Vote: What will happen at USC and Michigan?

 Pat Hill
Does Fresno St. coach Pat Hill have a poor man's version of Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and LenDale White?
You can't throw a stick this weekend without hitting a big game on the college gridiron (not that we'd encourage that sort of thing, especially if you're at the game between South Carolina and Clemson). But for slightly different reasons, two showdowns loom especially large.

It's not a classic rivalry, but Fresno State visits USC in what some consider the Trojans' toughest test of the regular season. Are the Bulldogs, who lost 37-34 at Oregon in September for their sole defeat, the kind of team that will put pressure on USC?

Michigan and Ohio State don't need national-championship implications to make headlines when they meet, but Saturday's game in Ann Arbor does at least have potential BCS implications. Will the winner be headed to a big bowl, and which coach can least afford a big loss?

So what's the verdict, SportsNation? What do you expect from two of Saturday's biggest games?
