College Football Week 6
What can I say about last week, stunning amazement followed by stunning disbelief. The Vols almost, almost got the victory against LSU only for inexperience and pure chaos to come in and give Les Miles one of the biggest gift wins in his career. Also it turns out my decision not to tune into the Alabama-Florida game last week was a wise one and my tuning in to Oregon-Stanford was justified. But while last week had some great potential games occuring at the same time all throughout the day, this week after the late afternoon games I might not be watching any football come prime time. Shocking I know. Also I'll be interested in how the Chattanooga Mocs perform against The Citadel on the road, a week before homecoming against the Georgia Southern Eagles, that game will be on the radio starting at 2 p.m. so I'll be playing with various media at the same time.
12:21 p.m.-4 p.m.
Tennessee Volunteers at Georgia Bulldogs
Indiana Hoosiers at Ohio State Buckeyes (blowout back-up)
Baylor Bears vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders (blowout back-up #2)
In and around Chattanooga, the Tennessee-Georgia game is the biggest college football game of the year. This year, the luster is off as the Dawgs come in with a 4 game losing streak and the Vols are in the middle of a rebuilding year coming off a stunning upset turn loss against LSU. The Dawgs are favored, but if the Vols come out with confidence this could come down to the wire and anything can happen, so I'm betting that I'll only tune into the Indiana-Ohio State game during commercials or at halftime. The rest of the early games, except for Baylor-Texas Tech, just don't interest me. The Bears coming off that huge, margin of victory, win over Kansas and Tech under Tuberville could be interesting to view if things in my other two games just become really one-sided.
4 p.m.-7 p.m.
Game of the Week
Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines (primary)
Texas A&M Aggies vs. Arkansas Razorbacks (secondary)
Elon Phoenix at Appalachian State Mountaineers (SoCon interest)
While all these games start at 3:30, I'll only be able to watch them starting at 4 since that is when Tennessee-Georgia will most likely be over. The game I want to watch is Spartans-Wolverines, to me this is bigger than Alabama-South Carolina or any other game today. If the Spartans win then they become the threat to Ohio State, if Shoelace Robinson leds the Wolverines over their in-state rival then they'll be the threat to Ohio State. Basically the winner of this game joins Ohio State as the contender for the Big Ten Title. Texas A&M-Arkansas looks like it might have shootout written all over it, if the MSU-Michigan game becomes a blowout then this one has the potential to be close to the end. And a lot of you might wonder why I have an FCS game on my list, well basically the Mocs lost to Appy State by 1 AND have yet to face Elon. The Mocs are fighting to at least finish in the top 3 of the conference this year and so as a fan of the Mocs I want to know how this big SoCon match-up goes.
7 p.m.-11 p.m.
Oregon State Beavers at Arizona Wildcats (maybe)
East Carolina Pirates at Southern Miss Golden Eagles (maybe)
To be honest, I might not watch anything during this time slot. These two games are the only thing at interest me right now. I'm not really into the FSU-Miami game and LSU-Florida could be a unwatchable.
That's all for this week, come back next week to see my personal viewing schedule or leave a comment about what you're going to watch this week in college football.
