Another week of college football is in the books and teams are still jockeying for position in the BCS Standings. This week will be no exception as the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide will meet in the SEC’s “Clash of the Titans” in this weeks Game of the Week (GOTW).
Their is certainly no love lost between these two bitter foes. LSU will be looking for revenge following their loss last year in the BCS National Championhip game. They would love nothing more than to knock Alabama out of the top spot in the standing and give themselves a shot at returning to the big game. Alabama has had a target on their back all season. They have lived up to expectations thus far but have yet to face a real challenge this year. Their only wins over ranked teams this year have been over Michigan (#8 at the time) and Mississippi State (#11 at the time)- both teams have proven to be a bit overrated. Not matter who wins, the BCS Championship picture will certainly change significantly after this weekend.
College Football Top 10 Games Week 10 (2012)
1. #5 LSU Tigers vs #1 Alabama Crimson Tide
This is the matchup college football fans have been waiting for – the re-match of the 2011-12 BCS Championship Game. LSU will need a win if they hope to have another shot at a BCS Title.

The K State Wildcats continue to dominate the Big 12 and could further build their nationals championship case with another win over a nationally ranked team.
3. #17 USC Trojans vs #4 Oregon Ducks
The Trojans have fallen back to the pack a bit but that could all change with a win over the #4 Oregon Ducks. Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will certainly be rocking this weekend!
4. #15 Mississippi State Bulldogs vs #16 Texas A&M Aggies
This should be a great game between 2 evenly matched teams in the SEC. Miss State needs a big win to maintain their relevancy in the SEC.
5. #18 Texas Tech Red Raiders vs #23 Texas Longhorns
It’s always a high anticipated game when these two Texas schools meet in a Big 12 match up. This year even more so as both are ranked and vying for a spot atop the standings.

The OSU Beavers will look to break into the top 10 with a win over a pretty solid ASU football team.
7. #6 Georgia Bulldogs vs Ole Miss Rebels
The Bulldogs return home to take on a tough Ole Miss team. Georgia will need a convincing win in order to sneak back into the top 5 and keep their BCS Championship hopes alive.
8. #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Pitt Panthers
Notre Dame will return home to face the Pitt panthers after demolishing Oklahoma last weekend. While Notre Dame should easily handle a mediocre Pitt team, fans are eager to cheer on the #3 team in the country.
9. Michigan State Spartans vs #20 Nebraska Cornhuskers
MSU need a big win over the #20 Huskers in order to solidify their chance to earn a berth to a substantial bowl game. Nebraska need another win for a chance to win the Big 10.
10. UCLA Bruins vs #22 Arizona Wildcats
The Wildcats may be the nationally ranked team but the UCLA Bruins have a better record (6-2, 3-2 PAC 12) than the Wildcats (5-3, 2-3 PAC 12). A win for UCLA and they should be a top 25 team.
