Weekend Viewer's Guide - Part II

Part one of our viewer's guide focused on your best choices during a pretty lean week of college football overall. These are the other options for when you aren't glued to Florida-Georgia. Since the political ads are inescapable this weekend, our categories are named for famous movie presidents.

All games are Saturday unless otherwise indicated and all times are Eastern.

CHRIS ROCK IN HEAD OF STATE

Northwestern at Minnesota (noon, ESPN2) -
The Gophers are 7-1 and is led by the combination of QB Adam Weber and the nation's third leading receiver Eric Decker. With three of their four games remaining at home and Penn State not on their schedule, Minnesota actually has a great shot of playing on New Year's Day. Northwestern got off to a good start but has lost two of their last three.

Wisconsin at Michigan State (noon, ESPN) - Mark Dantonio is trying to show things have changed in East Lansing, that the Spartans have become more consistent. The classic MSU thing to do would be to spend this entire week celebrating the win over Michigan and then come out completely flat against the Badgers. Wisconsin finally picked up their first Big Ten win last week and still hope to get bowl eligible.

Kansas State at Kansas (12:30, FSN) - The Sunflower state showdown features a pair of teams scoring in the 30s. Kansas loses to every high quality team they play - fortunately for them, K State is not a high quality team.

Clemson at Boston College (3:30, ESPNU) - Game two of Dabo Swinney's audition for the Clemson head coaching position sees him lead the team on the road for the first time. Both of BC's losses have come on the road, and they have historically owned the Tigers in recent years.

JOHN TRAVOLTA IN PRIMARY COLORS

Air Force at Army (noon, ESPNU) -
The Commander in Chief's trophy could be in play, as Army's surprisingly won three of their last four. Charlie Weis is still ticked off about losing it last year.

Iowa State at Oklahoma State (3:30, ABC) - This is the one time of year when Cyclones don't scare anyone in Oklahoma.

Oregon at California (3:30, ABC) - It's not often Oregon goes to a campus and is bothered by all the hippies - welcome to Berkeley, guys!

Iowa at Illinois (3:30, ABC) - UF-UGA is on at the same time - you really don't want to watch Ron Zook and Kirk Ferentz go against each other again.

Washington at USC (6:30, FSN) - The Tyrone Willingham Farewell Tour plays Los Angeles in a game that will get as ugly as Pete Carroll wants it to.

Louisville at Syracuse (7, ESPNU) - First Tommy Bowden, then Willingham - a nation turns its lonely eyes to you, Mr. Robinson.

Arizona State at Oregon State (10:15, FSN) - The Beavers control their destiny for the Rose Bowl and have just one game against a ranked team left. Think the BCS is getting nervous about that?

East Carolina at UCF (Sunday 8, ESPN) - What exactly did the nation do to deserve seeing UCF on Sunday night two weeks in a row?
