THREE GAMES TO WATCH AT THE ESSO CLUB INSTEAD OF GOING INTO MEMORIAL STADIUM


Above, we direct you to one of the most important landmarks in all of Clemson, South Carolina. Given the likely outcome of this weekend's game, there is a chance that you will see members of the H&L team there before, after (during?) the match, watching the other delightful treats in college football this weekend. Let's get to the three games to circle:

#3 Oklahoma vs #11 Texas (ABC, Noon) - One of the best rivalry games in the country - and certainly the best that never takes place on either school's campus - laces up this weekend for a showdown in Dallas and a ton is on the line for the Sooners. One of these teams will stay undefeated, but given Oklahoma's poll position (pole position entendre!) on the season start, they control their own destiny to get to New Orleans as we discussed yesterday. This game rarely disappoints, whether you call it the Red River Rivalry or the Red River Shootout. The teams have split the last four, so this will be a nice little battle.

#17 Florida at #1 LSU (CBS, 3:30) - Sssh, I know this one is during our game, but I just can't get enough of Les Miles and Clemson has an in-and-out policy to go tailgate while the time is still running. So, if someone has a DirecTV setup in the parking lot, we very well may be there or at the Esso for part of this one (or at least the tail end after the game is over).

#12 Michigan at Northwestern (BigTen Network, 7:00) - I actually think this game will be interesting. PersaStrong is back, and Michigan needs to prove to me that they can do more than just score points. File this one under a "keep an eye on" during the other primetime games.
