Game of the Day -- #5 Michigan State v. #18 Iowa

While the Missouri/Nebraska game might feaure higher ranked teams (on average), that game only determines the winner of the Big 12 North. This game could determine the winner of the Big 10 and the automatic BCS bid if Michigan State can pull of the win in Iowa. Because it's unlikely Minnesota, Purdue or Penn State will be much of a challenge for Sparty.

That being said, I'm taking the Hawkeyes at home in this one. I'm just not convinced Michigan State is the 5th best team in the country. And an 8-point win at Northwestern last week doesn't instill much confidence.

 A coupon for a free tub of Cottonelle Fresh Flushable Moist Wipes: I believe this offer has ended, but you can still complete this form to get $1.00 off Cottonelle Fresh Flushable Moist Wipes.

Free sample of Escada Absolutely Me: This smells sweet, like most of Escada fragrances. Try it for free, too! Just fill in your details here.

My laptop case from eBay:  I wanted one with animal prints so bad... and I found one! It's great, I love it. And I got it for only $11.55! I bought it here.

 Samples from Shiseido: A while back ago, Shiseido offered to fill an online survey to send products samples suited to our skin type. I have no idea why I received samples from the Pureness Oil-Control 1-2-3 Skincare range as my skin is dry, but those are one application samples, so I'll try them anyway.

  • Pureness Balancing Softener Alcohol-Free
  • Pureness Matifying Moisturizer Oil-Free
  • Facial cotton (4 sheets)
November 2010 issue of ELLE Canada: I got an offer to subscribe to this magazine for only $1 an issue, so I decided to give it a try (=

My prize from Shade's giveaway: The prize was a jewelry piece of my choice from $35 and under from Fantasy Jewelry Box. Now a lot of trouble happened (I waited around 2 weeks after placing my order to finally be told that they thought the package got lost, but then they realized the item I wanted was discontinued), so they told me they were sorry and gave me a credit of $60 instead. When I picked two items and ordered them (for a total of $59.90), they thought I was reviewing a piece of jewelry - in which case the limit is $50, so they told me to call the customer service. I wrote back to them saying I only won a giveaway, and that I had spoken with a different lady before and blahblahblah. After all that trouble, I finally received a package from them... only to find that one item I ordered was missing! I ordered Ashlee's Silver Studded Black Metal Bangle for me and Champagne & Clear CZ Princess Cut Gold Tennis Bracelet for my mother but I only received the last one! I contacted them regarding that but I always receive their answer 1 week later... I'm thinking that they are being very unprofessional. I will definitely not order from them again! But thank you Shade for this giveaway!

Thursday Night Football Cheerleader Preview -- #16 Florida State v. North Carolina State

I'll be honest, I had no idea Florida State was still ranked. Let alone just outside of the Top 15. They've won exactly 1 game that means anything (taking The U behind the woodshed 2 weeks ago) and got trounced in their only other real test. Guess that makes you a Top 15 team these days. As long as your program has won in the past, of course. Too bad NC State doesn't have a better history or their mediocre record would certainly have them in the Top 25.

Oh who really cares? Let's just look at some cheerleaders.

Navarro College Cheerleaders

So we're going tiny today. Navarro College is a small 2-year school with about 9,000 students. The coolest thing on campus is Texas' largest planetarium. I mean, I guess that's cool. Regardless, I found some pictures of their cheerleaders and thought I would share them on this hump day.

Air Force Cheerleader Perri

I told you on Friday to expect a special Air Force post, and I am here to deliver. I really wish I had more pics of my favorite Air Force cheerleaders that I've previously swooned over here and here, but I don't have any new pics of her.

What I do have is the super cute Perri. And Miss Perri is damn cute, even if she is a Red Sox fan.
