Week 7 college football TV schedule and open thread

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

NCAA Football: Indiana at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

There are a few ranked match-ups today, and two of those games are between top-ten teams. (Yes, there is a top-ten SEC match-up on during Florida’s game — but the good news is that that game is on CBS, and thus will take an eternity, so you will probably get to see whatever kind of late-game shenanigans Tennessee has in store for this one.)

Florida returns to The Swamp this week, for what is now a true homecoming – the Gators were of course supposed to play LSU there last weekend but that game was postponed due to Hurricane Matthew, and has subsequently been rescheduled for November 19th in Baton Rouge. Florida kicks off at 4:00 p.m. today, on the SEC Network, for its homecoming game with Missouri; which also serves as the Gators’ first and only game in Gainesville this month — and its second-to-last home game this season.

Feel free to come back to this thread to comment while watching any of today’s later games after the Gators leave the field.

Here are our picks for today’s viewing windows:

Early (12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Eastern)

Vanderbilt at Georgia (12:00 p.m., SECN): Vanderbilt’s defense is fine but their offense is lackluster. UGA’s passing game struggled against South Carolina, but its running game is solid. Methinks this one will not be pretty.

NC State at Clemson (12:00 p.m., ABC): The undefeated No. 3 Tigers are back in full swing after a slow start to the season. The one-loss Wolfpack have shown offensive ability this season (their sloppy, Hurricane Matthew game against Notre Dame last week notwithstanding). The Tigers should win, but this game could stay interesting for a bit.

West Virginia at Texas Tech (12:00 p.m, FS1): The No. 20 Mountaineers are undefeated (and somehow have only played four games). There will probably be plenty of passing and points.

Kansas State at Oklahoma (12:00 p.m., ESPN): The No. 19 Sooners have two losses, but both are out of conference (Houston, Ohio State) and so Oklahoma remains one of the favorites in the Big 12 race. The Sooners have been suspect on defense but the offense has a lot of firepower. Kansas State boasts a veteran defensive unit that leads in many Big 12 defensive categories.

Afternoon (3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern)

Obviously you will be watching Florida play Missouri at 4:00 p.m. on the SEC Network.

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

Ole Miss at Arkansas (7:00 p.m., ESPN): The No. 12 Rebels and No. 22 Razorbacks played a wild one last season, with Arkansas winning in overtime (and thus removing Ole Miss’s chance to represent the SEC West in the SEC Championship Game). Remember that fourth and 25 play? Hopefully this year’s contest is as interesting.

Ohio State at Wisconsin (8:00 p.m., ABC): College GameDay’s game of the day features the No. 2 Buckeyes, and their top-10 offense, who have beaten their first five opponents by an average of over 40 points. Ohio State also has a top-10 defense. Wisconsin has a formidable defense themselves but a pedestrian offense.

And here’s your Week 7 schedule table.
