We've never really done this around here, but since Northwestern and Vanderbilt don't begin play under the lights until 7 p.m. central, there's an entire day of college football to be had before NU even starts. So considering we have a pretty thriving community around here around this time - 900 comments in the last game thread! - I figure we should have something up here to chat as game time draws nigh.
Feel free to comment on whatever games you're watching, food you're eating, and beer you're drinking, or whatever else comes to mind throughout the day. I'll be here at least for now, the game thread will be up an hour before kick as usual.
Here's your early B1G schedule:
11 a.m.: New Hampshire vs. Minnesota, BTN. Do it to em, New Hampshire! (Just to make us feel less bad for losing to you a few years back)
UCF vs. Ohio State, ESPN2
Penn State vs. Virginia, ABC
2:30 p.m.: Purdue vs. Notre Dame, NBC
Indiana vs. Umasszzzzzzzzzz, ESPN3
Air Force vs. Michigan, ABC/ESPN2
Michigan State vs. Central Michigan, ESPNU
Iowa St. vs. Iowa, BTN
3 p.m.: Wisconsin vs. Oregon State, FX
That's a pretty full plate, and that's not even including the rest of the world, which you can check out below the jump. Go Cats!
