Wednesday October 14th, 2015

Last week’s slate didn’t feature many intriguing games on paper, but there were a few interesting results. This week’s slate features a lot of intriguing matchups, which should mean even more interesting results. From heavyweight bouts between Power Five teams to a huge opportunity for one Group of Five outfit to shock an SEC contender, Week 7 offers plenty of viewing options for fans across the country.
