    User vs User games

    #2 Alabama 9-0 (6-0) vs #22 LSU 6-3 (3-2)

    LSU hosts #2 Alabama after climbing back into the 25 for week 11. The Tigers trail in this series 1-2 but were winners last season and everygame has been close. Alabama has been able maintain its running game even without HB Trent Richardson (Broken Hand). But Tide followers have felt the team is just not the same. Bama will need QB Star Jackson to pick it up a little bit and pick his spots to use WR Kendall Kelly to keep the Tigers honest. The never bashful coach Rynoaid will be looking to add a signature win to the Tigers resume and a giant killing would do just that. LSU likely will spread the field and let QB Russell Sheppard go to work. Sheppard will make or break the Tigers in this rivalry game.

    #7 Clemson 8-1 (6-1) vs #4 FSU 8-1 (6-1)

    This game between a pair of 1 loss teams will decide one half of the ACC. The winner can punch his ticket to meet up with undefeated and #1 ranked Georgia Tech. That meeting in later this year could put the winner in the National Title. It goes without saying this is the ACC's biggest game of the year. Florida State has won games by generating a massive amount of turnovers. But has given the ball away is fair share. Their secondary will be tested in this one and will need QB EJ Manuel to protect the ball to have a shot. Clemson has won on grit, desire, and a little sim luck. Can QB Kyle Parker lead the Tigers to a win throwing 40+ times? Without a run game thats what Parker will have to do. It's Parker vs the FSU defense, lets see whos left standing.

    National Televised Games

    #8 Michigan 7-1 vs. #11 Virginia Tech 6-3
    VT is the best 6-3 team in the country and will crack the top 10 with a win against Michigan.

    Ole Miss 4-4 (2-3) @ #15 Georgia 5-3 (3-3)

    Georgia needs to close strong to finish 9-3.

    Regional Televised Games

    Boston College 2-6 (1-5) @ #9 UNC 6-2 (3-2)
    Were betting UNC doesn't have 5 TO's in this one and Clancy rushes for more than 55 yards.

    #23 Florida 5-4 (3-4) @ Vandy 3-5 (1-4)

    Vandy is bad Florida is good.

    Virginia 2-6 (1-5) @ #1 Georgia Tech 9-0 (7-0)

    Virgina is so bad the #1 team in the country cant get on National television.

    IDLE

    #5 Tennessee 8-1
    The Vol's are off. Gives them a chance to work on their 4x100 relay team.

    #6 Auburn 8-1

    Off and getting ready for next weeks SEC west showdown with Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

    THE "BENTLEY" GAME OF THE WEEK
    #7 CLEMSON (8-1) @ #4 FLORIDA STATE (8-1)
    ---For some odd reason, FSU dropped a spot in the polls after beating a top 10 BCS team in North Carolina. This may have a lot of people up in arms but Florida State pretty much controls their own destiny. A win here and FSU will secure the final spot in the ACC title game facing Georgia Tech. A win against GT and FSU will surely be up for a national title game. But first, they must get past Clemson, who also has title aspirations. Clemson also controls their fate but they have a ways to go. A win here and they'll get to play GT for the ACC title. They'll still have Auburn, a highly ranked team in their way as well. Either way, this could clear the smoke for one team while paving a path for the other.

    THE MERCEDES GAME
    #2 ALABAMA (9-0) @ #22 LSU (6-3)
    ---Bama has been on their A game this year but now, they are entering the toughest part of their schedule. LSU stands in their way of possibly entering the SEC title game. Not to mention, Bama follows up with Auburn, who is undefeated in SEC play. Losing star RB Trent Richardson hurt but all Bama has done is run an offense that makes no mistakes. SR-QB Star Jackson has played like a star, throwing 22 TD's but only 1 interception on the year. That's an amazing stat. He's also completing 76% of his passes. LSU meanwhile has put Shepard's ability to run and pass to the test. He is the LSU offense and Shepard has an outside shot of 2000 yards passing and 1000 yards rushing. If LSU can force a few turnovers on Alabama, we feel LSU will upset Bama, especially with LSU being at home.

    THE REST OF THE "FLEET" GAMES
    OLE MISS (4-4) @ #15 GEORGIA (5-3)- ?User games have been the bane of Georgia's existence this year but they should bounce back against Ole Miss

    VIRGINIA (2-6) @ #1 GEORGIA TECH (9-0)- GT looks to steamroll over Virginia before their own bye week and then facing two of the SEC's finest squads in Georgia and Auburn

    #8 MICHIGAN (7-1) @ #11 VIRGINIA TECH (6-3)- Michigan feels they have an outside shot of a title if the chips fall their way. VT looks to take Michigan down a few pegs and bring them to reality

    BOSTON COLLEGE (2-6) @ #9 NORTH CAROLINA (6-2)- UNC has been tough this year and rising from a bad 2011 to a top 10 team. They should take care of BC

    #23 FLORIDA (5-4) @ VANDERBILT (3-5)- Florida should roll over Vandy before having their final tough test of the season

    #6 AUBURN (8-1) Has a bye before facing Alabama next week
    #14 MIAMI (7-2) Has a bye
    #5 TENNESSEE (8-1) Has a bye

    The Clemson game is going to be a huge one for us. If we win we will still have Florida and Tennessee before the ACC title game. So my potential road to a BCS title game would be:

    UNC
    Clemson
    Florida
    Tennessee
    Georgia Tech

    If I run that gauntlet it would be nothing short of a miracle.
