On the latest (under the weather) episode of The Solid Verbal, Dan Rubenstein and Ty Hildenbrandt address the following questions when previewing what could be a surprisingly robust Week 7:

• Can Kansas State, even with questions surround the health of starting QB Jesse Ertz, do enough on defense to slow down TCU and QB Kenny Hill?

• With injuries to RB Mark Walton (out for the year) and WR Ahmmon Richards (questionable), is Georgia Tech a particularly bad matchup for Miami?

• In a game between USC and Utah, two teams with pretty good defenses who are adept at forcing turnovers, are the Trojans really double digits better than the always dangerous Utes (without starting QB Tyler Huntley)?

• Is there a facet of what Purdue has done thus far that could pose a specific challenge for RB Jonathan Taylor (tailback) and Wisconsin in Madison?

• Given Oregon's recent offensive struggles, are Stanford and their Heisman-esque RB Bryce Love a sure danger?
