Dubious Rivalry of the Week
Akron @ Toledo, Toledo, OH
Zips vs Rockets. I was expecting this to be a real rivalry, but they have only played 19 times. Toledo leads 10-9. This didn’t play between 1947 and 1992. I am sure there is a reason, but I don’t care enough to look it up. Akron led 6-2 before the hiatus, but Toledo has won 9 of the last 11.
Tailgate of the Week
Fresno St @ San Diego St, San Diego, CA
After last week’s boozy punch, I am going cold turkey and talking beer only. So San Diego was an easy choice for the week.
Beer: I was going to list them, but a link is easier. Enjoy.
Game of the Century of the Week
USC @ Notre Dame, Sound Bend, IN
This has been a big game in the past and is again, because Notre Dame has decided not to suck this year. I think both are overhyped, but the winner is still around for discussions of the playoffs for at least another week.
Notre Dame leads the all time series 44-36-5. Instead of alternating between October in Indiana and November in California, they should reverse it. I would like to USC playing in northern Indiana in late November.
And like every other ranking system, Alabama is now #1. I can’t explain Florida, they moved into the to 25 with a loss. **shrug** Computer systems, watcha gonna do?
Falling out: Maryland, Texas Tech, UCLA, Navy.
