The Late Shift College Football Open Comment Thread.

Among the technological wonders of the Aztec empire? The giant inflatable football helmet. Is such a thing even possible? - Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Welp. So far the only upsets this college football Saturday have been on the part of those who pull for upsets.But there's still hope for those rooting for Team Chaos. UCLA is about to try to derail Oregon's national title hopes on ESPN, and South Carolina will try to bring Missouri's fairy tale run to a close on ESPN2.

Penn State travels to Ohio State in an effort to deal Urban Meyer his first loss as head coach of the Buckeyes (for the record he lost his scruples before he ever got to Columbus). And for the hardcore east coast insomniacs, Stanford will travel to Corvallis to take on Oregon State at 10:30 eastern on ESPN. Fresno State will take on San Diego State on ESPN2 in the same slot, but if you see the end of that one live you really should spend Sunday morning researching your treatment options. Because addiction is ugly.

So grab your coffee, scotch, or Clowney gas, Mat your Mauks, Stress your Berks, and handle whatever else you need to do to prep for the late shift. It's gonna be a long night. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
