Who to root for this weekend?

Now with the BCS standings coming out this Sunday it is a good time for MWC fans or more specifically now that who the fans of Utah would like to win or lose. Now I will only go over matchups that have a chance for a team to lose, so for example this week USC plays Washington State which is a 99% win for USC so there is no point in posting below that Ute fans or now TCU fans want USC to lose.

First game is Georgia @ Vandy

No. 10 Georgia (5-1) vs No. 22 Vanderbilt (5-1)
Athens, GA
12:30 PM ET ESPN360.com
After suffering its first loss of the season last week, Vanderbilt looks to spark the offense with Mackenzi Adams taking over at QB. It won't be easy for Adams and the Commodores in facing Georgia. The Bulldogs bounced back from their loss to Alabama by downing Tennessee last week.

This game is a stretch because it is at Georgia but it is two ranked teams facing off, and if Vanderbilt can pull of this upset Georgia would fall below Utah, pending a win, and Vanderbilt would move them up but not enough to pass Utah.

No. 1 Texas (6-0) vs No. 11 Missouri (5-1)
Austin, TX
8:00 PM ET
Another week, another Big 12 showdown for Texas. After defeating No. 1 Oklahoma last week, the Longhorns host Missouri. Horns QB Colt McCoy was rock-solid in beating the Sooners, while Mizzou QB Chase Daniel struggled to his worst game of the season versus Oklahoma State. The Longhorns have won the past four meetings by an average of 23.0 points.

Texas is who the league would want to win because a Missouri win would keep both teams ahead of Utah.

No. 12 Ohio State (6-1) at No. 20 Michigan State (6-1)
East Lansing, MI
3:30 PM ET
It's an unexpected battle atop the Big Ten standings when Ohio State visits Michigan State. The Buckeyes have won four in a row since falling to USC. The Spartans are trying to win seven straight for the first time in 30 years.

This is a tough game to decide, but the Spartans have a good chance to win at home and drop OSU below the Utes and maybe even TCU.
