Week 5

1) USF's Game

SAT 09/27 -- 7:30pm -- #13 South Florida (4-0, 0-0)  @  North Carolina State (2-2, 0-0)  --  [ESPNU]

SAT 09/27 -- 3:30pm  -- Purdue (2-1, 0-0)  @  Notre Dame (2-1, 0-0)  -- [NBC]


4) Games involving teams two ranked teams and at least one of the teams is 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: #13 South Florida, #31 Connecticut

SAT 09/27 -- 7:00pm  -- #24 Texas Christian (4-0, 1-0)  @  #2 Oklahoma (3-0, 0-0)  --  [FSN | Sun Sports]

SAT 09/27 -- 8:00pm  -- #22 Illinois (2-1, 0-0)  @  #12 Penn State (4-0, 0-0)  --  [ABC | GAMEPLAN]


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.

Highest ranked non-BCS team: #11 Brigham Young

Lowest ranked BCS conference's highest ranked team: #16 Wake Forest (ACC)

      (Pac 10: #1, Big 12: #2, SEC: #3, Big Ten: #9, Big East: #13)

UConn @ UL is a huge game for UConn.

Loserville is looking to avenge the "fair catch"  I hope UConn can keep the streak alive, but this game looks more interesting after watching UL get some offense back together against KState.

Wow, I just looked at my Big East schedule and Louisville has 6 non-Saturday games; 1 Monday, 3 Friday, and 2 Thursday. 

...and I've been complaining about our 3  :Duh

Bold predictions.  I hope Georgia wins because we would not pass them if they lose to Alabama, but we'd easily pass Alabama if they lose.  Also, I hate Saban.
