College Football Open Thread: Mizzou looking for a win in Lincoln, Rams looking for able bodies at WR

It's a big day for college football, as we get into the meat and potatoes part of the NCAA season. 

I know lots of people here will be watching an undefeated Missouri team on the road against Nebraska. Of course, USC has a huge game against #1 Oregon, a showdown in SoCal before they head into the NCAA discipline abyss. 

As for the prospects on the field today, it's hard to think about the St. Louis Rams NOT looking closely at wide receivers. If I were the Rams, I'd be looking at big name free agents AND the draft to round out the receivers. 

Here's a mock draft at Walter Football that has the Rams picking 9th, too low for Georgia's A.J. Green and too high for Alabama's Julio Jones. They have the Rams taking Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers. In the second round, they have the Rams picking Ohio State WR DeVier Posey, who may not even come out next year. Round three gives the Rams Oklahoma RB DeMarco Murray. I like that draft, but if the Rams can't get one of the premier talents at WR in the first round, they need to write a big check in free agency for an established WR (Vincent Jackson?) and then they also need to take a second round or third round WR like that. Do you really want to live through another year of 4th and 5th string receivers?
