The Buckeyes host the Trojans a year after an embarrassing 35-3 loss to USC last season. Both teams are very different but the general perceptions of both teams have not changed, as the Trojans are getting seven points on the road in Ohio Stadium. USC is brining in a true freshman quarterback to the game, as Matt Barkley will start in the most hostile environment he has ever been on. The game is also on national television and the freshman’s nerves should be at a high.
OhioState is playing for the pride of the Big Ten Conference, which has been dogged for poor performances in marquee games of the last three years. Expect a motivated
OhioState team to play physical with the Trojans and take the game down to the wire.
Another home underdog,
Buffalo is getting 11 points against the Panthers and Dave Wannstedt has lost at least one non-conference game in each of his four seasons as coach of Pitt. Last season, it was a 27-17 loss to
Bowling Green at Heinz Field.
Buffalo is well-coached with Turner Gill leading the Bulls to a 23-17 win over UTEP last week, though they were 8-point underdogs.
Buffalo has one of the best receivers in the country in Naaman Roosevelt, and he will give
Pittsburgh issues. Expect
Pittsburgh to have a letdown after a 35-3 win over
YoungstownState last weekend.
South Carolina has had
Georgia’s number from a defensive standpoint, not allowing the Bulldogs to score more than 20 points since 2004. Last year, the Bulldogs had to scratch and claw their way to a 14-7 win, and this season, the Bulldogs have a lot of questions on offense.
Georgia amassed just 257 yards against a weak
OklahomaState defense. This week, the test is much greater for
Georgia on offense.
South Carolina doesn’t have a lot of offensive fire power either, but the defense will give the Gamecocks a chance to win late and cover the spread.
Miami allowed 42 points at home against
Kentucky last weekend and now travels to the blue turf to face
BoiseState, which is looking to unleash its offensive frustrations after only scoring 19 points against
Oregon. The RedHawks don’t have the talent to slow
BoiseState down, as it allowed 488 yards to the Wildcats, and won’t have any offense to keep the Broncos’ offense off the field, as it amassed just 188 yards last Saturday. This game should be covered by halftime.
