There are only three games on today’s college football schedule.
At 3 pm PT on ESPN, the North Carolina Tar Heels will face the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. So far this season, Mack Brown has the Tar Heels undefeated through two games. See, Chip. It’s not that hard to leave ESPN and, you know, win. It’s not like the Tar Heels have played Cincinnati or San Diego State either. Brown’s wins have come against the likes of the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Miami Hurricanes, both Power 5 schools.
Tonight’s game should be another challenge for Brown’s guys as Wake Forest is also undefeated after two games, but their opponents have not been as good as Carolina’s. The Demon Deacons have beaten Utah State and Rice so far. But, whenever you have unbeaten teams playing, it should be a good game.
In tonight’s second game, Les Miles’ Kansas Jayhawks, who have also won more games than Chip Kelly’s Bruins, square off against the Boston College Eagles on the ACC Network. Here’s another new conference network, brought to you by the conference and ESPN, which probably has more coverage than the Pac-12 Networks. Thanks, Larry Scott.
BC is another undefeated team playing tonight. The Eagles have beaten the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Richmond Spiders. So, this should be another fun game to watch.
Then, the night wraps up with a Cougar Battle. No, I’m not talking about the latest episode of the “Real Housewives of Kalamazoo.” I’m talking about UCLA’s Week Four opponent the Washington State Cougars and the Houston Cougars. Last week, Houston rebounded from their loss to Oklahoma by beating Prairie View A&M, 47-17.
Meanwhile, Mike Leach has his Cougs averaging 58.5 points per game. Sure, they’ve played the New Mexico State Aggies and the Northern Colorado Bears, but 58.5 points per game is still impressive. It’s almost like Leach is running the same offense as Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma. Oh, wait...they basically are.
That enough looking past the Sooners for this week. Ugh.
Here’s your TV watch grid for tonight:
