College football TV schedule: Week 3 viewing guide

"Hey girl, let's spread the field." - Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Did you know that non-SEC teams still bother fielding football teams? Strange, but true.

There are quite a few interesting games this weekend, but most of them involve SEC teams. Let's scrape the barrel's bottom together and see what's worth watching outside of the nation's greatest conference. All times listed are Central.

Minor-league (non-SEC) games

TCU @ Texas Tech: Thursday, 6:30 p.m., ESPN

Oh, hello there, ladies. We didn't see you standing there. We at CaM know that you have needs. Carnal needs. You know who's always there to fulfill your needs? Kliff Kingsbury, that's who. "Guns up!" isn't just the battle cry of Texas Tech students; it's also the nickname that every satisfied girlfriend has bestowed upon Coach Kingsbury. It's supposed to be around 90 degrees at kickoff. Do you think he will take his shirt off? He'll probably take his shirt off.

Troy @ Arkansas State: Thursday, 6:30 p.m., ESPNU

What's that? Your loins aren't quivering at the thought of Kingsbury? Then flip on over to the Troy "Don't Call Me State" game. The finest football team in Pike County will travel to face a Red Wolves team still smarting from the second spurning from Gus Malzahn in less than a year. It'll be interesting to see if Arkansas State's offense looks as potent as it did in Week 1, or if the Trojans will be able to penetrate the backfield all night long.

Air Force @ Boise State: Friday, 7 p.m., ESPN

If you are ugly single and don't have anything better to do with your Friday night, ESPN is offering you a brief respite from your hilariously nonexistent social life. Boise was drilled by Washington to begin its season, but rebounded nicely against Auburn Tiger dopplegangers UT-Martin. Air Force will probably lose this football game, but the Falcons can fly jets and junk after the game. Advantage: Air Force.

Georgia Tech @ Duke: Saturday, 2:30 p.m., ESPNU

The Yellow Jackets will be looking for their 10th consecutive "Math Bowl" victory over Duke on Saturday. There's really no reason for me to mention this game, except to say that REGGIE BALL IS A TERRIBLE HUMAN BEING AND I WISH GENERALLY NEGATIVE THINGS FOR HIM and also that NO I'M DEFINITELY NOT STILL BITTER ABOUT THE UNDERACHIEVING 2003 AUBURN TEAM.

Lamar @ Oklahoma State: Saturday, 6:30 p.m., Local FSN Affiliates

By the time this game airs, the Oklahoma State community will have had a five-part nuclear bomb of bad press dropped on its collective 5-gallon hat. While the initial reports seem damning, we would do well to consider the source of the stories. From allegations of paying players to accusations of recruiting hostesses prostituting themselves, Auburn fans should note that this story is eerily familiar and maybe cut the Cowboys some slack until more facts emerge. Even the knee jerk reactions from the fan base rings a bell. Okie State, we feel your pain, bruh.

Check back on Friday to see the previews of all the SEC games this weekend.
