This Week in Football

College Week 9, NFL Week 8

Starting next week I’ll begin posting my top 25 rankings in response to the FBS Committee rankings. Controversy is sure to ensue. Pretty good lineup of games this week in college. Have those remotes ready at 3:30 because no less than five(!) games are airing in that slot. NFL has some decent match ups – more intriguing than anything, I guess. A couple of teams that need to prove themselves in Detroit and Houston have big games while Denver has a potentially make or break game in Kansas City, traditionally one of the hardest places to play in the nation.
