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.
