There aren’t a ton a marquee games this weekend, but you’ll be happy to learn that there are a lot of decent games. And what’s more, they’re distributed throughout the day in a much more pleasing fashion than they have been in weeks past. If I’m being honest, I’m not thrilled with Georgia’s noon slot, but I’ll take it if it means I get to watch some of the other games I’m looking forward to. It really is going to be a glorious day.
So without any further ado, here is your...
WEEK 6 COLLEGE FOOTBALL TV SCHEDULE >>> TV SCHEDULE WEEK 6.pdf
And now on to your prime viewing options in each time slot:
Arkansas State Red Wolves @ Georgia Southern Eagles, 8:00, ESPN2
It’s been a rough start to the season for the 0-3 Eagles. It’s been a rough start to the season for the 1-2 Red Wolves. Someone is gonna win this game. Some might think they’re too good to settle in for a game between Sun Belt teams with losing records. But just remember, there will come a time between January and August that you would be willing to sell off an appendage for just a few moments of such a game. So get off your high horse and enjoy some Wednesday night football!
#17 Louisville Cardinals @ #24 N.C. State Wolfpack, 8:00, ESPN
It’s kind of a shame that the ACC’s marquee matchup of the week is a Thursday Night Lights game. But it’s fine with me, because I’m always down for an interesting Thursday contest.
Boise State Broncos @ BYU Cougars, 10:15, ESPN
I honestly can’t recommend staying up to watch a 2-2 Boise St. take on a 1-4 BYU squad. But if you’ve got nothing better going on, I suppose you could do worse.
#5 Georgia Bulldogs @ Vanderbilt Commodores, 12:00, ESPN
Who’s ready for another revenge game???
#23 West Virginia Mountaineers @ #8 TCU Horned Frogs, 3:30, FS1
You’ll forgive my lack of interest in the football game (?) being played between the LSU Tigers and Florida Gators, but this promises to be significantly more interesting and offers the bonus of having actual implications.
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide @ Texas A&M Aggies, 7:15, ESPN
I’ve liked the signs of life I’ve seen in Sumlin’s Aggies over the last few weeks. Granted, I fully expect the Crimson Tide to destroy that life by the end of the 1st quarter or so, but it should still be fun. And, who knows, maybe the Aggies come to play and will be able to make things interesting. Stranger things have happened.
California Golden Bears @ #6 Washington Huskies, 10:45, ESPN
One of these days, a team is going to give the Dogs (Not Dawgs) a run for their money. I doubt it will be the Golden Bears. In fact, I suspect we may have to wait for the Apple Cup against the Washington State Cougars. But, theoretically, it COULD be the Golden Bears.
That’s it for now folks. Until next time...
