Weekend Viewer's Guide - Part II

Part one of the viewer's guide gave you the best options in a somewhat meager weekend for college football. Here's the leftovers for you to check on occasionally during commercials of the good games. Our categories this week are named for Robert Redford movies - all times are Eastern and all games are on Saturday.


Ohio State at Northwestern (noon, ESPN2) -
The Buckeyes had two weeks to get ready for this one, but ongoing controversy about the suspension of receiver/kick returner Ray Small may prove to be a distraction. The Wildcats will likely use two QBs but have health issues at tailback.

Georgia at Kentucky (12:30, SEC Raycom) - Georgia defensive tackle Corey Irvin was quoted this week as saying the Buldogs "haven't given up hope" of winning the BCS title this year. Hey, Corey? You should. Given Kentucky's huge offensive issues, this may be a game the Dogs can use to take out their post-Florida frustrations.

Cincinnati at West Virginia (7, ESPNU) - Bearcats coach Brian Kelly is being talked about as a possible Tennessee candidate. He's got a creative offense and has been surprising some people this season. West Virginia has found some stability after a tough start to their season, but might not be able to handle the Cincy attack.


Michigan at Minnesota (noon, ESPN) -
One of these teams already knows they won't go to a bowl. In the Little Brown Jug game, that's expected. It's not supposed to be the Wolverines, though.

Syracuse at Rutgers (noon, ESPNU) - Four BCS schools firing their coaches this year before Syracuse has to be one of the biggest upsets of the season.

Marshall at East Carolina (3:30, CBS CSTV) -Former UF assistant Donnie Jones is doing a great job turning around the Thundering Herd in basketball. For football, the progress is much slower.

Oklahoma at Texas A&M (3:30, ABC) - The A and M stand for Awful and Miserable. Oklahoma can name their score here.

Virginia at Wake Forest (3:30, ESPNU) - Honestly, all the ACC games just blend together at this point. You don't want to watch most of them, including this one.

Kansas State at Missouri (7, FSN) - K State may play harder than usual with coach Ron Prince having been fired this week, but that only elevates them from bad to mediocre.

Arizona State at Washington (7, FSN) - Dennis Erickson makes his return to Seattle, where Seahawks fans suffered through his run as coach. One similarity between the two situations is that the home team won't be winning.
