Week 6 College Football Viewing Guide

What should you be watching this weekend when you're not watching Auburn vs LSU?

Butch Dill
Well, it sure looks like just another boring weekend in college football, doesn't it?  I mean, it's not like there's any big games to be played, are there?

Wait... There are SIX top 25 match-ups!?!? FOUR of them are TOP 15!?!?  THREE OF THOSE ALONE ARE IN THE SEC WEST!?!?!?!?

Ok, so there's a lot going on in college football, this weekend. It begins with an excellent late game tonight as Arizona takes on Oregon. Prepare for points. Lots of points. Saturday begins with Texas A&M playing at Mississippi State in the "Who saw this being a Top 15 Match-up a few years back?" game of the week. #14 Stanford travels to #9 Notre Dame for a 3:30 NBC game if you're in to that sort of thing. I think I'd have to be truly desperate to watch that, personally.

Thankfully, Alabama plays at Ole Miss in the second of the SEC West's ridiculous slate of Top 15 match-ups at the same time. And if you're into another Top 25 match-up to watch during commercials, #4 Oklahoma travels to #25 TCU for a 3:30 game, as well.

Auburn vs LSU kicks off at 7pm EST, 6pm local, but if you're not lucky enough to be in Jordan-Hare, there is also the #19 Nebraska at #10 Michigan State an hour later.

Sooo... yeah, busy weekend! I'll be in my usual seats of Section 102 at Jordan-Hare Stadium, so I'll miss a good bit of it. It's going to be a fun Saturday, that's for sure!
