I'm having a hard time believing all my Georgia friends that they are the better team than Florida. Why? Because they are not. I think we might finally get a close battle today because both of these programs are going through transitions. Georgia and Florida are both out of the top 25 and neither has beaten anybody of significance. I know one thing for sure is the Dawgs have the better QB in Aaron Murray and he is going to be under pressure all day from a Gators defense. Expect blitzing all day. If Florida didn't have the extra week off I would probably be taking UGA but I think Urban Meyer has Florida ready to play their best game of the year.

Ducks vs Trojans (Oregon - 6.5)
Oregon has the most efficient offense in the country. The Trojans defense is young and gives up a ton of big plays. Last year the Ducks ran all over the filthy Trojans in Eugene. This year won't be any different. This game will be over by the end of the third quarter and LaMichael James makes his Heisman statement.

Michigan State(+6.5) vs Iowa
Iowa has to win to stay in the Big Ten race. Their backs are against the wall and if they lose they know they have a slim chance of reaching a New Years Day bowl. Sparty is still undefeated and riding a magical season. They are the only undefeated Big Ten team left but have been winning narrowly much like Iowa did last season. The magic ends today.

Nebraska vs Missouri (+7)
I know this will sound dumb to Missouri fans because Nebraska is their biggest rival but this is a classic letdown game. They pulled off the shocker last week in beating Oklahoma. This week they got to travel to Nebraska who appeared to get their mojo back and more importantly their T-Magic working against Okie State last week. I think the Cornhuskers win but don't cover.

Notre Dame vs Tulsa(+8)
It's been an awful week for Notre Dame. They got destroyed by Navy and then lost ND student/videographer Declan Sullivan to a horrible accident on their practice field a few days later. The Notre Dame community has come together for support but I still wonder when the football team comes together and plays as a team. The passion has been gone for a while and unfortunately the team looks like it is regressing again as the season progresses. Tulsa has an offense that can put a lot of points on the board (7th in the nation) and will come in to South Bend expecting to win against a deflated Notre Dame team.
