Week 9 college football TV schedule and open thread

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

Florida's off, but plenty of other teams are on. And the biggest games are on the Left Coast.

The Florida Gators are off again in Week 9, but there's plenty of goodness on the college football TV schedule for Gators fans to enjoy. (All times below are Eastern.)

The most relevant game for Florida fans takes place in Columbia, Missouri for the second week in a row: South Carolina travels to the Show-Me State to play the same undefeated Missouri team (7:00 p.m., ESPN2) that dominated the Gators last week, and is essentially the last line of defense against Missouri winning the SEC East.

But the most interesting games of the day, for my money, are a Pac-12 clash and a Big 12 battle. Unbeaten Oregon takes on once-beaten UCLA in the day's biggest game, a 7:00 p.m. tussle in Eugene, and Oklahoma hosts Texas Tech at 3:30 p.m. in a game that likely eliminates the loser from conference title contention — both teams still have to travel to Baylor.

Enjoy those games with the aid of SB Nation's handy Week 9 TV schedule table, and with the use of Adam Jacobi's Week 9 viewing guide. I'll be hanging around in the comments when I've got a game on, but I'm definitely going to try to use Florida's bye to see Gravity.
