Can’t Get There Fromm Here...

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Wednesday morning, Dawg fans... and you know what that means! Time for another TV schedule post to help prep you for all of this weekend’s nationally televised collegiate football action.

But let’s begin with something sure to get your toes tapping (and, may I say, a glorious opportunity for a Jake Fromm pun):

Now that I got that out of my system, here’s your schedule along with my picks for the weekend’s most watchable matchups in each time slot:

Your Week 2 College Football TV Schedule >>>>> TV SCHEDULE WEEK 2.pdf


Thursday

Sam Houston State Bearkats @ Prarie View A&M Panthers, 7:30, ESPNU

I hope you like FCS football, because this is your only choice.

Friday

#11 Oklahoma State Cowboys @ South Alabama Jaguars, 8:00, ESPN2

What’s the deal with all these Power Five teams playing smaller conference teams on the road (#16 Miami Hurricanes @ Arkansas State Red Wolves anyone?). I have to assume it’s recruiting related, but it seems like there has to be a better way.

Saturday Noon

#17 Louisville Cardinals @ UNC Tarheels, 12:00, ESPN

Amidst a sea of FBS teams playing cupcakes, this conference clash stands out. Not that I think it will be a particularly good game, but at least it has implications. I gotta say, I’m not super impressed with the slate of noon games thus far this season.

Saturday Afternoon

Pittsburgh Panthers @ #4 Penn State Nittany Lions, 3:30, ABC

And speaking of which, the 3:30 lineup isn’t much better. The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Oregon Ducks might have held some sway a few years ago, but for now we’ll have to just settle for in-state rivalry hatred.

Saturday Evening

#15 Georgia Bulldogs @ #24 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 7:30, NBC

This is a no-brainer for those of us here at Dawg Sports. But, gee, it would have been nice to watch a couple of the day’s big games. For example, I’m sure I would have enjoyed watching the #13 Auburn Tigers take on the #3 Clemson Tigers. Or how about the #5 Oklahoma Sooners and the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes? Or even the #14 Stanford Cardinal and #6 USC Trojans. But our media overlords don’t want that, do they? Look, I get it. Primetime games are where the money is at. But you know where else the money is at? Not fracturing your potential viewer base into four different parts. Especially when the earlier time slots are absolutely abysmal. Guess I’ll have to check out highlights of all the other great action.

Saturday Late

Boise State Broncos @ #20 Washington State Cougars, 10:30, ESPN

PAC-12 AFTER DARK Y’ALL! ARRRRGH!

That’s all for now folks. Until next time...

GOOOO DAWGS!!!
