College Football Week 5

One month down, two to go for the college football season.  The first weekend of October will bare witness to two huge games that will help shape the race for the National Championship and both are on at the same time.  However earlier in the day we have some interesting games that will shape conference races around the nation.  My Chattanooga Mocs have a bye this week after defeating Western Carolina on the road last week to reach 2-2 and 1-1 in the Southern Conference, while we face a very winnable game against The Citadel next week the week after the ranked and soaring Georgia Southern Eagles come to town in what could be a very important game for both teams.  But that is in the future, lets go to my personal television viewing schedule for tomorrow...

12 noon-3:30 p.m.
Miami Hurricanes at Clemson Tigers (primary)
Navy Midshipmen at Air Force Falcons (secondary beginning at 2:30 p.m.)
Kansas Jayhawks at Baylor Bears (blowout back-up)

Of the slate of early afternoon games, the Miami-Clemson game really stands out.  These two have had great games ever since the Hurricanes joined the ACC and I wouldn't be surprised if it happened again.  Just in case either team decides to lay an egg, cnce the Navy-Air Force game starts at 2:30 I'll be watching that until 3:30 p.m.  And for commercials and an earlier blow out back-up, the intriguing match-up between Kansas-Baylor looks view-worthy only for the fact that Baylor is on TV.

3:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
Tennessee Volunteers at LSU Tigers (primary)
Virginia Tech Hokies at North Carolina State Wolfpack (secondary, primary blowout back-up)
Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan State Spartans (secondary, secondary blowout back-up)

This really sucks for my overall college football fan side because the Vols are on their first road trip and though I don't expect them to win because I'm realistic, any national 'experts' that think LSU are ripe for an upset should be required to take an immediate drug test, however if the Vols were to get the upset I wouldn't complain.  However, the VA Tech-NC State and the Wisconsin-MSU games just scream to be viewed and if the Bayou Bengals just start crushing the Vols I'm going to switch my attention to one or both of those games.

8 p.m.-11 p.m.
Game of the Week
Stanford Cardinal at Oregon Ducks

Everyone who is an SEC fan might think I'm nuts, but the Tide are at home and Tebow isn't the Gator QB this game doesn't excite me.  The Stanford-Oregon game, on the other hand, does.  The winner becomes the clear favorite for the Pac-10 Title with only Arizona being the only really potential bump in the road to going undefeated and making a case for the BCS Championship Game.

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

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.
