- This week really begins about a month’s worth of big ranked matchups, specifically in the SEC, where Florida plays LSU, South Carolina, and Georgia all in the next four weeks. South Carolina will be sitting pretty if they’re undefeated three weeks from now. To do so, they’ll need to knock out Georgia, LSU, and Florida in their next three games.
- After handing Stanford their first loss last Thursday, Washington will travel to Eugene to face Oregon, before hosting USC at home next week.
- Meanwhile, Notre Dame faces the Hurricanes in a trap game of sorts, before Stanford rolls into town next weekend.
- West Virginia began the season a little light, but they’ll really dig into Bg 12 play this week in Austin. Texas would love a win against the Mountaineers as they enter the Red River Rivalry next week against Oklahoma.
