After what was, in my opinion, a fairly pedestrian set of games last weekend, things are looking up for this Saturday (and Thursday and Friday, I suppose). We’ve got ranked on ranked contests, we’ve got a service academy battle, and we have the continuation of Jeremy Pruitt’s march toward the unemployment line. That’s ok though. He’ll get snatched up before you know it. I’d personally love to see him on a staff run by James Franklin or Lane Kiffin or, heck, maybe Phil Fulmer will let him stick around and be his DC. At any rate, this weekend the temps will be cooler and the games will be better. Here they are:

Now for the most intriguing games in each time slot:
It isn’t every day that a team like Temple has the opportunity (nay, the privilege!) to set foot upon the hallowed campus of The University of Eastern Carolina at Greenville. Which, now that I think about it is strange... why would a university in Greenville, South Carolina call itself Eastern Carolina. Greenville is pretty clearly in northwestern South Carolina. Perhaps the swashbucklers should look into a name change. Northwestern University has a nice ring to it and would be much more accurate. Nonetheless, it’s going to be hot in South Carolina (where The University of Eastern Carolina at Greenville is clearly located), so let’s hope the Owls come prepared.
I kind of have to put this one here... what with the ranked team playing on a Friday night and all. But if, like me, you’ve tired of UCF and welcome their newly rediscovered irrelevance, feel free to bust out your best bowtie and swankiest monocle and join me for Dartmouth and Penn over on ESPNU at 7:00.
There is just a ton of BIG12 and B1G action during the noon slate... wonder why that is? So, we’re just gonna go with the ranked on ranked matchup and look forward to another patented Jim Harbaugh hissy fit meltdown.
Check back with me Saturday morning to see if I’ve figured out a way that both teams can lose. I’m confident that I can.
Of course, I’ll be watching the bloodletting in its entirety... but Ohio State/Michigan State might make for an interesting second screen experience.
I feel like I’ve had my fill of 2019 Stanford football. But it is Pac-12 After Dark and, thus, I am obligated to watch.
That’s all for this week, folks. Until next time...
