College GameDay is in Knoxville, and Florida-Tennessee is one of the biggest games of the day. There are four ranked-on-ranked match-ups today, including Gators-Vols and two other SEC conference games.
Florida faces their first big test of the season, and their first road game, when they play the Volunteers (who will be wearing their Smokey Grays) in a checkerboard nightmare of a stadium at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. After that game, feel free to come back to this thread to comment while watching any of the later games.
Here are our picks for today’s viewing windows:
Early (12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Eastern)
Georgia at Ole Miss (12:00 p.m., ESPN): The No. 23 Rebels (still ranked despite a 1-2 record) and No. 12 Georgia both have some issues and inconsistent secondary play. The Bulldogs will hope to have more success getting Nick Chubb going than they did against Missouri. Will the Rebels amass, and then blow, another 20+ point lead? Stay tuned!
Florida State at USF (12:00 p.m., ABC): The No. 13 Seminoles head to Tampa to regroup after getting demolished by Louisville. USF has won ten of their last 12 games dating back to last season, and has started this season 3-0. Last year, the Bulls had some success against FSU in the first half before the Noles pulled away in the second.
Wisconsin at Michigan State (12:00 p.m., BTN): Both the No. 11 Badgers and the No. 8 Spartans have impressive wins (LSU for Wisconsin, Notre Dame for Michigan State) and unimpressive middling victories over lesser opponents (Georgia State for the Badgers, Furman for the Spartans).
Afternoon (3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern)
Obviously, you will be watching the Gators play Tennessee (3:30 p.m., CBS).
Evening (7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern)
South Carolina at Kentucky (7:30 p.m., SECN): South Carolina was expected to be one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the SEC East. But, Kentucky might run away with that honor themselves. The Gamecocks have had issues on offense but the Wildcats have given up 131 points in their first three games.
Oklahoma State at Baylor (7:30 p.m., FOX): The No. 16 Bears have yet to be tested while the Cowboys defeated Pitt last week after suffering a controversial loss to Central Michigan the week before. This one may turn into a typical Big 12 shootout.
Stanford at UCLA (8:00 p.m., ABC): The No. 7 Cardinal and Heisman candidate Christian McCaffrey face UCLA and Josh Rosen in a meeting of Pac-12 title hopefuls.
Arkansas vs. Texas A&M (9:00 p.m., ESPN): One of these teams will pick up their first loss tonight. The No. 17 Razorbacks and No. 10 Aggies continue doing their thing at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for the third straight year. These games have been interesting (and ended in overtime!) the last two seasons. The Hogs have yet to beat A&M since they joined the SEC.
