You know the drill

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Well, here we are.  The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.  College football is raging at its fever pitch, and the 2014 season is truly turning out to be an entertaining one as Top 10 teams are going down faster than a drunken sorority girl who just got the "I'm in law/med school" pick up line.  Conference play is here, with the exception of our delightful little Homecoming matchup, and we are truly in the zenith of the American sporting experience.  So kick back, let that sink in, and let's take in some football.

Tonight's match up of BYU and a much declined UCF provides little excitement with no Taysom Hill and no numbers in front of anyone's name, but the weekend slate is a doozy.  In the Big 12 we have the Red River Rivalry, which as last year proved, is anyone's game in any year.  On top of that we have the unfortunately scheduled Church Bowl, featuring a Top 10 Baylor/TCU matchup that should be an absolute HELL of a game, but one that many of us won't be able to watch.  Rounding out the field of conference play are a couple of games that have the makings of total laugh fests in TTU/WVU and KU/OSU.

The national slate features the much anticipated match ups between Oregon/UCLA, Mississippi State/Auburn, and Ole Miss/Aggy.

Here's the whole line up.  Enjoy!
