No user games and we were headed to Stanford but that one is already done so we'll head to Tuscon for this week's Pac 12 matchup between #15 USC and #23 Arizona. This game has a little meaning in the Pac 12 South. If USC stumbles that would create a four 1 loss teams. The Trojans have been up or down this season so coach Rockwell will need to have his boys prepare for this road trip. Just to recap a wild week we had, Arkansas remains #1 after the scare from the Gators. Arkansas jumped out to a 35-7 lead over the Gators but Florida eventually held a 42-41 lead in the fourth quarter. Arkansas connected on a 78 yard touchdown from QB Brandon Allen to HB Knile Davis to take the lead for the final time and hold on 49-42. South Carolina continues to fight close battles with Vanderbilt but as long as they win I guess it doesn't matter. South Carolina also remains undefeated and #2 in the nation with the 28-16 victory. Lastly in the SEC , Alabama had a scare of their own with Tennessee. It's never easy to go into Neyland Stadium and win and the Crimson Tide did just that with the 35-30 victory. In the B1G, Wisconsin trailed 24-21 late in the game and turned the ball over twice in the closing minutes but the defense stopped the Hawkeyes & the offense added two late touchdowns to take the Iowa monkey off their back with the 35-24 win. Michigan had the late game last week but they snagged a 10 point victory over the Spartans in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines jumped out to a 14-0 lead and the Spartans scored 21 unanswered to lead 21-14 at the break but the Wolverines came fighting back to win 45-35. A lot of us had nail biters and the Buckeyes were right there also. The Buckeyes trailed 35-20 early in the fourth but 18 unanswered lifted Ohio State over Nebraska 38-35. Like we mentioned, Illinois loves to play down to their competition. They're flat out better then Minnesota but Illinois has a problem putting away opponents. The Fighting Illini fought all game long with the Gophers but a 10 point cushion created at the start of the 4th was enough to hold on to the victory 27-24. OLut west in the Pac-12 all our teams came away victorious. Oregon absolutely killed Utah. It was payback and then some! The Ducks knocked off the Utes 56-28. USC comfortably beat Arizona State. Probably not a big of a win as they woul've liked but the 40-25 victory is enough to keep the hot streak alive for the Trojans. Coach ryalaman held off his old recruits. The game was a defensive struggle but Cal keeps climbing the polls after the 17-10 win over the Tigers of Missouri and finally Stanford knocked off another SEC team in that of Texas A&M. This week the Cardinal prepare to host #7 Notre Dame. Not a lot of stellar matchups this week. Only two games with ranked opponents facing each other. However in two weeks we'll have the current #1 & #2 teams in the country face off. It's another 'Game Of The Decade" scenario. Oregon will need to be careful with UCLA, the Bruins are unranked but carry a shocking 6-2 record. Big rivalry matchup down in Jacksonville for the yearly Florida-Georgia game. Florida has had all the success recently against the Bulldogs so we'll see if they can continue that. Elsewhere through the country their just aren't a lot of matchups that are intriguing. Only 3 total top 25 match ups this week so we most likely won't see a lot of movement in the rankings unless we get a handful of upsets. We're getting to the point of the season where it's make or break and we have some outstanding games coming the next few weeks, so let's get through this one ASAP.
