Week thirteen weekend thoughts

I'll be brief since its already so late in the week.

Friday's games

Texas @ Texas A&M

The Aggies are a mess, Texas is rolling.  Mack Brown probably wants to give his quarterback one last Heisman statement.  Where do you think this is going?  That's right, Texas wins big again.

Arkansas @ LSU

It's a bit hard to get a bead on LSU at times this year, which tells me they're not being handled well by the coaches.  That said, they continue to win a lot more than they lose.  Arkansas is starting to come around, although they've been just as jumpy.  That said, I fully expect a late-season SEC "let's not lose this one" contest.  LSU is probably a little better than the Hawgs, having finished off 'Bama where Arkansas couldn't put a gimpy Georgia away.  Go with LSU here.

Arizona @ Arizona State

This thing's a lot more heated than people realize.  Recent history suggests an upset, but both teams are on nearly equal footing right about now.  So instead I'll predict a mess.  Both young quarterbacks have been fairly adequate and look to be fine passers.  ASU's a little more unbalanced offensively and softer on defense, so I guess that makes them the underdog.  Their schedule performance relative to Arizona paints a different picture, however.  I'm going with the SunDevils here.

Nebraska @ Colorado

Where's Chris Brown? The more important question is, do the Buffaloes want to win this one and have a second opportunity for slaughter before Texas?  Sure, why not.  Buffaloes win here.

Wisconsin @ Hawai'i

Barry Alvarez is a smart guy, I must say.  The man knows how to take his cold weather boys to the warm places in cold season (Rose Bowls, Hawai'i)  However, his is a bit of a trap game because many big name road teams enjoy their surroundings a little too well (see Las Vegas Bowl) and embarrass themselves on the Islands.  Hawai'i's passing game may be a bit tricky at times for the Badgers, but I think Wisconsin will score so many points that it won't matter.  Badgers win here.

Saturday's games:

Tennessee @ Kentucky

Say it ain't so?  As bad as the Vols have been, Kentucky needs a lot to outclass them.  I don't see that happening.

Virginia @ Miami

The 'Canes were embarrassed last weekend.  They'll take it out on the Cavaliers.

Florida State @ Florida

The 'Noles should have trouble offensively here.  As uneven as the Gators have been, they do have their act together for the most part and just aren't producing.  This is my way of saying I'm going with the Gators.

North Carolina @ Virginia Tech

The Hokies should have another 45-14 type win.

Notre Dame @ Stanford

This one might be competitive for a while.  I respect Walt Harris as a coach, but he's still outclassed here.  He might lose, but not before softening Notre Dame's pass defenses up a bit just in time for their bowl opponent to study some film.

Georgia @ Georgia Tech

This is fairly intriguing.  The national media is abuzz about the Tech DC and his shutdown of Miami last week (and early season offerings against Auburn and a few others).  However, I think Tech's offense is pretty lame and Georgia should scrap to a victory.
