College Football Week 8 Schedule: Michigan-Penn State and USC-Notre Dame headline

New, comments

The Big Ten takes center stage with one prominent game tonight while a long-running, non-conference rivalry will be one to watch.

Finally, we have some games that look good on paper!

Although last week’s college football schedule looked like a boring weekend, it turned out to be anything but. It was the wackiest week of the year (so far at least), as a whopping FOUR top-ten teams lost to unranked opponents.

Clemson and Washington State both fell on Friday night a week ago, but then Washington and Auburn both went down on Saturday.

This week, we actually have a few games that we think should be interesting going in, with two games this evening featuring ranked teams on both sidelines. Get your remotes ready to flip back and forth between ABC and NBC, as Michigan-Penn State and USC-Notre Dame should make for good viewing tonight.

Enjoy!
