A few more exciting games on today’s schedule than last week, including a big matchup for Texas against the TCU Horned Frogs. Two ranked teams and the game is on freaking FSN. The Big 12 desperately needs a better television contract if it wants to be thought of as an equal to the SEC and Big 10.

Miami at (5) Oklahoma – 11 am on ABC. Texas fans will be rooting for the Hurricanes but if OU blows this one it’s going to be tough for the Big 12 to get any respect this season nationally. Can the Sooners’ offense move the ball against Miami the way the did against UNT?

(16) Nebraska at Wake Forest – 11 am on ESPN. Wake Forest played well against Boston College last week but the Cornhuskers should be able to run away with this one. Marlon Lucky is a stud.

Fresno State at (23) Texas A&M – 2:30 pm on FSN. Could be a trap game for the Aggies. This isn’t the same top 25 caliber Fresno State team that was hanging with USC a few years back but if A&M comes out flat they’re good enough to pull off the upset.

Notre Dame at (14) Penn State – 5 pm on ESPN. Notre Dame has been an above average and overhyped team the last few years. I like watching them lose and there’s a chance they get annihilated today. And the Yankees suck too.

(19) TCU at (7) Texas – 6 pm on FSN. Texas will have to play better than last week to win today. The Longhorns can win without playing their best, but we’ll learn a lot about what kind of team we’ve got in the first quarter if the team comes out pissed off and focused.

(9) Virginia Tech at (2) LSU – 8:15 pm on ESPN. There’s a chance LSU just stomps Virginia Tech in this game. Were they playing last week with heavy hearts or are they just the average football team that they looked like against East Carolina?
