    Things are getting very interesting, as the national championship picture is starting to take shape. Wisconsin will take on a Michigan State squad that has given three users trouble this year, and beat Notre Dame. Speaking of the Irish, can they hand Oklahoma their third consecutive loss on the year? A big game in Norman today as both teams try to stay alive for a BCS Bowl. Ohio State travels to Happy Valley to meet their rival Penn State, in what always is a tougher game than expected. And in our game of the wek, Florida and Georgia do battle, with the winner becoming the favorite to win the SEC East.

    #11 Arkansas vs. Ole Miss
    #13 Auburn vs. Texas A&M
    #4 Wisconsin vs. Michigan State
    #9 Michigan @ Nebraska
    #6 Ohio State @ Penn State
    #1 Florida State vs. Duke
    #25 Georgia Tech vs. BYU
    #17 Notre Dame @ #16 Oklahoma

    User Game of the Week: #7 Florida @ #12 Georgia

    Perfect Season Over, Buckeyes Fall in OT

    Ohio State dropped their first game of the season in overtime 27-21, despite out-gaining Penn State 400-222. Ball security has been a major issue for OSU all season, and today it finally caught up with them. Braxton Miller threw one interception and OSU fumbled the ball three times, including on the opening possession of overtime. Jordan Hall's overtime fumble was scooped up by Penn State and returned 85 yards for the touchdown, securing a PSU victory before the Nittany Lion's offense even stepped on the field during the extra period. Special teams were also a problem for the Buckeyes, PSU's first touchdown came on an 80-yard punt return in the first quarter. The loss puts Ohio State at 8-1 on the season, but they still control their own destiny. If Ohio State wins out they are guaranteed to earn the Leaders Division title and a spot in the Big Ten Title Game. Next week the Buckeyes welcome Illinois to Columbus, their final game before consecutive user games against Wisconsin and Michigan.

    Auburn wins again behind a good overall effort on both sides of the ball. Frazier was great throwing the ball.​

    Georgia can't overcome mental errors, falls victim to Florida in annual rivalry game!

    If there was anytime to be a proud Georgia fan, it wouldn't be this time. Georgia has some serious issues that need to be worked out. Their offense is hit or miss, usually miss. Their defense has played horrible in the first half for the 3rd week in a row, but was able to turn it around in the second half. The only bright spot on this whole team seems to be Tavarres King, who had a Kickoff Return for a touchdown in this game. King leads the NCAA with 1,239 yards and 5 KR TD's. He is has been incredible this year on special teams and in this game helped out the offense greatly, scoreing 2 td's with 175 yards receiving. On Florida's side they dominated with a passing attack that accounted for 348 yards and 1 TD. Florida QB, Jacoby Brissett was on fire hitting his targets well. Florida played an overall great game in the first half, but took a step back in the second half. They still held on late in the 4th quarter and won 38-35.

    Florida improves to 8-0 as Georgia falls to 6-2 on the season. Next week Georgia will face Ole Miss in the hopes to turn their season around.

    Still Undefeated in Mad-Town

    On the snow covered field at Camp Randall the Badgers proved their dominance as they shut out Michigan State 31-0. State's front seven easily handled Wisc, Wisc running backs only amassed 79 Yds on 24 carries. Danny O'Brien found wide open zones all day and completed 70% of his passes going 12/17 145 3TD. But all of the credit should goto the defense for their dominating performance, they held State to 161 total yards of offense and scored one TD to add to the beating. Michigan State was held to 27% 3rd down conv. and NEGATIVE 4 rushing yards on the day.

    IRISH PULL OFF INCREDIBLE COMEBACK, KNOCK OFF SOONERS IN NORMAN IN FINAL SECONDS
    The game belonged to the Sooners. Trailing by three scores for most of the second and third quarters, it seemed that Notre Dame was destined for another tough road loss. What followed was a miracle, as Tommy Rees and Tyler Eifert gashed the Oklahoma secondary for two 70+ yard TDs, while the Irish secondary intercepted four Landry Jones passes to lead Notre Dame to a one point victory over the Sooners.

    The winning TD was scored with 6 seconds remaining as Rees hooked up with Eifert who had burned two linebackers and was wide open. Eifert snagged the pass and caught a seam, streaking 77 yards to the end zone to give the Irish a needed victory.
