There’s really not much worth watching before Saturday this week, unless you just need to see something because it’s football.
The Vols are off this week, so it’s a good week for channel-hopping and talking and catching up with chores and projects and stuff. As far as the games go, the Red River Rivalry headlines the noon slot and could be an especially good one this year. You also get to root for West Virginia while you remind anyone within ear shot that more than half of the Vols’ opponents so far have been in the Top 10 at some point already this season. Woo.
The priority in the 3:30 slot is No. 5 LSU traveling to No. 22 Florida — Geaux Tigahs. And in the evening, we get to see a couple of future opponents as Auburn travels to Mississippi State and Kentucky goes to Texas A&M. Vanderbilt is also at Georgia, and that could be instructive as to our expectations for the Vols game against the Commodores.
