EVENING GAMES OPEN THREAD

Football after dark.

The night shift this week isn't quite as good -- on paper -- as the afternoon slate of games, especially since Florida lost their QB to a PED suspension earlier this week.  The Big Ten attraction is Ohio State (clad in all-black) hosting Penn State and... maybe that will be good?  Ohio State has allowed worse opponents than Penn State to keep games close this year and Penn State has improved since their Week 1 humiliation versus Temple.  On the other hand, maybe the Ohio State pass rush just decides to take over and make Hackenberg's life hell, which likely turns the game into a total rout.

Outside of the Big Ten, LSU-Florida is worth a peek, if only to see what Leonard Fournette does this week.  Florida is likely the best defense he's faced all year, so this might be the best test yet of his Heisman mettle.  Meanwhile, if you like to watch things burn, TCU-Iowa State is on ESPN2.  Notre Dame-USC routinely produces entertaining games, although Missouri versus a despondent Georgia team seems like stay-away material.  The Pac 12 provides the late night action, with Arizona State-Utah being the most intriguing game and Oregon-Washington providing yet more opportunity for the Pac 12's also rans to take their pound of flesh from the Ducks after years of getting pummeled.
