Streeter Lecka

It's hard to believe that we have just made it through eight weeks of college football. The 2014 season has provided us with many surprises and upsets, some new and old faces contending for the coveted four team playoff that will decide the National Champion in January.

Saturday nights marquee matchup was undoubtedly the contest that took place in Tallahassee, FL with the #2 ranked Florida State Seminoles taking on the 5th ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish. An exciting game that came down to the last play, Coach Jimbo Fisher and his defending national champions prevailed as they were able to come up with a huge defensive stand with seconds remaining - that coming after this touchdown was called back for offensive pass interference against the Irish:

#3 Ole Miss continued the Magnolia State's impressive season as they easily handled Tennessee 34-3. (#1 Mississippi St. was idle this week)

The fourth ranked Baylor Bears took one on the chin, dropping their contest in Morgantown, WV 41-27 to the Mountaineers. You know what thats means:

Almost Heaven?

Bouncing back from recent lackluster performances, Coach Nick Saban and #7 Alabama RUTS Texas A&M and their high powered offense to the tune of 59-0. Ouch.
