As I said last week, we’re in the middle of the season where some great battles continue to happen on schedule. Last week was simply fantastic, and there were stellar performances across the country and some tight matches. This week, we are treated to much the same thing.
We have five games between the two ranked teams, and all are huge indicators of how this season will end. Alabama tries to get rid of the bad taste of losing to Tennessee by hosting Mississippi State. It is a must win for Tide if they are to keep their hopes of winning the national championship alive. Syracuse goes to Clemson to join a battle between the souls of the ACC. UCLA can show us if they’re real when they get to Oregon. The loser of the Texas-Oklahoma State will have to climb a tough hill to get to the Big 12 title game. Speaking of the Big 12, Kansas State and TCU are the top two teams on the leaderboard and will face off in the Big 12. Ft. Valuable.
What will we have in store for Week 8? Well, these are the players to watch.
