Your College Football Saturday Viewing Guide: September 9, 2017

Business, as they say, is about to pick up.

NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Georgia
Any ranked team playing Notre Dame is my new favorite team.

After a couple of weeks of kind of lackluster starts to the season, things are starting to fire on all cylinders. 21 of the Associated Press’ top 25 teams are in action on this fine Saturday, which is actually all of the teams possible. The other four teams had their games cancelled as a result of Hurricane Irma. God bless Florida Atlantic for hustling up to Madison to play Wisconsin even though they might not be able to get back to the Miami area until some time on Monday. Lane Kiffin is a crazy person, I guess.

On top of the stack of ranked teams, there’s four games — all on national television — between two ranked teams. Now, they’re all after 6pm Central on the clock, but there’s enough entertaining games on the rest of the schedule to keep us busy until then, including ¡El Assico! right off the top.

Speaking of keeping busy, it appears that Big Ten Network and SEC Network are doing regional coverage in the first two broadcast windows of the day. Those games are marked with a double asterisk in the table below, so if you’re not getting the game you want to see, be sure to spin over to WatchESPN to solve your problem.
