Week 7 of the 2018 college football season has an afternoon full of high-profile matchups. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be drama in the other games. Here’s a rundown of games that should pique the interest of WVU fans.
Oklahoma State @ Kansas State, 12:00 PM, ESPNU
This is the only conference game of note at this time slot. The Cowboys (4-2) have been disappointing after a hot start, but the Wildcats (2-4) need a win to give itself a real shot at bowl eligibility after a loss to Baylor. Drink everytime K-State runs the QB or OK State defense gives up a play of 20+ yards.
Nebraska @ Northwestern, 12:00 PM, ABC
Clearly, someone thought this game would be interesting enough to put on ABC. I don’t know why. The Cornhuskers (0-5) desperately need a win, but I doubt it will come while visiting the Wildcats (2-3). Drink whenever you realize you’re watching Big Ten football at noon.
No. 2 Georgia @ No. 13 LSU, 3:30 PM, CBS
Will the Tigers (5-1) bounce back after a dismal performance against Florida? Will the Bulldogs (6-0) pass their first true test of the season? This SEC clash might actually be enjoyable to watch. Drink any time either coach’s head looks like it will pop off.
No. 7 Washington @ No. 17 Oregon, 3:30 PM, ESPN2
This game could determine if the Pac-12 actually can get a team in the CFP. If the Huskies (5-1) win, they should survive the rest of their schedule to make it to January football. However, the Ducks (4-1) at home are no tough out. Drink every time the announcers mention another conference.
No. 15 Wisconsin at Michigan, 7:30 PM, ABC
Lord, this is really the best primetime game this Saturday? Luckily, we have our game to focus on. I guess you can watch this Big Ten clash with an eye on Twitter as the Wolverines inevitably do something really stupid against the Badgers. Drink every time Jim Harbaugh looks distressed or confused.
Hawaii at BYU, 10:30 PM, CBSSN
The Warriors have been a pretty consistent team on offense this season, but the Cougars always seem to have a stingy defense. This late-night matchup should be interesting enough to keep your attention, so drink every time you remember BYU students aren’t allowed to drink.
The good thing about this week’s lack of headlining matchups is that you can channel surf to find that sneaky-good game. So drink up and enjoy some college football!
