    [​IMG]Three sets of games today, with two in the early afternoon, three in the mid-afternoon, and five tonight. I'm blogging from my couch in Dallas today, but I'll have plenty of updates and analysis throughout the day before I head to Lubbock for Texas Tech and SMU in the morning.

    Since I bet you all didn't bookmark this post, here's a quick refresher, beginning with a pair of neutral-site games to kick us off (all times ET):


    Missouri vs. Illinois in St. Louis (12:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net):
    • Missouri is looking for a clean sweep of the Illini in the final game of most recent run of the rivalry, a four-year streak beginning in 2007.
    • The Tigers will be without starting running back Derrick Washington, who was "permanently suspended" earlier this week.
    • Receiver Jerrell Jackson is expected to play after suffering a broken bone in his wrist just two weeks ago.
    What to watch: Does receiver T.J. Moe stake an early claim as Blaine Gabbert's No. 1 target?

    Colorado vs. Colorado State in Denver (2 p.m., The Mtn.):
    • Colorado lost last year's game, but hasn't lost consecutive games to the Rams since 1999-2000. The schools have split the past four games under Dan Hawkins.
    • Colorado State will be starting true freshman Pete Thomas at quarterback.
    • Scotty McKnight has caught a pass in 37 consecutive games entering the season.
    What to watch: Does the offensive line find three players to fill the holes around All-Big 12 talent Nate Solder and Ryan Miller after giving up 43 sacks in 2009?
