As we roll into Week 8 of the college football season, we have baseball on our brains. Well, at least Crappy does, as you’ll learn in this week’s show what it’s like to record a college football podcast less than an hour after the Cleveland Indians win the American League pennant. (Spoiler alert: It’s, umm, interesting.)
All kidding (and baseball) aside, we do take a look at three games you’ll want to pay attention to this weekend.
We start with TCU at West Virginia, two Big 12 teams that no one has talked much about yet this year. But the Mountaineers have very quietly entered this game undefeated. Will they stay that way? Or are the Horned Frogs primed to play spoiler?
Next, we look at the big one this week — Texas A&M at Alabama, a game we both really wish was being played in College Station. Do the Aggies have a chance to pull the upset? Or is Alabama just that good this year?
And finally, we look at a game that is of particular interest to both of us — Ohio State at Penn State. Beaver Stadium will be rocking its annual White Out … a situation that has, at least in fleeting moments, given the Buckeyes fits. What’s in the cards this year? (Not-so-spoiler alert: Although we have rooting interests on opposite sidelines, our pick for this game is unanimous.)
