Week 11 for college football is the most significant to date, with six match-ups featuring two ranked teams, two of those six games are in the Big 12 — a lineup that has the potential to shake up the newly formed selection committee’s next top 25. Fourth Ranked Oregon will be at number 17 Utah, as the Ducks will try to keep their spot in the playoff picture. Number 5 Alabama is at #16 LSU in a huge SEC West rivalry game. The Seventh ranked K-State Wildcats take on the 6th ranked Horned Frogs of TCU in the fight for purple supremacy. A Big 10 match-up between the 14th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes and the number 8 Michigan State Spartans. Number 9 Arizona State takes on the tenth ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish in Sun Devil Stadium and Number 12 Baylor will travel to Norman to battle the Oklahoma Sooners.
Kyle Orton has received nothing but praise since taking over as the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. He hasn’t dramatically increased the offense’s production, nor has that unit taken care of the ball any better since the move was made, but it’s Orton’s veteran leadership that has the Bills buzzing and seeking a fourth victory in five games this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are riding a hot streak of their own, winning three straight after defeating the Jets 24-10 last week. Kansas City has won five of six after getting off to a slow start, and still feels as if they need to earn some respect.
The NASCAR race on Sunday in Pheonix is the final race of the “eliminator round”. The four drivers with the lowest points total will be eliminated leaving the other four drivers to vie for the title in the final race of the season on November 16th at Homestead in Miami. Joey Lagano and Denny Hamlin are tied for first followed by Ryan Newman and Jeff Gordon. On the outside looking in for now are Matt Kenseth in fifth Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick.
