Saturday 9:00 TV: ESPN
Preview: Ole Miss just shocked the world, beating the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide. Texas A&M was a victim of “upset week” losing to Mississippi State. Texas A&M will look to redeem themselves while Ole Miss is looking to prove that their big win was no fluke.

5.) No.12 Oregon @ No.13 UCLA
Saturday: 3:30 TV: Fox
Preview: These are both teams many picked to be in the four team playoff before getting upset. Oregon features more speed than anyone in the country and they flaunt in with a frenetic pace. UCLA has a defense with a knack at getting turnovers, as well as a future NFL quarterback in Brent Hundley. NFL scouts will be keying in on this match up of two potential top picks in Marcus Mariota and Brent Hundley.

Top 5 NFL Games

1.) Cowboys @ Seahawks
Sunday 4:25
Preview: The Cowboys have impressed with their running game based offense this season. In fact, DeMarco Murray is on pace to go over 2,000 yards. It will be interesting to see if the Cowboys can run the ball facing the Seahawks vaunted defense and rowdy the 12th man.

2.) Packers @ Dolphins
Preview: The Dolphins and the Packers should make for quite the shoot out. The game could be decided by who rushes the passer most effectively. For the Pack, Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers are hard to slow down. Cameron Wake is a beast in his own right for theDolphins.

3.) Ravens @ Buccaneers
Preview: The Ravens look to get back on track against the 1-4 Buccaneers. The Ravens are clearly the better team but they have struggled on the road. Opponents average 159 yards per game against Tampa Bay; expect a heavy dose of run from the Ravens.

4.) Steelers @ Browns
Preview: The last game between these teams was in the season opener and it came down to the end. The Browns are better than they have been in a long time, and they want to show that to Pittsburgh more than anyone.

5.) Chicago @ Atlanta
Preview: Neither team is wildly impressive defensively and both teams have good offenses. This could be a blowout. The amount of receiving talent in this game is mind boggling.
