For the third week in a row, the Iowa game doesn't kick off until mid-afternoon, which means there's plenty of time for you to do a few chores, pay attention to your family, or take a nap. Or you could watch the early games with us, too. That sounds like a pretty good idea. The early slate:
Cal at #12 Ohio State (ABC)
Western Michigan at Minnesota (BTN)
Arkansas State at Nebraska (ESPN2)
Charleston Southern at Illinois (BTN)
Eastern Michigan at Purdue (BTN)
Wake Forest at #5 Florida State (ESPN)
#13 Virginia Tech at Pitt (ESPNU)
#16 TCU at Kansas (FX)
ULL at Oklahoma State (FSN)
The usual open thread rules apply: no porn, no religion, no politics, no slurs, no links to illegal online streams, etc. Just don't be a dick, alright?
There's no shortage of garbage out there on the Week 3 schedule, which starts slow but builds momentum throughout the day, reaching a crescendo with a compelling slate of evening games, including Florida at Tennessee, USC at Stanford, Notre Dame at Michigan State, and Texas at Ole Miss. Oh, and hello rivalry: BYU and Utah kick off the hate in 2012.
After the jump are your Week 3 TV listings, point spreads, and game day links for today's college football action. Fancy all-day preview from the mothership (and Peter Bean) after the jump.

College Football Rootability attempts to sort out the most likable teams in the weekend's given matchups for the uninvested fan. It makes little sense, but neither does college football. And we love it so.
Loving USC to roll Stanford tonight? Are you willing to lay 8.5 points with a road team? Before you put money down, compare point spreads and game totals from online and Vegas-based sports books, updating live in real time.
