One of the unrivaled pleasures of watching the Georgia Bulldogs win a conference football game starting at noon is the ability to get home, settle in, and watch the evening's college football action free from worry or doubt.
Okay, I don't know about you but I still have my doubts about this Bulldog squad. But I'm not going to let those stop me from enjoying a great night of college football action. As always RedCrake already provided your full television schedule, but the highlights are these:
- LSU at Alabama, 8:00 p.m. (CBS). It's the annual affair which has become the de facto game of the year in the SEC. Sometimes it lives up to the hype. Other times it doesn't. But it's safe to say that the winner of this one goes a long way toward punching a ticket to Atlanta and perhaps the college football playoff.
- Auburn at Texas A&M, 7:30 p.m. (SEC Network). All I want to see is the entire Auburn defense ejected in the second half for totally incorrect targeting calls on plays in which they don't even make physical contact with the ballcarrier. Is that too much to ask? I don't think that's too much to ask.
- Minnesota at Ohio State, 8:00 p.m. (ABC). Sad Urban Meyer pizza eating season is upon us. At some point one of the contenders for the playoff is going to self-emolate. It might as well be the Buckeyes, and I want to be there when it happens. Don't let me down, Gophers.
- Navy at Memphis, 7:00, ESPN2. If you're going to argue that the guy should be the next head coach of the University of Georgia you at least owe it to the rest of us to see what we'd be buying.
Until later . . .
