    FRIDAY
    9:00 - Colorado State @ Boise State, ESPN2
    10:00 - Air Force @ UNLV, CBSSN

    12:20 - North Carolina @ Syracuse, ACC/ESPN
    12:30 - Virginia @ Duke, ACC/ESPN

    7:30 - #2 Ohio State @ Purdue, ABC

    10:30 - Arizona @ UCLA, ESPN2 (Pac12 After Dark - ought to keep the lights switched off)

    That is not the best slate of games, is it? I think NC State needs to show up at Death Valley for this week to have a chance at being really interesting.

    Oregon v Washington State might be good. I'm a bit intrigued by Maryland v Iowa. The rest? Oof.

    I just watched 15 minutes of the Michigan/Michigan State game and decided that was enough. Sloppy game all the way around.

    Watching UM v MSU. Kickoff to the 9yard line. Fair catch. Ball spotted at the 25. New rule?

    Yes. We are well on the way to no more kickoffs.

    Bama 42 at halftime, at Tenn

    With all the usual caveats about 1 game being a crapshoot ...

    Purdue just went 15 plays 98 yards in 7 minutes to go up 7-0 over tOSU. Go Boilers.

    How is LSU able to get a 2nd helmet but the Pats can't find a way to wear Pat Patriot?

    Purdue up big on Ohio puts BC's loss to Purdue in perspective.

    Not sure I'd call 15 points with over a quarter left "big" in today's game, but your point stands.

    That said, I refuse to believe that Urban and OSU are dead and gone until they are actually dead and gone. Purdue really, really needs another score before they can be comfortable. Ohio State always finds a way.

    So it may come down to Ohio State vs Michigan. Which means OSU will be fine.

    I watched a little of Michigan today. Almost looks like they have a clue on offense. Maybe one clue. Great defense.

    Don't think I've ever seen an OSU defense get gashed like this over and over again. Amazing stuff. So happy right now.

    Purdue has owned this game. Their reemergence would strengthen the Big Ten, even if it weakens the playoff situation.

    It’s funny but is a bit of s slap in the face to your own team. “You can’t actually be THAT good if you’re losing to us, we suck!”

    A fan on top of a guy's shoulders was nearly caught on camera removing her top.

    A minute later, the FOX cameras focus on a huge sign that says: I WANT A MUSTACHE RIDE

    That story on the Purdue former student/fan with terminal cancer predicting they would beat tOSU was touching but then it happens. That's why sports is the best thing on earth, people.

    Not that UCF had any real chance of making the playoff anyway, but Missouri defeating Memphis 65-33 hammers that reality home pretty forcefully.

    I know it's not P5 football, but the end of the ODU-WUKU game yesterday was bonkers. ODU has won just 1 game all season, against Virginia Tech.

    Yesterday they score with like 10 seconds left to tie game at 34-34, then:

    WKU: run to set up Hail Mary with 2 seconds left.
    WKU: Hail Mary incomplete, but ODU called for roughing passer, WKU gets 1 untimed down.
    WKU: misses 57 yard FG, but ODU is called for offsides, WKU gets 5 yards, and another untimed down.
    WKU: misses 52 yard FG, ODU returns it to WKU 14, WKU called for face mask, ODU gets 1 untimed down.
    ODU: 23 yard FG to win on the 3rd untimed down.
