Football, football, come and get yer football.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Normalcy will be restored next week and Iowa will be back to 11 AM starts (for good or ill), but for now we have a third straight week where Iowa has a later start.  So we have time to kill.  Luckily, there's football to be watched.  NOTE: I make no guarantees about the quality of said football.

The highlight among Big Ten action looks to be BYU-Michigan -- do the Cougars have another miracle finish (and Big Ten upset) in them?  Kansas-Rutgers might be perversely entertaining and Bowling Green-Purdue should be good if you like points... lots and lots of points. The non-B1G action doesn't offer much more intrigue, although LSU-Syracuse could provide some Weird Football (or just another chance for Leonard Fournette to make college defenders look very foolish) and Georgia Tech-Duke might be pretty good.
