Week six of the college football season lacks really intriguing matchups. Luckily, there are maybe three good games all day and they’re in three separate time slots. Like last week, I’ve provided drinking rules for each game.
No. 19 Texas vs. No. 7 Oklahoma, 12:00, FOX
This is the only matchup of ranked teams at the noon slot, and it’s the premier game in the Big 12. The Sooners and the Longhorns usually provide highly entertaining football that sometimes makes sense, but usually leave onlookers bewildered. Drink every time they show the State Fairgrounds, two drinks when they show fried food.
No. 5 LSU at No. 22 Florida, 3:30 PM, CBS
This cross-division battle in the SEC has provided very entertaining games in the last four meetings. With the Gators (4-1) at home and looking like a real football team, the Tigers (5-0) could cement their spot in the top five with a win. Drink anytime Coach Orgeron talks and you can’t understand him.
Iowa State at No. 25 Oklahoma State
This game carries Big 12 weight, as the Cowboys (4-1) cannot afford to lose another conference game if they want to compete for a championship and the Cyclones (1-3) desperately need to find their mojo from last season. Drink every time the cameras show OSU student banging on the walls with paddles.
No. 13 Kentucky at Texas A&M, 7:00 PM, ESPN
The Wildcats (5-0) are undefeated in football. The Aggies (3-2), however, are favorites at home. Can UK continue it’s magical season or will The 12th Man lift TAMU? Drink anytime you realize there is a man named “Benny” playing college football.
No. 6 Notre Dame at No. 25 Virginia Tech, 8:00 PM, ABC
It’s a sad day when the Hokies (3-1) are the premier event on a Saturday evening. Drink whenever you remember the Big East and how the Irish (5-0) screwed us over OR whenever the VT loss to OLD DOMINION is discussed, or when you just want to remind yourself of the fact that VIRGINIA TECH LOST TO OLD DOMINION.
Fresno State at Nevada, 10:30 PM, ESPNU
The Bulldogs (3-1) and Wolf Pack (3-2) both average more than 35 points per game this season. This should be an entertaining late night game to keep you awake. Drink whenever someone scores or they mention Derek Carr or Colin Kaepernick.
Utah at No. 14 Stanford, 10:30 PM, ESPN
It can’t be the “After Dark” slot without a Pac-12 After Dark game, so here ya go. The Utes (2-2) and Cardinal may score a total of 30 points this game, but it’s football, so you’ll watch. Drink whenever you have to change the channel because you’re bored.
Alright, By-Godders, enjoy some football and drink some beer.
