College Football Games of the Week – Week 10 TV Schedule

Week 10 has arrived and most college football fans have had this one marked on their calendar for a number of weeks.  We have the top two teams in the polls matching up but believe it or not, there are other games on the schedule.  This is a great week to take care of your chores early, as the schedule is pretty light of marquee match-ups until the late games.

As always, for channel numbers for a game in your area, please visit our TV Listings.

On to the games…

Early Game to Watch: Texas Tech @ Texas (Noon ET) Texas Tech fans are wondering which Red Raiders team is real, the team that upset Oklahoma 41-38 or the team that got pounded by Iowa State at home 41-7.  This match-up against Texas will help answer that question.  Junior quarterback Seth Doege leads one of the nation’s top passing offenses, ranked 5th in the country with 389 yards per game.  Sophomore wide receiver Eric Ward is his top target, he leads the team with 49 catches and 8 TDs.

The Longhorns have rebounded from a disastrous 2010 season. Their only two losses are against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, two teams in National Championship contention.  They’ve struggled with passing the ball, but feature one of college football’s best ground attacks, averaging 219 yards per game.

Other games to watch: Michigan @ Iowa (Noon ET) North Carolina @ NC State (12:30pm ET) Vanderbilt @ Florida (Noon ET)

Mid-Day Game to Watch: Texas A&M @ Oklahoma (3:30pm ET) Oklahoma is fresh off a thrashing of Kansas State 58-17, keeping their hopes for a National Championship alive.  Junior quarterback Landry Jones continues to put up huge numbers for the Sooners 5th ranked scoring offense. Senior wide receiver Ryan Broyles is second in the nation in both receptions with 81 and TDs with 10.  They’ll need the passing game more than ever since leading rusher Dominique Whaley is expected to miss the rest of the season with a broken leg.

The Aggies are coming off a heartbreaking loss to Missouri last week and have a tough schedule remaining the rest of the way.  Three of the next 4 games are against teams ranked in the top 25.  Scoring points hasn’t been a problem for A&M; it’s the defense that’s hurting them.  In their 3 losses, the Aggies have scored 29, 38 and 31 points, more than enough to win. To pull off this upset, they’ll need to figure out a way to stop the Sooners from hanging 40 on them.

Other games to watch: Purdue @ Wisconsin (3:30pm ET) Southern Miss @ East Carolina (3:30pm ET) Army @ Air Force (3:30pm ET)

Late Game to Watch: LSU @ Alabama (8:00pm ET) The top two teams in the polls are facing off during the regular seasons for the first time in five years and it’s also the first time two SEC teams have met as 1 and 2 before the SEC Championship game. Can there be any more hype for this game? Both teams are coming off bye weeks so they should be well rested and prepared for this showdown. When Alabama has the ball, LSU swarming defense will be focused on stopping running back Trent Richardson, who’s scored 17 TDs to go along with 989 rush yards.  AJ McCarron will need to be smart with the football and move the chains on third down.

When LSU has the ball, they’ll need to find a way to score on this Alabama defense that’s allowing only 6.9 points per game, best in the country. Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson are a two headed monster at quarterback, with Lee doing most of the passing and Jefferson leading the spread option. LSU likes to hand the ball off to everybody and as many as 4 running backs could see between 5 and 10 carries.

I like Alabama at home 23-17.

Other games to Watch: South Carolina @ Arkansas (7:15pm ET) Kansas State @ Oklahoma State (8:00pm ET) Oregon @ Washington (10:30pm ET)

  1. How about the West Virginia vs Louisville at noon on Saturday. Will Bright House be carrying that game?

    • The Louisville @ West Virginia game is being carried by the Big East Network, so it will be available on TV. The actual station depends on where you live. Here in Orlando, the game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Florida.

  2. Because I am a major fan of college football when I received the “Insider” email from Brighthouse I immediately clicked on the link to this article. The games this article recommended are all going to be very interesting but I’m puzzled. This article was posted on Wednesday the 2nd and the author failed to mention Florida State’s Thursday evening game against Boston College nor the Central Florida vs Tulsa game. Brighthouse has a pretty healthy college football fan base of men and women in Florida. I was disappointed that these games were not mentioned. Then again, I have to assume by the fact that the Florida Gator game against Vanderblit was featured by the author there’s a possibility the he just forgot that college football games are now being played on days OTHER than Saturday. For anyone interested Florida State plays Boston College @ 8:00 PM this evening on ESPN/ESPN3 and Central Florida plays Tusla @ 8:00 PM this evening on CBS Sports.

  3. Need your thoughts on NFL this week.

    Cowboys, Texans or Eagles?

    • I would definitely stay away from the Eagles. The Cowboy seem like a good play but you never know what you’re going to get with them. I’d go with the Texans.

  4. Is it possible to to change the picture at the top of the page?

    • No, this picture is here to stay!

  5. Thanks for the update big guy, but this just in… those games were purposely left out of the article because no one cares! You think it’s an accident those we’re moved to Thursday???

    • I know I care, I watched FSU dominate last night. They’ll be in the top 10 by the end of the season. And the reason FSU and UCF weren’t mentioned is because this article focuses on Saturday games only.

  6. There’s really only one game this week… The National Championship

    • Judging by the coverage on ESPN, there is only one game this weekend.

  7. Great insight bro. Roll Tide, Roll! How bout those Noles!

    • Thanks, glad you enjoyed it!
