Texas and Nebraska in Big 12 Showdown

In what could be a preview of the Big 12 Championship game in December, the 5th ranked Texas Longhorns face off against the 17th ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers at 12pm EST on Saturday. Texas comes into Memorial Stadium putting up more than 40 points per game and will be looking to test the Cornhuskers defense that is keeping opponents to an average of 13.4 points.

After a slow start last week against Baylor as 27 point favorites, the Long Horns took control in the 2nd half under freshman quarterback Colt McCoy who finished the game with 6 touchdown passes in the 63-31 blow out.

Kansas State’s running game was totally shut down as the Nebraska defense held them to just 22 yards on 18 carries in the 21-3 domination as 8.5 point favorites. This was Kansas State’s first loss to Nebraska at home since 1996.

College Football Week 7

Will Week 7 of CFB be a "lucky-seven" for CFB's 2nd-ranked team in the AP? So far, being ranked No. 2 in the writers' poll has been has not a good position. In Week 1, No.2 Notre Dame barely escaped in Atlanta against Ga Tech, 14-10. The poor showing saw the Irish fall to No. 4 in the next week's poll. The nation's new No. 2 was Texas, which promptly lost at home to No. 1 Ohio State, ending the defending champs' 21-game winning streak.

Note Dame was back at No.2 the following week and of course got crushed by Michigan in South Bend, 47-21. Auburn took over the No. 2 spot in Week 4 and beat Buffalo (38-7) and South Carolina (just 24-17) in successive weeks but last Saturday became the first top-10 team to lose to an unranked opponent in 2006, when the Tigers lost to Arkansas, 27-10. Florida is the AP's latest No. 2 and as luck would have it in this "never get a breather" conference, the Gators must travel to Auburn Saturday night to face the Tigers (now ranked just 11).

Big 10 Football Recap Print

Big 10 Football Recap

As the midpoint of conference play approaches, the Big Ten clearly appears to be separated into two tiers. Four of the six games last week were routs, including the nation's No. 1 team, Ohio State, taking care of in-state mid-major Bowling Green by a score of 35-7 at the Horseshoe.

In my opinion, the top tier is filled by the Buckeyes, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin. With limited exception, I would not expect any of these four teams to lose to the bottom seven. Wisconsin may struggle with its trip to West Lafayette in two weeks and Iowa may be given a battle at the end the season with a trip to the Twin Cities. Will one of these two games be our Big Ten Game of the Year? Only time will tell but there is a good chance.
