    (All times Mountain)

    4pm - #21 Texas A&M @ #9 South Carolina (SECN)
    5pm - Wake Forest @ UL-Monroe (ESPNU)
    5pm - E Illinois @ Minnesota (BTN)
    5pm - Howard @ Akron (ESPN3)
    5pm - Presbyterian @ N Illinois (ESPN3)
    5pm - Chattanooga @ C Michigan (ESPN3)
    5:30pm - Idaho State @ Utah (PACN)
    6pm - Cal Poly @ NM State (ESPN3)
    6pm - Boise State @ #18 Ole Miss (ESPN)
    6pm - Tulane @ Tulsa (CBSSN)
    6:15pm - Temple @ Vanderbilt (SECN)
    8pm - Rutgers @ Washington State (FS1)
    8pm - North Dakota @ San Jose State (ESPN3)
    8:30pm - Weber State @ #19 Arizona State (PACN)

    Tonight is a good illustration of why the SEC gets the hype it does. Beyond the national championships, they work hard to manipulate the conference schedule to give the networks great programming every week.

    Harsin at Boise State is a 50/50 proposition and I'm in the "show me" mode there. They had to replace a lot of coaches....


    I think we will learn a lot more about WSU tonight vs Rutgers than we will learn about ASU.
    ASU should dominate Weber St and if they struggle at all it will be because they didn't take them seriously and didn't get up mentally. I hope they blow everyone out and come to Boulder brimming with confidence.

    They schedule a lot of crappy games but this mix them in well throughout the season. Wouldn't be opposed to the PAC doing that.

    I hate early season top 25 matchups.
    to me, no team has really done anything yet to even BE ranked.

    #21 vs #9....big deal...they're both 0-0.

    However, if 21 beats 9, fans go crazy and ESPN calls upset.
    If 9 beats 21, eveybdoy says it's the way it should be.

    I wish rankings didn't exist until week 2 or 3.

    Yea that is great. Way too many teams are playing games in NFL stadiums with a boring, sterile atmosphere. There's a few exceptions that work like the early season games in Atlanta and Jerry's World, and of course Georgia-Florida, but that's about it.

    I was giddy setting all of the reminders for tonight's games. I'll watch anything this time of year. I predict that Wazzu struggles vs. Rutgers, Utah does not cover the spread (-41), and Arizona State does (-45 1/2).

    Not a good sign if Wazzu struggles with a pretty bad Rutgers side playing a very late game

    If aTm can keep playing defense like that last series, they're going to have a big year.

    First ad I see on the SEC Network - Hardees flogging their bologna and Velveeta sandwich. Doesn't get anymore SEC than that.

    SEC Defense seems to be a thing of the past. Looks like WAC defense.

    So far, the only thing keeping the Cocks in this one is Spurrier's play calling finding some big plays.

    300 passing yards in one half against a supposed top 10 opponent on the road. Not a bad start.

    Yeah.

    Those kind of numbers point to bad defense, too. Spurrier may not have a happy year.

    I was just going to post that their DL doesn't look as stout as it did the past few seasons.
