Game of the Week: Washington at Stanford
In what looks to be a slower week, there are few "marquee" matchups to draw one's attention, but there are several games that should be at least mildly interesting.
Kansas State is going to be better than expected—they always are under Bill Snyder—and will have a chance to knock off Oklahoma State. Both teams should be undefeated going into this game.
Whoever wins the matchup between Oklahoma and TCU will get a significant boost in the Big 12 conference title race. Virginia Tech will get to try to make a push in the ACC Coastal Division race as the face off against North Carolina, while Arizona State and fierce defensive lineman Will Sutton get a shot at Notre Dame.
Ohio State will be coming off a tough game against Wisconsin and have to turn around and face a Northwestern squad that is no longer the whipping boy of the Big Ten.
Meanwhile, Keith Price and Washington travel to Stanford where the Cardinal will be looking for revenge from their 2012 loss to the Huskies.
It will still be early in the season, and few of these matchups have national championship implications unless there is a major upset.
