Your College Football Saturday Viewing Guide: October 21, 2017

Seems like a pretty good day of football, even if it’s a little evening heavy.

Maryland v Georgia Tech

Last week, I lamented the appearance of the slate of nationally televised college football games. This week seems to be much different. We get two top 10 teams in the opening window, with Wisconsin defending their top five ranking and Oklahoma State on the road in Austin.

The next window has three more top 10 teams in action, although one matchup (Tennessee at Alabama) is less interesting than the other two (Syracuse at Miami & Oklahoma at Kansas State). Things really get going in the evening, with South Florida, LSU, and Auburn all on the road against unranked teams. That would be enough, but there’s also Michigan at Penn State and USC at Notre Dame, with all four teams ranked in the top 20.

If you can drag yourself away from all of that, you can watch 37.5 point underdog Kansas at #4 TCU, and hoooooooooo boy that might be a total disaster out in Fort Worth.

I’m not the biggest college football fan in the known universe, but that’s a pretty solid day of action, and there’s still a ton more games on broadcast, and you know at least one of those will get completely insane.

Here’s your slate for today.....
