While the top teams are busy playing the likes of Mississippi State, Hawaii, Tennessee, and Oregon State, #8 TCU and #16 BYU are squaring off in Provo. Being a pretty devout USC fan, my Saturdays usually revolve around the Trojans. However, with about 7 minutes until kickoff, my TV figures to remain on the much-maligned Versus channel. As much as I want to watch Jacquiz Rogers run circles around the men of Troy, I’d rather see Harvey Unga running through a sea of Horned Frogs. Now, at the time of writing this, TCU has just scored their second TD jumping out to a 14-0 lead. They clearly have the edge right now, but don’t count out the Cougars just yet. If they can get the crowd at Lavell Edwards back in the game, we could be in for a finish that could rival Utah-Air Force and Clemson-Miami. Expect some signature plays from guys like Jeremy Kerley, Jerry Hughes, Max Hall, and Unga, that we’ll probably be seeing next spring during ESPN’s coverage of the NFL Draft.
Is TCU-BYU the biggest game of the day? The only other matchup of ranked teams was #24 Oklahoma vs. #25 Kansas. Weigh in below….
UPDATE: BYU is listless, and the first play I saw after switching to USC-OSU was a Jacquiz Rogers fumble. On second thought….
