Everything ranging from the Penn State scandal to BCS National Championship Game implications is in play in Week 11 of the college football season.
College campuses have been abuzz with all sorts of craziness this week and now it is time to get out on the field and actually play some football.
After last week's "Game of the Century," we find ourselves staring at another matchup with almost as much importance.
Stanford, who lost only one game last year, are out to avenge that loss against the Oregon Ducks.
Oregon has mostly flown under the radar since opening the season with a loss to LSU, but have not lost again and are poised to knock off the Cardinal in their attempt to a win a third straight Pac-12 championship.
Stanford has legitimate BCS title hopes while the Ducks clinging to an outside chance of getting in.
This is not the only game with intrigue, though.
Penn State, scandal aside, is the current Big Ten leader and welcomes Nebraska into Beaver Stadium for the first time as conference foes.
Lost amidst Joe Paterno's firing and the Jerry Sandusky scandal as a whole, the Nittany Lions are still playing for a BCS game.
Whether or not they can overcome the drama currently engulfing their campus remains to be seen.
Other big matchups include:
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech (Every game is huge for the Pokes.)
Texas at Missouri (Longhorns' only losses came to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.)
West Virginia at Cincinnati (Hugely important for Big East championship.)
TCU at Boise State (Broncos' most important game on the remaining schedule.)
Texas A&M at Kansas State (Damn entertaining Big 12 game.)
Auburn at Georgia (Always fun.)
Michigan at Illinois (Scary game for Wolverines.)
We'll cover all the latest from these games and many more as the day rolls on.
