Open Thread: College Football Week 1

New, comments

K-State's season started with a thud last night, so take your mind off it by watching other teams play. This is your open thread for the weekend's other games.

Last night wasn't much fun. But let's not discuss that here. Morse has an excellent post recapping the game here.

Even for a disappointed bunch, the first Saturday of college football is a magical day. And for a Big 12 fan, there are a couple good matchups to keep an eye on. Full Big 12 schedule is below.

Friday

Texas Tech 41, SMU 23, Arlington, Texas (Cowboy Stadium): Kliff Kingsbury gets his first win as a head coach over Southern Methodist.

Saturday

West Virginia vs. William & Mary, Morgantown, W.Va. (Milan Puskar Stadium), 11:00 a.m., FS1

Oklahoma State vs. Mississippi State, Houston, Texas (Reliant Stadium), 2:30 p.m., ABC

Oklahoma vs. Louisiana-Monroe, Norman, Okla. (Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadim), 6:00 p.m., FSN PPV

Baylor vs. Wofford, Waco, Texas (Floyd Casey Stadium), 6:30 p.m., FSN

Texas vs. New Mexico State, Austin, Texas (Royal-Memorial Stadium), 7:00 p.m., LHN

Iowa State vs. Northern Iowa, Ames, Iowa (Jack Trice Stadium), 7:00 p.m., Cyclones TV

TCU vs. LSU, Arlington, Texas (Cowboys Stadium), 8:00 p.m., ESPN

Cheer HARD for Oklahoma State (gag) and TCU. Nothing less than the Big 12's perception this year is on the line in those games.

SB Nation has a full weekend viewing schedule here. No game stand out as particularly interesting, but I'll probably keep an eye on the Rice game for whatever the MOB and Johnny Chocopockets are up to. The Big 12 has as good a set of opening games as anyone, which is a little sad.
