THREE GAMES TO WATCH OUTSIDE OF COLLEGE PARK


Ah, sunny College Park, a beacon of hope and optimism and eight-year-olds who have given us the finger. If you aren't up the steep cheap seats (warning: do not throw anyone up for touchdowns up there, it is a terrifying experience) and have the luxury of a remote control to get you through this Saturday, here are a few other games to watch.

#11 Michigan State at #14 Nebraska (Noon, ESPN) - Yes, Michigan State pulled off the recent greatest Hail Mary (two points, then I'll drop it: not really a Hail Mary because it wasn't a Catholic School and there can *only be one*). They have been fun to watch all year except when getting beaten on down by the Irish, and Nebraska has a pretty good comeback of its own a few weeks back. Midday, autumn, Big Ten football. Not a bad way to start the day.

#22 Georgia at Florida (3:30, CBS) - World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. I'm calling it that until the end of time, and I'll probably watch it that many times as well. Richt is the king of the unsportsmanlike.

#9 Oklahoma at #8 Kansas State (3:30, ESPN) - Picture-in-picture this one to find out how the Sooners rebound and if Bill Snyder is for real.
