Blog Photo - NCAAF Week 8 Live ThreadThere are some other really good games in Week 8. UCLA-Stanford is still a top matchup despite Stanford's face plant last week. Johnny Football and company have a solid home test against Auburn, who seem to have recovered from the end of the Chizik era. It's also USC-Notre Dame week apparently. All of that is secondary to the biggest season so far this season, and the biggest game in the ACC in a long, long time: Florida State-Clemson. This one has just about everything. It has two top five teams going at it, it has two exciting quarterbacks in Tahj Boyd and Jameis Winston, it has other playmakers like Sammy Watkins, and obviously it has national title implications. This one starts at 8:00, which is perfect, because it makes every other game this week feel like the undercard it truly is.

Not a good day for top ten teams as Clemson, LSU, Texas A&M and UCLA all go down.

So, Missouri is now in the drivers seat in the SEC East. That was not expected.

Could be a changing of the guard on that side with Vandy and Tennessee also pulling off upsets of Georgia and South Carolina.  Missouri can really put the clamps on next week when they host the Gamecocks
