It's very strange to be able to watch every Pitt game.

Thanks ACC.

No kids sports this afternoon, first day I can sit and watch football in the afternoon. Check the schedule and.... not a single game I'm interested in watching this afternoon.

It's such a bad football day that College Gameday is in Fargo.

Yup. Horrible slate of games. The NFL slate isn't any better

Mel Blount's son plays for Florida A&M.

Earl Holmes is the coach.

Levon Kirkland is the D-coordinator.

OSU's school record for TD passes in a game was 5. Kenny Guiton just threw his 6th...

... in the 1st half.

Marshall beating VT and N Texas within 7 of Georgia at half. So, couple interesting things going on anyway.

Colorado's cancelled game last week plus an off week this week means that they remain undefeated and tied for first place in the PAC 12.

BOOM

If they beat Idiana next week I could see them maybe beating Michigan the following weeks. As long as Hack plays well.

Agreed. OSU is really the only sure loss I see on their schedule. Hack needs to start better, that's for sure. Starting from behind negates their best asset in their running attack.

Looks like Alabama took Colorado State lightly. They won't lose, but Saban can use this as motivation.

True. He threw him about 6 jump balls to Robinson in the end zone today, but the corner on him did a very good job on him.

I'm glad to see the defense respond well, although Kent St. with or without Archer doesn't say much. The defensive play calling was better for sure though.

Colorado State's head coach was the OC at Bama under Saban. I imagine that Saban wasn't necessarily dead-set on obliterating the Rams and was trying to ease past them with Ole Miss (who aren't great or anything, but are fairly competent and can score points) next week.

PSU game was so nondescript that BTN didn't even show any highlights at halftime of the Mizzou-Indiana game. (BTN was on when we turned TV on at the hotel after Hersheypark - they had closed the park early since the big rides had shut down about 4pm save about a 10 minute window 45 minutes later when they reopened only to shut down again. Kids rides, the Pirate, the miniature train and the twin turnpike were about all that was open. But hey, Chocolate World was open its normal hours)

I am on my phone and can't pull the article but the NCAA is walking back the scholarship sanctions on PSU. No one makes things up as they go along quite like the NCAA.

Beginning with the 2014-15 academic year, five additional initial scholarships will be restored to the Penn State football team each year through 2017-18.

That's great. No reported child rapes in two years. NCAA proclaims that PSU is on the "right track".
