The best day of the week has come again, my friends, and I hope you're ready for what is going to be a long day leading up to our Baylor Bears playing tonight at 6 PM CST on Fox College Sports.

As for getting you to this evening, there's no shortage of garbage out there on the Week 3 schedule, which starts slow but builds momentum throughout the day, reaching a crescendo with a compelling slate of (non-Baylor) evening games, including Florida at Tennessee, USC at Stanford, Notre Dame at Michigan State, and Texas at Ole Miss. Oh, and hello rivalry: BYU and Utah kick off the hate in 2012. In this case I'm actually glad Texas doesn't play until late this evening; we'll likely have our game well in hand by that point and I'll throw that game on the second TV.

After the jump are your Week 3 TV listings, point spreads, and game day links for today's college football action.

Spencer Hall's Rootability Index: Week 3

College Football Rootability attempts to sort out the most likable teams in the weekend's given matchups for the uninvested fan. It makes little sense, but neither does college football. And we love it so.
