    Don't know if anybody's looked ahead to this weekend yet, but it could really get interesting. Lots of teams have some tough games ahead of them that would really mess up the rankings. Take a look (all rankings are BCS):

    #1 Ohio State: at #25 Penn State
    #2 Boston College: at #8 Virginia Tech
    #3 Louisiana State: BYE
    #4 Arizona State: hosts #21 California
    #5 Oregon: hosts #12 USC
    #6 Oklahoma: BYE
    #7 West Virginia: at #27 Rutgers
    #8 Virginia Tech: hosts #2 Boston College
    #9 Kansas: at #36 Texas A&M
    #10 South Florida: at #23 Connecticut

    Lots of big games...which ones look the most interesting?

    I think BC vs. VT looks to be the best game this weekend. Or maybe I'll watch LSU vs. BYE. I hear they have a pretty good team:wink:

    As long as there are lots of losses by the teams on the left, I will be happy. Especially Ohio St.

    The VT / BC contest is one that will have a big impact...if VT wins as I suspect they will, that will help LSU out a great deal...both because it puts a loss onto someone currently ahead of them...but also because they pounded VT earlier in the season.

    Man BYE has to play Okla and LSU on the same weekend, that has to be rough on them. I see they play ISU next week too. Maybe Okla and LSU will wear them down enough to give ISU a shot for win number 2!

    This is why I love the BCS. Say what you want, but THIS is a playoff weekend.

    If there was a playoff, none of these games would really be that big of a deal. I love that from week 1, every game means something. It's one of the main reasons why I am really starting to dislike the NFL. Did the Bears Eagles game this weekend mean something for each team? Sure, but it wasn't a season-killer if either team lost.
