Welcome to November, college football's most important month. Although this will be November's second Saturday, it far suprasses the first in terms of critical matchups. Several huge games dot the landscape, such as Notre Dame-Arizona State, Kansas State-TCU, Ohio State-Michigan State, Oregon-Utah,
Presbyterian-Ole Miss, Alabama-LSU and Baylor-Oklahoma. For many teams, their playoff hopes hang in the balance. For our team, the only thing on the line is maintaining the all-time series lead over Oregon State. So there's that, I guess.
Why I'm a genius: Oregon's matchup with Stanford was clearly a game between two teams headed in opposite directions. It was pretty clear that the only reason the Ducks weren't double-digit favorites was because of Stanford's recent success in the series. Oregon showed early that this would be different, and it was never really close. It was a similar situation with Cal and OSU. OSU is a shell of its former self, and Cal is miles better than it was last year. The one thing I didn't see coming was Cal winning in large part due to the running game.
Why I'm an idiot: Hey Mississippi, what the hell did I ever do to you? First Ole Miss steps all over its junk at LSU, then MSU decides to put on its most uninspired effort of the season. I thought we were on good terms, Mississippi. I love Oxford, and my son shares the name of your capital city. Why on earth are you doing me like this? Additionally, after a one-week respite, I'm back to my complete inability to figure out UCLA. The Colorado pick was also looking good until they decided to let Phillip Lindsay touch the ball. Two fumbles later, Washington was on top for good.
