Welcome to the first of two bye week Saturdays on Ohio State's slate this season. Whether you plan to spend time with family, catch up on some of the tasks you've been putting off, or settle into the couch for a 12-hour college football marathon – a session that doesn't include the angst/joy of an Ohio State game, we hope you make the most of it.
If you're looking for something to do before Paul Finebaum shows up on GameDay to tell you how bad Ohio State is, this Adam Rittenberg piece on what went into the biggest game of Pat Fitzgerald's coaching career is well worth a read. Spoiler: Fitz quotes channels Flavor Flav.
The early games include the Red River
Shootout Rivalry Shootout (RIP, Mack Brown), Indiana at Sparty in what could be an interesting tilt all of a sudden, 5-0 Missouri at Georgia and Ol' Ball Coach impaling Bret Bielema's Razorbacks.
