Rivalry week is upon us! Florida vs. Florida State, South Carolina vs. Clemson, Alabama vs. Auburn, and the only one known as “The Game” – Michigan and Ohio State -all take place this weekend. The Wolverines remain the consensus pick for the Big Ten, but the jury is still out on the SEC opponent. Whether the SEC Championship Game runner-up is selected for an at-large BCS berth (likely replacing the National Championship Game-bound winner in the conference’s Sugar Bowl slot) will go a long way in deciding who gets selected for a trip to Central Florida.
One interesting note – both of ESPN’s national writers are picking Texas A&M, but ESPN.com SEC writer Chris Low likes Georgia. We’ll know for sure in a few weeks.
