The noon slate on Gameday features a future Vols opponent and several Top 25 teams to whet your appetite for the main attraction at 3:30 when Tennessee takes on West Virginia. It’s probably also worth DVRing those Auburn and Georgia games to see how they look. Auburn vs. Washington, in particular, could be fun. After the Vols, of course.

Assuming we’re still in the football mood, Michigan and Notre Dame in the evening slot should be entertaining.
