Noteworthy Games this Week 2
This week, the PAC-10 has the chance to make a statement for its conference in these 3 games.
1. #9 Iowa at #24 Arizona, 7:30pm, Sept. 18 - This is the biggest game in CFB this week. Iowa is a darkhorse to make the National Championship game with a veteran QB, power running game and a dominant D led by DE Clayborn, a sure 1st round talent. Arizona has the most productive QB in the PAC who has revived the program behind a good O-Line and a solid defense. I give the nod to the home team, Arizona 24 Iowa 17.
2. #8 Nebraska at Washington 12:30pm, Sept. 18 - Huskies looked bad against BYU and seemed to wake up against Syracuse. Nebraska's D is hungry to dismantle another highly though of QB and has a dual threat QB who should give Washington's D fits. If Locker wants to be in the Heisman race, a win here will put him in it. Nebraska 28 Washington 14.
3. Arizona State at 11 Wisconsin 12:30pm, Sept.18 - ASU brings what should be one of the nations top run D's, albeit most undisciplined, led by super sophomore MLB Vontaze Burfict to face one of the nations top rushing attacks. Wisconsin's O-Line averages 320 lbs and John Clay is an imposing RB weighing in at 255lbs. This is Burfict vs. Clay, something has to give. ASU also brings its new no-huddle spread attack against a vulnerable pass D. Wisconsin 27 ASU 13. (I just don't have any faith in my Devils after two atrocious years....)
SDN Record: 5-1
