Well, this is an odd week with the quality of match-ups, maybe the worst since the mid-late September one before conference seasons get into full swing. Assuming because of rivalries next week and the Big 12 having a CCG again. If NU hadn’t fallen so far, there might be another.
Michigan at Wisconsin leads off at noon in the biggest game. How isn’t this a 3:30? I believe Big Ten has a rule about both teams needing to agree to it come a point in November, so don’t see any way Michigan would agree to that. I have to pull for the Wolverines to keep my Lions chances at just chaos, as opposed to Armageddon. Figuring I will end up having to hope for the latter.’
UCF comes north to play Temple. But it is a noon game and temps are supposed to hit over 50, so the potential fun of seeing reaction to some cold weather won’t be there.
Miami has another game at home. No shocker this year. With FSU’s fall, their away schedule has been ridiculously easy.
TCU goes to TT. In a normal year, this might be one to keep an eye on, but I saw an article about Tech’s struggles and not expecting much here. My understanding is TCU is in CCG if they win out.
WVU has Texas at home and Mojo has suffered through the Horns offensive struggles. The Eers still have a chance at CCG, but not sure what combos they need for it to happen besides beating OU in Norman next week. Assuming if that is only upset remaining in Big 12, that OU and TCU would still square off in CCG as two-loss teams.
Illinois at tOSU and OU at KU at 3:30. Are you kidding me? Then next week, they put Miami on at noon when they hit the road in the north on Friday.
At night, the Pac=12 has USC=.UCLA with the Trojans looking for the CCG bid and a very outside opportunity at invite.
There is also the Cal-Stanford game. The Cardinal should end up in the CCG if the likely favorites win out. With a couple breaks, I become a huge Cardinal fan over the next few weeks.
