Week 12. For some, it is title week. For others, you are one step closer to making those finals and are looking for the advantage you need to make that last step. There are matchups to exploit, and there are matchups to avoid. There is no time to wait or be hesitant. It is time to go for it.
With that in mind, here is your Two Week's Notice.
Grab your Gamecocks!
This line is not intended to be perverse just a reminder that South Carolina has a juicy matchup in Week 12 with the power known as The Citadel. Yes Citadel. While Brandon Wilds has struggled a bit against SEC competition, he is a solid start, as well as Alshon Jeffery, who has been a bust in 2010. And obviously the defense is a solid play and should create plenty of turnovers and sacks in this one.
Another Cupcake for an SEC team
While South Carolina will beat down the Citadel, Florida takes on Furman in what should be a disaster. Jeff Demps is a solid play even if he just plays for a half, as he should easily hit 100 yards and find the end zone. John Brantley is a decent QB2 in this format, as well as Jordan Reed as your TE, as he will be a matchup nightmare for Furman. And just like South Carolina's D, the Gators are a slam dunk play.
Well if South Carolina and Florida can do it…
Why not Alabama? Alabama takes on the power known as Georgia Southern. Owners better hope for instant impact from Trent Richardson, as he is doubtful to see the field in the 2nd half. Eddie Lacy may be the better full-game play, as he should bulldoze his way to big numbers. Obviously the defense is a must start, while Marquis Maze may find a way to the end zone if given the chance.
Trust your Cowboys?
Nope, not your Oklahoma State Cowboys, we mean the Wyoming Cowboys, who have a date with winless New Mexico. Brett Smith has had a very good season, throwing for close to 2,000 yards with 19 total scores and should have a field day against the Lobos. Chris McNeill has been his leading target and should provide a huge day, while Alvester Alexander may be in line for an easy 100-yard, two-TD day as well.
Battle of the best rushing QB’s?
Taylor Martinez vs. Denard Robinson in the first Big 10 meeting of Nebraska and Michigan. Both guys are must starts, while Rex Burkhead certainly fits the bill as well. There may not be one solid spiral thrown all day, but the rushing yardage should approach 400 on the day.
Other Matchups to Exploit

Clint Moseley, Michael Dyer, Onterio McCalebb, Emory Blake, Auburn vs. Samford
