Tomorrow starts the first full Saturday of college football, with two games that have definite national title implications (SC-Auburn; UDub-Ohio St.). I would be surprised if the Pac-10 schools won either game. The Trojans are coming off a stunning 11-2 season and a blow-out victory over Big 10 champion Iowa, but they lost too much offensively to expect a repeat. Washington was overrated going into last season, and Keith Gilbertson's track record as head coach at CAL does not lend itself to optimism.
Still, don't be surprised if the Buckeyes have a tough time tomorrow night, now that Maurice Clarett is sidelined. Auburn, between 2-3 touchdowns; and Ohio State, by less than six [ed-Oops !!]. And look to see if SC brings the Songgirls, er, I mean, Song Leaders; the game might be worth taping just to see what the humidity does to the white turtlenecks.
