No. 1 Alabama at No. 24 Texas A&M. The Aggies will face the top-ranked team for the second time this season, which has happened 28 times previously (including postseason games). The last team to do it during in the regular season was Tennessee in 2009, when it lost to both Florida and Alabama.

No. 7 Florida at No. 5 LSU. The Gators will play in consecutive top-10 matchups.

No. 11 Texas vs. No. 6 Oklahoma. Red River is cool again.

No. 10 Penn State at No. 17 Iowa. The Hawkeyes often give ranked teams a hard time at Kinnick Stadium under the lights.

 

Now it gets interesting - Florida @ LSU baby.  Good luck to the Gators, they'll need it.

I like that Gators CB CJ Henderson very rangy and seems to be able to tackle.

 

Could turn out to be better than Vernon Hargreaves in the NFL.

 

Not a great recent history for Gator CBs though.

 

Duke Dawson and Teez Tabor etc.

@Tre Mac: are you able to watch your Gators against LSU?

 

My cable package only has USC-Notre Dame and Penn St-Iowa....<_<

Yeah TSN2 had it, they put up a good fight until the 4th then LSU took over.  Burrow looks legit, LSU has a killer offense.  At least Georgia lost, lol.

I realized that.....after it was basically over....

 

I get a few different feeds from FOX, CBS etc., and they were all showing the games I mentioned earlier. I never even occurred to me to check TSN. I just assumed they'd all be showing the CFL game...:picard:

 

Disappointing loss for your guys, but it looks like the Tigers are the real deal. I was hoping the Sooners could climb the rankings a bit, (and I guess they will after Georgia's loss) but I was really hoping for the Gators to pull off the upset.

 

That being said, a win at the RRR and the Canucks win over the Flyers last night make me a pretty happy camper today.:)

Yeah offensively LSU is rolling, not sure about that D though.  If Florida had a better QB, maybe even their starter, who knows.  I like how the Gators program has rebounded and wouldn't be surprised if a couple of their WR's make the show.

Mountaineers are giving the Sooners more trouble that we might have expected, as well.

 

@Tre Mac I see your Gators are still running neck and neck with SC. After last week, I think we just have to say that the Gamecocks are a lot better than their 3-3 record would suggest.

Yeah historically they've had a good program.  31-20 Gators, bringing it in the 4th quarter according to my ticker.

Don't know about you Tre, but I liked the Gators going for it on 4th down, but I hated the play call....

 

....empty backfield?:wacko:

Aye, oh well they kept it close, Fromm made a great play at the end to keep the drive going. 

 

Should be a threat next year if they get better at QB.  The coach reminds me of the uncle from Christmas Vacation, I might of already mentioned that.
