The Rebs and the Aggies mark the only matchup between two top-25 teams this week.

Welcome to College Football Saturday Week 8 Edition. We at Ole Miss are doing that thing again where we feel sorry for ourselves. Yes, Ole Miss, with just one SEC loss, can still find its way to the SEC Championship game in Atlanta. Ys, Ole Miss, with two losses, still finds itself in the top-25. Yes, Ole Miss, with its offensive woes, still has one of the SEC's most statistically prolific quarterbacks and a squad of more-than-capable receivers.

But, dammit, we lost to Memphis, y'all.

If we can get over that post-Memphis funk (and we can't), we'll see that what we have on the schedule for this week is a damn important game against a damn good team. Texas A&M comes to town, themselves with just one loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide, and hope to keep themselves in good position to earn the SEC West's spot in Atlanta. As per the usual with a Kevin Sumlin coached team, they're offensively efficient, and marked by speed and big play capabilities. They're also boasting a John Chavis defense now. Or, really, it's a Myles Garrett defense, because any coach should look pretty good with a genetically modified velociraptor coming off of the edge.

Ole Miss, though, has Laremy Tunsil back after a petty suspension for manufactured offenses that resulted from him using his NCAA fame to the benefit of anyone other than the NCAA. If he can shake the rust off, he'll be exactly what Ole Miss needs to slow down the Texas A&M pass rush and give Chad Kelly time to hit the Quon.

To warm you up for the week's only matchup between two top-25 teams, there's a handful of SEC matchups alongside some uninspiring ACC, B1G, and Big XII games to sift through. Yeah, this is a pretty bad week of football. Oh well.

Other games of note

Auburn at Arkansas

Ole Miss still has to play both of these teams. Let's see if they're still struggling, or if they're doing that thing where they figure themselves out halfway through the season just in time to beat Ole Miss.

Missouri at Vanderbilt

Nobody's that interested in watching Alabama eviscerate Tennessee in their annual rivalry game so, instead, switch off of CBS and on to the SEC Network and watch Missouri and Vanderbilt slug it out to an improbable and confusing 12-5 outcome. There will be personal fouls, dropped passes, lots of turnovers, and a fistful of touchdowns negated by penalties. It will be the type of football that concussed your grandfather, but with all the sissified safety equipment and rules of 2015. /snarls //shakesfist ///spits

[We at the Cup like safety equipment and rules, especially because they provide neat boundaries into which we have to force things like Mizzou/Vanderbilt games.]

No. 3 Utah at USC

Utah is a very good football team. They're experienced and sound on defense, have as much big play potential as anybody on offense save for the team of comic book superheroes playing for Baylor, and are well-prepared to play every one of their opponents. USC is also a very good football team - no, really, they are. They're very talented and should be able to play up to just about any team in the country. They just haven't, falling to 3-3 with losses to Stanford, Washington, and Notre Dame. Still, with Cody Kessler at quarterback, almost anything is possible for the Trojans, which might explain why they're actually favored to win this contest.
