College Football Top 10 Games Week 10 (2012)

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.

2.  #2 Kansas State Wildcats vs #24 Oklahoma State Cowboys

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.

6.  #11 Oregon State Beavers vs Arizona State Sun Devils (5-3)

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.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 6 (2012)

Georgia Bulldogs Football

The Georgia Bulldogs will host South Carolina in Tickifieds Game of the Week!

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.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 6 (2012)

1.   #6 South Carolina Gamecocks vs #5 Georgia Bulldogs

Two of the best teams in the country will go head to head with a whole lot on the line!

2.  #12 Ohio State vs #21 Nebraska Cornhuskers

The Big 10 has not been impressive this year but2 of the better teams will meet head to head.

3.  #10 Florida Gators vs #4 LSU Tigers

The Gators are the forgotten team of the SEC.  A win over LSU and the Gators will return to National prominence.

4.  #11 Texas Longhorns vs #8 WVU Mountaineers

All the talk of the Big 12 thus far has been about Geno Smith and WVU.  Texas can leap frog the Mountaineers with a big win this weekend.

5.  #2 Oregon Ducks vs #23 Washington Huskies

The Washington Huskies have surprised quite a few already so Oregon will have no excuses if they under-estimate them.

6.   #15 Clemson Tigers vs Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

While this should necessarily be a close game, this game features a pretty intense rivalry.  Fans always circle this game on the schedule.

7.  #9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Miami Hurricanes

Notre Dame Football is back!! Irish fans always travel well are all reared up to head to Solider Field in Chicago to watch Notre Dame beat up on the Hurricanes.

8.  #7 Kansas State Wildcats  vs Kansas Jayhawks

Another game that should be close but college football fans in Kansas always show up for this annual game.

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.

 

Top Weekend Events 12/2/2011-12/4/2011

Sec Championship Football GameWell, it’s that time of the week where we take a look at the hottest events happening this weekend.  No big surprise this week is dominated by college football once again as this week is “Championship Week”.  The hottest ticket this week is the SEC Football Championship game where undefeated LSU will play against the Georgia Bulldogs.  A win for LSU and they are a lock to get the opportunity to play in the BCS National Championship Game at the Super Dome in New Orleans.

Coming in at #2 is the PAC 12 Championship Game where the Oregon Ducks will face the surprising UCLA Bruins.  The Ducks should easily handle the Bruins and still have an outside shot at facing LSU in the National Championship game.  Coming in at #3 and #4 respectively are the Big 10 and ACC Championship games.  While the teams involved in these games won’t have a shot at a national title they are playing for position in BCS Bowl games.  The Badgers are Spartans are hoping for a chance to play at the Rose Bowl while Clemson and Virginia Tech are competing for a lot in the Orange Bowl.

The big rivalry game between the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys also made the list (#7).  This game means a lot to both teams as the winner will likely get the nod for the Fiesta Bowl.

Also appearing on the list for the first time are Andrea Bocelli and Cesar Millan.  Bocelli is a popular Italian tenor, instrumentalist, and classical cross-over artist who concerts are always popular around the holiday season.  Cesar Millan is know as the dog whisperer.  We aren’t sure why he appears on this list but apparently many folks in Providence Rhode Island have dogs with behavioral issues.

Rounding out the top 10 we have 3 NFL Football games.  At #8 the undefeated Green Bay Packers will head to the New Meadowlands Stadium and face a resurgent NY Giants squad.   With both teams fighting for a playoff spot, the Washington Redskins and NY Jets comes in at #9.  Last, but not least, we have the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.   This game is always much anticipated after the old Browns franchise relocated to Baltimore and became the Ravens.  The “Dawg Pound” surely has not forgot nor forgiven them.
