This week we're bringing you the Slate of Eight because, contrary to popular belief, there are more football games to be played this weekend than just the LSU and Alabama tilt. Plenty of good teams suit up this week and while the game in Tuscaloosa is the main course there are ample appetizers from all over the nation. We've got fellow Crystal Ball Run writer Kevin McGuire, also from No Two Minute Warning, on the podcast this week to get into all of the action.
Here's this weekend's slate:
Florida State-Boston College
Kansas State-Oklahoma State
Florida State looks to stay on track following their early season three game skid. With Clemson going down there is a glimmer of hope for the Seminoles. Texas Tech looks to rebound against Texas in a game where the Red Raiders are trying to get their offense going after falling flat against Iowa State. Oklahoma looks to continue their climb back towards the top while we wonder what exactly is the deal with South Florida and if Rutgers can stay in the Big East hunt.
In Fayetteville we've got the most underrated game on the Slate this week as two Top 10 BCS teams square off in a game that still has legitimate SEC Championship and BCS Bid relevancy. We get another look at Oregon's defense against a Washington team that should have some opportunities for success. Kansas State, we knew they were not exactly "contenders" but now we see them come up against the focused Cowboys of Oklahoma State and we don't see the Wildcats beating the Pokes.
Oh and yeah we talk Bama and LSU. A lot. Get excited as we get into the special teams, which offense is better prepared to attack these great defenses, how ready AJ McCarron is and more.
