Heath's Remote - Week 6

Florida's visit to LSU is the centerpiece of college football this weekend. ESPN's Gameday show will be live from Baton Rouge beginning at 10 a.m., and there's even a chance with two hours of show time they might discuss some aspect of the game other than Tim Tebow's status.

It's a given that you'll be watching CBS at 8 p.m. when Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson begin the broadcast, but here's what to watch while you bide your time for the big one this Saturday.  

One of the side effects of the SEC's new TV package is that most games have been played at night. That's not the case this week, as everyone makes way for the primetime special between UF and LSU. There are multiple interesting early games to enjoy, beginning right after Gameday with Auburn at Arkansas on ESPN at noon. The Tigers are undefeated, and Gus Malzahn's return to Fayetteville proides a little extra spice.

At 12:21, ESPN's SEC Network over-the-air package has Georgia visiting Knoxville. Tennessee's Lane Kiffin is still looking for his first SEC win, and he's going to be dealing with a beaten up Bulldogs squad. One curious note about this year's Georgia squad: they've turned the ball over 13 times on offense. All but one of those came within the first four plays of a drive, so if the trend holds UT might get a shot at some short field situations.

Two other SEC games begin at 12:30, with Kentucky visiting South Carolina on FSN South and high scoring Houston at Mississippi State on ESPNU.  

When the season began Alabama's visit to Ole Miss was supposed to be the test of whether the Rebels were a legit top 10 team or not. Instead, South Carolina exposed Houston Nutt's squad as frauds two weeks ago. Now Ole Miss will try and reestablish themselves as a credible Western Division contender at 3:30 on CBS. Wisconsin at Ohio State on ABC is also worth a look. The Badgers are still undefeated and have given Jim Tressel's teams some trouble over the years, although they're 16-point underdogs heading into this one.  

If you decide to move your eyes from the screen for even a second while the Gators are tangling with LSU, it might be worth checking out Georgia Tech at FSU. After a week filled with drama in Tallahassee, who knows how the Seminoles will perform? Will the supposed fan blackout happen? Will Bobby Bowden tell the sideline reporter he's not sure what's wrong with Chris Weinke tonight?  It's all on ESPN2 beginning at 8. If you need a little extra football to finish the night with once the UF game's wrapped up, Arizona at Washington is an adequate Pac-10 matchup you could join on FSN late in the first half.
