#25 West Virginia 21 @ #5 Cincinnati 24
Bearcats take a big step closer to that coveted Big East title and a spot in the Orange Bowl. Can they finish the season without Pike? If so, can they do it undefeated?
#7 Georgia Tech 49 @ Duke 10
After falling behind 10 – 0 the Wreck decided they were ready to play and went on a 49 – 0 run to steam roll the Duke Blue Devils. They clinched the ACC Coastal with this win and a trip to the ACC Championship game.
Tennessee 17 @ Mississippi 42
Some day someone will figure out that defending Ole Miss starts and ends with stopping McCluster. How difficult can that possibly be? I mean honestly?
#1 Florida 24 @ South Carolina 14
The Gators continue to roll along winning their 20th consecutive game. They also secured their spot in the SEC Championship game against Alabama. Rematch time for them.
#10 Iowa 24 @ #11 Ohio State 27 OT
It took OT, but the Buckeyes were able to secure the Big 10 title outright. This will be the Buckeyes first Rose Bowl trip since 1997. They continue to get into BCS bowls. HOW?????
Troy 20 @ Arkansas 56
The Hogs win their 5th straight game in the state and their offense continues to roll up massive amounts of yardage and points. Mallett shattered the single season passing record during the game … and he has three games to go.
Notre Dame 22 @ #12 Pittsburgh 27
Pitt continued to hold up its end of the bargain and making the potential for two undefeated Big East teams to play the final game of the regular season. Cincy and Pitt should be a GREAT matchup.
Texas Tech 17 @ #19 Oklahoma State 24
Tech didn't win this battle, but they may have helped other Little XII teams when they knocked Robinson completely loopy near the end of the game. Probably won't be back for Colorado, but hopefully for the Cowboys' sake he is back for Bedlam.
Stanford 55 @ #9 USC 21
Yeah, that score is NOT wrong. In the Coliseum, the PAC-10 power Trojans were taken out behind the woodshed. Up 48 – 21, Stanford goes for 2. I LOVE IT!!!!
#16 Utah 28 @ #4 TCU 55
Don't get me wrong, TCU is probably a very, very good team. However, when you play SMU, UNLV, San Diego State, and Wyoming, and they count as conference wins, you really aren't going to impress me much. Sorry.
Brick of the Week (BOTW)
Lots of great picks again this week. However, as is the usual, one of those picks stood out as being very inept. That would have been the pick for Utah to upend TCU and end their BCS hopes. Instead, that didn't exactly go the way the Utes had planned. They were humiliated by 27 points and they really won't ever even in the game. So, for being the only individual to give the Utes a chance, this individual gets the BOTW. Sorry bud, but it goes to Mr. Jonathan "Please, anyone but Charlie Weis. Please!!!" Butcher.
Pick of the week (POTW)
There could have been 17 people actually receive the BOTW but instead that gets flopped around and therefore 5 people get POTW honors for correctly picking this one. Who know that Papa Kiffin would have no freaking clue how to stop or even slow down Dexter McCluster and the Ole Miss Rebels. They looked worse than Arkansas trying to defend Ole Miss, and that is NOT a good thing. Therefore, for being in love with Hootie, the following get the POTW, Mr. Ben "Just call me Wild Rebel" Gilbert, Mr. Carroll "They won DESPITE Hootie" Walls, Mr. Brian "Rebels are better than Volunteers, right?" Mashburn, Mrs. Tammy "I am not sure why I picked Ole Miss" Tucker, and Mr. Travis "Never cheer for anyone wearing putrid orange." Stout. Congratulations.
Champion of the Week (COTW)
We had three individuals who correctly picked 9 of the 10 games this week. That is pretty impressive considering the gauntlet of games on the docket. No one. I repeat NO ONE game Stanford a chance in the Coliseum. Who knew right? Well, that lead us to the tie-breaker. It almost had to go to sudden death on that one even. The winner this week won by the slimmest of margins. 1 tie-break point. Yep 1 POINT! The COTW for Week 11 is none other than Mr. Carroll "Starting to get the hang of this contest" Walls. Congratulations my friend.
