PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Hard to believe I've reached a point where I'll spend a Saturday rooting for Missouri and Washington, but there it is
Oregon = Craig James.
Washington = Hooker.
It's not going to end well for Washington.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Alas, so it is with me, too. Georgia faltering here is probably more likely than the Ducks getting roasted, but here's hoping!
I’ll go with Oregon Vs. Washington I don’t think Oregon has been tested yet this year, they have steamrolled everyone they have played so far. OSU has been tested and although shaky they have well-earned wins. I think Washington will be the first real test for the Ducks. I also am interested in Texas A&M Vs. Ole Miss and Oklahoma Vs. Texas.

One of the few chances Oregon has to lose, and we absolutely need that - coupled with them in turn beating Stanford, to help out with our chances of getting into the MNC. Sarkisian has done a great job with Washington in such a short amount of time. Go Huskies!
To me, Oregon's only shot of losing is against Stanford. Though I could also see them stomping on Stanford as well.
Oh, I completely agree. But it sure would be nice to get an Oregon loss sooner, rather than later.
To the undefeated Buckeyes, games involving an undefeated Alabama, Oregon, Clemson, Stanford, Florida State, or Oklahoma, .....are going to be more interesting than those involving any one loss SEC team (As Missouri will lose @ GA)
So Oregon @ Washington. Go Huskies!!
No mention of Oklahoma-Texas?
I'm kind of excited to see the Sooners eviscerate the Longhorns and put Mack out of his misery.
That might be a problem. Anytime Oklahoma is expected to do anything, they seem to fail miserably at it.
I cannot argue with this.
Chokelahoma Sooners you say?
Oregon - Washington could do wonders for Ohio State....but hard to see that result working out.
Also interested in The Red River Rivalry, MassACKre edition, that one is going to be a train wreck.

There is no need to watch the SEC games. If the underdog wins it is proof positive of how strong the league is. If the favorite wins it is proof positive of how strong the league is.
Go Mizzu and Go Huskies! It's time to start rooting for the upsets...OSU needs them to happen to the "elite" teams, if you want to call them that.
Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.
Don't sleep on the Missouri Tigers
I don't care about watching any SEC game anymore because no matter what happens one team will have a great win that is better than any win Ohio State has ever had and ever will have, and whoever loses will have a tough loss that doesn't end their championship hopes because a five loss SEC team can get in ahead of us.
1.Washington has a 58-42-5 record (sounds similar to another record not exact but very close), against Oregon but have lost the last 9 and are due, they have been whipped i all those games, they came up short last week in Palo Alto, my heart says Huskies, my mind says the other guys.
3. Georgia got beat up pretty bad last week, will struggle but since I'm rooting for them Georgia pulls another one out.
2. Florida has split there last 4 trips to the Red Sticks. I should use reverse Psychology and root for LSU this week and Alabama against LSU in a few weeks, but I don't think that works.
4. aTm losing at Ole Miss would be nice,
Cal beating UCLA (not happening),
Baylor losing to Kansas State (not happening either)
South Carolina getting beat at Arkansas coached by Bretty Bielema (quite possible).
Oklahoma is bad, but Texas worse.
I may not be able to outsmart too many people, but I can outwork 'em.
Im looking for Clemson to lose that one game they seem to lose every years they should'nt to BC this weekend. Would also be nice to see Org go down then in return knock off Stanford later.
my heart says Huskies,
Me thinks something might be wrong with your heart.
Oklahoma is bad
Is there a theoretical chance where either oregon/stanford lose, meetup in the PAC12 champ game and then the other team loses allowing tOSU to leapfrog both of them?
Not possible as they are in the same division.
Forget Oregon-Washington, I'll be watching Oregon State-Washington State

I think this will be a very tough test for Oregon. Husky stadium is a great home-field advantage, and UW people HATE Oregon. It will be crazy. Sark has already developed a knack for upsets, and he would love to knock off Oregon. I think DeAnthony Thomas being out will help the Huskies win this one.
Huskies 40 - Ducks 38.
Don't text while driving.
This is perfect. Look... the Dogs just scored 500! And they say Oregon can rack up the points...
The MU folks in these parts are pretty confident in their Tigers. Not confident enough to think they will win between the hedges, but that are feeling pretty strong. Curious to see how that goes.
I'll be at the UW vs. Oregon game. I live just south of Husky Stadium. I root for the Huskies when they're not playing the Buckeyes. It's actually relaxing to root for them, because my week isn't ruined if they lose.
I think the Huskies have more of a chance than people think. Their defense is much improved overall. Also, their offense is now up-tempo-no-huddle, so the defense is used to playing at that speed.
Arizona is no Oregon, but the styles are similar and UW held Arizona to 13 points.
Go Huskies! Get the Buckeyes to #2! LOL.

Oregon and Washington all the way. This is the first real test for Oregon and it happens on the road. I can see Washington walking away with this one.
Michigan vs. Penn State - How can you beat watching Michigan lose? Worst case scenario, Penn State loses! What a great day!
The Oregon game has huge implications for the Buckeyes. I'm a huge Husky fan this weekend.
