With today’s early games in the books, let’s look at today’s late games.
Of course, we should start by reminding you that it’s officially National Root for the Irish Day. That’s because, at 4 pm PT, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish officially become our second favorite college football team when they host the Southern Cal Trojans. You can go back to hating the Irish for basketball reasons tomorrow. Today, cheer for them on NBC.
The second best matchup later today is the game between the #10 Penn State Nittany Lions and the #17 Iowa Hawkeyes. This is a game between two very good teams. The Nittany Lions remain undefeated and would like to add a win against a Top 25 team to their College Football Playoff resume while the Hawkeyes would like to stay in the race for the Big Ten West.
The only reason I’m calling the Penn State-Iowa game the second best late game today, though, is because the best late game should be ESPN’s 5 pm PT game which features the #7 Florida Gators who are visiting Death Valley to play the #5 LSU Tigers. This game is probably the one to watch if you only watch one game late today.
There are, of course, a couple of late Pac-12 games. The #15 Utah Utes head to Corvallis to play the Oregon State Beavers at 5 pm PT on Pac-12 Networks while the Washington Huskies visit the Arizona Wildcats at 8 pm PT on Fox Sports 1.
Here’s the full list of late games:
