Week 7 Predictions

25 Missouri vs 7 Georgia:

0ap2000000247915This game intrigues me a lot.  Georgia has lost both of their star running backs, all but one of their starting wide receivers, and to top it all their punter is hurt.  On the other side Missouri is the only undefeated team in the SEC besides Alabama.  Last year was the “welcome to the SEC” year for the Tigers who had a horrific year.  The leader of this Mizzou team is senior quarterback James Franklin.  The Tigers just broke the top 25 last week and this would be a win they need to show that they can be a contender in the big bad SEC.  I think that the Tigers will shock Uga and the Bulldogs between the hedges.  Prediction: Missouri 31 Georgia 30

texas-oklahoma-red-river-rivalry-gold-jerseys-550x38912 Oklahoma vs Texas:

The Red River Rivalry has always been a huge game, but the last three years Oklahoma has scored 70 points and destroyed the Longhorns.  This game is the future of Mac Brown.  These Longhorn seniors have never beaten OU and that is a terrible feeling.  One of the things the Sooners had last year that they do not have now is Landry Jones.  I believe that the Texas Longhorns will shock the world and save Mac Brown’s job.  “Don’t Mess With Texas”  Prediction: Oklahoma 20 Texas 28

17 Florida vs 10 LSU:lsu-nike-pro-combat-uniforms

The nasty Florida defense is going against one of the best offenses in the nation.  The Tigers have the best wide receiving core and they are going up against the very best corners in football.  This game is going to be a lot higher scoring then you think it would be.  The Tigers are in Death Valley and they will find holes in the Gators stingy defense. Prediction: Florida 23 LSU 28

130928.mca_.ODE_.fbc_.Cal_.132-980x6532 Oregon vs 16 Washington: 

For the past five years the Ducks have beaten their rivals by an average of 23 points.  This year though the Huskies are no flukes.  Last week they got robbed.  They should have beaten Stanford in the Farm.  Washington has the number 1 total defense in the country but they are facing the fastest and best offense in the history of college football.  Gameday is in Seattle and their brand new stadium is going to be rocking.  Washington is back and they are better then ever.  Keith Price is the game changer for them.  In his whole career at UW he has never defeated the ducks, but few teams have.  Price had a huge game in the Farm and he put his Huskies in a chance to upset the Cardinal but the refs stole that chance away from them.  This morning Duck’s explosive playmaker De’anthony Thomas was cleared to play after suffering an ankle injury 2 weeks ago vs Cal.  This is huge for the Ducks because it takes the load off their Heismen front runner quarterback Marcus Mariota.  I can finally say that I believe in the Huskies.  I know that Washington football is back.  This is their year and they are going to beat their rival, but not this rival.  I think that Oregon will roll Washington.  Prediction: Oregon 56 Washington 17

My Preseason College Football Rankings 1-5

The days are counting down till college football arrives, although it is only summer I am already ecstatic. For the next couple days I will be counting down all of the top 25 preseason rankings starting at 1 and ending at 25.

1.  Alabama Crimson Tide: 

The Tide are the  definition of a power house, winning the National Championship three120902.14out of the last four years. Returning is star senior quarterback A.J McCarron, powerful running back T.J Yeldon, and on the defensive side of the field the heart and soul of their nasty, defense linebacker C.J Mosley. Having the best team and coach in college football, the Bama fans have been spoiled. This squad have been the leaders of the SEC’s reign of terror and they have a great chance of adding on to their legacy.

2. Oregon Ducks: 

The Ducks have recently lost their head coach Chip Kelly to the NFL, but that’s not 8347893418_f1c8fb99c8_ogoing to slow them down one bit. The last five years Oregon has really solidified themselves as a championship contender year after year. Their returning Heisman trophy favorite QB Marcus Mariota, deadly kick returner/running back De’Anthony Thomas also known as the Black Mamba, and hard hitting defensive back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. The Ducks are the fastest and best dressed team in college football, but they are also a force to recon with.

3. Ohio State Buckeyes: 

The Buckeyes went a perfect 12-0 last season, but because of NCAA allegations theyNCAA Football: Michigan at Ohio State couldn’t go to a bowl game or the National Championship. This year they have standout quarterback Braxton Miller returning. He is one of the Heisman trophy favorites and he has become more of a leader on this team. Adding Coach Urban Meyer last year was a great decision. The Buckeyes are looking to have a great season if they keep Miller healthy. He took way too many hits last year, which lead to a number of injuries. If Braxton Miller gets hurt you can just throw their season down the drain.

4.  Texas A&M Aggies: 5095f8fdd4a1a.preview-300

 The Aggies had a total bounce back season after the terrible one they had before. The main reason for this turnaround is last year’s Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel. They have a stingy defense and we know on offense Manziel can just explode for a touchdown. They can run with Alabama and Georgia and now are a new power house that has been added to the SEC. If Texas A&M can keep Johnny Football out of trouble they will have a phenomenal year.

5.  Georgia Bulldogs: Buffalo+v+Georgia+1j4zX3oWr5tl

The Dawgs were one play away from the National Championship last year, but they just couldn’t finish. Key players returning this year are star quarterback Aaron Murray and running back Todd Gurley. They have a stellar defense and two of the best running backs in the game, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. They are a monster in the SEC and it looks like they will be next year too.

Check back tomorrow for teams 6-11!
