The one in which Norm gets the week right

Jonathan Daniel

Back to the grind, folks.  Back to the grind.

Our beloved Clones return to conference play this week, heading down to the land of steers & queer hipsters and Charlie Strong to take on the bullies of the Big 12.  However, this week is absolutely rife with quality football.

For starters, look tonight show cases what should be a pretty entertaining match up in the Pac 12 as #20 Utah travels to Corvallis, Oregon to take on the unranked-but-getting-votes Beavers of Oregon State.

The Big 12 is full of interesting match ups as well.  #4 Baylor heads into the Mountains to take in our Riot Bowl brothers in what is sure to be an absolutely raucous crowd in Morgantown.  KSU travels to Norman and OSU travels to Ft. Worth as we watch a couple of Top 15 matchups start to create some separation around the league.  Tech and KU battle for the cellar.

The rest of the country has some great matchups to offer as well.  There's that game in Tallahassee that you might have heard about on ESPN, and Aggy returns to the site that where Johnny Something or Other won the Heisman Trophy in an evening.  The only other match up featuring 2 Top 25 squads is the Stanford vs. ASU tilt Saturday night.

So grab a beer, kick back, and enjoy some bowl.  And of course,

GO STATE!
