Feel free to comment in with any predictions, in-game thoughts or post-game thoughts or discuss anything else that's going on in college football.
Also, at around 9:20 I will go on live to talk with Pete Sonski on Leatherheads of the Gridiron to talk some college football. We are set to talk about the Heisman since I've been hosting Bloguin's Heisman Poll over on Crystal Ball Run. We might also chat about some coaching changes and some of Saturday's action depending on the time.
