Boo! It’s Halloween weekend, and that means SCARY times for college football teams! What’s come to be known as “Anarchy Saturday” in some circles, Halloween weekend has traditionally seen some of the greatest upsets in recent college football history. Teams at risk this week? #2 Oregon travels to traditional powerhouse USC to defend their current BCS ranking. #6 Missouri travels to Lincoln, Nebraska, to face a Cornhusker bunch that is anxious to prove they still belong at the top of the Big XII and national standings. And #13 Stanford travels to Washington to face a Husky team that’s ready to go behind star QB Jake Locker. You know the drill, though–only one matchup can take the coveted spot of the CFB Game of the Week!
Admittedly, we’re at a wall right now. With a super-fantastic strategy promo going on right now (ALL strategy titles 40% off!
), a Force Unleashed promo going on right now (get The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, Mac
, 35% off with coupon #TFU2), AND a Halloween special going on (Doom 3 Mac
, QUAKE 4 Mac
, Necrovision PC
, and Cryostasis PC
40% off each), we just couldn’t decide on any two sets of games to pit against one another this week. So we’re doing the next best thing leaving the game choosing to you! (Sort of…) In fact, we’re actually pitting all of our digital games against all of our boxed games!
- If the team representing our digital games wins, then all of our digital games (not currently on sale) will be discounted by 15%!
- If the team representing our boxed games wins, then all of our boxed games (not currently on sale) will be eligible for FREE shipping!
The Football Game
We’re taking it back to the Big 10 (11) this week with the matchup between the #5 Michigan State Spartans
and the #18 Iowa Hawkeyes
! Michigan State has been on a roll this season, going undefeated through 8 games. But the Hawkeyes are no slouch and are looking to keep alive a home win streak against the Spartans that goes back to 1989! Will the Spartans overcome this hurdle and win at Iowa to have the inside track to the Big 10 title? We’ll find out Saturday!
- If the Michigan State Spartans win, then the digital games deal will kick into effect Monday morning.
- If the Iowa Hawkeyes win, then the boxed games deal will kick into effect Monday morning.
The game is set to kick off at 3:30pm ET on ABC/ESPN. Catch a full preview here
