SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

#2 LSU at Auburn

LSU is playing the expectations and perception game with Alabama, so there's this 52-0 benchmark. A) LSU won't hit that. B) It won't matter, as of right now it looks like a one-game season.

#20 Arizona at #3 Oregon

The Pac-12 looks like it has really strong middle class early this season, but here's their first test on how they matchup with the elite teams in the nation. Honestly, a close game is better overall for the image of the Pac-12, so it's seen as more than just Oregon, 10 pretty good teams, and Colorado.

#10 Clemson at #5 FSU

It is hard to understate precisely how big this game is for the ACC. The winner of this game is a national title contender. The loser is making plans to go to whatever they call the Gator Bowl now.

#14 Kansas St at #6 Oklahoma

I've been unimpressed with the Sooners, but really, it was one game in El Paso. Preseason is over, and now they have a home date over the one team in the Big 12 you can never overlook. KSU has played one good game, but it was a really good game. A win here, and they insert themselves in the national title discussion. Another huge game.

Mizzou at #9 South Carolina

Mizzou is not talking nearly as much smack before this game, which is probably a good idea. This game should give us some clarity on the SEC East race, and how good is USC exactly. That Vanderbilt stinker still looms.

#21 Michigan at #11 Notre Dame

1988 says hi. Pop in a Scorpions cassette and enjoy.

Virginia at #17 TCU

Man, TCU's schedule is terrible. This qualifies as a tough out of conference game for them this year. TCU is the Mississippi St of the Big 12 this year.

Oregon St. at #18 UCLA

This could be the beginning of every Pac-12 team going 7-5. Someone needs to assert themselves as the challenger to Oregon, and both of these teams are decent candidates. But it has to start with a win here.
