NCAA Preview for Week 4
This post is the first weekly preview for NCAA Football. I will write a preview every Wednesday.
Thursday Night Game:
Texas A&M (20) at Miami (Fl)
The Aggies are 3-0; Miami is 2-1. Texas A&M looked good last week and are going to beat Miami. Miami didn’t even show up in Week 2 against Oklahoma (lost 51-13). Jorvorskie Lane will demolish “The U’s” defense. The Aggies will win a close one 35-31.
Friday Night Game:
Oklahoma (4) at Tulsa
No contest. Sam Bradford and Malcolm Kelly connect for two touchdowns in a blowout. Oklahoma wins 56-21.
Northwestern at Ohio State (8)
The Buckeyes cruise to their first Big Ten win of the year. Northwestern lost to Duke 20 to 14 last week. That says it all. Watch for Chris Wells and Brian Robiskie to have huge games. With all OSU students back on campus for the Fall Quarter, THE Ohio State University wins 49- 10.
Penn State (10) at Michigan
Senior Austin Scott(RB) and Junior Derrick Williams(WR) lead the Nittany Lions to victory. Mike Hart will keep the game close for the Wolverines. He will rush for over 100 yards and a few touchdowns. Penn State wins 38-21. Dan Connor(LB) will make Ryan Mallet wish he was still on the bench. Michigan fans will be crying again inside the Big House.
South Carolina(12) at LSU (2)
The Tigers look good in this home game. Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks have no chance in the Bayou. Both teams are currently 3-0 and 1-0 in the SEC. LSU’s defense will be the difference-maker in this matchup. Look for SC QB Blake Mitchell to be sacked at least five times. Sr wideout Early Doucet will make some big plays on offense for the Tigers. LSU wins 24-14.
Georgia(22) at Alabama (16)
Nick Saban keeps the magic going in Bama. The Crimson Tide is 3-0 and 2-0 in SEC; Georgia is 2-1 and 0-1. UGA will be stampeded by Alabama. John Parker Wilson and DJ Hall hook up for 150 plus yards. Terry Grant rushes for a few TDs for Bama. Georgia will be outplayed and out coached in this SEC matchup.
Iowa at Wisconsin (9)
Iowa Hawkeyes are 2-1, losing to Iowa State last week 15-13. Wisconsin Badgers are 3-0 beating Washington State, UNLV and The Citadel. PJ Hill rushes for 2 scores for ‘Consin. The Badgers solidify their Top Ten Rank with another win. Wisconsin over Iowa 28-10.
Top 25 Team with the Best Chance to be Upset:
Kentucky Wildcats(21). Arkansas plays host to the Wildcats this Saturday. If Darren McFadden and Casey Dick play well, Andre’ Woodson team will be in trouble. Kentucky is currently 3-0; Arkansas is 1-1, lost to Alabama on Sept 15 41-38. McFadden and Felix Jones have combined for 571 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns in two games for the Razorbacks. I don’t see Kentucky stopping Arkansas’ tenacious rushing attack. Razorbacks win an offensive battle 42-38.
Random Comments of the Week
Texas is starting to look like the Cincinnati Bengals with all of their off the field issues. Freshman RB James Henry is the sixth Texas player to be arrested since June. Mack Brown, you need to keep your players under control. The other players are:
LB Sergio Kindle- Drunk Driving. Kindle and Melton will be back for this game after serving 3 game suspensions.
DE Henry Melton- Drunk Driving
Safety Tyrell Gatewood- Drug Charges. He was suspended last week indefinably.
Andre Jones- alleged home invasion in July with Henry and Joseph. Jones is currently suspended.
Robert Joseph- home invasion. He left the team before the July arrest due to a prior incident.
