What a great weekend of college football. In last weeks’ game of the week, we saw the WVU Mountaineers beat out the Baylor Bears 70-63 in the highest scoring Big 12 football game ever. Heisman Trophy candidate Geno Smith threw for an amazing 656 yards and 8 touchdowns. Perhaps most impressive is that Smith had more touchdowns (8) than incompletions.
This week we have another great lineup of college football games. In fact, there are five games that will feature two Top 25 ranked teams. None of these is bigger than or week 6 game of the week between the South Carolina Gamecocks and Georgia Bulldogs. Even though the Bulldogs are ranked #5 and the Gamecocks sit at #6, there are still 2 other SEC currently ranked ahead of them (Alabama and LSU). This is a must win game if either team has hope of earn a trip to a BCS Bowl.
So without further adieu, here are the best games this week to focus your ticket marketing efforts on.

9. Wisconsin Badgers vs Illinois Fighting Illlini
Both programs are down this year but that won’t stop Illinois fans in the Chicago area from heading up north to Madison.
10. Cal Golden Bears vs #25 UCLA Bruins
Another in-state rivarly game. This game is even more interesting as the Bruins are ranked in the top 25 for the first time in a long while. Cal would like nothing more than to knock them down a peg.
