Sports Saturday (11 Oct 08)

Oklahoma and Texas at 11am?? If I lived on the west coast I wouldn't even be awake yet. Seriously spoils a great game.
The state of Alabama is really cut up when it comes to the 2:30pm ABC game. It looks like the Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Mobile areas will get Notre Dame @ North Carolina. But the Montgomery, Auburn, and Selma areas should get Arizona St. @ USC. I have no idea why.
At least one of the ESPN talking heads called Texas Tech the most overrated team in the Top 25. Guess we'll find out when they face a bad Nebraska team. (Like 20.5 point dog bad.)
Don't look now, but Notre Dame @ North Carolina should be a pretty decent game. If UNC wins, they should find their way into the Top 25 next week. If the Irish win, they'll probably be bumped up to #4.
Who here thinks Tennessee has a chance at Georgia? *crickets*
Ah, a rare CBS night game. It's a good one, too. Bama fans have to pull for Florida in this one. Maybe they both can lose, though...
Is this the week Wisconsin finally gets knocked out of the Top 25? What a disappointing team.
That OSU/Mizzou game should be pretty damn good. You know, if you like offense.
The first NHL game of the 2008-2009 season makes the Sports Saturday schedule! The Red Wings raised their championship banner from last year just about 2 hours ago. Ah, glorious.
Auburn fired their offensive coordinatory, Tony Franklin, and the line against Arkansas was static at -18.5 Interesting. Alabama is off this weekend. (Much needed rest, too.)
