Week seven lived up to expectations. A Saturday of big conference matchups left us with indelible memories like Stanford's latest white tailback absolutely ruining UCLA, Christian Hackenburg finishing a matchup with the country's #1 team with a game-leading 120 passing yards, Iowa moving the date of our apocalypse up a few extra weeks by improving to 7-0, and, of course, this:
I know that pain, brother.
Week eight doesn't look nearly as exciting on paper. There is only one showdown between two top 25 teams, but it's a key SEC West matchup between Texas A&M and Ole Miss. Texas Tech/Oklahoma and Western Kentucky/LSU will also provide some entertaining games, but this isn't the weekend where you should feel badly about missing out on college football games to celebrate something trivial like Homecoming.
Worst Game: Louisiana-Monroe at Idaho. Just *narrowly* edging out Missouri/Vanderbilt in Nashville. Honorable mention goes to 6-0 Houston vs. 0-7 Central Florida, 6-0 Oklahoma State vs. 0-6 Kansas, and 5-2 BYU vs. 0-6 FCS doormat Wagner, all of which will just historical reenactments of the Great Emu War.
Best Game: 1-5 Troy at 0-6 New Mexico State. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
