Fortunately, dear Reader, I'm available to help you answer that question.
From the early morning College Gameday at Happy Valley to Colorado/Washington State "Pac 12 After Dark", there are a boatload of different opportunities to immerse yourself in the wild, wonderful world of college football.
Every week on College Sports Journal, I compile a list of links of every live internet stream that the NFF College Football Broadcast schedule puts out. But this week, you don't even need to go there, because everything you'll need, Patriot League, FCS, or FBS, I'll have right here.
9:00 AM-Noon: College Gameday, ESPN, Live Stream on WatchESPN
ESPN College Football Gameday (sponsored by the Home Depot) is still the linchpin of all the day's college football coverage, hosted by Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, and others. What makes this week's Gameday so compelling to folks in this area is the fact that Penn State will be hosting Gameday, the signs, and the atmosphere that kicks off the official college football weekend. Though I am still a tad bit disappointed that I wasn't invited to discuss Lehigh's 106-0 win over Penn State back in 1889 (yes, this really did happen), there's still a decent chance that there's a Lehigh, Lafayette, or Patriot League shout-out on the program, so it's worth tuning in.
(Last week, Gameday was at James Madison, the No. 1 FCS team in the nation, as they were facing off against Villanova. It was a great success.)
In the world of the FCS, especially in the East, the most interesting game of the week is a battle of unbeaten Ivy League teams. Dartmouth and Columbia are both 5-0 and facing off to see which team has the inside track to the title. The Ivy League Champion (for some unjustifiable reason) does not choose to participate in the FCS playoffs, so this is the closest thing to an elite matchup that the Ivy League has.
Local FBS teams Rutgers, UConn Temple, and Army play early, while an interesting UCF/Navy matchup looms at 3:30 PM as well. On the polar opposite end of the spectrum, winless Georgia Southern takes on winless UMass in Amherst, in case you were wondering how both of these former I-AA National Champions are working out since they've gone to FBS.
In the evening, of course, is the matchup of the day in college football: Michigan at Penn State at 7:30 PM. And if you can't get to sleep after the Penn State game? That's when Colorado/Washington State comes on to help you slumber.
