Although Virginia Tech has struggled the past several weeks, College Football has been very exciting and this Saturday has set up to be quite a dandy. Here are several games to watch:
Michigan vs Michigan State: One of the most heated rivalries in all of college football will add another chapter to it's storied history at 3:30 on ABC. Although MSU is one of the best teams in the country under a top 5 coach, in my opinion, Michigan is a wounded football team that will look to right the ship that Brady Hoke is currently letting sink.
Oklahoma State vs West Virginia: Also at 3:30, on ESPN, two high powered offenses will collide as West Virginia travels into Boone Pickens Stadium to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Both teams have a 3-1 record in the BIG12 and are looking to add another quality win to their resume. West Virginia is coming off of a huge win against #4 Baylor and are looking to climb even further up the rankings.
Ole Miss vs LSU: What a year Hugh Freeze's squad is putting together. Bo Wallace has the Ole Miss offense rolling and has gotten a lot of help from one of the best, if not the best, defenses in the country led by Robert Nkemdiche. On the other side of the 7:15 tilt on ESPN as a Les MIles led LSU squad that are hungry for an upset at home, under the lights in the real "Death Valley".
Ohio State vs Penn State: At 8:00 on ABC, Urban Meyer's revived Buckeyes squad travels to Happy Valley for a BIG10 showdown with the Nittany Lions. Ohio State has returned to form after suffering a home loss to Virginia Tech and will be looking to slow down Christian Hackenberg who has thrown for over 1,600 yards on the year. Penn State's defense will need to show up and help the Nittany Lions play field position football, which they have not done the past two weeks as they suffered losses to Northwestern (really?) and a mediocre Michigan squad.
