NCAA Saturday- 5 To Watch

November 9, 2007

Who is your upset special this week? Take your pick.
There will be no true marquee matchup this week, like last week’s Arizona State-Oregon game. But there could be several seasons spoiled or other seasons made this week by several teams with upsets on their mind.

No. 3 Oregon has this week off; so does No. 2 LSU — well, sort of. The Tigers host 4-5 Louisiana Tech for homecoming.

No. 1 Ohio State, though, could be on upset alert. After beating Penn State and Wisconsin in the past two weeks, the Buckeyes host a team that defeated both the Nittany Lions and Badgers when Illinois comes to Columbus. Michigan, meanwhile, hosts Ohio State on Nov. 17, but first must get past an upset-minded Wisconsin team in Madison this week.

After scoring 76 points against Nebraska, Kansas will face a team that presumably will play some defense and has the offensive firepower to keep up when the Jayhawks go to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State.

In the SEC East, a topsy-turvy season won’t let up anytime soon, with Arkansas going to Tennessee and Florida going to South Carolina.

We sort out all the big games in the Five to Watch.

NCAA Football: This Weeks Games To Watch

November 3, 2007

Wisconsin (7-2 overall, 3-2 in the Big Ten) at Ohio State (9-0, 5-0)
Time: Noon
Network: Big Ten Network
Storylines: Ohio State solidified its top spot in the BCS standings with a 37-17 win at Penn State last week. The win was so convincing it knocked Penn State out of the polls, meaning the Buckeyes haven’t defeated a team that is currently ranked. If Badgers TB P.J. Hill (foot) isn’t able to play, the Buckeyes could knock another team from the ranks of the ranked. The question is how many people will see it. Because of contractual obligations, this game will air on the Big Ten Network.
Player to watch: Ohio State QB Todd Boeckman proved he’s more than just a game-manager. He showed he can be an elite quarterback with 253 yards passing, three touchdowns and an interception against Penn State.
Best matchup: Wisconsin QB Tyler Donovan vs. Ohio State defense. The Buckeyes have smothered every team they have faced, and that could continue against Wisconsin. With Hill banged-up, it puts more pressure on Donovan and TE Travis Beckum to beat Ohio State through the air.

LSU (7-1 overall, 4-1 in the SEC) at Alabama (6-2, 4-1)
Time: 5 p.m.
Network: CBS
