    Game of the Week: (5) Notre Dame at (8) Oklahoma

    By Josh Adams -

    Oklahoma SoonersIt’s quite a weekend of good matchups in college football. In the Big 12 K-State vs. Texas Tech, the SEC has Georgia vs. Florida and Alabama vs. Mississippi State, the Big Ten features Ohio State vs. Penn State and in the ACC, the surprising Duke Blue Devils and Florida State face off with first place at stake.

    What sticks out though is the odd October non-conference matchup between Notre Dame and Oklahoma. The teams agreed to a home and home matchup for 2012 and 2013, and the Fighting Irish travel to Norman, OK for their toughest test of the season. It’ll be a battle of two historic programs who both field top 10 teams. If Notre Dame wins, their national championship hopes stay alive in 2012, and they bring a tough as nails defense to face QB Landry Jones and an experienced Oklahoma team that is determined not to lose twice at home this season. Here’s what to look for between these two teams in Norman on Saturday: Read Full Story »

    Game of the Week: (4) Kansas State at (13) West Virginia

    By Josh Adams -

    Geno SmithThe 4th-ranked and undefeated Kansas State Wildcats visit the 13th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers this Saturday night in a big time Big 12 battle. Both of these teams reflect their two quarterback strengths. K-State relies on a ground and pound type offense led by QB Collin Klein. West Virginia has used the precision passing of QB Geno Smith to lead a high powered offensive game plan that has put eye popping numbers on the scoreboard.

    The Mountaineers offense was derailed last week in Lubbock by Texas Tech and looks to rebound quickly at home. K-State was challenged at Iowa State last weekend, but emerged with a victory over an inspired Cyclones team. The challenge for both WVU and K-State is to play their type of game and not play into the others strength. It should be a fascinating contrast of styles, and a huge Big 12 victory for the winner. Here’s what to look for between the lines in Morgantown. Read Full Story »
