Saturday Bye Week open thread

Kevin C. Cox

Northwestern's off, but there's lots and lots of good games. Let's talk about them

Guys, I have power!

It's a bye week, which means Northwestern doesn't play a football game, but on the plus side, this is pretty much the most interesting week of the football season and we here Northwestern fans get to sit at home and watch it. Four games between ranked teams, including the biggie, LSU-Alabama, which ain't on til much later.

The big... er... Big Ten game is Nebraska-Michigan State. We pull for Michigan State to aid our slim B1G hopes, but whatever.

Anyway, I dropped the TV schedule for this week up in here. Let's all watch the games and then talk about it, amirite?
