The Noon window is filled with hot garbage, and deserves no preview. Let us resume drying out with midday, shall we?
LSU at Auburn (3:30, CBS)
I am still not sure exactly who Aubie is just yet (that U-Dub win was hardly convincing), and today will be quite demonstrative. 10 points is a pretty big spread, though Jordan-Hare is muy dificil as far as road venues go. Bayou Bengals catch a break that it’s not under the lights.
BYU at Wisconsin (3:30, ABC)
So. Many. White ppl. I hope they bought sunscreen by the 5-gallon drum.
Boise State at Oklahoma State (3:30, ESPN)
Well, spank me ’till it hurts! An entertaining cross-conference tilt where the first team to 50 just might win. BDSM State stands between us all and an endless procession of does Boise belong in teh playoffs? windbaggery.
Duke at Baylor (3:30, FS1)
Not too much raping!!
Houston at Texas Tech (4:15, Fox)
JV Yoooooouston is feeling really good about itself, and that probably won’t work out so good for them. Look for Guns Up!! to stand they ground.
Alabama at Ole Miss (7:00, ESPN)
A good litmus test as to exactly how scary Roll Damn Tide is gonna be this season. Johnny Reb has been their Bogey Side since forever, and has enough pieces to cause trouble if Bama isn’t at peak performance level. But that Reb defense? Let’s just say it can be exploited a wee bit.
Ohio State at TCU (8:00, ABC)
Probably the match of the day, though I have a feeling it will disappoint. Hope not. Blood FOAR the Bloodeyes’ GOD, and all that.
Arizona State at San Diego State (10:30, CBSSN)
Co-ed Bowl 2: Electric Boogaloo features a ranked Sparky squadron. Go ahead, enjoy, this shall be the only week anyone ever says that about Herm’s charges.
