CFB Week 9 -- GAME DAY -- Open Thread, TV Schedule, Links, Notes, Tweets

Baylor is off today, but that doesn't mean the CFB world is standing still. It just feels that way.

So we don't have any of the normal stuff that goes in this post talking about our game, because we don't have a game.  That tends to make talking about a game pretty difficult, when they don't exist.

But other games DO exist, and here's what I'm watching today.

Mark Seymour's Games to Watch:

11 AM: A&M vs. Sakerlina (SEC), Ole Miss vs. Auburn (ESPN)
2:30 PM: OU vs. KU (FS1), OSU vs. TT (ESPN)
6:00 PM: UT vs. ISU (FS1), ND vs. Temple (maybe, ABC)
9:30 PM: Stanford vs. WSU (ESPN)

Basically, I want to see Kyler Murray in his first start (sorry), Ole Miss detonate Auburn en route to blowing up the SEC West race, OU continue (or not continue) its dominant performances the past few weeks, and if OSU can stay undefeated in Lubbock.

According to school policy, he'll have to be suspended for two weeks, but there's been no official word.

Exactly which Week 9 college football games to watch, with full TV/streaming schedule -
Just keep this tab open until early Sunday morning.

What we talk about when we talk about work and football -
For some reason we, as a nation, like to do this during sports, the thing we watch when we're not working presumably to forget about working.
