Comments (6)

I asked because each conference is still uncertain of a time and station for one game under its control and those won’t be determined until either late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. There are very few 6-day options ESPN can use, so that also factored into my question.

ohio st got shellacked by OU right away at home. the same thing happened against VT at home who lost 7 games that year. they should not be in there. losing at home in a slaughter should DISQUALIFY any team. it is just fixed for TV ratings. TCU is the best team in the country.
