    Week 1

    Ohio State - USC takes the cake this week. Yep, I had a bird's eye view of this 52-45 shootout and with 2 national powerhouses meeting it didn't dissappoint. G Will got the victory with a HUGE stop on the 1 yd line in OT to seal the Buckeye victory. Going forward if we can have a game of this magnitude entertain the crowd HALF as much as this one, the league is in good hands!

    Week 3

    The week doesn't even need to be over for me to declare OSU-Oregon the game of the week! What a defensive slugfest - FG's were the scoring method of choice for this one lol. If only USC could learn how to play defense like these two teams they might not be in a 1-2 hole to start the season. Normally when the two QB's throw for 6 ints combined I'd say it was an incredibly ugly game, but I know the caliber of player these two are and this was not ugly by any means! G Will didn't go down without a fight, but it looks like we may be crowning a new BCS champ this year!

    Isnt the game of the week supposed to be before the game is actually played. i know its your content but it would be more fun if you picked the game of the week before the game was actually played.

    I agree - I wanna do it that way its just tough if someone gets the "Game of the Week" in before I write something up lol. But going forward I'll do that I like it more as well.

    I'm glad you didn't take my comment the wrong way. I just remember last year I always looked forward to the game of the week content.

    Game Of The Week - Week 5

    [​IMG] vs. [​IMG]

    The FSU Seminoles and Clemson Tigers, both fresh off their first losses of the season go head to head in this ACC clash in Week 5. Who will get a leg up in the race to represent the Atlantic division in the ACC Championship?? The 'Noles will most certainly look to establish Heisman Trophy candidate Chris Thompson (RB - Jr.) is the premier threat to the Tigers in this game. Clemson's big space-eating DT Brandon Thompson (no relation...I think!) will look to contain the elusive RB if the Tigers have ANY shot at beating the Seminoles. That being said, Rs-Soph QB Tajh Boyd is no slouch himself - the Dual-Threat (although Clay hasn't threatened with him much on the ground :)) QB could end up giving Seminole defense a tough time as they can never sit comfortably or Boyd might take off. I look for this to be a hard fought game, both teams are well-respected in the ACC. The 'Noles offensive line is full of some serious hogs, and I look for them to honestly dominate on the ground throughout the 2nd half after wearing the Tigers D-Line down. The Seminoles will walk into Death Valley, take Clemson's soul - and exit right back down to Tallahasse. My humble prediction is 38-28 Florida State University.
