The Dubgate Waits for Primetime

Ohio State-Cal doesn't kick until 7 p.m. tonight, but unlike last week, the non-conference action is pretty hot this Saturday.

Start with the noon clash between Nebraska and UCLA (ABC), the first of four B1G-Pac battles on the day. The Bruins were the first to punch holes in Nebraska's defense last season and the Cornhuskers will be eyeing redemption.

Louisville-Kentucky is also worth a look, if for nothing else than to see what small-time hate looks like. It's kind of adorable, actually. The noon hour features the typical run of meh Big Ten games including Akron at Michigan (BTN, Go-Go-Tressel magic), Bowling Green at Indiana (ESPNU) – you are three-point favorites, IU, it's time reexamine your station in life – and Youngstown State (MANGINO!) at Michigan State (BTN, 2 p.m.).

Once the noon games are over, you'll tune into CBS, like everyone else in America, to catch Alabam-Texas A&M. Aggies got their yell-on last night and their ready for Saban.  Following that clash, it's go time in Berkeley.

Here's your Cal game preview and Bucknotes to print off.
