Keys To The Game: Obviously the reality is LSU is as advertised. Those guys are the real deal and when I take a look at them they're No. 1 in the SEC in almost every category and among the leaders nationally in many. Those guys are just killer bees. This is going to be a tough game for South Carolina, but LSU has some holes. They're eighth in the SEC in sacks allowed which gives the Gamecocks an opportunity to get at QB Matt Flynn. That might be their only shot at pulling the upset because Flynn has a sprained ankle and won't have Early Doucet.
X-Factor: Blake Mitchell. Right now he has to put the ball in the right places against this LSU defense. There's not too much margin for error. Special teams is going to play into this one. LSU is one of the worst teams defending the kickoff in the SEC, so field position is going to be huge.
Prediction: LSU, 35-21.
Keys To The Game:
Prediction: I've got this one being a close game, but it's 28-24 in
Keys To The Game: I think
X-Factor: Casey Dick. They haven't done well throwing the ball this season and this is a big opportunity for him to the pressure of the offensive line because the Wildcats are going to stack the line. He needs to throw the ball down field and help
Prediction: The home team
Keys To The Game: Penn State is for real. Their defense is the No. 1 rushing defense in the nation, but what people don't give them credit for is that they're tied for the most sacks. To me, that's a very telling statistic. That means they're doing it on both ends. This team is one of the dark horses in the country. They're not getting their love. The No. 10 ranking is not high enough. This kind of game is going to showcase
X-Factor: Anthony Morelli -- how good is he going to be? That'll determine whether this is a 50-10 game or a 21-7 game.
