I’m in Kansas this weekend, and Michaelyn and I will be denned up during the rain today watching football! Which means I might actually get to participate in the open thread for once!
There are two big games to watch today: #3 South Carolina vs. #8 LSU, and #13 Oklahoma vs. #15 Texas. Let’s start with Texas vs. Oklahoma, where I’ll mostly be hoping the laws of logic get suspended long enough for both teams to lose.
Texas has plenty of offensive weapons, no doubt. However, their defense is only slightly improved when it gets off the bus. Texas was almost able to win the game with their offense alone against Kansas State, but not quite. I think Oklahoma is just as good as K-State and that they win by a touchdown.
As for LSU and South Carolina, this should be a phenomenal game. It’s no secret that I think Les Miles is the luckiest, most over-rated coach in the history of college football, so I’ll be rooting for the Gamecocks pretty fiercely. South Carolina’s defensive line is just unreal, which works against LSU which has been struggling with their run-based offense. Still, it’s LSU, and after last week’s loss to Florida they will be out looking for blood. I say LSU wins by a field goal, but I hope I’m wrong.
Anyway, let’s enjoy some football!
