Weekly Game Guide

It's Thursday night . . . do you know where your Pitt team is playing?

Actually, Washington takes on UCLA tonight on ESPN.  Air Force takes on UNLV.  It's probably on TV somewhere, but no one knows where.

In the Big Ten:

Penn State takes on Indiana at Fed Ex Field in DC.  The Lions are favored by 10.  GO STATE!

Wisconsin travels to Ann Arbor and is a five point favorite.  After seeing how many points the Badgers put up against Indiana, and knowing how great the THEM defense is, I am a bit surprised by that.  GO BADGERS!

MSU takes on Purdue and Sparty is favored by 20.  GO SPARTANS!

The Buckeyes are 3 point favorites over Iowa.  GO HAWKEYES!

Illinois plays Northwestern at Wrigley Field.  The Illini are favored by 7.5.  Go Wildcats!  Yeah, I'm still pissed at that homecoming massacre.

Minnesota has a bye week.   Will anyone notice?

In games played be previous opponents:

Western Michigan is favored by a field goal over Kent State.  GO FLASHES!

Temple lost to Ohio this past Tuesday and plays Miami (OH) next Tuesday.

Alabama plays Georgia State (NL) tonight at 7:30 on ESPN U.

In other games of passing interest:

The Irish are 8.5 point favorites over Army, playing this game in Yankee Stadium.  GO KNIGHTS!

Boise State is a 30.5 point favorite over Fresno State.  The Broncos remind me of Penn State back in the late sixties and early seventies.  A good team getting no respect.  GO BRONCOS!

Nebraska is a 2.5 favorite over Texas A&M.  GO HUSKERS!

Oregon plays Arixona on Friday, Nov. 26.
