Yes, I have convinced my dumbass self this is an actual possibility.  In the range of 30%.  SIGH.

Michigan at Michigan State (Noon, Fox)

We will always have that punt oopsie-doodle game.  Remember?  You’ll see that replay maybe 20 times during the broadcast.  Sparty was good last week, so don’t expect a repeat.

Oklahoma at TCU (Noon, ABC)

Bloodeyes have had a rather bad season, but taking down Boomer Sooner would make everything all better.  The Big Twaaaalllllve is effectively out of the playoff conversation, so they might as well entertain us with anarchy.

Illinois at Wisconsin (Noon, FS1)

Noted because I bet on the Fightin’ Snowflakes.  $40 ATS (+24.5), $10 ML (+1450).

NC State at Clemson (3:30, ESPN)

DABO! must be stopped.  For Notre Dame and tOSU are making the playoffs, without question.  Wouldn’t it be nice for someone other than Roll Damn Tide to be the good guy?  This is Ryan Finley’s moment, and he’s very ready for it.  Question is whether NC State’s defense can put him in position to win the game late.  I think they can – the wolves do physical, and Cuse showed how much the Tiggs don’t like being punched in the mouth.  Definitely the game of the day, and the rest of the window is vile shite.

Mississippi State at LSU (7:00, ESPN)

I have a sneaking suspicion the Bayou Bengals could be a bit letdown emotionally.  But it’s under the lights in their Death Valley, and I am wary to bet on this version of Cowbells.  But interested to see how it plays out.

Oregon at Washington State (7:30, Fox)

I really don’t think either of these sides are very good, but Wazzu has the GameDay hype adrenaline going for them, and Quack Attack is coming off a big win, and I love fading teams like that (especially ones that ain’t so hot).

Vanderbilt at Kentucky (7:30, SECN)

For some reason, I am drawn to this matchup.  Perhaps an early Bananacakes warning system is at hand?

Arizona at UCLA (10:30, ESPN2)

It’s a sad excuse for a tweaker matchup, but this slate is super light.  At least there’s the White Supremacy Bowl hook!

Clemson isn’t going to get any respect beating up on these FCS schools.

How about Alabama beating that FCS…

(turns off camera) What? They were an SEC school as well. Huh, wow.

NC State is exactly who I thought they were.
Only a little bit worse.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Holy shit, we scored.
It only took 45 minutes of game time.

Wooooo!!!!!

I am really looking forward to watching football tomorrow because I don’t have to worry about the Raiders humiliating themselves and fucking up my day.

Finally, someone on Penn State not named Sandusky is penalized for targeting.

If you are under 40 and watch a prime-time CBS show un-ironically, you might be a redneck.

But I thought in CFB if you fair catch on a kickoff inside the 25, it goes to the 25.

Tennessee’s 2nd Half just had the worst start by anyone. Ever.

If you google ‘the opposite of compelling’ it sends you to a live stream of Penn State/Indiana.

Now that everyone is doing the Philly Special, its only a matter of time before a QB gets destroyed running the route.

I bet she likes getting caught in the rain as well.

After a few of those who can tell if it is raining?

Well if Alabama wasn’t aiming for 100 points before, they are now.

Time for a human sacrifice on the sidelines of Bama.

Too bad Saban doesn’t qualify.

Boy, I’m out of shape.
