Action Jackson Preview, Week 12
Welcome to the calm before the storm. A relatively light week in college football, which probably means the #1 and #2 teams both go down again (hey look, I’m half-right so far!). December can’t come quickly enough for BCS opportunists. Cal-UW is at 12:30 on ABC, but here’s what else is on tap.
Oregon at Arizona, 6 PM, ESPN. Trap game? If this was the week after ASU, I’d say so, but Dixon should be back to full strength by Saturday. On the other hand, Mike Stoops is half man, half season, the Vince Carter of the Pac-10. Starts weak, gets eliminated from bowls, then roars to a strong second half and another stellar 5-7 season. Good work Stoops. Can’t wait to see you next year–gag.
Hawaii at Nevada, 8 PM, ESPN. Ahh, WAC Fridays, what would I do without you. I root for 100 points.
Ohio St at Michigan, 9 AM, ABC. Hatred. Anger. Pain. History. Rose Bowl. Keith Jackson. Wait…no Keith? Sigh.
Purdue at Indiana, 9 AM, ESPN. The Big Ten game everyone’s been waiting for!
Syracuse at UConn, 9 AM, ESPN2. Huskies still control their destiny–stomping over the Orangemen could do quite a bit.
Missouri at Kansas State, 9:30 AM, FSN. A trap game obvious to anyone who’s been watching this year.
Kentucky at Georgia, 9:30 AM, Online. Last big test for Georgia. Kentucky ready to play spoiler these last two weeks. Gators openly rooting for them the whole way.
LSU at Ole Miss, 12:30 PM, CBS. Let’s see how Les Miles turns this into a two TD comeback.
Penn St. at Michigan St., 12:30 PM, ESPN. Lord.
Oregon St. at Washington St., 3:30 PM, FSN. If you want Cal in the Sun Bowl, root for Wazzu. If you want Cal to stay in the Emerald Bowl, get some Beaver fever.
Oklahoma St. at Baylor, 4 PM, FSN. Oh man, ever felt the excitement for a Baylor game?
BC at Clemson, 4:45, ESPN. Seemed a lot more interesting two weeks ago. Would be nice to see Clemson start sticking nails into the coffin. Or gags into Matt Ryan’s puke-prone mouth. Either would work.
West Virginia at Cincinnati, 4:45, ESPN. Even if the Buckeyes falter, BCS hopes are well and alive in Ohio–if Cincinnati can crush up on West Virginia.
Oklahoma at Texas Tech, 5 PM, ABC. Mike Leach in primetime, ready to spoil up Stoopsie. Oh, the entertainment just writes itself.
