Five things to watch this week in college football.
1. Oregon at Arizona State on a Thursday didn't look like much of a game two months ago with the Sun Devils coming off a 6-7 season. First-year Coach Todd Graham, however, has Arizona State at 5-1 and ranked No. 24 in the coaches' poll as his team looks to derail the Ducks' national title hopes.
2. Can anyone stop Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who had 576 yards (395 passing, 181 rushing) and six touchdowns in the Aggies' 59-57 win over Louisiana Tech? We're about to find out, as Texas A&M hosts Louisiana State in a matchup of the nation's No. 6 offense versus the second-ranked defense.
3. Mid-October football can only mean…Stanford vs. California? Some of the fallout of conference-expansion schedule juggling includes having to move traditional games off traditional dates. This year's Big Game is in Berkeley with a twist: Cal is coming off a win and Stanford is coming off a loss.
