College Football Week 4 TV Schedule/Saturday Pre-Game Open Thread

TV listings for today's college football games and an open thread to track todays games leading up to UCLA's kickoff against New Mexico State.

After a couple days of appetizers, the full slate of Saturday college football is here. The Bruins don't play until 7:30 pacific time this evening, so there is a full day of football to set us up. Unfortunately, today is looking like possibly the weakest slate of games this season, with just this afternoon's ASU/Stanford game being the only contest between 2 ranked opponents (and only because of the SPTR's giftwraping the Sun Devils their last win), and not that many other compelling games.

But in the end, it is college football. That is enough for many of us to sit down in front of the TV, have some coffee or a beer and enjoy. Here are today's Pac-12 conference games, and today's other televised CFB games. All times noted are Pacific; Pac-12 conference teams in bold.

There are a couple of promising games coming up - that ASU/Stanford game, as well as Lane Kiffen's next step toward showing all his haters wrong against Utah State. Michigan State's visit to South Bend could also be a good one. We will have our normal game threads later this evening to follow along with the Bruins.

This is your open thread for today's non-UCLA college football action.
