Your Week 8 TV Guide is up! What you'll be watching, should be watching, should flip to during commercials, and more!

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

I missed last night's game for this. Oops. Sorry, I've been absolutely swamped, this week. Thursdays games were nothing spectacular in the "must watch" category, anyway. Fridays are actually rather bleh, too, since Oregon and Cal have been iffy. Saturday's, though, could be fun.


What You'll Be Watching

NC State at (7) Louisville. Can the Wolfpack - who almost knocked off Clemson last week - put in another great performance against a top ACC team?

What You Should Be Watching

The above game or nothing. I tried to come up with an argument for (10) Wisconsin at Iowa, but do you really want to watch two boring B1G teams? No. You do not. Watch the first game or go do something with your family. There's nothing else on in the early games.


What You'll Be Watching & What You Should Be Watching

(6) Texas A&M at (1) Alabama. This is a game that means a lot for Auburn. The Tigers need Texas A&M to lose at least one game - and this is a good one for it to happen. If they lose this one, then Auburn could at least control their destiny to get the three-way tie for the SEC West. On the other hand, seeing Bama lose is always hilarious.

What You Should Watch If You Can't Stomach That One

Eastern Michigan at (20) Western Michigan. Hell yes I'm suggesting you watch a Directional Michigan game. Western Michigan is actually really good, this year. PJ Fleck is not long for the MAC. And, no, this isn't a joke, Eastern Michigan is likely to be bowl eligible this year, too. That's just nuts. Put a rivalry game into the mix of this one with bigger stakes than they've ever had, and it could be a lot of fun.


What You'll Be Watching & What You Should Be Watching

(17) Arkansas at (21) Auburn. If you're not at the game, you'll be watching it. This is going to be my last Auburn game to attend this season unless the bowl game ends up close to me in Texas, so I'll be there enjoying everything I can about the Auburn experience.

What To Flip Through During Commercial

Oregon State at (5) Washington. If you haven't had a chance to watch Chris Peterson's Huskies this season, then flip over to it occasionally. They've very good and very fun to watch.


(23) Ole Miss at (25) LSU. Can DACOACHO lead his team to another victory? Let's see how the Rebels are looking in this one a week before Auburn has to travel to Oxford to face them.


Washington State at Arizona State. Pull for Wazzou so that we can get an Apple Cup that's for the PAC12 North!
