Three games between ranked teams this week but only one of them really matters. Miami travels to Blacksburg to face Virginia Tech in a game that they better win and win big if they want a chance to move up to number two in the BCS. Miami is probably overrated at number five, but they’re a solid defensive football team that definitely has a chance to upset the Hokies and put themselves in position for an ACC title and a BCS berth of their own. The eyes of Texas will certainly be tuned to ESPN for this one.

    Dude I am a genius, check out the UCLA score!! The game isn’t over yet but I think 45 points is a little too much for a 4th quarter comeback this time. The BCS is our friend tonight too. Two important VT opponents went down (BC and Florida State) and all the teams we needed to win have so far.

    Sure hope I end up wrong with my Miami/VT pick.

    You were wrong about VA tech. Great weekend for the longhorn faithful. BC sucks. Over freaking rated VA tech does too, apparently. How many turnovers in the game??? 6 or so?

    I don’t think I was wrong about VT but I was about the game. I knew they were overrated but I thought Miami was probably equally overrated. I thought they’d win because Miami wasn’t that great. Glad I was wrong about the game, really shuts a lot of people up.
