If you have a weak stomach, I advise you avoid ABC around 7pm CT at all costs Saturday night.

Texas A&M v Alabama
Alabama looks to remain #1 Saturday and avoid the fate Texas A&M faced last week as they host the same Mississippi State team that took down the Aggies.

Well, it’s Thursday and we find ourselves four games deep into the college football week. Don’t tell me you missed out on Eastern Michigan taking down Ball State or #21 Western Michigan beating Kent State on Tuesday night because there was something else going on (like, oh I dunno, an election or something). There’s no way that would happen two weeks in a row (cough, World Series, cough cough). If you happened to miss those, I’m sure you caught the Bowling Green/Akron showdown or Toledo’s 7-point win over Northern Illinois last night. No? Well, good news! There’s still one MAC matchup to be played this week and it happens to actually be on a Saturday! Talk about throwing people a curve ball.

If the MACtion doesn’t get you hyped for the weekend’s slate of games, lucky for you there will be some alternate viewing options. Tonight, we get #17 UNC at Duke on ESPN at 6:30pm CT. At 8:30 over on FS1 you can catch #15 Utah at Arizona State. Tomorrow the only game is BC at #18 Florida State. That one kicks off at 6:30 CT on ESPN2.

Saturday’s slate of games gets started at 11am (sorry, no random Notre Dame game played in a strange location at 10:30 this week) with a slew of games. Baylor at #11 Oklahoma will be mirrored on ABC/ESPN2 with #10 Penn State at Indiana. On ESPN, you’ve got Mississippi State at #1 Alabama. CBS has South Carolina at Florida. FSI brings you #16 West Virgina at Texas. And the matchup we’ve all been waiting for on BTN: 2-7 Rutgers at 2-7 Michigan State. Someone is leaving with a Big Ten win for the first time this year.

The 2:30 timeslot has Notre Dame hosting Army on NBC (that’s more like it). On CBS you can catch #9 Auburn at Georgia. ABC has Pitt at #2 Clemson. Georgia Tech is at #14 Virginia Tech in what I can only assume with be a technical knockout (sorry, had to) on ESPNU. Texas Tech is at #13 OK State on FS1. #5 Ohio State will try to score 1000 on Maryland on ESPN. And Illinois is at #7 Wisconsin on ESPN2. No BTN games for the 2:30 timeslot.

Washington v California

The evening games kick off at 6pm CT with #24 LSU at #25 Arkansas on ESPN. Also at 6 you can catch Lamar Jackson score 20+ TDs as #6 Louisville hosts Wake Forest. At 6:30, #8 Texas A&M hosts Ole Miss on the SEC Network. FOX has #20 USC at #4 Washington at the same time. And the BTN has Minnesota at #19 Nebraska.

It appears there are no games in the primetime slot. Nothing at all worth watching at 7pm CT. All the networks have kickoffs at 6:30 except ABC and I can’t imagine why anyone would want to witness the public humiliation that will be taking place there as Iowa hosts #3 Michigan. Seriously, save yourselves and just hit up Netflix. You will feel better in the morning.

There are a bunch of late games. Most notably there’s #12 Colorado at Arizona on FS1 at 9pm CT. ESPN has Cal at #23 Washington State at 9:30. There are also a couple other games floating around on ESPN2 and ESPNU if you need some commercial filler.

Thankfully, I won’t be around Saturday evening to witness the nightmare on Melrose. Despite my frustration and disappointment at the beginning of the season upon learning I had a wedding November 12th, I’m incredibly grateful my cousin isn’t from and didn’t go to Iowa (or Michigan). Saturday I’ll be enjoying whatever they choose to serve at the wedding. Gimme six Schlitzes... ah whatever’s free! Shout out to Nathan and Morgan. Congrats in advance on the big day and thank you for saving me from what would have undoubtedly been a night of self mutilation.

As always, you can find EVERY game on the docket for the weekend below. Reminder of the usual disclaimer, this table is created by the SB Nation crew, not us, so the times listed below are EASTERN. Enjoy.
