By now many of us have memorized the Ohio State schedule and have even looked up the average temperature and likelihood of rain or snow for the Oct. 25th matchup against Penn State.

Just me... Ok well never mind then I guess. Because its the offseason and next month football season starts I figured over the next few weeks I'd post the best games each week with days, times, and networks to keep an eye out for.

Without further ado, Week 1:

Thursday August 28:

TA&M at USCe - 6:00 pm SEC Network

Boise State vs. Ole Miss - 8 pm ESPN

Saturday August 30:

Penn State vs. UCF - 8:30 am ESPN 2 (Game in Ireland)

UCLA at UVA - 12 pm ESPN

Appy State at UM - 12 pm ESPN2

WVU at Alabama - 3:30 pm ABC or ESPN 2

Cal at Northwestern - 3:30 ABC or ESPN 2

Arkansas at Auburn - 4:00 SEC Network

Clemson at Georgia - 5:30 ESPN

Florida Sate vs. OkSt - 8:00 pm ABC

Wisconsin vs. LSU - 9:00 pm ESPN

If Wisconsin loses on the last play of the game - what are the chances that Jen and Bert throw up the Karma sign again???

Hurts to say but i fully expect FSU to absolutely demoralize Okie State.  Worse than what they did to Clemson last year.

What are the odds Wisconsin can take that game?

I almost wish they were playing Arkansas.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

With no quarterback? not good.

Stave isn't a complete disaster.  Or is he not playing for some reason?

Rooting for that other OSU, didn't know it was a prime time matchup (should've figured).

Unfortunately I think Oklahoma state lost just a little too much to keep that game close. Think they lose like 7 defenders. Top 3 tacklers,19 of 21 interceptions. Starting QB Chelf and a couple of good WR's. While I wouldnt write them completely off I just dont feel real excited about their chances.If Chelf still had eligibility I would have felt pretty decent.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

While it's probably naive to say this, maybe it's a good thing that Ok St lost some pieces. FSU won't know exactly what to expect. I don't think osu will beat them, but hopefully it's a close game.

Cal v Northwestern was a fun game last year.

Wisonsin,Clemson,West Virgina, and Boise state have chances to put a real early chink in the might sec's armor. Only game that should get out of hand is Bama vs. WVU but that will be whatever Bama QB's first game action ever and they have a new OC. Exciting shit man.Cant wait for the first game to kickoff I dont care if it is Marshall on a thursday nighter.

I'll pay particular attention to Appy State versus UofM.

I've seen bigger upsets in the past.

Does WatchESPN app carry the games they play on the conference networks they own? Or do they have a separate app for each conference?
