Bruin Football Bites: College Football Saturday Open Thread Edition

Well as I mentioned yesterday - it's a good feeling to get ready for a whole day of college football action - with a UCLA team that is 1-0. The feeling is even better given for the first time in a while we saw a Bruin team that was not a total car-wreck (vespa clowns going through a car wash) and showed signs of improvement during the game giving us a little bit of hope.

I will put together an "Eye Test" on the Rice game but will not post till tomorrow. Let's enjoy the game actions throughout the country today one of which includes our next opponent. The key games of interest for us today:

  • Notre Dame vs. Navy (6 a.m. PST, CBS)
  • Miami (Ohio) at Ohio State (9 am, Big Ten Network)
  • Ohio at Penn State (9 am, ESPN)
  • Southern Miss at Nebraska (12:30 p.m., ABC or ESPN2) [CheekyBruin has a good post on this game here]
  • Michigan vs. Alabama in Dallas (5 p.m. PST, ABC).
  • Auburn vs. Clemson in Atlanta (4 p.m., ESPN)
  • Hawai'i at Southern Cal (4:30 p.m., FOX).
  • San Diego State at Washington (7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Network).

More info on these games on the SBN mothership here. Also, if you haven't had your fill of posts related to the Rice game yet, I will highlight some notables after the jump.

First of all, at least for this week I am not going to link anything from the Los Angeles Trojan Times related to this game because of this. No page views for those clowns. As for the others:

That's all I have for this early Saturday am - the first full Saturday of 2012 CFB season. Let's get this show on.

GO BRUINS.
