In the midst of the Penn State Child Abuse Scandal and all the filth that has risen up in Happy Valley we do get a break here to talk some football. Nubyjas Wilborn, a digital reporter for Fox Sports South, joins us on the podcast to chop it up about some, you know actual football. That's right as we do every week we've got your Slate of Eight here to take a look at the week's biggest and most influential ball games. We go east, west, north and south with this weekends games as every BCS conference plus the MWC have got something to chat about.
Here's this week's slate:
Virginia Tech-Georgia Tech
Oklahoma State-Texas Tech
We hit the ACC with Virginia Tech trying to keep their win streak going against a Georgia Tech team that already has one top ten upset under their belt. Boise State hosting TCU and personally I think the Horned Frogs have got a chance. West Virginia going to Cincinnati will help paint the odd picture of the Big East. In Auburn and Georgia we get the 115th renewal of "The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry." For Miami heading up to Tallahassee we get to see if the Seminoles' successes of late are them improving or the competition they've played.
In Oklahoma State the "do nothing defense" gets another potent Big XII offense to give up 30+ points to as Brandon Weeden and the offense score a TD or so more. Nebraska and Penn State will be absolutely a study in the willpower of these boys going through the scandal as unwilling participants to the circus. Oregon heads to The Farm and we'll see how legit this Stanford defense really is when the potent Ducks' attack hits town.
