NCAA Football Late Live Thread

Alabama And Virginia Tech Square Off, With Title Hopes On Their Mind [NCAA Football Live Thread]

9/5/09 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5234 respect

We haven't seen any huge upsets yet today, but there's time left, and there are some incredible games left on today's slate.

The biggest game of the evening is at 8:00 pm EST, when #5 Alabama takes on #7 Virginia Tech. This game could have some huge National Championship implications, and the winner will get a very nice boost in the rankings, while the loser will likely drop out of the top 10 for now.

Another big game is a matchup of two high-powered offenses as Max Hall and #20 BYU visit defending Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford and #3 Oklahoma. Which defense will be able to slow down the other team's aerial assault? Or will it just end up being a shootout?

Here's the schedule of the games with ranked teams, and national televised games. All games are listed in Eastern Standard Time:

6:00
Citadel at #21 North Carolina

7:00
Charleston Southern at #1 Florida
Florida Atlantic at #24 Nebraska
#20 BYU vs #3 Oklahoma (@ Cowboy Stadium) [ESPN]
Louisiana-Monroe at #2 Texas
Northern Colorado at #25 Kansas
Northern Illinois at Wisconsin [Big 10 Network]

8:00
#5 Alabama at #7 Virginia Tech [ABC]

10:00
Maryland at #12 California [ESPN2]

10:30
#11 LSU at Washington [ESPN]

 Actually, after much more alcohol, I blame myself. I should never have tried to break in a new OU t-shirt on a game day against a top-25 opponent...

Ya, your right, they did dominate {just kidding}. The defence played superb and held down Bradford when he was in the game.

OK, calling Bradford's injury a sprain.  If we can get by tonight, we've got Idaho St and Tulsa, then a week off before Miami and October...

Just have to get by tonight. Go Landry Jones!

nice pick by reynolds. btw why did he change his number from 8 to 4?

9/5/09   |   redsox1002003   |   881 respect

a lot of mistakes by the new ou o-line, but they still lead the flying mormons 7-0.... honestly im just watching this game until alabama/vt kickoff.

BYU has smaller and slower corners and a brand new linebacking group while OU returns 9 full time starters and 1 part time starter. OU wins this one big behind the defense. Plus Max Hall struggles against actual defenses as evident from the 4 picks he threw against Arizona last season.
