Early Morning/Afternoon College Gameday Open Thread

A look ahead at the non-Ducks games on the menu.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning my fellow ATQers!  Another Saturday is upon us with a solid schedule of games.  We already saw our Beaver brethren fall to Utah in overtime on Thursday.  And while we all know that the real game is taking place in Eugene today, there are still some games with some intrigue, highlighted by Jameis Winston Florida State vs. Notre Dame and Oklahoma vs. Kansas State.  Also, this is my first contribution-slash-post to the site, so go easy on me today, eh!


(4) Baylor @ West Virginia (FS1) - The undefeated Bears pulled out an incredible comeback last weekend against TCU.  They'll need to keep their foot on the gas for a chance at a Playoff spot.

(14) Kansas State @ (11) Oklahoma (ESPN) - The Sooners are the only current Big 12 team with a winning record against Bill Snyder as KSU's head coach.


(21) Texas A&M @ Alabama (CBS) - If Nick Saban walks out of this game with a victory, it'll be the Aggies' first three-game losing streak in nearly three years.  That said, 'Bama hasn't looked as dominant as we are accustomed to and A&M certainly has a chance in this one.

UCLA @ Cal (ABC/ESPN2) - Cal scored one (one!) touchdown last week.  Bruins' quarterback Brett Hundley is likely looking for a rebound game after losing to the P12's most impressive team last week.  This game comes down to whether or not Cal can slow down a strong offensive team.

Rutgers @ (13) Ohio State (ESPN2) - The Buckeyes, after their second bye in four weeks, are looking to claim their 18th consecutive Big10 regular-season victory.  There's little doubt in this one.

(24) Clemson @ Boston College (ESPNU) - Clemson is playing without their exceptional freshman quarterback, Deshaun Watson, who is out for a month after having four screws inserted into his finger.

(8) Michigan State @ Indiana (ESPN) - Indiana is without their starting quarterback.  The Spartans have been dominant nearly all season, impressing the nation with a surprising offensive punch.  This one could get ugly.


Colorado @ (22) USC (P12) - All you need to know is that Colorado is looking for their second P12 win in 21 tries.


Tennessee @ (3) Ole Miss (ESPN) - Ole Miss has established itself as an absolute force.  Their sights are set on making the SEC Championship for the first time.  The Vols are a modest 3-3, but their defense has moved into the top-20 nationally in scoring defense and total defense

Anything else?  Leave it in the comments.  Enjoy your Saturday gridiron action and GO DUCKS!
