I think, foreseeable future, the Top Weekend Events list should be renamed as The Top College Football Games this Weekend list. Although, it should be noted and highlighted that a concert made the list this weekend. Taylor Swift’s Dallas show has attracted much fan interest and people are still clamoring for tickets.
Of note for college football this weekend especially is the Georgia vs. Tennessee game. This is a big, big game in the SEC East. If Georgia wins this game, their game with Florida on 10/29 will be a deciding one. It could potentially decide who wins the division. Georgia is expected to win this game, but only by a slim margin.
Last weekend, Auburn’s win over South Carolina surprised many; however, neither Auburn nor Arkansas has much of a chance at winning the SEC West title. That title is pretty firmly in the LSU Tiger’s hands.
The Texas Oklahoma game should be exciting, even though it seems like it’s received ZERO media attention. Texas is currently ranked 11th in the country, and no one seems to notice. Oklahoma is expected to win this game, but if Texas were to pull through, that would be huge!
Nebraska vs. Ohio is only considered a big game since it’s a Big 10 matchup. The OSU Buckeyes have had a pretty poor showing lately, and it shouldn’t be of any surprise if they lose to the Cornhuskers.
And even though Texas Tech may take an early lead, the Texas A&M Aggies should be expected to overthrow the Red Raiders easily.
