Things have been going just fantastic so far. At least here in the Classic City (and Tuscaloosa, Eugene, Ames, and a handful of other places). I’m guessing the folks in Tallahassee would disagree. We’ve already seen a record amount of movement in the AP Top 25 to this point in the season and with the exception of a few stalwarts, I don’t see that changing. So while some teams still hold their fate in their hands, others are ready to sink into the pillowy-soft part of their schedule to recover and hope for those teams ahead of them to trip up. It’s time to work our way through the last of the cupcake games and start getting into the meat of conference schedules. I, for one, am ready and raring to go.
Let’s do it!

And now for my viewing suggestions for each time slot:
Ohio Bobcats @ Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, 8:00 p.m. - ESPN
As Thursday night contests go, this isn’t a terrible one. I, mean it’s no Georgia Tech/Boston College or whatever, but it’ll do. What’s that? Ohio is coming off a loss to Duquesne? Yikes.
UCF Knights @ Louisville Cardinals, 7:30 p.m. - ESPN
All aboard the Gus Bus! Time for UCF to try to drive its way back into the Top 25.
Nebraska Cornhuskers @ #3 Oklahoma Sooners, 12:00 p.m. - FOX
Another FOX Big Noon Kickoff! I’d imagine that the Sooners are looking to make a statement and I can’t imagine a better opportunity to do so than against a still reeling Cornhusker squad.
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide @ #11 Florida Gators, 3:30 p.m. - CBS
The first big SEC matchup of the season (at least if you’re going on rankings alone). I’m not expecting this one to be particularly close, but you never know. If it does get out of hand, you should feel free to flip over to ABC for the blood-letting between Clemson and Georgia Tech.
South Carolina Gamecocks @ #2 Georgia Bulldogs, 7:00 p.m. - ESPN
Lest you’ve forgotten (because you have absolutely no interaction with South Carolina fans on a regular basis), South Carolina played something of a spoiler for the Dawgs the last time the Gamecocks visited Sanford. I fully anticipate the vengeance being spectacular.
#19 Arizona State Sun Devils @ #23 BYU Cougars, 10:15 p.m. - ESPN
You kind of have to go with the ranked matchup in the late night slot, but if you still haven’t gotten your fill of college football by 2 a.m., don’t forget the FS1 still has you covered with San Jose St. and Hawaii.
That’s all for now, folks. Have a great rest of your week and get ready for another amazing college football Saturday.
