If you thought we had some great college football match-ups last week, you better brace yourself as this week is even better. In the Week 7 Game of the Week (GOTW) we have the #13 Oklahoma Sooners facing the #15 Texas Longhorns. It’s no secret that this is one of the biggest rivalries in college football. However, this year the game is even bigger as both teams are in the running for the Big 12 title and a berth in a BCS Bowl game.
Another huge game this week features two of the top teams in the SEC, if not the country. Ninth ranked LSU will look to rebound after a tough loss to the Florida Gators against the #3 South Carolina Gamecocks. Last week the Gamecocks absolutely destroyed the #5 Georgia Bulldogs last week. Baton Rouge will be rocking this weekend!
