Personal TV Schedule 2010-11 Bowl Edition

College Football Bowl Season

2010
December 18
5:30 p.m.-9 p.m.
Northern Illinois Huskies vs. Fresno State Bulldogs

To me this match-up is head-and-shoulders above the other two games scheduled for the day.  The top team in the MAC versus one of the best year-in-year mid-major programs in the country.  This should be good.

December 22
8 p.m.-11 p.m.

Utah Utes vs. Boise State Broncos

This could have been an annual match-up in the MWC, instead the Pac-10 came calling and Utah answered so they could have a better chance at an AQ bid.  The Broncos were a FQ away from a BCS game if not the National Championship Game, but that's why you play.  This is game is easily one of the top three in the bowl season.

December 23
8 p.m.-11 p.m.
Navy Midshipmen vs. San Diego State Aztecs

I can't describe how interested I am in this game.  A surprising team in the MWC in the Aztecs in basically a home game against the Midshipmen that started off the year not their usual selves only to right the ship, pardon the pun, and continue an impressive decade of year-in and year-out success for a service academy.

December 28
6:30 p.m.-10 p.m.
West Virginia Mountaineers vs. North Carolina State Wolfpack

The Mountaineers almost won Big East, the Wolfpack were a win against Maryland away from facing the Hokies for the ACC Championship.  The Mountaineers haven't found themselves offensively since Rich Rod's departure and barely finished above expectations while the Wolfpack surprised everyone, especially early in the season.  This game is just intriguing to me and that's why I want to see it.

December 30
6:40 p.m.-10:15 p.m.
North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Tennessee Volunteers

My Vols finished 4-0 in November to reach 6-6 and bowl eligiblity while the Tar Heels were on and off all year because of suspensions throughout the year because of the agent scandal that hit them in August.  These two were to start a home-and-home series next year, but the Vols wanted to postpone it only for the Tar Heels to refuse them thus the series was cancelled.  Now they won't be facing one another two in their next three games, they were scheduled for their 2nd game of the 2011 season, so for the first time since the 1960s UNC faces UT, should be good.

December 31
7:30-11 p.m.
South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Florida State Seminoles

Both teams did better than expected, both lost their conference championship games, and both are looking for a way to springboard into next season.  Some just seems to say this should be a very good game.

2011
January 1
1 p.m.-4 p.m.
Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Michigan State Spartans

I'll be honest, I'm watching this game more for Michigan State than Alabama

4:30 p.m.-8 p.m.
Wisconsin Badgers vs. TCU Horned Frogs

This if the first BCS game and it could be one of the best, plus its the ROSE BOWL!

January 3
8:30 p.m.-12 midnight
Stanford Cardinal vs. Virginia Tech Hokies

The Cardinal were the 2nd-best team in the Pac-10 all year and for a half had the Ducks on the ropes, the Hokies after a hard fought battle against Boise State and a major letdown against James Madison have won 11 straight games.  This Orange Bowl looks like it'll be one to remember.

January 4
8:30 p.m.-11 p.m.
Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Arkansas Razorbacks

I can't miss the Buckeyes playing and especially against the Razorbacks and their pass happy offense.

January 7
8 p.m.-11:30 p.m.
LSU Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies

This game just smells like its going to be something to remember.

January 10
8:30 p.m.-12 midnight
Auburn Tigers vs. Oregon Ducks

It's the National Championship Game and it might never end, though to be honest the rust factor will be the "X" element in this game and whomever gets over it first will most likely win.

There is my personal viewing schedule for the 2010-11 bowl season.  See you in the first week of the 2011 season.

Personal TV Schedule 10-16-10

Missouri Tigers at Texas A&M Aggies

3:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
Arkansas Razorbacks at Auburn Tigers

7 p.m.- 11 p.m.

Personal TV Schedule 9-18-10

College Football Week 3

Well its the third week of the college football season and we've seen Boise State look like it might have all but sown up a place in the BCS Championship Game to seeing James Madison University throw a wrench into those travel plans.  The ACC was embarrassed against BCS conference opponents, the SEC East race became very interesting, and my hometown Chattanooga Mocs had another Top 5 FCS team come back and defeat them for the second consecutive game being outscored by a total of 5 points (sigh).  But on to my personal television view schedule for tomorrow...

12 noon-3:30 pm
Arkansas Razorbacks at Georgia Bulldogs (primary)
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at North Carolina Tar Heels (secondary)
Maryland Terrapins at West Virginia Mountaineers (blow out back-up)

The Razorbacks passing attack will test the Dawg's defense that wasn't able to stop Marcus Lattimore last week, but the question is came the Razorback defense play up to SEC talent?  This interdivisional SEC match-up is to me the biggest game of the early afternoon.  My secondary game could have been my primary game if not for Georgia Tech laying an egg against Kansas last week, but if my primary game becomes a blowout I'll check out the Jackets-Tar Heels more than during commercials.

3:30 pm-7 pm
GAME OF THE WEEK
Florida Gators at Tennessee Volunteers

Last week the Vols were able to be competive against Oregon for a full half and a part of the third quarter, also Florida started off slowly before polishing off South Florida in the 2nd half.  Could this be a sign of an upset or maybe the Vols competing hard against the Gators into the 4th quarter?  Don't really know, Coach Dooley has said and after looking back at it I sorta agree that the young Vols sorta gave up after Matt Simms' pick six.  The Volunteers have 18 freshmen in their two deep, so while I hope they'll be more competive this week I don't see a victory but I suspect we'll get a better performance further into the game.

7 pm-10 pm
Clemson Tigers at Auburn Tigers (primary)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Michigan State Spartans (blow out back-up)

The Battle of the Tigers should be a good back and forth game from beginning to end, so I don't suspect I'll fully turn my attention to the Irish-Spartan match-up.  I'm not picking Clemson to win this game because they're from the ACC, which after last week is a fairly weak BCS conference and need a big win to earn some respect back.  If Clemson wins this game I think they become a really important player in the ACC, if Auburn wins then they could start to be a player in the SEC West.  This is going to be a really Big Game, can't wait.

That's all for this week, come back next week to see my personal viewing schedule or leave a comment about your personal viewing schedule.
