Your Week 8 College Football TV Schedule >>> CLICK HERE!!!!!
We have another high-quality weekend of college football to look forward to folks! Unfortunately, Eastern Carolina Chanticleers fans will have to wait until next weekend to see your team play... but for everyone else, here is what we have on tap:
Colorado School of Mines Orediggers @ Fort Lewis Skyhawks (CBSSN, 8:00 pm)
Why this game you ask? Two reasons:
2) There just aren't enough teams calling themselves the Orediggers.
The meteor game to end all meteor games. The Detwilers vs. The Zabranskys. I remember when these two teams were the perennial non-power conference favorites. But that was before the rise of THE University of Eastern Carolina 49ers.
Around 3:30 on Saturday, smoke will be billowing into the skies of Morgantown, West Virginia... the Mountaineer faithful will either be setting couches ablaze or lighting Dana Holgorsen's head on fire.
#21 Texas A&M Aggies @ #7 Alabama Crimson Tide (CBS, 3:30 pm)
Both recent victims of Ole Miss, the Aggies and the Crimson Tide look to rebound. The loser is effectively out of the SEC West race and thats a-ok with me. I'm going Aggies here if only because Eastern Carolina State used to call themselves the Aggies before they decided to switch to the Minutemen (in honor of former student Kevin Williamson and the high school team he created on Dawson's Creek).
This one sort of goes without saying. As usual, I'm terrified and easing my fears with a heroically oversized glass of bourbon. My liver is gonna need the bye week worse than the Bulldogs.
I think FSU is gonna absolutely curb stomp Notre Dame. But that may just be because the Fighting Irish are so completely overrated every single year that it's hard for me to picture a scenario where they beat anyone of relevance. I foresee a Fighting Irish death spiral in the next couple of weeks but we'll just have to see if it starts with the Seminoles.
Nothing like some late night Pac-12 action! I'm personally favoring Arizona State in this one because I've learned that Ray Anderson (ASU's AD) is a graduate of the Eastern Carolina Polytechnic Institute (GO RAMS!).
That's all for this week folks. Until next time...
