Week 4 college football TV schedule and open thread: Weird early, SEC foes late

New, comments

Here's what to watch before and after the Gators play.

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time this season. we don't have to wait all day to see the Gators play. Florida returns to the Swamp at 3:30 p.m. to battle Tennessee on CBS. For the Gators, it is both the first afternoon game of the season and the first this season to be called by old SEC stalwarts Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson.

Here are picks for the two viewing windows sandwiching Florida:

Early (noon to 3:30 p.m., Eastern)

LSU at Syracuse (noon, ESPN): Yes, you read that right, the Tigers are going to Syracuse for an out of conference game. This one has weird written all over it. Syracuse actually has the #3 ranked rushing defense but has played no one of note to date. LSU just has this running back, that you may have heard of, named Leonard Fournette. He is a bad man.

BYU at Michigan (noon, ABC): BYU had a great narrative through their first two games as their backup QB lead the Cougars to both of those victories by way of end of game hail-marys. The magic ended last week with a one point loss to UCLA. Strangely, this is Michigan's fourth game this season against a team from out west.

UCF at South Carolina (noon, ESPNU): Do you like bad football? How about a game between a team that is 0-3 with a loss to an FCS school and one which is 1-2 and starting their 3rd different quarterback this year? Spurrier's Gamecocks need this game for a shot at making a bowl.

Once again the noon slate is doing its best to disappoint us all!

Evening (7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., Eastern)

Vanderbilt at Ole Miss (7:00 p.m., ESPNU): A match-up featuring two teams the Gators will play this season. Here's a chance to get a good look at Ole Miss before they come to Gainesville next week (if you didn't get a good enough look at what they did to Alabama already). Vandy's defense is improved but I suspect this one could get ugly in a hurry.

Missouri at Kentucky (7:30 p.m., ESPN2): A game with SEC East implications. A loss would put Missouri behind in their quest for a 3rd straight SEC East title. Winning this one would go a long way towards Kentucky showing that they can compete in the East. First team to 10 points wins!

UCLA at Arizona (8:00 p.m., ABC): College GameDay will kick off the day at this "game of the week" between two ranked undefeated teams. The winner gets a leg up in the PAC-12 South race.
