This Week in College Football: Week 8

Introducing the new “This Week in College Football”. With the proliferation of conferences desperate for ESPN’s money and exposure, we now have college ball on practically every day of the week. So each week, I’ll write up a short post about this week’s weekday games in the same vein as my weekend column.

As usual, all times Eastern and all predictions wrong.

8:00: Tulsa @ Texas-El Paso (ESPN): This game has already started, but I mean, Tulsa should win. Of course, as I type this UTEP just scored to go up 13-0.

7:30: Florida State @ North Carolina (ESPN): These are definitely two ACC teams who though they’d be having better years than they actually are. Both have zero wins in conference play and need a turnaround quickly. That said, UNC is having major troubles putting points up on any reasonably competent defense, whereas FSU isn’t really having any problems scoring. Even if the season is lost for them, I have an easier time predicting FSU to win here.

8:00: Rutgers @ Army (ESPN2): I wish Army could get to 6 wins this year, but they blew it last week against Temple. Rutgers is much more competent and should have no issues.
