EARLY GAMES OPEN THREAD

The Game.

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The early slate for the Saturday of Rivalry Week doesn't offer much, Big Ten-wise -- the Battle for the Old Oaken Bucket (and bowl eligibility for IU) between Indiana and Purdue, a "no really, this is a conference game" tilt between Maryland and Rutgers... oh, and a little something called Michigan-Ohio State.  This game lost a bit of its luster after Ohio State's stunning loss a week ago -- it's no longer a pure play-in game for the Big Ten Championship Game -- but it's still Ohio State-Michigan.  There's still enough bad blood here to create another Great Lake, not to mention Harbaugh vs Tressel, and the fascinating question of how Ohio State will rebound after what happened a week ago.

Outside the Big Ten, there's Clemson's own quest at 12-0, Virginia Tech's quest to get bowl eligible for Frank Beamer, and the classic rivalry between Iowa State and West Virginia.  Fun times for all, no doubt.
