BOTR Game of the Week, 2012 Week 5

Week 5 brings some awesome matchups to the table. Half of the Big Ten finds themselves in Band on the Road matchups, all three between a pair of Sudler Trophy winners. Indiana's Marching Hundred travels to Northwestern, Penn State's Blue Band makes the trek out to Illinois, and Ohio State heads up to Michigan State. The latter is a matchup between ranked teams and is this week's College GameDay destination, making it nearly a no-brainer for the Game of the Week.

But I'm heavily biased, and I show it.

Also today, the Florida State Seminoles head south to Tampa to take on my USF Bulls, and the Marching Chiefs are coming with them. The last time the two met, the FootBulls marched victorious in Tallahassee, though indications are the Chiefs' Big 8 drumline put in work on the HOTDL. This year a top 5 Florida State team will seek revenge against a sputtering USF squad. In the stands, both bands will likely be similarly relentless with their signature stands tunes.
