Predictions: Richardson runs over Tennessee, Lane Kiffin on hot seat & Arkansas-Ole Miss upset potential

Watch as Melanie Collins and Sean Salisbury discussion potential BCS upsets, the Heisman Trophy, Alabama's Trent Richardson, Lane Kiffin and Houston Nutt’s future, Georgia Tech and Penn State.

Melanie Collins and Sean Salisbury of Total College Sports examine potential upsets, Heisman candidates, and coaches on the hotseat (Southern Cal’s Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss’ Houston Nutt).

First, Sean Salisbury thinks Arkansas should expect a challenge from Ole Miss. Salisbury believes Houston Nutt will have his team ready to play.

Heisman Trophy predictions include Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson falling out of major contention for the Trophy despite his excellent athletic ability. Salisbury believes too few people across the country appreciate Wilson’s talent. Melanie Collins predicted that Alabama football player Trent Richardson would post strong numbers on national television as Alabama plays Tennessee in the traditional rivalry game.

“I think Trent Richardson is going to run all over Tennessee,” Collins said. “He is going to catapult himself into the frontrunner position.”

As for coaches on the hotseat, of course Houston Nutt at Ole Miss is discussed, but USC’s Lane Kiffin makes the list too. Salisbury who played at USC said the Notre Dame game is critical for Kiffin. “If Kiffin loses the Notre Dame game then his job is not only in danger now, but major danger,” Salisbury said.

Georgia Tech should beat Miami and rebound from last week, according to Salisbury.

Salisbury thinks Penn State’s “record is a fraud.” This year and the Nittany Lions should expect a real challenge from Northwestern.

    I agree with everything except Penn St. No Penn St does not have any offense. But anyone who thinks they don’t have a defense is a true dumbazz. Even though it was AJ’s first full game, still PSU held us to our lowest point total of the year, and the yardage was under 400 too. I think we’ll score more than 27 on LSWho. DEFENSE wins championships. Penn St won’t be winning a championship of any kind this year, but everybody will know they have played them. RTR!
