College Football Notebook (11/10)

I’ve generally accepted that the number zero is very characterizing! In the realm of sports, as in land, everything’s about “area, area and area!” A zero in the right-hand segment of the won-misfortune standings is something awesome, while one in the left-hand section, is slightly below average!

As school football enters its stretch run, anybody distantly connected with the game is very much aware that USC, Texas and Alabama (recorded arranged by the group’s BCS rankings), stay the country’s solitary unbeaten groups. Notwithstanding, there a couple of different groups with a zero in that right-hand section, with regards to meeting standings.

West Virginia of the Big East, effectively dealt with Cincinnati on Wednesday night, moving to 5-0 allied play. The Mountaineers actually have games staying on November 24 versus Pittsburgh (in Morgantown) and on December 3 at South Florida. The Mountaineers had the Big East title in their grip last year yet lost at home to Boston College 36-17 and at Pittsburgh (16-13), to complete the year. The current year’s group gives no indications of collapsing except for one won’t ever know

TCU has effectively secured the MWC title, in its first year in the group. The Horned Frogs effectively dispatched of Colorado State last Saturday (33-6), securing the school’s first out and out gathering title since winning the SWC crown in 1958. At 7-0 in the MWC, the Horned Frogs (29-point top picks!) need just beat UNLV in Fort Worth on Saturday, to complete at 10-1 in general and 8-0 allied play. Incidentally, the group’s just misfortune in 2005 came against an old SWC rival, SMU. Only multi week in the wake of opening the season by winning 17-10 in Norman versus the Sooners (as very nearly four-TD longshots), TCU lost 21-10 at SMU, a group that is only 3-6 on the year.

At any rate one of school football’s seven excess gathering unbeatens HAS to lose this end of the week. Boise State and Fresno State of the WAC (both 5-0), meet Thursday night on ESPN. Boise State entered the WAC in 2001 and in that absolute first year, finished Fresno’s 17-game home series of wins with a 35-30 triumph as a 16-point dark horse. In the wake of losing at La Tech sometime thereafter, Boise started a gathering series of wins that is arrived at 31 games! During that run, the Broncos are an amazing 21-10 ATS.

คาสิโน1688 Notwithstanding the way that Boise possesses that long gathering series of wins and have beaten Fresno in each of the four gatherings since joining the meeting (winning by a normal score of 41-21 and goings 4-0 ATS), the Bulldogs are strong top choices (in excess of a TD) in Thursday’s down. Fresno State is without a doubt an expert, as the Bulldogs are 38-5 SU at home since 1998 and enter their confrontation with the Broncos at 7-1 (just misfortune at 8-1 Oregon, 37-34) and positioned No. 20 in the AP (current BCS positioning is 22).

The champ of Thursday’s standoff will probably win-out the remainder of the route in gathering play however it’s no ‘lock.’ Boise gets a simple game at home versus Idaho yet should play at La Tech (7-1 SU at home since 2004). With respect to Fresno, subsequent to venturing out to USC on December 19 for a non-gathering game, the Bulldogs should go to Reno, where Nevada has gone 9-2 SU and ATS in its last 11 home games. Fresno completes the season with a game against La Tech at home.

Returning to the country’s best three groups, USC faces the one school that is given them the most difficulty the most recent couple of years. USC takes a 31-game series of wins into its game at Cal this Saturday, just as a 14-game street series of wins and a 21-game Pac-10 series of wins. Cal was the last group to beat USC, 34-31 in triple-OT back in 2003. Cal nearly beat the Trojans last year in Los Angeles losing 23-17 and in 2003, losing 30-28. Including some more dramatization along with everything else, a USC win will tie Cal’s Pac-10 record series of wins of 22 straight, set from 1947-50. USC is a 18 1/2-point top pick and will close the year with home games against Fresno State and UCLA (Trojans have won 25 straight in the Coliseum).

Texas, the country’s No. 2 group, goes for its seventeenth consecutive success this Saturday in Austin against Kansas. While both Texas and USC have dominated matches by comparative edges, Texas outscores its adversaries 48.3-14.3 with USC outscoring it’s anything but a normal of 49.9-20.6, the Longhorns are 8-1 ATS while the Trojans are only 4-5! Texas is a 33-point top choice over Kansas and completions its ordinary season with a visit to College Station, where the Longhorns face the baffling Aggies. The possible rival for Texas in the Big-12 title games is Colorado, a group the Longhorns beat in Austin 42-17, back on October 15
