-- trio of games anyone of which could easily be called the game of the week. I have thought about it opening kick off in three part doesn't love the -- that Indians game between top fifteen teams in the F. The west Alabama hosts Arkansas the most intriguing match up the Razorbacks eleventh ranked offense. Vs the tight third ranked defense. Bob is Donald. A great job there each and every year they have made. You know improvement. They're really good offensive team -- very productive their defense is improved each and every year and this year I think in all phases they may be. The best team that. -- -- That's how to do you like in the latest version of irresistible force vs the movable object. I like Alabama's defense unlike Josh Chapman did nose guard OK I love Donta hightower is a middle linebacker and Mark Barron has a strong free safety. Strong up the middle as Alabama's defense they will have some trouble though. Tyler Wilson -- the -- Quarterback and -- Adams knows that to get loose in the secondary but all in all I like Alabama that that can. When on the other side of the ball for Alabama their quarterbacks haven't been that great but doesn't even matter considering that backfield. -- would that backfield it takes the pressure off of the quarterback doesn't it. It will matter if they can ever shut down the run game but so far Trent Richardson Eddie lacy those guys have now been shut down that makes -- a lot. Easier for AJ McCarron and Phillips and that -- It'll be a battle in the SEC west next up a huge game in the big twelve as a parent undefeated teams meet for the first top ten showdown in College Station. Since 1975. Oklahoma State is coming off of them are lightning delayed game last weekend. I didn't start until after midnight local time. We got a big week ahead of us played a good football team on the road. Is very deserving of top ten ranking what have a great preparation but -- 230 game the third team. 2:30 PM and try and. Well Oklahoma State won ten of their last eleven road games what's it gonna take to win a College Station. Well number one it did all the usual cliches apply taking care of the football but the biggest one. Handling the emotion of the day when you go to Texas and -- and you're doing with the twelfth man and you're doing with the yell leaders -- -- -- with the emotion that comes with playing an -- -- That's the big one for Oklahoma State. And if you're the -- how do you slowdown at receiver Justin Blackmon -- the number one way you slow down as the slow down the running game vocal. Stay because right now they're running the football quite well if they're running. Yeah well that is hoping things don't work for just the black He did with the running game can get -- -- all the -- if you -- you probably get the game better. In game of the week part three LSU at West Virginia that they're ranked Tigers for the highest ranked team to visit Morgantown since 2005 and once again. That -- is great offense vs great defense. About your quarterback Gino meant that the numbers that happened in the country and now -- use sport the number six -- Now Charles this is LSU is it consecutive road game against ranked opponents wind again and for them. I don't think it ends this week jail I think that LSU goes to Morgantown against the victory that defense just so strong they do have Tennessee on the road that you got Alabama on. Road that's likely what it's going to catch up to that if it does and it fashionable miss on the road but I don't think happens this weekend against West Virginia. The Tigers have been using their defense to get by -- what kind of problems does quarterback geno Smith get -- He gives them all kinds of problems GOP is it to -- -- football player this guy in the pocket and out of the pocket takes place. Minutes ago that West Virginia doesn't run very well only 79 yards per game. That means it LSU's defense can just tee off and go geno Smith and as active as they are in the secondary led by -- -- -- you and Morris Claiborne. I think it LSU has that well in hand. Well how big of a game is this what you know the kids in Morgantown. Like to burn couches after big went well this weekend -- local fire marshals have preemptively. Banned all outdoor furniture.
