Weekly College Football Rewind – Week 8

By George Harvey -

One more week of college football is in the history books and boy was it a fun one. Let’s categorize them and see just how fun Week 8 of the college football season was.

Best of the Best
#2 Florida State over #5 Notre Dame 31-27

In a game that would have been a “signature” win for either school, the ‘Noles put all the negative spotlight behind them and squeaked out a victory over the visiting Fighting Irish. As a game that went back-and-forth and had some very impressive plays, this contest is this week’s sole “Best of the Best” game.

Who Saw That Coming?
West Virginia over #4 Baylor 41-27

Seriously. Who saw this final score coming? Sure, two years ago the two battled it out and kept it neck-and-neck until the final minutes, but that was with two completely different rosters. It just goes to show that Dana Holgersen still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Toss Up
#14 Kansas State over #11 Oklahoma 31-30
#7 Alabama over #21 Texas A&M 59-0
#12 TCU over #15 Oklahoma State 42-9

I’m not entirely positive how I feel about these three games. Kansas State is one of those teams who could be somewhat of a sleeper, but then again, Oklahoma only lost by one point. The Aggies looked terrible, for a lack of a better adjective, in the loss to the Tide. Meanwhile, the Horned Frogs looked very impressive in the win over the Cowboys.

Joklahoma, when will the love-fest with Stoops end? Big game Bob needs to wipe that smirk off of his face. I felt like the Alabama win would get them back to elite status, but then they cough up one they are not supposed to. Geez. Shut up already. Roll Tide 59-0.
