Week 4 Spotlight

Last Week: Joe Pa's Stadium Cleaning Service continued to roll, taking Week 3 by a score of 196-185, extending their overall lead to 19 points (515-496). Joe Pa overcame Colt Brennan and those pesky Stomach Staples behind the play Tim Tebow, Mike Hart, and Darren McFadden.

This week:

Andre Woodson has been an outstanding dual threat quarterback, leading the Kentucky Wildcats to an upset win against rival #8 Louisville, and has Kentucky at 3-0. Kentucky takes on Arkansas this week, and while they might not be able to come away victorious, the Arkansas defense practically guarentees 40 points for Kentucky. Jake Lockar of Washington will face a tough test against UCLA, but any defense should look easy compared to Ohio State. As the leading passer and almost the leading rusher for the Huskies, Lockar will put up points.

Runningbacks: Darren McFadden is a heisman favorite for a reason. He is downright explosive and leads the Arkansas offense. Playing Kentucky, it should be a high scoring affair and McFadden has a chance to do a lot of damage. Terry Grant will continue to carry the load for Alabama as they look to make it a 4-0 start against the Georgia Bulldogs. Grant is a bruising back that could find the endzone in what should be a grind it out affair.

Wide Receivers: Adarius Bowman has been about the only bright spot for Oklahoma State this season. With the Red Raiders coming to town, Oklahoma State may not be able to get back on track, but the offense should at least play a lot better, going against the Red Raiders defense. South Carolina shouldn't be a difficult test for LSU, but is should be close for a bit. Quarterback Matt Flynn has relied on Early Doucet early in games, and this test should be no different for the LSU passing game. The closer this game stays, the better the day Doucet will have.

Offense: Oklahoma State has been nothing short of awful all season long, and whether it continues against Texas Tech is besides the point. Texas Tech's offense is one of the best in the country and will shread the OSU secondary all game long.

Defense: When Maryland and Wake Forest get together it's going to be a low scoring affair. Maryland didn't show much on offense against an average West Virginia unit, so don't look for them to fair much better against a solid Demon Decons defense.
