12:00 p.m. Oklahoma State and Texas is probably the best bet here. The Longhorns had more juice than expected against Oklahoma last week, but is Sam Ehlinger really that good, or were they just up for a rivalry game? Louisville-Florida State is another good choice, although it ranks very high in the “this game looked so much better before the season” category.

3:30 p.m. It really doesn’t matter if USF or C. drop a game before their big Black Friday matchup because the rest of the division is so trash. But there’s at least a decent chance Navy takes down the Knights in Annapolis, where they are very hard to beat. Syracuse-Miami might be interesting too, with the Orange coming off their upset of Clemson and the Hurricanes looking like they might have peaked a little too soon. Oklahoma-Kansas State may also be enjoyable, if only because Bill Snyder is old enough to be Lincoln Riley’s grandfather.

7:00 p.m. USF-Tulane, obviously. If you need something to flip to during commercials, there’s Michigan-Penn State and USC-Notre Dame to tempt you. Don’t watch Alabama-Tennessee. I’m warning you.

10:30 p.m. Not much to choose from in late night, just Colorado-Washington State or a couple Mountain West games. Can San Diego State rebound from last week’s whipping by Boise State? Can Boise build on last week’s whipping of San Diego State against Wyoming?
