Go Penn State! I think they have a good enough offense to exploit Nebraska's below average D. Also I was looking up stats from earlier today and Wisconsin ran for 560 yards today! It is crazy how easy their path to the championship game is.

Uhhhh....Win Penn State.  I will be cheering hard core for them.  Many despise the program but I look past all of that and root for the current kids playing at the school right NOW.  Beat Big Red

Nebraska or ND for the luckiest team this season?  I think it's ND, but you can't deny some of the breaks Nebraska has had.  They got to face us with Denard getting hurt; MSU had them beat but their thuggery lost them the game; beat NW by 1 point and squeeked past Wiscy.  I think their luck may run out today.

Mmmm Hmmm

I would say the Irish because of the impliciations of the luck.  Nebraska might luck into the B1G championship game (they could conceivably have made a BCS bowl even if they lost to Michigan) and OSU might luck into an eternity of complaining about the NCAA, but ND actually has a chance to play for a National Championship.

Deon Barnes with a nice sack there. 

Ted Roof is going to need to find ways to get guys outside or Martinez will be trying to go around them all day. 

That being said, if you're Penn State, never follow up a gift from a bone-headed block by bad pass coverage resulting in a 1st and  goal. Penn State's red zone  defense is pretty good - they'll get tested in this game, I am sure.

Nebraska's screens were doing some major property damage on that drive with Abdullah.

They talk about Martinez, but Abdullah is the story with this Husker offense. Oh, and that WR Bell.

Florida again shows just how overated they are.  Also the ACC coastal division some how looks worse than the leaders division.  Everone who is eligible is alive, though only Duke is above 500 overall.

If anyone has ESPNU, Maryland is currently playing Clemson without 4 quarterbacks, their leading rusher, their best player (a WR), and their leading tackler. It isn't going well.

Oh, wow. Zwinak lost the football with Penn State probably on the cusp of another touchdown. Compton falls on it. Cornhusker ball. Oh well, it's early yet....plenty of time to repeat that same drive except for the turnover part.

What happened to Alabama? They have looked horrible the last couple weeks. Although it is pretty funny to see a team go tempo on Saban and watch the refs try really hard to slow it down.
