Week four of the college football season is upon us! It begins tonight with a rousing game between Cincinnati and Memphis!
Hey, there's the Tuberville factor, right? And Memphis is kinda good, right now. If Memphis gets past this game, they may even become a lock for the "Group of 5" slot in the New Years Day games. Friday's slate isn't terribly better. There's Boise State at Virginia at 8pm EST, then #21 Stanford (didn't they lose to Northwestern?) at Oregon State.
The noon slate on Saturday isn't terribly exciting, though it will be interesting just to see LSU play at the Carrier Dome in New York. #22 BYU at Michigan could be intriguing, as well. If you're a true glutton for punishment, you'll choose to watch Kansas at Rutgers, though.
The 3:30 games will have Western Michigan at Ohio State. PJ Fleck's boat hasn't been rowing well so far this season, so that should be an easy game for the Buckeyes. CBS chose Tennessee at Florida for their prime afternoon spot. There's a good chance Tennessee ends their losing streak to the Gators in that one. Louisiana-Monroe takes on Alabama at 4pm on the SEC Network, but I don't think you can look for a 2007 repeat.
One of the more intriguing match-ups may be #3 TCU at Texas Tech at 4:45 on Fox. The Red Raiders are fresh off a beating of Arkansas and hoping to upset the Horned Frogs.
Speaking of Arkansas, they "host" Texas A&M in Arlington (are we not calling it "North Texas," anymore?) at 7pm. We all know you're going to be watch Auburn host Mississippi State at 7:30 on ESPN2, though.
There are only two games between ranked opponents, this weekend. Both are night games. The first is #9 UCLA at #16 Arizona at 8pm on ABC. The second one is #18 Utah at #13 Oregon on Fox. The night will conclude with #Pac12AfterDark when #19 USC takes on Arizona State at 10:30pm on ESPN.
