College Football 2012 — Week Nine Preview

#13 Mississippi State (7-0) at #1 Alabama (7-0)

[Saturday at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN]

After steamrolling through its first seven opponents, the Crimson Tide now gets to the meat of its schedule with a three-game stretch vs. #13 Mississippi State, at #6 LSU and vs. #22 Texas A&M. Thus far, Alabama hasn’t really been challenged, outscoring its opponents by almost 33 points per game. The Tide defense has been as good as we’ve seen in years, ranking first in almost all defensive categories. But while the defense understandably gets the publicity, the Alabama offense has been no slouch either, scoring 40+ in five of seven games this year. Quarterback A.J. McCarron leads the nation in pass efficiency and the offense ranks 14th nationally in scoring.

NFL 2012 Season — Week Seven Preview

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers — 8:20 P.M.

Candlestick Park, San Francisco
Despite having the NFC's second-worst offense, Seattle (4-2) has found a way to win close games behind rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. Seahawks' running back Marshawn Lynch, the NFC's top rusher, will need to gain ground against a 49ers' defense that allows 275.8 yards per game, the fewest in the league. Quarterback Alex Smith had a dreadful game for San Francisco (4-2) in last week's loss to the Giants. The Seahawks, who have the league's fourth-ranked defense, will look to cause more trouble for Smith via the pass rush, especially with left tackle Joe Staley likely out with a concussion.
