After last week, I feel as if I can die a happy man. J.T. Barrett put on an ABSOLUTE CLINIC last week against Penn St. I am on cloud nine after the Buckeyes finally get a marquee win in Columbus. So before I make this preview about Ohio State, lets talk about this weeks games.
Games of the Week:
#7 Penn State at #24 Michigan State:
Both teams are coming off of losses. Sparty will be playing a pissed Penn St team that will be out for blood. As of right now, the Nittany Lions are out of the playoff picture. Another loss will kill those dreams. Michigan State is coming off of a loss to Northwestern (who is now second behind Wisconsin in the West) is trying to get a glimmer of a bowl game. They’ll get into one, but they face a tough challenge this week and who knows how good their bowl will be. Penn State rolls to a W.
#4 Clemson at #20 North Carolina State:
There’s only one loss that is going to come back to haunt the NC State team (assuming they win this and win out the rest of the season. Clemson is in the playoff… for right now, going to Raleigh is always a tough place to play. Clemson comes in trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. I think they lose on a last-second field goal and are eliminated from playoff contention.
#5 Oklahoma at #11 Oklahoma State:
This is by far the biggest game of the week, Bedlam will be ROCKING and as a neutral fan (not really, I hope Mayfield ends up getting rocked all night) this is one of the most exciting game of the season. Rudolph and the Cowboys are smoking, and I am hoping hard that the Sooners get blown out. Boomer Sooner? Nah, go ‘Boys.
Story Line of the Week:
Hear me out, I know this happened earlier in the week, and this has absolutely nothing to do with any of the actual games this week. Still, the interview between Mike Leach and this reporter cannot go unnoticed. If you haven’t seen it for yourself, here it is.

Coach has become a national treasure for anyone that speaks their mind as much as he does, and the people here at Student U love anything that has to do with Wazzu or Leach for that matter. As Mike has become the Coach of Student Union Sports, he also becomes the coach this country needs.
