs on the road. I’m going with the upset, picking South Carolina to knock off Ole Miss tonight.

South Florida at Florida State – The Bulls have yet to be challenged this season, rolling up three blow out wins against minor league opponents. The No. 18 Seminoles were impressive on the road last week, knocking of then No. 7 BYU, 54-28. Though I think the Bulls have what it takes to win, they haven’t been tested which means that by the end of the third quarter, FSU will be ahead for good.

Miami at Virginia Tech – One of the best match ups of the season as far as ACC play goes, the Hurricanes are starting to look like the Miami team of old: fearsome. Thankfully, the team is much more disciplined under Randy Shannon who appears to be heading for a breakthrough season this year. I like the Canes over the Hokies at Blacksburg.

North Carolina at Georgia Tech – Just how good are the Tarheels? That may be proven on the road this weekend when they take on a tough Yellow Jackets team who is coming off of a loss to the Miami Hurricanes. Ranked at No. 22, North Carolina has a perfect opportunity to show everyone that they are “for real” by beating a tough opponent away from Chapel Hill.

Conference Play Looming

This weekend, the PAC 10, Big Ten, SEC and ACC with most of the Big East and Big 12 schools choosing yet another weekend to schedule non-league tilts. That means most of the top teams in the country will have a reprieve before their schedules heat up the first weekend in October.
