The top two games of this past week didn’t live up to the hype because Alabama and Oregon blew their games open. As weeks get deeper into conference play, the more important it is to get a win.
Game Of The Week
#17 Michigan State Spartans VS #18 Michigan Wolverines
Due to the performances that LSU and Florida had last week, I decided to give this rivalry game the nod for game of the week. Michigan State just came off a big victory over a good Wisconsin team, but is in for a whole different ball game this week. In comes the nation’s leading rusher Denard Robinson who continues to make play after play so Michigan State’s game plan should be all about him. For Michigan, their defense needs to step up and play better or this is going to be a shootout. With that being said, I like Michigan to win in a shootout.
Michigan 38 Michigan State 31
Texas A&M Over #11 Arkansas
We all know that Arkansas can score, but so can Texas A&M. If Jerrod Johnson can limit his turnovers, he will have a big game against Arkansas’ so-so defense. I like the Aggies to pull the upset with a lot of points being scored by both teams.
