By virtue of Fall Premiere's schedule, you've got me in Kate's place this morning. I hope nobody is too disappointed, because we've got a combination of things on tap this morning for your college football enjoyment. First, you can hit the post-game thoughts from last night and give me your own. Second, I've clipped and placed everything I can find about last night's game below the jump. You'll probably sense a theme in the common appreciation of our offense versus our defense after last night's game. Finally, you need look no further than ODB for everything you need to know about today's action in college football. Regretfully, I don't have the same awesome graphics I had the last two weeks. If that changes, I'll make sure to update the post.
Here's the complete TV schedule for today's games courtesy of SB Nation. I'm going to play particular attention to the West Virginia - Maryland game that starts in about 45 minutes on FX to get a look at our next opponent. I do not expect to be pleased by that look.
To help prioritize, Andy Hutchins has a viewing guide for today's best games so you don't waste time watching something like Ole Miss at Tulane. His guide should help you navigate the more stressful periods of today's action when there are a number of good games available.
Now that all that business is out of the way, hit the jump for the Baylor-centric news.
