Week 5 college football open thread: Do you need to mow the lawn?

Because, uh, this might be a day for mowing the lawn...

NCAA Football: Old Dominion at Virginia Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s see, what is there to watch today in Week 5 around Florida playing a game that we can argue shouldn’t be a thing?

The Fox nooner is Texas Tech traveling to Oklahoma? Okay. I guess that’s there if you really want to watch points and more points.

3:30 p.m. Eastern window, hmmm: Alabama-Ole Miss might have been more interesting before that charlatan got run out of Oxford, and Florida State-NC State might be a chance to laugh at the Seminoles. But is Virginia-Notre Dame really the day’s best game? I watched Notre Dame last week. Notre Dame is boring.

And at night, is Mississippi State heading to Auburn really the best we can do? I suppose I’ll be watching what I can for scouting purposes, but, like, that game was well and truly fun once, and only because it was hilariously bad.

So maybe find something else to do around Florida-Towson? I dunno. You have to pace yourself and know how to use your chits every football fall, right?
