Fab Freshman Terrelle Pryor

The Sporting News says Pryor is the top thing to watch Saturday.

By Bill Smith

In his article in the Sporting News  10 things to watch this Saturday Matt Hayes writes:

1. The countdown begins

Let's not kid each other. We're all looking to next week, so why fake it? And since Week 2 is about as glamorous as grout, we'll begin this week with the one that matters most next week.

We're days from the game that will shape the race for the national title like no other, and here's how Ohio State and USC will prepare this weekend: The Buckeyes will play Ohio. The Trojans will play the Trojans. Guess who gets more out of that?

While Ohio State will try to stay injury-free for four quarters -- and get fab freshman QB Terrelle Pryor more snaps -- USC will bang heads like it always does: with itself.

I've watched USC practices, I know USC practices. Ohio-Ohio State, everyone, is not a USC practice. Then again, what game this week is?

This much we know about next week's mega-showdown: the winner will be the nation's No.1-ranked team. Complain all you want, 'Dawgs. Doesn't matter. One team will be the early favorite to find a way to Miami in January; the other will scramble to make sense of it all.

A word of caution, everyone: Virginia is horrendous, and one injury (Chris Wells) doesn't tank a team. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

It's nice that some experts don't bow down to the Trojan Horse.
