Week Eight: College Football Open Thread

She might not be in college, but she's showing a lot of knowledge! - Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The College Football landscape continues to thin itself out as we march towards bowl season. Week Eight already!

Who says the ACC don't play no football?

Well, someone with bad command of the English langauge, that's who... but that's not the point!

Today's big matchup pits none other than fifth-ranked Florida State and their superstar redshirt freshman Jameis Winston against third-ranked Clemson and their superstar quarterback Tajh Boyd. The 8pm Eastern collision is the first matchup of Top 5 teams on the College Football schedule for 2013 and figures to be an incredible fight.

The game is in Death Valley, which should give the TIgers the edge over the Seminoles, but expect the star power to really be on display.

Of course, the schedule for the day gives no apologies for the matchups it has in tow.

At 330pm ET, The Pac-10 hits center stage as undefeated and ninth-ranked UCLA try to increase their national title visibility by traveling to Stanford and taking on the 13th-ranked Cardinal. Stanford has one loss and is desperate to stay in the hunt.

The SEC takes a backseat for once, as top-ranked Alabama hosts Arkansas and sixth-ranked LSU travels to Ole Miss. The conference does boast two of it's own all-Top 25 matchups, however.

Seventh-ranked Texas A&M hosts 24th-ranked Auburn at 330pm while surprise Missouri defends it's rank of 14 as it hosts two-loss Florida. The Gators are ranked 22nd and will try to end the unbeaten season of the Tigers.

Want to watch elite players? Here's a look at the pre-season candidates for the Nagurski and Outland Trophies. Compare that against the complete television schedule provided by 506Sports.
