The college football schedule week 5 games are quite intriguing in 2010. As the latest rankings have just shown, there are quite a few schools that are still in the chase to win the national title game this year, but some of them will face huge tests this week. There are two games where top 10 teams play against each other, and it will set the stage for which school from the SEC and Pac-10 are going to have the best shot at securing a spot in the 2010 national championship game. Television producers everywhere are enjoying selling commercials this week, as some of these games are very interesting.
The college game of the week is probably going to be the Florida vs. Alabama game, which pits two of the beasts in the SEC against each other. They are both 4-0 in 2010, and won their first big tests of the season last weekend. Alabama just barely got past Arkansas, and now has to take on the No. 7-ranked Florida Gators. Not an easy task at all, and it will be very interesting to see how the team handles this game. Alabama will of course be the favored team, coming off a national championship and putting together a very nice winning streak that is still going. The crowd is going to be rabid in Alabama on Saturday night.
Out west, there is a different game of the week on the minds of college football fans, as the two leaders of the Pac-10 Conference square off. Oregon vs. Stanford is the second game on Saturday that will have top 10 teams playing each other, as in the new college football rankings Oregon is up to No. 4 and Stanford jumped all the way to No. 9 after beating Notre Dame. This is a battle of running games and will serve as a significant test for both teams when it comes to stopping the run. Defense will be key in this game, because while we know both of these teams can rack up the points, it will be the team that gets the biggest stops that will win this game.
Lost amongst these two great games will be a host of other games that should also be extremely competitive on Saturday, beginning with Texas vs. Oklahoma. Though Texas fell out of the top 10, they are not a school that No. 8 Oklahoma can sleep on, and this will be an extremely important game in the conference standings. Oklahoma is hosting, so they have a slight advantage here, but this is one of those rivalry games where it is always tough to pick a winner. Some of the other highly anticipated games on the schedule include Wisconsin vs. Michigan State, Miami vs. Clemson, Penn State vs. Iowa, and Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina State. Get ready for some upsets this week, because they are coming.
