College Football Week 7 Preview

Welcome to Week 7 of college football. There’s a lot of great games on the horizon, so without further ado let’s jump into the action!

Texas versus Oklahoma

(15) Texas

(4-1, 1-1 Big 12)

(13) Oklahoma

(3-1, 1-1 Big 12)

This could very easily be the next great chapter in the Red River rivalry, or a blowout for either squad. Look for both teams to air it out early, with Landry Jones taking the charge for the Sooners and David Ash doing the same for the Longhorns. It all depends on how either defense does, but in all honesty Texas’s effort against West Virginia showed me that this is a team that can keep pace with a high powered offense. Landry Jones is a great quarterback, but he’s no Geno Smith.

My Pick: Texas

Stanford versus Notre Dame

(17) Stanford

(4-1, 2-1 Pac-12)

(7) Notre Dame

(5-0, 3-0 home)

If you would have asked me for the winner of this game at the start of the season, I would have said Stanford in a heartbeat. For once I was wrong about Notre Dame. They have done nothing but prove me wrong and win big games this season, and they deserve all the national recognition. It looks like Stanford has recovered from that loss in Seattle. On the other hand, if the Cardinal can’t win there you can’t really expect them to do the same in South Bend. This Irish squad just has too much momentum.

My Pick: Notre Dame

South Carolina versus LSU

(3) South Carolina

(6-0, 4-0 SEC)

(9) LSU

(5-1, 1-1 SEC)

Well if it isn’t the game of the week. Look for both teams to run the ball and try to make big defensive plays. It’s going to be loud in Death Valley and I expect both quarterbacks to struggle. This is a big change for Marcus Lattimore to prove that all of this Heisman talk about him isn’t hot air. I say that he gets a touchdown or two, and helps the Gamecocks get one step closer to an SEC east title and potentially meeting Alabama in the SEC Title game.

My Pick: South Carolina

Texas A&M versus Lousiana Tech

(22) Texas A&M

(4-1, 2-1 SEC)

(5-0, 2-0 home)

This is a David versus Goliath matchup. The upstart Bulldogs are a strong contender to bust the BCS, but you have to question the quality of play in the WAC, and I think that Texas A&M gets the best of this team considering how well they’ve played the SEC elite so far. According to, the last time these two teams met, A&M won 37-17 in 2010. The score might be a little closer, but I don’t think much else will change after that.

My Pick: Texas A&M

My Record: 16-10

I’ll have NFL posted tomorrow, have a good night.
