    The best treat that goes with Halloween? Howzabout the end of bad October schedules? Oh sure, we get a couple decent games every weekend, but check out the first week of November and start making pizza delivery plans now. Yours truly seriously considered boarding a plane for either Bama or Detroit (as in three MAC games, plus Michigan-Rutgers) before choosing the couch in a massive case of FOMO.

    LSU @ Bama – Forget the crazy offenses, forget the wide open, high-scoring throwdowns, and watch two sets of behemoths attempt to bludgeon each other into unconsciousness. We don't watch Game Of Thrones – if there's no chance of a kick six, why bother? – but we're guessing that it wouldn't be out of line to see Leonard Fournette and Derrick Henry in an episode, dressed up in some insane medieval gladiator **** and going at each other from on top of fullback, er, horseback at midfield. May the best pernach win.

    Florida State @ Clemson – Okay Clemson, here's your last chance to Clemson this year. Three words: Not. Gonna. Happen.

    Stanford @ Colorado At some point, the Buffs are going to get back to where they used to be. This, unfortunately, might not be the point.

    Kansas @ Texas – It won't happen. It can't possibly happen. Of course, neither could the Iowa State debacle. Oh, and if it does happen, the entire state may spontaneously combust. Before you get too excited about that prospect, remember that America needs oil.

    Utah @ U-Dub – By all rights, Utah should win going away. You get the feeling, however, that Washington is thisclose to putting it all together, and you get the feeling that Utah may still be a little disappointed about how things turned out two weeks ago. Kyle Whittingham is really good at having his team ready to play in games like this, and he'd better be good at it again this week. After all, he flunked the USC audition, and The U will be watching closely.

    TCU @ Oklahoma State – Lookee here: it's another huge conference showdown! The only problem is that Oklahoma State hasn't really beaten anybody. By sundown this Saturday, that will still be the case.

    Navy @ Memphis – Hot damn, it's a showdown of AAC unbeatens! It's also a really funky roadblock on the Justin Fuente Can Have Any Job He Wants World Tour. The Tigers ought to win fairly easily, but let's see how this year's up-and-coming supercoach makes out against a good triple option team.
