The last few weeks have been kind of weak from "must watch TV" standpoint. That changes this weekend, starting tonight.
Baylor at K-State
This one could (should) get laughable. Baylor travels to the Little Apple on a Thursday night showcase on Fox Sports One and it could be over before the half. The Bears lead the country in points per game at 61. And when you think about it, they've probably (definitely) let off teh throttle a few times this season. Meanwhile, K-State is not very good.
Mississippi State at Missouri
If you're looking for another game to watch on Thursday after Baylor takes a commanding lead in Manhattan, switch over to ESPN. The scoreline will likely look different. Sure, Missouri has a good defense and will probably limit the Bulldogs to far below their season average of 35 points, but the Mizzou offense is laughable. The Tigers score on average 14 points per game, but in their last three games they have put up 3, 6, and 3 points in losses to Florida, Georgia, and Vanderbilt. Rough.
Florida State at Clemson
This is the game that will determine Clemson's fate most likely. Get past the Seminoles and barring a ridiculous collapse or the computers voting in undeserving SEC teams into the playoff (always a possibility), the Tigers can make a statement that they deserve to be there regardless of the outcome of their conference title game (which they'll probably win anyway). This game is on ABC at 2:30 PM CT.
TCU at Oklahoma State
If you're not into ACC football, then switch over to Fox at 2:30 to catch the biggest Big 12 game of the week. As opposed to the Baylor/K-State game, this one has the potential to live up to the hype. Both teams carry 8-0/5-0 unblemished records into this clash, and despite the fact the the Cowboys weren't expected to be here, they will be hyped. Plus, i'm guessing after the tragedies last week in Stillwater, the Okie State crowd will want a reason to let loose. This one should be good.
LSU at Alabama
You're going to watch it anyway, no analysis needed. Here's the information: 7:00 PM CT on CBS.
