Game of the Week: #19 Penn State @ #1 Alabama
Penn State - Untested QB with O-line issues....I don't like their chances, however they seem to have awesome special teams.
Alabama - More than likely no Ingram again. Richardson is capable, but I don't think Lacy will have as successful run against a much better defense.

Had this been in Happy Valley, I would probably pick Penn State.

NCAA Game of the Week - #13 Miami (FL) @ #2 Ohio State

The only reason why this is here instead of Penn State/Alabama is because I truly feel Alabama is the only one of the two that have a shot at the National Championship whereass, both Ohio State and Miami have a shot at the National Championship. Although if Penn State wins this battle, I'm going to have to re-evaluate their chances to win the Big10.

Both teams feature a smothering defense (both defenses pitched shut outs) and a high powered offense. Both teams feature a mobile QB. It's hard to write a real review of both teams due to both playing overmatched opponents last week.

Honestly, I'm picking Ohio State due to the home field advantage. This will be the most raucous environment the current contingent of Miami players have ever played in.

While I'd love to see us (PSU) win. I agree that our offensive line and true freshman qb will give JoePa problems.
