It’s going to be a great weekend in college football. Over the last few weeks we’ve seen quite a bit of movement in the rankings. LSU, of course, tumbled, Auburn took a hit administered squarely to the jaw by your Dawgs, and the Aggies did everybody a favor by temporarily shutting up the loudmouths down in Gainesville. This weekend another SEC team will fall down the rankings (although likely less precipitously). Either the Dawgs or the Tide will emerge victorious Saturday, and the other will be on a downturn. College Gameday will be on hand in Tuscaloosa, which historically hasn’t been great for the Dawgs against Alabama... but it hasn’t historically been great for the Dawgs period and that didn’t seem to bother this year’s team against Auburn. So who knows? We’ll just have to wait and see. Let’s do this!

And now for my viewing suggestions for each time slot:
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers @ #21 Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, ESPN - 7:30 pm
If you can’t get excited about two undefeated Sun Belt teams facing off for the conference driver’s seat on a Wednesday night, you may be on the wrong website.
If you can’t get excited about two high-scoring*, probably middle of the road Sun Belt teams facing off on a Thursday night, you may be on the wrong website.
*seriously, the O/U is 72.5 and I’d take the over
I could have just as easily gone with BYU and Houston here, but Saturday looks like it’s going to be a long day and I’ll need my rest.
Which team will reverse its downward trajectory and which will fall further into a tailspin? The smart money here is on Florida and I’m not sure LSU doesn’t have more deep-seated issues than a couple of poor showings. But here’s an interesting little wrinkle: LSU has 467 ypg total offense through 3 games. Florida has 464. LSU has 494.7 ypg offense allowed. Florida has 495 ypg offense allowed. Of course, the competition level has been different, but these two teams may be more alike than we think. Let’s watch and find out.
(Update #1: This game is now up in the air after Florida had to cease team activities for Coronavirus considerations. The schedule will be updated as more information becomes available.
Update #2: The schedule has now been altered to reflect that this game has been postponed)
Kind of a no-brainer, innit?
That’s all for now, folks.
