    People out here in Washington State are very PO’d at Coug’s and Husky’s… I do not follow college FB, but some pretty good reads in the Washington newspapers…

    USC was the team of the week on both sides of the ball. Tulsa just continues to dominate offensively. If you really like a shootout of a game to pick both offenses in, look no further than when Tulsa plays Houston coming up in November. They both have two of the top five scoring offenses in the nation which could make it the highest scoring game of the year.
