College Football Games of the Week 2008

The 2008 College Football season is 35 days away. It all begins on Thursday, Aug 28th with 6 games followed by 2 games on Friday, 25 games on Saturday and even 2 games on Sunday! The fun doesn't stop there as 2 games will be played on Monday (Labor Day).

But out of those games, which ones should you watch? Unless you have a favorite team that you follow it may be hard to sift through all the channels and find the big games that actually matter.

Don't fear because I have gone through the schedule and selected the games of the week for the upcoming season. Now of course the "it" games to watch may change as at least one Cinderella team rises to the top every season. But as the schedule sits now, these are the games to watch for 2008 in college football:
