A Pre Thanksgiving College Football Watch List

Gary Cosby Jr./The Decatur Daily    
The third weekend in November means Thanksgiving day
football for the pros,  and conference Championship games
for college football games start to wind up.  Bowl bids are
on the line and upsets carry much more weight as previously
undefeated and #1 ranked Alabama found out last week.
I told you you'd be on the edge of your seat if by some
chance that game was close, and it was. Here's what games
are worth keeping an eye on this weekend: 
1. USC vs UCLA - Huge rivalry, and their ranked #17 and
#18,  Wow!  Add to that two former NFL head coaches
facing off here.  Should be interesting. 
2. Texas Tech vs Oklahoma St. - The loser falls out of the top
25 for the rest of the season probably never to be seen again.   
Think teams don't care about that?  Think again.  
3. Stanford vs Oregon - Stanford edged out Oregon St. last
week, but I'm afraid the in state cousin may not be a victory
in their future.  Only one way to find out. 
Honorable Mentions: 
Rutgers vs Cincinnati 
Northwestern vs Michigan St. 
Iowa vs Michigan
