College Football Saturday Open Thread: Week 1

A place for you to kick back, relax, and discuss the day's action with your fellow Jayhawk fans.

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Tell a few jokes, have a few beers, cook up some hamburgers - it's Labor Day weekend, and what better way to spend it than ignoring your family, watching college football, and of course, hanging out with your online posse at RCT.

"No, wait honey, fizzle just said something hilarious in the Open Thread, I need to Lol and come up with my own witty response."

"Ha, oh that Grad, he's been drinking again. Hashtag what a character!"

Here is your schedule of Top-25 games for this weekend.  I also included a few "games of interest."  Games are listed in the order they are scheduled to start.

All times CENTRAL as I'm sick of the east coast bias.  (I did the math in my head, I hope I did it right.)

- Saturday -

7:30 AM     Penn State vs Central Florida (Dublin, Ireland), ESPN2

11:00 AM   #5 Ohio State @ Navy, CBS Sports Network

11:00 AM   #7 UCLA @ Virginia, ESPN

I apparently missed when UCLA became a Top-10 football program.

11:00 AM   Appalachian State @ Michigan, ESPN2

Can App St. go 2-0 all-time vs Michigan?  It would be hilarious.

11:00 AM   North Dakota State @ Iowa State, FOX Sports 1

Like I said earlier this week, it's funny when it's not happening to you.

2:30 PM     West Virginia vs #2 Alabama (Atlanta, GA), ABC/ESPN2

2:30 PM     Rice @ #17 Notre Dame, NBC

Rice without Reaganomics has got to be a good thing for the Domers.

2:30 PM     Florida Atlantic @ #22 Nebraska, BTN

Now I see why Nebraska's sellout streak is (was?) in jeopardy.

2:30 PM     South Dakota State @ #24 Missouruh, ESPNU

Why is the line on this game only 24 points?

3:00 PM     Arkansas @ #6 Auburn, SEC Network

3:00 PM     UC Davis @ #11 Stanford, Pac-12 Network

4:30 PM     #16 Clemson @ #12 Georgia, ESPN

5:00 PM     Liberty @ #23 North Carolina, ESPN3

Can Turner Gill pull off the upset?  Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaa... I'm sad now.

5:00 PM     Elon @ Duke, ESPN3

A look at a future KU opponent.

6:00 PM     La Tech @ #4 Oklahoma, FOX Sports Networks PPV

The La Tech men's basketball team won in Norman last year, can the football team match it?

6:10 PM     Stephen F. Austin @ #20 Kansas State

Couldn't find a TV listing.  Of course, I didn't look very hard.  Go check BOTC if you're that interested.  Anyway, I sure hope K-State can handle one guy.

6:30 PM     Fresno State @ #15 Southern Cal, FOX

7:00 PM     #1 Florida State vs Oklahoma State (Dallas, TX), ABC/ESPN3

8:00 PM     #14 Wisconsin vs #13 LSU (Houston, TX), ESPN
