Week 6

1) USF's Game

SAT 10/06 - #6 USF (4-0, 1-0) at Florida Atlantic (3-2, 2-0) - 3:30pm [ESPNU]


2) Games involving one or more schools on USF's 2006 schedule.

FRI 10/05 - Utah (2-3, 0-2) at Louisville (3-2, 0-1) - 8:00pm [ESPN2]

SAT 10/06 - #13 West Virginia (4-1, 0-1) at Syracuse  (1-4, 1-0) - T.B.A. [GAMEPLAN]

SAT 10/06 - #27 Miami, FL (4-1, 1-0) at North Carolina (1-4, 0-2) - T.B.A. [ESPN2]

SAT 10/06 - Vanderbilt (3-1, 1-1) at #29 Auburn (3-2, 1-1) - 12:30pm [Lincoln Financial | GAMEPLAN]

SAT 10/06 - Elon (2-2, 0-1) at Western Carolina (1-4, 0-1) - 6:00pm

SAT 10/06 - #20 Cincinnati (5-0, 0-0) at #21 Rutgers (3-1, 0-0) - 7:00pm [ESPN2]

SAT 10/06 - #35 UCF (4-1, 1-0) at ECU - 7:30pm [CSTV]

IDLE: #36 Connecticut (5-0, 1-0), Pittsburgh (2-3, 0-1)


3) Games involving Notre Dame because of its ties to Big East bowl games.

SAT 10/06 - Notre Dame (0-5) at #30 UCLA (4-1, 3-0) - 8:00pm [ABC | GAMEPLAN]

NOTE: With the next three games for Notre Dame - at UCLA, vs Boston College, vs USC - chances are Notre Dame will not be bowl eligible.  Once Notre Dame is not eligible, we won't need to watch their games.


4) Games involving at least one team ranked higher than the 2nd highest Big East team.

If the highest and 2nd highest teams can move up and up the polls, then there is at least a chance that 2 Big East teams could make the 10 BCS slots.  Big East ranks: #6 USF, #13 West Virginia

THU 10/04 - #8 Kentucky (5-0, 1-0) at #11 South Carolina (4-1, 2-1) - 7:30pm ESPN

SAT 10/06 - #5 Wisconsin (5-0, 2-0) at #28 Illinois (4-1, 2-0) - T.B.A. [ESPN]

SAT 10/06 - Bowling Green (3-1, 1-0) at #7 Boston College (5-0, 3-0) - 12:00pm [ESPNU]

SAT 10/06 - #10 Oklahoma (3-1, 0-1) at #19 Texas (4-1, 0-1) - 3:30pm [ABC | GAMEPLAN]

SAT 10/06 - #12 Georgia (4-1, 2-1) at Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) - 3:30pm [CBS]

SAT 10/06 - #9 Florida (4-0, 2-0) at #1 LSU (5-0, 1-0) - 8:00pm [CBS]

SAT 10/06 - #4 Ohio State (5-0, 2-0) at #23 Purdue (5-0, 1-0) - 8:00pm [ABC | GAMEPLAN]

SAT 10/06 - Stanford (1-3, 0-3) at #2 Southern California (4-0, 2-0) - 7:00pm


5) Games involving a Top 12 non-BCS team, or a Top 16 non-BCS team ranked higher than any BCS conference's highest ranked team.

If no teams from the non-BCS conferences make the BCS, then that would mean 4 at-large slots in the 5 BCS bowls.  This increases the chances for 2 Big East teams to be selected.

No Mid-Major Team is ranked in the Top 12 or ahead of the lowest BCS conference leader (#7 Kentucky).  Highest ranked non-BCS team: #16 Hawaii

SUN 10/07 - Utah State (0-5, 0-1) at #16 Hawaii (5-0, 2-0) - 12:05am


6) Other games of interest, including teams ranked near USF.

USF is #6 in the AP poll.

SAT 10/06 - NC State (1-4, 0-2) at #27 Florida State (3-1, 0-1) - 3:30pm [ABC]

SAT 10/06 - #15 Virginia Tech (4-1, 1-0) at #22 Clemson (4-1, 2-1) - 6:00pm [ESPN]

SAT 10/06 - #25 Nebraska (3-1, 1-0) at #17 Missouri (4-0, 0-0) - 9:15pm [ESPN]

IDLE: #3 California (5-0, 2-0), #14 Oregon (4-1, 1-1)

Ranks used are AP rankings.

The only two of those I really see as incredible long shots are Stanford over USC and UNC over Miami. I guess Bowling Green over Boston College would be a significant upset too, but not like those other two.

Anyway, for us to go to the title game, the SEC is really going to have to help us. I don't think UF is as good as everyone thinks - witness the loss at home and the struggle against Ole Miss - so even if they beat LSU and jump us, I think it will only be temporary.

I want Florida to beat LSU, because I see the Gators losing at least one more. They play on the road against Kentucky and South Carolina and play Florida State at home; they also play Georgia in Jacksonville. No way do they win out. On the other hand, I don't see LSU losing another game; MAYBE the Tigers lose at Alabama or Kentucky, but I think it's highly unlikely. Besides, there is a decent chance we need LSU to lose two to get us in the title game.

So in conclusion, I am actually pulling for Florida this weekend. I need to go take a shower.

For the sake of clarity, here the scenario that lands USF in the title game that I think is most likely:

- USF wins out, obviously.

- UF defeats LSU, loses to Florida State and defeats LSU again in the SEC Title game.

- Wisconsin loses to Ohio State, and Ohio State loses to Michigan (there are myriad scenarios to clear the Big 10 teams out; Wisconsin could also lose to Illinois or Penn State, beat OSU ... this conference sucks).

- Cal defeats USC but loses at UCLA or at Arizona State.

UNC over UM is a possibility. Duke only lost to UM by 10 in the OB. UNC is better than Duke and they are in Chapel Hill.

I want Florida to beat LSU, because I see the Gators losing at least one more. They play on the road against Kentucky and South Carolina and play Florida State at home; they also play Georgia in Jacksonville. No way do they win out.

Besides, there is a decent chance we need LSU to lose two to get us in the title game.

Well, just to throw this into the pot. If LSU loses to UF, and UF then losses to UK/SC/UGa; there is still having to deal with UK (5-0), SC (4-1), UGa (4-1) replacing UF in that spot. The SEC could get messy, which could help or hurt us.

I don't think a one-loss UGa or South Carolina jump us into the title game. Kentucky going undefeated would pose a problem, but I don't see them beating LSU twice, so it probably won't be an issue.

UNC winning is more likely than Bowling Green.

UNC looking good early, very conservative on offense, but moving the ball.

Illinois has the lead over Wisconsin.

Here's to another good day for the Bulls!
