As I write this, it is 8:53 am. AND OKLAHOMA STILL SUCKS!!! Welcome to a very special Saturday that occurs once per year: TEXAS-OU WEEKEND.
The Red River Rivalry is both Texas’ and Zero U’s biggest game of the season. It assigns bragging rights for the next 51.5 weeks to the victors of this neutral site battle royale. Plus, it’s in the middle of the State Fair of Texas, so it’s deep fried.
Tennessee (9) at Texas a&m (8) today should be a humdinger! Kyle Field can be an intimidating place to play. The Ags have Trevor Knight as QB, who is actually a Sooner from ou. He’s having one hell of a year, but I’m asking (pleading) the Vols to crush him and the rest of the stupid aggys. PLEASE GOD, LET LIGHT ORANGE WIN THIS GAME.
UPSET ALERT: Florida State over Miami. Why?I’m not sure, but I just have a sneaking suspicion that the Seminoles will rage against the dying of the light (AKA being out of the top 25) and will snuff the the ‘Canes out of the top 10. Not by much, but I think they’ll do it. Plus, the spread is only -3, so it’s a safe call for me to make.
When was the last time you heard “Colorado is a favorite over USC”?!?! The 80's? Early 90's?! Wait, never mind, USC is still favored regardless of the rankings difference. That’s bullshit.
Here’s the schedule, in Central Time:
Hurricane Mathew cancelled the LSU/Flo-Rida game. Oh well. Watch Texas-OU instead. Offense will be lighting it up on both teams, because Big XII doesn’t defense, apparently.
Who you for? Who you against? Let’s get some foosball!!
