This week we have Barrett Sallee on the show to hit up the Slate of Eight and as always we've got a great show for you folks to enjoy. Barrett from Scout.com's College Football News is one of the best in the business and the proud new papa lends us his time to hit this week's best action on the gridiron. Before we get into the slate we also take a little time to talk about the precarious position that Ohio State finds itself in, again, and to congratulate the new dad.
This week's slate:
Florida State-Wake Forest
We don't just talk Ohio State off the field issues we also get into their woeful offensive attack as they take on a Nebraska team that is hoping to get back in their lane after being abused by Wisconsin. Mizzou is the next team to find out if Kansas State is a pretender while in a game we didn't see coming Wake Forest is tied for the ACC Atlantic lead and Florida State needs a victory in Winston to get some mojo back. The Dawgs and the Vols in their annual meeting with the Dawgs appearing to finally hit stride.
Auburn and Arkansas meet in a game that both Barrett and I feel is getting a little too much hype. Yes Auburn looked good against a shake Sakerlina team but Arkansas is an offensive beast the like of which the War Eagle Family has yet to see this season. Michigan, in their first road game against a maybe, probably, could be "Persa Strong" Northwestern squad.
Our final two games are going to be interesting as they somewhat mirror each other. Both have national championship contenders coming into games against a team that is looking to return to glory following massive coaching staff overalls. In Florida-LSU we've got an entirely new staff in Gainesville traveling to the Bayou Bengals for the second of two games against Top Three teams. Jeff Driskel is going to see a totally different approach to defense and we'll be watching the Honey Badger Tyrann Mathieu terrorize the Gators. We've also got the two quarterback system of the Texas Longhorns on the docket as their rebuilt defense tries to stop Landry Jones, Kenny Stills, Ryan Broyles and the rest of this precision passing attack for OU.
