Let's just say last week didn't offer the most compelling games.
There were close ones, for sure, but the only game between BCS top-25 teams turned out to be a blowout when TCU beat BYU 38-7.
This week could be the complete opposite. Two Saturday games are far and away the best matchups of the weekend and should have BCS implications: USC at Oregon in the Pac-10 and Texas at Oklahoma State in a game that could settle the Big 12 South -- and possibly the whole league.
There's one major rivalry game (Florida-Georgia), a showdown between coaches who aren't afraid to speak their minds (South Carolina at Tennessee) and a potential defining moment for a non-Big Six program (Central Michigan at Boston College).
Though you probably don't need much help this week, here are our picks for the top five games Saturday and a look into the nationally televised games on Thursday and Friday.
All times Eastern.
