Our First Full Slate of College Football: Saturday Day Open Thread

We start things off early today with Penn State and UCF in Ireland

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning all! We start things off bright and early this morning with Penn State and UCF facing off bright and early at 830am est.  Michigan State cruised last night, and seems to have so far avoided a major scare with Cook taking a shot to the knee early on but coming back the next series to show he was ok.  Here is what is on tap for the day:

Penn State at UCF in Ireland || 8:30am EDT || ESPN2

The conferences second non cupcake matchup comes in the beautiful country of Ireland with PSU taking on UCF. This game should be the next real OOC test of the weekend, and we can all see what new HC James Franklin rolls out of Happy Valley.

Youngstown State at Illinois || 12:00pm || BTN

Another cupcake, what should be another easy win.

Indiana State at Indiana || 12:00pm EDT || ESPNNews

Another in state cupcake matchup, another easy win.  Does Indiana exceed 60?

Northern Iowa at Iowa || 12:00pm || BTN

More cupcake, although I hear from the Iowa contingent they always play you all hard.  Lets not have any upsets ok?

Appalachian State at Michigan || 12:00pm EDT || ESPN2

Look, a rematch of 2007!  Hoke tries to not repeat the results as Michigan opens against Appalachian State.  Granted, Appalachian State is not the 2007 team they were, but this is probably the game we watch before it gets out of hand as we channel surf to another game.

Ohio State at Navy in Baltimore || 12:00pm EDT || CBSSN

We all get to see OSU sans Braxton Miller.  Navy is always a tough OOC test with the triple option.

Western Michigan at Purdue || 12:00pm EDT || ESPNU

It's only 12 and we are on our seventh game of the day? Whew.  Purdue looks to improve upon last year and start things off with a win against WMU.

The rules are the same, we are pretty chill so you should be too! No personal attacks, illegal game links, no porn, etc. and we are good!  Yelling oh fuck when Purdue goes down big is perfectly acceptable.

I just typed this out by iPad with no keyboard with two toddlers, and made it with time to spare! Go B1G lets keep the wins coming!
