The college football season is still a mystery. However, it's a mystery we have to give ourselves over to at this point. I'm going to look at the stats from this season, or at least list the stats from this season for each game. For my own personal edification, I still looked at some numbers from last year.

Kansas State (+8.5) at Mississippi State, O/U 48.5, 12:00 PM ET
Kansas State stats: 50.5 points per game (12), 547.0 yards per game (11), 7.0 points allowed per game (5), 208 yards allowed per game (8)
Mississippi State stats: 38.0 points per game (38), 441.5 yards per game (55), 21.5 points allowed per game (51), 387.0 yards allowed per game (81).

Given his price, I'm intrigued by Skylar Thompson ($5,500
