College Football Top 25 Match-ups: I Got the Need, the Need to Win!

October 13, 2012

College Football, Features

Again we will get to see several top 25 teams face off against each other. It doesn’t appear to be as good as the match ups last weekend but you should still expect to see some good games.

#15 Texas vs #13 Oklahoma 12:00PM ET (neutral site)

#17 Stanford at #7 Notre Dame 3:30PM ET

#3 South Carolina at #9 LSU 8:00PM ET

#22 Texas A&M at #23 Louisiana Tech 9:00PM ET

So what teams NEED to win? Who would it hurt the most to walk off the field with a loss? The two teams that I highlight are South Carolina and Notre Dame.

South Carolina is making it’s best argument at being a National Champion contender and people have been impressed but if they lose to LSU this weekend it could be a fatal blow to their title hopes. They have had great momentum this season and their best win was last week against Georgia. They could lose to LSU and still be ok but the game would have to be kept close, very close.

Notre Dame is also under the microscope because this appears to be the season that they bring their program back into the national spotlight. Out of all these teams I feel that Notre Dame needs to keep their winning streak going the most. Having such disappointing seasons for so many years their program needs a strong performance to get back to their level of prestige.

I will make mention of a team that is not playing another Top 25 team but Florida State really needs to win the rest of their games. Not having a very difficult schedule in the ACC they need to take down the rest of their competition to stay at a prestigious level before the season ends otherwise one more loss could drop them even further in the rankings.

With these being such big games for South Carolina and Notre Dame I expect these to be two of the best if not the two best games of the weekend. Texas vs Oklahoma will be another game that should be good to watch. Keep your Saturday open everyone so that you don’t miss the entertainment.
