Week 9 College Football TV Viewing Schedule: Failure to plan is planning to fail

Somehow every good game got stacked on top of each other today. Not great, Bob.

OHIO STATE AT PENN STATE

Here’s the problem with today’s TV schedule. Every game you really want to see is going off in the 3:30 window. I guess it’s because college football is being nice to MLB and not trying to counterprogram the World Series. But it means you have to have about seven screens to keep up with the best games of the week.

Of course, this won’t matter because you’ll be in the stands at the USF game, right? RIGHT? Right.

Here’s the entire schedule:

College Football Week 9 TV Schedule

12:00 p.m. While you are tailgating for the USF game, Oklahoma State-West Virginia is your best call. A few years ago, or even like a month ago, I would have predicted about 130 combined points. Now, not so much. These two teams are pretty committed to the run now. The winner might actually score under 30 here. This isn’t your older brother’s Big XII anymore.

3:30 p.m. Of course you’re watching the USF game, but if you get bored, there are some OPTIONS. Penn State and Ohio State play this week’s headliner. NC State probably gets their hopes and dreams wrecked by Notre Dame. And TCU has to go to the alternate dimension of Ames and played a ranked Iowa State. Yes! A ranked Iowa State! I’m just as surprised as you!

7:00 p.m. I’m not really a baseball guy, but this has been a pretty decent World Series so far. If you want to watch that instead of the pretty lame evening slate, or if you’d rather see the Lightning crush some more fools, I wouldn’t blame you. If you stick with football, Georgia Tech-Clemson or FIRE BUTCH JONES-Kentucky are your best options.

10:00 p.m. PAC 12 AFTER DARK ALERT. RANKED TEAMS PLAYING AWAY GAMES IN ARIZONA. YOU KNOW THE DRILL.
