One of the best things about living on the West Coast is that, on a Fall Saturday, you can, literally, watch football from the moment you wake up in the morning until you go to bed late tonight. Of course, the trick is to actually watch good football during those hours.
That's why they make picture-in-picture on TVs. It's why Tivo makes DVRs with multiple tuners. And, it's why they make browsers with multiple tabs. But let's face it. Northwestern State at Louisiana Tech isn't going to matter much to anyone not affiliated with either school.
Obviously, the big late game is the Clemson-Florida State game, which will be even more interesting because FSU changed course last night and decided to suspended last year's Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston for the entire game instead of the ridiculous half game suspension they had previously issued. I guess all that heat on the NFL this past week may have had a trickle-down effect.
Regardless of the reason, I'm glad to see Florida State showing Winston that actions have consequences because, let's fact it, with everything he had going on during the off-season, he probably should have been suspended for more than just one game.

Five Pac-12 teams play at 7pm or 7:30pm PT. Tonight, I don't expect the Oregon-Wazzu game to be very close, but, you never know with Mike Leach. It might be worth watching, but I still expect it to be over by halftime.
The Cal-Arizona game may just show us whether Cal actually has a decent team this year or if their two wins just raised false hopes in Strawberry Canyon. Meanwhile, Arizona is looking to prove that they deserve some respect in the Pac-12 South.
Finally, OSU hosts SDSU in Corvallis on Fox Sports 1 at 7:30pm PT. While an upset is always possible, I like the Beavers and QB Sean Mannion in this one.
This is your late game open thread.
