The ESPN Game Day gang head to Columbia, SC for a pivotal SEC-East matchup between the #5 Georgia Bulldogs and #6 South Carolina Gamecocks. The visiting Bulldogs come off a wild shootout win against the Tennessee Volunteers. Their high powered offense, led by a pair of freshman running backs, has scored more than 40 points for a 5th straight game. The Gamecocks come into the game undefeated with big wins over Missouri and Kentucky in successive weeks. This matchup of Top 10 heavyweights should yield an exciting and crucial outcome, with major BCS implications. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $231, however TicketCity currently offers tickets starting at $159.
In Big 12 action, the #8 West Virginia Mountaineers travel to Austin to take on the #11 Texas Longhorns. The two schools have not met since 1956, when West Virginia defeated Texas 7-6. The matchup pits one of the most explosive offenses in the country against a talented and experienced Texas defense. The electricity in Austin will be unprecedented, as Big 12 powers clash for national and conference bragging rights. TicketCity currently offers tickets starting at $99.
The undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes welcome the #21 Nebraska Cornhuskers to the Horseshoe, hoping to avenge last year’s disappointing loss at the hands of the Huskers in Lincoln.

This year, the Buckeyes aim for a different outcome in familiar territory. This marquee struggle should certainly be entertaining and should not be missed.
