College Football Game of the Week – #1 Texas at #7 Texas Tech

Another big one in the Big 12 this weekend as two undefeated teams meet.  The #1 Texas Longhorns head to Lubbock to take on the #7 Texas Tech Red Raiders.

This is the Longhorn’s fourth straight game against a team ranked 11th or better.  In their last three games, they have taken down Oklahoma, Missouri, and Oklahoma State.  This may be their final big test on the way to a National Championship, as the Red Raiders are their last ranked opponent of the season.

The Red Raiders are enjoying their highest ranking in 32 years and their first 8-0 start since 1976.  The road ahead remains tough for them however, as Texas Tech still has to face Oklahoma State and Oklahoma after this run-in with the Longhorns.

Who will reign supreme in Lubbock this Saturday night?  Take our poll and let us know what you think.

Celebrate the Phillies World Series Championship with Philadelphia Phillies Merchandise

For only the second time in team history, the Philadephia Phillies have won the World Series.  Last night, the Phillies closed out the series by defeating the Tampa Bay Rays in five games.

A perfect way to celebrate this historic win for the Phillies and the city of Philadephia is with Philadelphia Phillies merchandise to decorate your home or office.

It’s a great time of year to snuggle under a warm and cozy Philadelphia Phillies throw blanket.  You can also show your team pride by displaying a Phillies banner or Phillies flag indoors or out.  A Philadelphia Phillies wall clock and a Phillies waste basket not only make great additions to your office, but also make great gifts for your favorite Phillies fan.

Congratulations to the 2008 World Series Champions Philadelphia Phillies for an unforgettable season.

Monday Night Football Prediction – Colts vs. Titans

This Monday night brings us the Indianapolis Colts taking on the Tennessee Titans. Who would have guessed eight weeks ago that the Titans would have the undefeated record at this point in the season and the Colts would have 3 losses?

Although Tennessee is the only remaining undefeated team, they know that this week will be a big test for them.  They are ready to earn some respect after experiencing their best start in team history, and they know defeating the defending AFC South champions is a great way to do just that.

Indianapolis is definitely not playing up to their usual standards.  This is their worst start since 2001 when they ended the season at 6-10 and missed the playoffs.  Injuries to Bob Sanders and Joseph Addai have not helped the situation.  To have any chance at all at winning a sixth straight division title, they know this game is a must-win.

We are split down the middle in our predictions again this week.  Spencer (5-3) and David (3-5) think Tennessee will remain undefeated.  Chase (3-5) and I (3-5) are sure that Indianapolis will get it together this week and get a big win.

What’s your call on Monday’s night match-up?  Take our poll and let us know.


We have lots of Indianapolis Colts merchandise, Tennessee Titans merchandise, and other NFL merchandise for the football fan in your family.

College Football Game of the Week – #3 Penn State at #9 Ohio State

This week we’re featuring a game that will likely decide the Big Ten title as #3 Penn State Nittany Lions head to Columbus to take on the #9 Ohio State Buckeyes.

Penn State is looking to break a 10-game road losing streak against ranked opponents and also get a win in Columbus for the first time since 1978.  The Nittany Lions looked great against Michigan last week, beating them 46-17 after having lost nine straight against the Wolverines in previous years.

Ohio State could prove to be hard to beat though.  Against ranked opponents, the Buckeyes have won 12 of their last 13 conference home games.  They had an easy time defeating Michigan State last weekend by a score of 45-7.

Can Penn State remain undefeated and continue their quest for the Big Ten title and possible National Championship?  Or will Ohio State continue their impressive play and get a sixth straight victory since their loss at USC?  Take our poll and let us know what you think.

Monday Night Football Prediction – Broncos vs. Patriots

The Denver Broncos take on the New England Patriots in an AFC match-up this Monday night.  Both teams are trying to avoid consecutive losses.

Although Denver’s quarterback, Jay Cutler, continues to play well, the rest of the offense has cooled somewhat.  They have failed to reach 20 points in their last three games, losing two of those.  But keep in mind that the Broncos have won 16 of the last 19 match-ups against the Patriots. 

With the loss of Tom Brady, New England doesn’t even resemble the 16-0 team from last season.  The offense has scored 20 points or more in only 1 of 5 games this season, and the defense is allowing 5.92 yards per play, which is 27th in the NFL. 

As you can guess from our prediction records so far, there have been a lot of surprises this year in Monday Night Football.  This week we are split down the middle  Chase (3-4) and David (3-4) choose Denver to win.  Spencer (4-3) and I (2-5) think the Patriots will dig deep and find a way to win this game.

What are your thoughts?  Will the Broncos continue their dominance over the Patriots, or was last week’s huge defeat at the hands of the Chargers enough to inspire the Patriots to get back on track and grab a win?  Take our poll and let us know who you think will get the victory.


Keep in mind that Denver Broncos merchandise, New England Patriots merchandise, and other NFL merchandise can make great Christmas gifts.

College Football Game of the Week – #11 Missouri at #1 Texas

This is the third week in a row that we’ve featured a Big 12 match-up in our game of the week, but how can we help it when each of these games carries such weight in the quest for a national championship bid. This Saturday, #11 Missouri Tigers take on the #1 Texas Longhorns in Austin.

Texas had an incredible game last week, knocking then #1 Oklahoma out of the top spot with a decisive 45-35 win.  That was their first big test of the season, and they passed with flying colors.  This week, the Longhorns look to prove that they deserve that #1 ranking.

Missouri is still hoping to win the Big 12 North despite struggling last week in their first loss of the season.  Quarterback Chase Daniels is looking to redeem himself after throwing 3 interceptions in the second half against Oklahoma State.

Can Texas hold on to their number 1 ranking, or will Missouri play the spoilers?  Take our poll and let us know who you think will win Saturday.



As always, you can find great NCAA merchandise, including Missouri Tigers merchandise and Texas Longhorns merchandise, at MySportsDecor.com.
