The purpose of these college football threads and articles are to help those who don't know a ton about the sport to stay informed throughout the year up until draft time. There are several people on this site, and others from other SBNation sites, that love to talk about college football. If you consider youself not interested, or not understanding why it's being discussed on a Niners related website then there are plenty of other great articles and fanposts on the site to focus on relative to the 49ers.

The fact that there is several eciting matchups today is besides the point. The fact that there are several games that will potentially have a major impact on the rankings is another. The two biggest that I will have my eye on today is the Oregon vs, Stanford game and of course (for those who know me), the Red River Rival Game between Texas and Oklahoma. Beyond that, there will be plenty to talk about today and I for one am very excited for both of these games. Andrew Luck will prove this afternoon whether or not he should be considered the number one QB in the nation.

Other notable games this afternoon will be:

Miami vs. Clemson

Wisconsin vs. Michigan State

Florida vs. Alabama

Washington at USC

Notre Dame vs. Boston College

Penn State vs. Iowa
