These two ACC teams come into this match with a perfect record of 2 wins and no losses after narrowly winning their last match. Indeed, the legendary coach Mack Brown and North Carolina hardly triumphed over Boston College last week and their duel this weekend promises to be just as tough against one of the best ground attacks on the circuit, led by the running back. Khalil Herbert (312 yards and 3 TDs in 2 games played).
Oklahoma vs Texas (22)
The time of the year has finally come: the Red River Rivalry is upon us. These two rival teams, separated by the Red River which rises between the state of Texas and that of Oklahoma, are probably the worst enemies of the NCAA and put on a memorable spectacle every year: 34-27 Oklahoma last year , 48-45 Texas in 2018, 29-24 Oklahoma in 2017, etc. In short, a rivalry that will keep you on the end of your chair. Here is a small glimpse of the hatred these two programs have towards each other:
This uneven confrontation could surprise many people. Indeed, Arkansas caused a surprise last week by knocking down Mike Leach and the Mississippi State Bulldogs, who had just served a correction at LSU the previous week. Quarterback Felipe Franks, a transfer from the Florida Gators, has proven himself capable of playing effective football by completing 20 of his 28 passing attempts for 212 yards, 1 touchdown and no interceptions.
As for their opponent this week, it is quite the opposite for Auburn as Gus Malzahn's squad fell face-first to Georgia last Saturday. In short, Auburn's young quarterback Bo Nix will have to play like he did in the Tigers' opener or his team could slip out of the top 25.Alabama (2) vs Ole Miss
Imminent massacre, you will tell me? Maybe, but no one will want to miss this first SEC clash between coaches Nick Saban and Lane Kiffin since Kiffin was fired from his post as Alabama offensive coordinator a week before the 2017 national championship. Alabama has a lot more talent than Ole Miss, air attack genius Lane Kiffin has more than one trick up his sleeve and he will sure do anything to keep his training up to speed in what is shaping up to be a offensive festival. In other words, it is an uneven battle that could still be the most spectacular game of the weekend.
Miami (7) vs Clemson (1)
Is the legendary Miami team finally back !? That’s what we’ll see on Saturday night… The Hurricanes are enjoying their best start to the season since 2017 with 3 wins in as many games but have yet to have a real test. Their first major challenge promises to be incredibly tough as Miami travels to Death Valley to face the nation’s 1st team, the Clemson Tigers. In short, no one expects a victory for Miami, but this is a barometer game as the Hurricanes' performance against Clemson should give us a better idea of ??their caliber.
In the SEC, the big guys are always there. Alabama (2) fell on a team of Texas A & M (13) catchy, but ended up marking the distance with a quarterback Mac Jones of the great days (435 yards, 4 TD). In the shadow of two superstars DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle, wide receiver John Metchie was a real poison on the deep game, with 5 receptions and 2 touchdowns.
Georgia (4) also recovered well at Auburn's expense (7). Ruthless in defense, the Bulldogs win 27-6, behind a correct Stetson Bennett (240 yards, TD) and an unstoppable Zamir White in the red zone (88 yards, 2 TD). In the same division, it also goes for Florida (3), stronger than South Carolina
