The 2013 college football season is coming down the home stretch. Normally we do a basic Saturday football thread, and that's it. However, tonight features some serious football action up against the NFL's Thursday Night Football. We'll have a separate thread for Washington vs. Minnesota, but I thought it would be cool to have a thread for one of the biggest Thursday's in recent college football history.
Tonight, we've got a crazy double-header. At 4:30 p.m. PT, No. 6 Baylor hosts No. 10 Oklahoma on Fox Sports 1. At 6 p.m. PT, No. 5 Stanford hosts No. 3 Oregon on ESPN. Both games are huge, but obviously Stanford brings a little more cachet to the Bay Area.
The talent on display in Palo Alto is notable. According to SI's Stewart Mandel, 39 reps from 20 different teams are on hand for the game, including 17 GMs, VPs or scouting directors. Some familiar names are in the house:

We'll have a separate thread for Thursday Night Football, but if you want to talk some college football, go to town.
