    Good game going on right now with Miami (Fl) and Cincinnati. Cincinnati has a lead but Miami playing with some fire.

    Have a bunch of top 25 match-ups this weekend as conference play starts in earnest as well.

    23 West Virginia and 15 Oklahoma should show if the Sooners are a contendor
    13 Alabama and 8 Georgia Georgia playing for the playoffs
    3 Mississippi vs. 25 Florida Sparkles looking for an upset, Ole Miss to be atop the SEC West
    21 Mississippi State vs 24 Texas A&M Another SEC battle, Lots of ranked teams because after all ES(ec)PN says they are great.
    6 Notre Dame vs. 12 Clemson Can Clemson put ND out of their misery.

    Some big PAC games this week as well
    Arizona vs. 18 Stanford
    Arizona State vs. 7 UCLA

    Probably not unless he delivers like 9 wins. He needed this win tonight. He's now 3-1 with FSU, VT, Clemson and Duke his upcoming opponents. November is favorable to him (UVA, UNC, GT, Pitt). The Canes look on track for 7-5 or 8-4. 7-5 won't be enough. 9-3 probably saves him.

    Will be interesting to see what this Pac12 is really made of and we find out a lot this weekend.
    I earlier watched ASU get wrecked, but had all kinds of mistakes and bad bounces.

    Just watched the UA vs UCLA game. Classic example of some things just not going UA's way:
    UA opens with a good drive capped by a long TD pass from Solomon.
    UCLA answers with a similiar drive and long TD pass from Rosen.
    UA's backup center then snaps over QBs head, UCLA ball in red zone, and the cash it, 14-7.
    UCLA gets ball back and puts together strong drive with nice Rosen passes and power running behind Perkins.
    UA's backup center then snaps some poor snaps. Solomon gets his timing messed up from one, and RB bumps ball out of his hands, again in red zone. UCLA cashes. 28-7 in a blink.
    Solomon doesn't look great, as his release is slow.
    Rosen looks like he's going to be really good. Better than Hundley for sure, as he has better fundamentals and is thus more accurate.
    He's young, so pressure can mess him up pretty good.

    I suspect there's quite a bit of parity in this league.

    The 3 blow out wins had more to do with turnovers and then snowballing than anything else. I still think UU is a better team than UO, but not THAT much better.

    I really think if we don't turn it over and keep it close going into the 4th quarter, we are better conditioned (esp at altitude) and have a shot at beating UO. But the key is winning the TO battle...something we've done in our 3 wins.

    Could be a bad year for the PAC.

    North looks like some teams are down including Oregon. South has a lot of good teams but each has just enough flaws to mean they can beat each other enough to drag the rankings of the whole league down.

    Might be hard for the PAC to get a spot in the playoff this year.

    Don't count out USC, UCLA, or Stanford just yet.

    Not counting them out, each is good enough to get there if things break right. Concern is teams knocking each other off letting somebody from a conference that has an easier conference schedule slide in. (Big 10 for example)

    You just described every P5 conference in 2015.

    Schools like Ohio State and Michigan State have much easier conference slates than the PAC 12 South, if Georgia gets past this week their path to a conference championship includes a lot of lesser conference foes,

    ACC, Big 12 have a number of teams that won't threaten the top schools.

    Could happen anywhere but easy to argue that winning the PAC12 South and staying clean doing it may be the hardest task in college football this season. Only Utah and UCLA are undefeated so far so one more loss for any of the others effectively ends their shot. One loss would probably knock Utah out, UCLA may be able to advance with one loss.

    I highly doubt we see multiple teams finish undefeated. Every team has flaws this season, there are no dominant teams.

    Rarely do you have multiple undefeated teams. I just don't see good chances for a PAC team with 2 or more losses and USC and Stanford already have one, their margin is now slim.

    I would agree. But I would not say one loss throws anyone out of the picture automatically.

    not even a home loss to an un-ranked team throws someone out of the picture.

    I figured that it would be hard to beat some of the Oregon uniforms for ugly.

    South Florida has managed. Same basic color scheme with puke green and yellow but even uglier uniform design.

    How are we conditioned better than Oregon? The team is a track meet. We aren't talking about your 60 year old dad that comes to visit from sea level here.

    1) they do not play as fast as they used to.
    2) they do not train at high altitude

    That must be one strong individual to hold him up while he is doing all that. Good candidate to play DT if he can hold up to all that.

    If anyone has Leonard Fournette in a CFB fantasy league (are there such things?) invest heavily in him today. He could become the fastest RB ever to achieve 1000 yds in a season (4 games).

    That's because LSU hosts Eastern Michigan (my other alma mater) today in Death Valley. EMU has the lowest ranked rushing D in the FBS. It will be embarrassing, probably by the end of the 1st quarter (if not before). I can only hope that CU wins tonight to assuage my utter shame.

    There are. It's just kind of hard with so many players and teams to pay attention to that can get you points vs. the NFL.

    OU v. WVU is a pretty decent matchup to get in the early window.

    WVU is the dark horse to win the big 12.
