Thursday Night Football....All About the Number 12

Customarily my "Thursday Night Football" entries are about the current NFL match up which is taking place in the week. On this Thursday however, a switch of pace was warranted. No need to get into why RGIII and the Redskins must avoid laying an egg in Minnesota, not only further damaging my fantasy roster and  hindering their chances for their playoff hopes for their teams sake. Lets talk a good brand of football and tonight? it's in the college game.

#5 Baylor hosts #10 Oaklahoma (BIG 12)

With two players on the  Heisman watch list, quarterback Bryce Petty and running back Lache Steastunk Baylor's offense is putting up video game stats averaging 718 yards per game and 63.9 points per game as a unit.The knock on Baylor is that they have yet to be tested because of a perceived weak schedule, we will find out how real they are soon enough. Baylor is 1-21 all time against Oklahoma with their first meeting dating back to 1901. That one win? You guessed it, in 2011 lead by RGIII.

A confident group though are these guys from Baylor

#6 Stanford hosts the #2 Oregon Ducks (Pac 12)

Marcus Mariota is leading the Heisman race this season 2,281 passing yards 20 touchdowns with 0 interceptions and you can't forget about his 9 touchdowns with his legs. Unfortunately for him and his Ducks, recent history has shown in this rivalry with Stanford that undefeated seasons have been spoiled. If your a betting man? Or a fan of Jamies Winston and the Florida St. Seminoles? Your hoping history repeats itself and Stanford pulls the upset.

BCS and Heisman chances are at stake tonight. Enjoy the Games
