Saturday and college football. A match made in Heaven.

Notre Dame is reaching for the Playoffs this season.

Week 1 of the college football season.  Of course, we are all amped up for the Ducks-Eastern Washington game, and as always, there will be adequate coverage and a thread on that game.  What I am going to do is let you know what else is going on in the college football world.  Being that there are so many games going on today, and most of them are cupcake games, I'll spare you the details of the match-ups.  Aside from the Ducks, the game to watch may arguably be the Texas-Notre Dame game.  We've already seen Michigan get humbled by Utah and Michigan State look strong against Western Michigan (37-24), in addition to Boise State giving a loss to our ol pals, washington (16-13).  That said, I'd like to mention that the huskies are currently 0-1 this season.  I don't know about you, but that makes my soul smile.  Baylor dropped 56 points on SMU last night, and Georgia Tech laid 69 points on Alcorn State on Thursday.
