    2) Oklahoma v. Texas

    ‎‎"Ministers of the Gospel, when dispensing the truths of God, must preach home to their own souls, as well as unto others. Sir's, we do not deliver truths or doctrines to you, wherein we ourselves have no manner of concern. No, our own souls are at the stake, and shall either perish or be saved eternally, as we receive or reject these precious truths which we deliver unto you. And truly, it can never be expected that we will apply the truths of God with any warmth or liveliness unto others, unless we first make a warm application thereof to our own souls. And if we do not feed upon these doctrines, and practise these duties, which we deliver to and inculcate upon you, though we preach unto others, we ourselves are but castaways." -- Ebenezer Erskine, "The Assurance of Faith", pg. 8

    Certainly. But the way I have the games listed should be with the visitor listed first and the home team second. I'll double-check and fix the OP.

    Yeah, I thought about that, but I believe I had two Little-11 games last week. Besides, I did include Notre Dame (about the only time of the year that will happen, and ND might as well be a Little-11/12 team), and all the regular Little-11 games this week stink (with the possible exception of Minnesota at Penn St.; if they had been playing in Minn, I might have included it, but no way the Gophers win at Penn). And I think the Alabama/SC game will be better than most folks expect.

    Oklahoma vs. Texas: We always pray it will be cold enough to prepare our traditional Frito chili pie for watching that game. Looks like we're set for this year. It's been near freezing here!

    Here in the Dallas area it's going to be 65 degrees and sunny for the game. Pretty near perfect football weather.

    1) Cincinnati at South Florida => South Florida (so Miami can beat another ranked team later in the year)
    2) Oklahoma v. Texas => Texas (Oklahoma is toast)
    3) USC at Notre Dame => USC (hate the "domers")
    4) Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech => Va Tech (but I'm rooting for Ga Tech [go 'Canes])
    5) South Carolina at Alabama => 'Bama (Just because)

    The tie-breaker, should it come to that: Georgia at Vanderbilt (pick winner and score) => Georgia 24-10

    Oklahoma has lost the last 4 out of 5 to Texas. They should fire someone.

    The Hogs did put on a good show today. While the loss has to hurt, they should be proud of their effort.

    I was hoping that they could pull it out.

    You don't know how bad I was hoping they beat Florida.

    Florida has come to earth the past few weeks and looks very beatable now. I will be surprised if they emerge unscathed this season. Certainly Alabama looks like a better team at this point, should they meet in the SEC Championship game.

    Barring any second half disaster on the part of Alabama, it looks like Cold Silver Moon will win this week, being the only person to go 5-0. Here's an early congratulations and an early powdered wig to you, Mason:

    Congrats.

    Actually, I wanted to give a shout out to the Missus, as she picked 4 out of 5 correct this week, and wasn't too far off on the tie-breaker either. Congrats, sweetie!

    I retreat to the depths of my house and weep at a loss that should not have been. VT didn't look prepared for the triple option; executed very admirably by GT. If only the 4th quarter had been repeated in the other three quarters, the outcome would have been different. Congrats Jackets.

    Oklahoma might just win a big game if their starting qb could stay healthy.
