Week Eight Games of Interest

Welcome to ESPN College Gameday...live from...Lawrence, Kansas!  That’s right, the only even remotely interesting matchup of ranked teams this weeks comes when #11 Kansas State (5-0) takes on #19 Kansas (6-0).  Respect is slow in coming for KU, but they’ve proven themselves relatively well with road wins over Hawaii (now 3-2) and Florida State (2-3).

#4 MISSOURI > Nebraska (41-6!)
#1 LSU > Kentucky (home field accounts for 7 points, so...this game doesn’t go to OT)
Stanford > #2 USC
#3 WISCONSIN > Northwestern
#5 OREGON > California (Cal is in a tailspin, and Oregon pulls it out)
#6 FLORIDA > UL-Lafayette
#7 Georgia > VANDERBILT
#8 Penn State > SYRACUSE
EAST CAROLINA > #9 South Carolina (SC is not nearly good enough to have gotten this high)
#10 Auburn > #21 GEORGIA TECH
#19 KANSAS > #11 Kansas State
#12 TEXAS TECH > Rice
#13 OKLAHOMA > Miami-FL
#14 West Virginia > #17 BOSTON COLLEGE
#15 OHIO STATE > #16 Purdue
#22 ARKANSAS > #18 Texas (for some reason, I think the Hogs would have taken it at home)
#20 byu > NEW MEXICO
ALABAMA > #23 Tennessee
#25 ARIZONA STATE > Utah State
IOWA STATE > Colorado
