This past weekend was the most exciting weekend of college football that I can remember in a long time. This week offers similar intrigue, featuring five games between teams who are both ranked in the top 25. Beyond that, there are several other matchups to keep an eye on with major conference implications.
From an NFL draft perspective, the attention should be on Oregon and UCLA, as two quarterbacks with high first-round aspirations will take center-stage. Before breaking them down, there were some great individual performances from last week to highlight.
