- How entertaining has Big 12 football been this year? The teams have been putting on offensive clinics weekly. This week we get treated to another huge matchup between #1 Texas and #11 Missouri. Colt McCoy and Chase Daniel square off in a game that quite possibly could decide the Heisman. The winner, at least, will likely be the frontrunner. I know Mizzou hasn't won at Texas since 1896, but this Missouri team is certainly capable of it. Talk about a tough bounce-back game for the Tigers though, having to visit the nation's current #1 team.
- In the SEC, #2 'Bama hosts upset-minded Ole Miss. We all know Ole Miss is capable of the upset, and 'Bama has been playing down to its lesser opponents this year. Which 'Bama will show up: the one that dismantled Georgia between the hedges, or the one that barely escaped Kentucky?
- Finally, tonight's ALCS Game 6. "Big Game" James Shields takes on "Mr. October" Josh Beckett. Beckett hasn't been his typical post-season self this year, so let's see how he does with the season on the line. If the Sox win tonight, look for them to complete the comeback in Game 7 and another trip to the World Series. If the Rays win, however, then who would've thought that exorcising their demons would be as easy as dropping the "Devil" from their name...
Enjoy what should be a great day for sports!
