Thanksgiving/rivalry week has several college football games for fans to be thankful for. The BCS picture is anything but decided at this point and a few games could really alter the standings this week. The obvious one is a showdown between the #1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the USC Trojans.
If the Irish can pull off this road win they all but lock up their spot in the National Championship game, which seems even more likely now that QB Matt Barkley is out for USC. Confidence is still floating around the USC camp as red-shirt freshman QB Max Wittak was quoted saying ”We’re going to win this ballgame” in an interview with ESPN radio. How about you win one game before you guarantee a win against the #1 team Wittak.
Don’t forget about the Iron Bowl this week! Does anyone think that Auburn can beat that 31 point spread? All we know is that the Bama faithful are going to be a treat next week if this does end up being a blowout. Roll Tide!

With USC quarterback Matt Barkley having been ruled out of Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury, most people have already penciled Notre Dame into the BCS National Championship game. Max Wittek, Barkley’s freshman backup who has attempted only nine passes in his collegiate career, is here to tell those people to pump the brakes.
“We haven’t got the full game plan yet, but...
Game of the Week: (1) Notre Dame at USC8:00 PM ET – ABCUSC has won this game nine times in the last decade and will look to tack on one more ruby to the Jeweled Shillelagh as the Trojans try and play the spoiler to the Irish.

USC redshirt freshman QB Max Wittek has three carries on the season for negative 13 yards. He may not be good at running the ball, but he's making a name for himself running his mouth after guaranteeing a USC victory over Notre Dame yesterday.

Unlike the 2012 Draft when many NFL teams were drooling over all of the top-flight talent available to them at the quarterback position, next year’s crop of signal callers is short on expectations, if not talent. Only two QBs, USC Matt Barkley and West Virginia Geno Smith are sure fire, first round material, and that is with an asterisk. The rest of the 2013 NFL Draft QB class...
Does anyone really want to see another all-SEC rematch in the BCS national championship game? Except for those in SEC country, the answer is a resounding “no.” Last year’s 21-0 Alabama title victory over LSU was rather dull to everyone but Tide fans.
But after losses by the BCS’s top two teams, Kansas State and Oregon, this past weekend, the possibility remains that two SEC...

There’s more than a place in this year’s BCS Championship on the line at the LA Coliseum this weekend. This is rivalry weekend. There’s pride on the line.
