College football games of the week: The good, the bad and the ugly
What a fantastic suck of sports it has been the last 10 days. To recap: This happened, and then the grand finale. Fortunately I am very positive, shallow and have the attention span of a gnat on Red Bull and I will move on… The League is back on! There is college football on Tuesdays again! And that guy dove off the moon or something! What were we talking about? Let’s get to the football this week!
We now change the rankings to the BCS rankings
No. 7 South Carolina Gamecocks at No. 2 Florida Gators: 2:30 p.m. on CBS
The Gamecocks are rebounding from a tough loss, but have no time to feel sorry for themselves as they head to The Swamp with the Florida Gators, whose meteoric rise to the top is reminiscent of the Auburn Tigers in 2010. I can’t get my head around why I don’t trust Florida, because time and again they prove they belong, but I don’t see them getting through the SEC unscathed and this could be the loss.
This should be a low scoring game as both defenses are excellent, but a healthy Marcus Lattimore is the difference in Gainesville. Of course, that hip injury could keep him from the game entirely. If he plays, Cocks 24, Gators 20. If he doesn’t, Gators 20, Cocks 14. This is the definition of waffling.
No. 6 LSU Tigers at No. 18 Texas AM Aggies: 11 a.m. ESPN
