Every September, there is a weekly slate of games that is just refried ass. Welcome to said Saturday.
Georgia at Missouri (Noon, ESPN)
Both of these teams are undefeated, but only one is any good, and maybe not even one (thus the slight opportunity for a trap game).
Notre Dame at Wake Forest (Noon, ABC)
The Irish’ tour of various Sisters of the Poor continues in Winston-Salem this week. Another unimpressive win by less than a TD? Probably.
Texas A&M at Alabama (3:30, CBS)
Those glasses that Jimbo wears to make himself look less stupid? Ain’t gonna help today. CBS finally abandons UT/FL in its traditional slot, and it’s for this flaming bag of shit.
Clemson at Georgia Tech (3:30, ABC)
Hey looky-loo, a legitimate trap game! The Bees have been bad, but they can score (in a way your dead great grandpappy would approve of, except for all the blacks), and Son of Clem has a tendency to get flustered down Atlanta way. As always, I will be hoping that Dabo! dies.
South Cakalaky at Vanderbilt (4:00, SECN)
When in doubt, watch Vandy for the yuk-yuks. Today is that kind of day.
TCU at Texas (4:30, Fox)
Perhaps the only fixture of the day that I am legitimately looking forward to. Will Bloodeyes be all emotionally let down after shitting themselves against tOSU? Or will they be out for steer blood? Let’s hope for the latter, but I very much fear the former.
Mississippi State at Kentucky (7:00, ESPN2)
This’un is fairly interesting, too, with Kenfucky returning home heroes after breaking a 31 (or was it 32?) game losing streak in the series – dating back to Tim Fucking Couch – in Gainesville. Note to Big Blue – don’t be all reveling, because Cowbells are most definitely NAWT a perpetually overrated SEC East side.
Texas Tech at Oklahoma State (7:00, FS1)
You want points? Weird fetishes? Oh, does Guns Up!! and the BDSM State locals have a treat in store for y’all.
Stanford at Oregon (8:00, ABC)
Seriously, this is where the GameDay crew went. Does anybody really goddamned care about this? Is Oh-ray-GAWNE even ranked? /looks it up, they’s #20
Arizona State at Washington (10:30, ESPN)
Yet again, your tweaker fixture involves Herm Edwards. Draw your own conclusions. Also, 17.5 is WAY too big a spread here, as U-Dub isn’t much account neither, especially on offense.
