Rivalry week gets cookin' in earnest Saturday, and it could be a fantastic afternoon. In any event, we know that salt levels will be high and the schadenfreude will be everywhere. That's what it's all about right there.
Thanks to TCU's win over Baylor on Friday, Bedlam on Saturday night is effectively the Big 12 title game--either Oklahoma or Oklahoma State will clinch the league title (no ties this year!) by winning. Oklahoma probably would solidify a position in the playoffs with a victory.
The early slate is is highlighted by Ohio State-Michigan, and, of course, Syracuse-Boston College. I know everybody's hyped up about that one. Georgia Tech's train wreck season ends against UGA, Virginia Tech will try to get Frank Beamer one more win over UVA, and Louisville's got Kentucky.
The mid-afternoon schedule isn't lookin' so great, which I suppose is good since we will all be occupied with State-UNC.
