College Football Schedule: Week 8 looks like a downer after exciting finishes last Saturday

It's a less-than-stellar schedule in week 8 around college football, as we get only one game matching up ranked teams.

Last week's college football schedule was magnificent. Ranked games abounded, and we got an all-time great finish at the end of a heated rivalry game between Michigan State and Michigan. A top-ten matchup between Florida and LSU was decided by a fake field goal touchdown to add to the fun.

This week? Compared to that craziness and excitement, it looks like it's setting up for a boring week.

We've got just one game matching up ranked teams this week - the Texas A&M-Ole Miss contest. But of course, that doesn't mean we won't be watching plenty of football today anyway.
