Finally it is here, and there is a pretty full slate of 18 games tonight... including four ranked teams in action, one Big XII team (counting Iowa State), and what could be an epic showdown in Utah. Let's take a look at the games of interest... shall we?
|Marshall @ Ohio State
|Excellent breakdown of Marshall and the game on the other oSU's SB Nation blog "Along the Olentangy". Honestly one of the better game previews I've read... and I've read TWO game previews!
|FL A&M @ Miami
|Time to see if Miami is ready to be Miami again... minus all the rape obviously. SB Nation preview here.
|Southern Miss @ South Carolina
|Still waiting on TOBC to take that leap forward. Preview from Garnet and Black Attack....calling for a 27 point win for USC. Feel free to borrow that "Cocks" hat from your 18 year old self and don it for this one.
|N. Illinois @ Iowa State
|ISU is only a 4 point favorite in this one.. gotta think that isn't enough respect for lovable Paul Rhodes and the Clones. According to the preview from Clone Chronicles, they need some yards through the air and to find a way to stop the potent NI rushing attack. Other needs in Ames include self tanner and an identity.
|Pitt @ Utah
|Really looking forward to this one. Mountain West Connection has a preview here. I am playing with Pitt in an NCAA 11 online dynasty, and let me say that RB Dion Lewis is super-digital-lethal. Really no reason to read the game preview after that nugget huh?
|USC @ Hawaii
|I'm no timezone expert (still an apprentice), but I think this game kicks off at 5 Hawaiian time. SB Nation Preview here.
Enjoy a new season tonight, and everyone make sure and join us here on Saturday during the Oklahoma State game as we will be live threading the hell out of that piece.
