LSU vs. Florida, Oklahoma vs. Texas – It’s Like Being a Kid in a Candy Shop
Posted by admin on October 05, 2007
To all you college football fans out there – if you are not salivating at the prospect of watching this week’s games, you are not a true fan. LSU vs. Florida? Oklahoma vs. Texas? What is this? Christmas morning come early?
I usually do not wear my emotions so blatantly on my sleeve, but honestly, the last time I was this excited over a football game was Texas-USC National Championship game. And how did that game turn out?Â OhÂ yeah, it was completely andÂ utterly amazing. Hopefully, this week’s games will also live up to the hype. With two games, featuringÂ four college football juggernauts, how could they not? I am almost too excited to give my picks. Actually, no I am not. Here’s what is going to happen.
LSU vs. Florida – LSU has recently been promoted to the #1 team in the nation. They have something to prove. Will they show that leap-frogging USC was a momentary lapse in the poll’s judgement? I don’t think so. I predict an LSU victory. While the Florida Gators are a very good team with an explosiveÂ offense led by Tim Tebow, I just don’t think they can beat the Tigers.Â For one, they just came off aÂ surprising loss to the Auburn Tigers. Also,Â LSU not only has an offense that can match Florida’s stride for stride, the TigersÂ also haveÂ arguably the mostÂ dominant defense in all of the land.Â I think this game is going to be close, but LSU will win -Â 27-17.
Oklahoma vs. Texas – This game is moreÂ of a toss up. It really depends on which Oklahoma team is going to show up. Will they be the run and gun Sooners that absolutely demolished the competition in the first four weeks of the season or will the lethargic, unimpressiveÂ soonersÂ be there on Saturday. IfÂ Bob Stoops’ squad treats the Longhorns like they didÂ Colorado,Â they will be in for a long day.Â But, if Oklahoma plays up to its ability, I don’t thinkÂ Texas canÂ weather the storm. Oklahoma is just too talented this year. Prediction – SoonersÂ - 21 – 10
