Your College Football Saturday Viewing Guide: November 3, 2018

We’ve entered into the “official rankings” territory of the college football season.

The official College Football Playoff rankings came out earlier in the week. Thus, every ranking you see in this week’s Viewing Guide and for all of the Viewing Guides for the rest of the season will be using those rankings instead of the Associated Press top 25 poll. May as well use the rankings that actually matter as much as “these are the teams in the playoff right now even though this won’t matter next week much less a month from now” rankings actually matter at all.

The marquee game of the day is one where we get to deviate from our usual College Football Anarchy Rules. By rule, cheering for anarchy means cheering against top five ranked teams. However, there are a few caveats to that rule, and one of them to cheer against #1 at all times, no matter who their opponent is. With #1 Alabama going on the road to play #3 LSU today, that gives us the rare opportunity to cheer for a #3 ranked team. It may be a futile and stupid gesture, but seeing as the NCAA doesn’t actually recognize a champion for FBS football, the entire sport is futile and stupid, so it all works out.

In other news, the SEC East division title is on the line today, as #6 ranked Georgia visits #9 Kentucky. Yep, that’s right, Kentucky’s a top 10 team now. Will wonders ever cease? In any case, both squads are 5-1 with just one conference game remaining after this week. There is a very real chance that we are 60 minutes away from Kentucky — KENTUCKY BLEEPING FOOTBALL — being one half of the SEC Championship Game.

Here’s your College Football Anarchy cheering guide for the week:

#3 LSU vs #1 Alabama
Louisville at #2 Clemson
Northwestern vs #4 Notre Dame
#14 Penn State at #5 Michigan
