This Week in Football

College Week 8, NFL Week 7

Since Allen Bored “retired” from the site this year, I figured I’d try my hand at ranking the scheduled gridiron match ups for each week. Here’s how it will work:

For my own sanity, only the top 10 College games will be listed. Both a ranked list and an “airtime” list will be provided for college, with both including channels and airtime.

All NFL games will be ranked. “Headline” match ups will be highlighted. I will also add a link to 506 Sports, which provides coverage maps for the nation.

You want analysis? Well, uh, look elsewhere. This is intended to be a quick and dirty guide on what to watch while you are slowly killing your brain with beer this weekend.
