We have a fantastic upcoming slate of football games to look forward to this weekend! Of course, top billing belongs to the renewal of the rivalry between the Wolverines and the Fighting Irish as Michigan heads to South Bend to take on Notre Dame. Come back to the blog this saturday at 3:30 to listen in live for WCBN Sports' broadcast of the game! Bill Rothwell, The Andrew Goddeeris, Adam Brewster, and Tyler Bruens will have the call What makes this an even better weekend is all the other quality games that fill out the remainder of the weekend:
22 Georgia vs. 24 South Carolina, 12:00 PM
This game starts a three-games-in-a-four-game-stretch that will make or break Steve Spurrier's job at South Carolina. After Georgia, the Ol' ball coach catches a bit of a break against Furman before taking on Auburn and then Alabama. Losing all three of those games against ranked opponents would make it nearly impossible for Spurrier to keep his job (unless he can take down Florida later in the year).
17 Florida St. vs. 10 Okalahoma, 3:30 PM
The Seminoles look to jump on the suddenly weak-looking Sooners. Florida St. looks for its first significant win in the post-Bobby Bowden era while the Sooners look to try to show that last week's rough effort against Utah St. was an aberration.
12 Miami vs. 2 Ohio St, 3:40 pm
This one is a huge game for both teams. Ohio St. looks to gain a more secure footing on second place ahead of Boise St. with a strong showing here, while Miami looks to give itself national championship hopes with a win of its own. The battle between highly-touted QBs Jacory Harris and Terrelle Pryor should be a thrill to watch.
18. Penn St vs. 1 Alabama
JoePa has his work cut out for him this week, taking his Nittany Lions (and true freshman QB Robert Bolden) to Tuscaloosa. Bolden looked good in his first game, but the Youngstown St. defense doesn't even compare to Alabamas. If Bolden can play like an upperclassman though, this game should be filled with smash-mouth football. It is still not known if last year's heisman winner, Mark Ingram, will play for the Crimson Tide.
Should be a fantastic weekend for college football fans! And don't forget, if you want to join the WCBN Sports' colorful team of personalities, come by and find the WCBN Booth at Festifall in the Diag today!
