Don’t think of it as a bye week. Think of it as getting EI on every other team in the country.
(All times ET)
Toledo at Central Michigan – Noon – ESPN3
San Jose State-Minnesota might end up being a better game, but I’m opting for this one since the Mids play Toledo sooner. The Rockets opened with back-to-back games against SEC opponents, then followed that up with a win over FCS Eastern Washington. The conference opener might be the first real indication as to how this team compares to some of the better Toledo teams of the recent past.
Wake Forest at Army – Noon – CBS Sports Network
There’s a huge difference between 2-2 and 1-3, especially when only two of your last eight games will be played on your home field. This game might set the course for the rest of Army’s season.
Pittsburgh at Duke – 12:30 – ACC Network/ESPN Gameplan/ESPN3
Two future Navy opponents in one game. It’s economical.
Michigan State at Notre Dame – 3:30 – NBC
Michigan State is 3-0 but not exactly in impressive fashion. This will be a bellwether game for the Spartans.
Morgan State at Western Kentucky – 7:00 – ESPN3
You’ll have to get online if you want to watch Navy’s next opponent. I originally wasn’t even going to bother watching this game since it’s against Morgan State, but now that WKU might be starting a new quarterback I’ll have to take a look.
Wyoming at Air Force – 10:15 – ESPNU
Air Force football is about the last thing I want to stay up late for, but I’m not going to miss the Ethics Bowl.
