Let’s take a look at what’s on the docket this weekend, besides Iowa/Iowa State.

Wow, what a first weekend of college football. I’ll be honest, I feel like I came down off of a sugar or caffeine high or something. Starting last Thursday, we had football for 5 days straight. Then nothing. Not a damn game until Friday. And let’s be honest with ourselves here, we peaked too soon. The slate this weekend isn’t nearly as appetizing as week 1. But appetizing or not, it’s college football. Here’s who I’ll be watching.

Friday night gets underway with only 2 games, our Big Ten brethren Maryland will be visiting Florida International. What is it with these garbage off-brand programs visiting Florida International? Indiana struggled down there for 3 quarters last week. I’ll be interested to see how Maryland looks against a common opponent. Kickoff is set for 6:30 CENTRAL on CBS Sports. At 7 CST, #13 Louisville travels to Syracuse on ESPN2. And that’s it.

Basically everyone will be in action on Saturday, but basically nobody will be playing anyone of importance.

Note: All times here are CENTRAL.

As for what I’ll be drinking, this weekend I’m going with Deschutes Obsidian Stout. I expect the Iowa D to look a little more stout this weekend than last and I’ll drink to that. At 6.4% ABV, I should be feeling pretty fantastic by kickoff of the Iowa game at 6:30 and with the temps expected to be in the low 70s all day, dropping into the lower 60s during the game, a stout should feel pretty decent in the ol’ beer receptacle. As a backup plan, I plan to have plenty of vodka shooters on hand. Things get crazy in this series from time to time and I don’t want to remember anything if this year looks anything like 2002.
