This should be a great day to ignore house projects/yard work as well as the telephone.
If you live in North Texas you have one of five games to possibly attend.
If you're too lazy to leave your couch, and there is no shame in that, there are games aplenty on the television machine.
No. 1 Alabama at No. 19 South Carolina, 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS
How many times does Verne Lundquist say "Oh boy" to try to cover up a gaffe?
I keep thinking the Tide will lose, I just don't see it being today.
No. 11 Arkansas vs. Texas A&M, 2:30 p.m. CT, ABC
Mike Sherman needs this more than Bobby Petrino.
This will be a game whereas last season's version of this was not.
No. 12 LSU at No. 14 Florida, 6:30 p.m. CT, ESPN
This should be a good game, but won't. Florida pulls away from an LSU team that can't get out of its own way. Both teams are talented and it should be a fun game of big plays, and self-inflicted pain.
No. 23 Florida State at No. 13 Miami, 7 p.m. CT, ABC
This game is slowly regaining national relevance. Neither team is nearly as dominant as they were in the '90s, but this usually features a half dozen of future NFL players doing crazy junk on the field.
No. 17 Michigan State at No. 18 Michigan, 2:30 p.m. CT, ABC
MSU's coach recently had a heart attack and yet he's going to coach from the booth. Dude, it's a football game. Stay at home and play Halo. MU's Denard Robinson is the most exciting player in college football since VY was killing it in Austin. A game where Keith Jackson needs to come out of retirement.
Colorado at No. 24 Missouri, 6 p.m. CT (no TV)
Worth mentioning because this is the 20-year anniversary of the infamous "Fifth down game" that help give CU a national title.
