    Opening weekend, and the best game Fox can find for prime time is Baylor vs. Abilene Christian?

    edit: my bad, didn’t realize Nebraska vs Akron was on a weather delay. Not that it would be much better.

    They had Akron/Nebraska, and they got rained out.

    Last night, when Miami was getting torn apart by LSU, someone tweeted out that Fox needs labor day weekend games on Sunday and Monday as well. Give us two options.

    Alright, on to week 2.

    Friday night: TCU @ SMU. This is the only option. Probably not a close game, but check the score to see. Wouldn't want to miss it if the ponies win.

    Sat morning: Slim pickin's this week. Maybe UCLA @ Oklahoma? Maybe Arizona @ Houston? Duke @ Northwestern? I guess we just check the scoreboard and tune in to whatever's closest. Or, do your chores in the morning.

    Sat early afternoon:

    UGA @ South Carolina. Early conference games are good.
    CU @ Nebraska. Nebraska's warm up game got rained out, and now they have to start with an old rival.

    Mid afternoon: Iowa State @ Iowa. Rivalry!

    Sat evening:

    Clemson @ Texas A&M. Clemson seems to have an easy path to the playoff. A&M is one of the few chances to stop them.
    Utah @ NIU. The road game nobody wanted!
    Penn St @ Pitt. Rivalry!

    Sat night:

    USC @ Stanford. The game of the day. Winner is still a playoff hopeful.

    Late game:

    Michigan State @ Arizona State. Devils impressed vs San Antonio. Spartans did not impress vs Aggies. This could be a good game.

    I know that Arizona doesn't have a whole lot. 38-0 early (REALLY EARLY) in the 3rd Quarter.

    Where is Rich Rod now? I bet he's amused.

    The South is looking fairly weak: UCLA and Arizona have laid turds out of the block, but Colorado appears better than people thought. We don't know much about ASU and USC is USC. Too bad the schedule makers cursed us this year.

    I hope we can actually get a couple of comfortable conference wins this season. Those have been so rare.

    The buffs beat the huskers in Lincoln! They could be tough.

    That was huge. Way to go Buffs!

    That win may be second only to Coach Mac's ability to sweep scandals under the rug

    Week 3. Not exactly stuffed with prime match ups, but there are definitely some gems!

    There are games W, Th, and F nights, but there's nothing interesting.

    Sat morning isn't great either.

    Certainly OU @ Iowa St if it stays close.
    FSU @ Syracuse is more interesting than anyone would have guessed 2 weeks ago. Interesting like a train wreck.
    Rutgers @ Kansas duel for the honor of being the worst P5 program.

    Sat afternoon makes up for it, though.

    LSU @ Auburn is the game of the week.
    Boise St @ Okie State at the same time.

    Sat evening:

    Bama @ Ole Miss. Watch until it gets out of hand (or until the Ohio State/TCU kickoff).
    Ohio State @ TCU. Huge chance for the Frogs.
    USC @ Texas. Hopes for a big game were probably huge when this was scheduled. It's lost some luster with each team at an unimpressive 1-1.

    Sat night:

    UW @ Utah! Will Utah ever stop being the "tough out" and start winning these games? Great way to end the day.

    Thanks. Two things:

    1. Curse the God the created time zones.
    2. Utah has already started winning "these games." Oregon in 2015? USC in 2016? Stanford every time we play them? UW has had our number (I think it is because their style of play is similar to ours, just with better athletes) but that is separate from the argument that Utah is always in games against top ten teams but never pulls them out.

    Had a ward party tonight. Everyone wanted to make sure I knew that BYU beat Wisconsin today.

    It depends on how Wisconsin does the rest of the way, but that game might end up being BYU's biggest win since the Edwards era.

    You missed the best game of the day. BYU won in a slug fest at Wisconsin on ABC. But I know you all watched and you are now all just hoping Utah actually shows up tonight. Not sure I’ll Stay up and watch the game, but maybe I will. Utah should win and it could be a fun game.

    Bye week still has some good football for us all.

    Friday Night Lights:

    Undercard: FAU vs UCF. Knights defending their title.
    Main event: Wazzu @ USC. It's late, but we get to scout our next opponent AND root against a division rival.

    Sat morning:
    UGa @ Mizzou and Nebraska @ Michigan. Maybe one of them surprises and ends up close.

    Sat afternoon:

    A&M @ Bama is the big one for this time slot. Huge opportunity for Jimbo.
    KState @ West VA. Mountaineers best chance for someone other than Oklahoma to win the Big12?
    NIU @ FSU has some interest for us Utah fans now.
    Arizona @ Oregon St. Go Beavs!
    Mississippi @ Kentucky. Both are still 3-0.

    Sat evening

    Game of the day: Stanford @ Oregon.
    ASU @ UW. Go Huskies.
