Week 7 college football TV schedule, open thread: Will the SEC East get wider open?

New, 586 comments

After a week of distractions, there's plenty to distract Florida fans today.

Mike Zarrilli

Thank goodness there is football after that week of talking about anything but football.

And, hey, Florida might be leading the SEC East by the end of the night.

That's because, before the Gators' 7:30 p.m. kickoff against LSU on the SEC Network, Missouri welcomes a newly Todd Gurley-less Georgia to Columbia. If Georgia wins, Florida could be one of four SEC East teams with a single loss in conference play by the end of the day. If Missouri wins, Florida could be a game behind the Tigers entering what might amount to a winner-take-all showdown in its Homecoming game against them next week.

The 3:30 p.m. block doesn't have nearly as many ramifications for Florida, but it does have a slew of potentially great games. Auburn's trip to Mississippi State pits two top-five SEC West teams against each other in what could be a shootout, while Baylor hosts TCU in a top-10 battle on the Brazos that has eclipsed the Red River Rivalry (also happening today, at noon) this season. Notre Dame will try to stay undefeated against North Carolina with a showdown against Florida State looming, and Oregon and UCLA will play what might amount to a College Football Playoff elimination game.

Simply put, there's a lot of football methadone for pained Gators to indulge in on this Saturday.

...and then there's former Florida quarterback Jacoby Brissett's N.C. State team playing former Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy's Boston College team. Maybe skip that one.
