 There's The Big Game being played at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Saturday. And there is a slew of other big games going on all over the country this weekend that've been pushed out of the spotlight by the Ohio State-Southern California mega-matchup.
South Florida hosts Kansas, playing not only for its own aspirations but for Big East dignity. Georgia starts its Southeastern Conference season at South Carolina, where Steve Spurrier is playing musical quarterbacks again. Texas and Arkansas renew a classic rivalry with a new twist: Welcome, Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino. Oregon and Purdue offer a potential Big Ten-Pac-10 shootout.
Also, two potential BCS busters try to stay undefeated at home against teams from the Big Six conferences: BYU hosts UCLA from the Pac-10 and Fresno State gets a visit from Wisconsin out of the Big Ten.
Lots to like.
