Only the first two games are really worthy - 'Cuse won't be as good outside the dome and Tennessee is god-awful no matter where they play. Michigan/Penn St would've gotten my vote, but I'm not convinced that Michigan can make a game out of this - this could be a Penn St rout. I think USC (weak defense, penchant to turn the ball over on offense) against Notre Dame (not a great team, but they can run it on weak defenses) will be a much better game to watch.

I had to have some filler. The Top 25 games just haven't been there the last two weeks.

Nothing like blowing an 18-point lead going into the 4th quarter and giving up 28 unanswered. :ohno: :ohno: :ohno:

As much as I dislike both schools, U$C-ND is a classic matchup. I'll take THAT alongside the VERY important #20 UCF @ Navy tilt....

Khaki pants versus Vin Diesel.

USC and ND should be called the overrated bowl.

So Michigan going to OT against Indiana last week and the week before getting beat in the Big House by a Michigan St team that just two weeks earlier was curb-stomped at home by an Irish team that's only loss is a one-point loss to unbeaten Georgia means that Notre Dame is overrated but strangely Michigan is not? Your Irish hate is blinding you. :coffee:

Interesting fact, Mark Whipple is the current coach of UMass. I actually looked him up the other day because I wondered where he had gone after his run with UMass in the late 90's and early 00's only to find out that he's been at UMass again for the past 4 years, and not really sporting a very good record in that time. That's all.

Though it certainly wasn't a game-of-the-week candidate, Temple @ Army was an awesome game. Army drove the length of the field to score an OT-forcing TD on a ~20 yard pass with a second left. Then they settled for a FG in OT and Temple's kicker shanked a chip shot on their drive. Army bowl eligible. Monken's got them fools playing ball again. :clap:

Army bowl eligible and Navy loses a home game today. Like I said, not outside the realm of possibility that Army gets a winning streak going against Navy.

No need for a Week 9 GOTW Thread. Just start a Penn State-Ohio State thread. It’s basically the play-in game for the rights to lose to Bama in the NCG.

Well, it's the play-in game to play unbeaten Wisconsin in the B1G title game (I'm assuming Wisconsin beats Michigan in Camp Randall later in the year). And then it's the chance to lose to 'Bama either in the semis or the finals of the playoff.

So two that are fighting for second place behind this one.
