Found October 05, 2012 on Eye and Eer:


It's a big week for WVU and Ohio State as both try to remain undefeated, while also facing their biggest challenges of the season.

We look at the Mountaineers' chances of going to Austin and taking down the Texas Longhorns, and then we switch gears and have a little more optimistic outlook on the Buckeyes' hopes with Nebraska at home.

We also take a look at some of the other big games of the weekend, including Georgia-South Carolina and LSU-Florida. And naturally, there is just some good ol' fun banter between our hosts.
