Separation Saturday in the Simulation Football League

The contenders will begin to separate themselves from the pack this week as several intradivisional games are featured.

In a matchup that could eliminate the loser, the 2009 Boise State team goes against the 2010 Boise State team.  It's one that oddsmakers have been hard pressed to tab a winner.  The '09 Broncos were unbeaten but many feel that the 2010 team was better. 

In another game with gigantic implications, the 2004 and 2006 Boise State teams meet.  Both went undefeated in the regular season and this should be a barnburner.  Many feel the 2002 and 2003 Boise State teams were among the best in school history--they play this weekend.  Meanwhile, the 2001 and 2007 Broncos are just trying to get into the win column after disappointing defeats.  The 2005 Boise State team has its backs against the wall and desperately needs a win over the 2008 team if they have any chance to make the postseason.

In the Championship division, the matchup between the unbeaten 2004 USC team and the 2006 Florida Gators highlights five interdivisional games.  Another one to watch is the rivalry between the 2001 Miami Hurricanes and the 2008 Florida Gators.  The 2005 Texas team needs a win after falling last week--they'll take on the 2007 LSU Tigers.  The 2009 Alabama team has been coming on the last two weeks and will meet winless Auburn.  The 2002 Ohio State team takes on the 2003 National Champions from LSU in the other game.

To the victors go the spoils!
