Today's Preview
Our weekly "ESPN channel surfing" matchup features Miami (vs. UNC) against Michigan St. (@ Indiana). Both teams are favored by eight points, but I'd take the home team here especially with UNC's quarterback out for the game. At 3:30 p.m., Notre Dame hosts Purdue which is a "pick 'em" game, but once again I think Notre Dame is overrated and will lose this game. Also at 3:30, we have another "largest margin of victory" prop featuring Wisconsin against Florida State. Both teams are favored around 6 points, but Wisconsin should blow Michigan out to win this one. The last Big Ten matchup of the day features Illinois and Penn State. The game starts at 8 p.m., but we're looking for the team that will score last.

SEC Showdown: Alabama @ Georgia
In our game of the night, two SEC powerhouses take the field in Athens, Georgia. No. 8 Alabama is receiving seven points against No. 3 Georgia. Georgia will have the black jerseys and do not underestimate the power of uniforms to the mentality of their players. As much as I like Alabama, I think Georgia squeezes it out at home by 3.

Yesterday's Notes: Another above .500 day for Streakers with an overall winning PCT of 51.1%. Our leader is now up to 18 and with a variety of choices today it could be tough to keep the streak intact when the day is through. The top streak extender was Mr.Reliable, Anthony Kim who defeated Ernie Els on the front nine yesterday and the top streak breaker were the Louisville Cardinals who lost a close one, 26-21 to the UConn Huskies.
