    As a UH fan, rooting for Louisville and Oklahoma to pull the upsets. Not only will it improve their strength of schedule, it will most likely vault the Cougars into the top 5

    As a UH fan I'll be pulling for Louisville and Oklahoma too. My preseason pick for the national championship was Louisville and I still feel that way. If I was in Vegas I would definitely put some real money on it. Louisville's QB is one of the best college quarterbacks I have ever seen.

    As a Sam Houston fan I'll be pulling for UH since our schools are named after the after the same guy.

    Texas should be able to put a lot of points on the Cal D, Aggies vs Auburn is interesting due to tremendous D lines for both teams.

    Great Thursday matchup featuring UH.

    Solid TV slate on Saturday.

    Very weird Rice gets a national TV home game on ESPN Friday. Has that ever happened before?

    Based on watching part of Cal at San Diego State, UT should put up 50-60 points without trying.

    I hope Louisville doesn't get blown out by FSU. They have very little chance of winning IMO.

    I'll be rooting for
    - Houston
    - Texas
    - A&M
    - Louisville
    - Oklahoma
    - Notre Dame

    I have no allegiances. Just prefer it when Texas teams do well me can move up in rankings.

    Notre Dame and Oklahoma get a chance this weekend to jump right back into the CFP race despite the doom and gloom from national sports writers

    First time in history where the Top 3 AP teams will play ranked opponents on the road.

    The SEC West this season is essentially going to be an eliminator game for head coaches. It looks possible, nay, probable, that at least a couple of coaches from that division get fired, and this week could very well have a lot of bearing on how that plays out.

    MSU/LSU is the first that comes to mind. The M.O. of Dan Mullen teams at MSU is that they win every game that they should win and lose every game that they should lose, and to stave off the hot seat talk, he probably needs to pull some upsets this season. Whether or not he SHOULD be on the hot seat given that he is on track to far and away be the most successful head coach in modern MSU history is a question for another day.

    On the flip side, it's less that a loss to MSU itself would lead to Les Miles being shown the door at LSU and more that a loss to MSU might not portend great things for the rest of LSU's SEC schedule.

    Texas A&M and Auburn is another, particularly on the Auburn side of things. And, oh, don't look now, but another such game for Malzahn is coming up in a couple of weeks against LSU.

    Man, David Bailiff has been at Rice for ten years now. Time flies...

    Also, I see that Arizona State is playing AT UTSA tonight. That's a good get for the Roadrunners, but why would ASU play that game? Between that and Miami going to Boone, NC to play Appalachian State, there are some wonky road games this weekend. I suppose those games very well could be the product of other games falling through at the 11th hour, and I think I heard that was the case with Miami for sure, but still, you don't see games like that very often.

    some really great games so early in the season. It's been years or at least it feels that way.
