    Darrell Hazel probably needs to explain that 47-14 loss to Kentucky his team received for its only loss.

    No. 16 Nebraska (-15) at Iowa, 12, ABC
    This newfangled rivalry matchup is called the Heroes Game. Iowa running backs prefer hoagies when stoned.

    No. 24 Northern Illinois (-20) at Eastern Michigan, 1
    If the Huskies win the Mid-American Conference, some asshat at your poker game is going to suggest Jordan Lynch as a Heisman Trophy candidate. Punch him in the dick.

    John L. Smith is hoping he can take this rumored boot home because it matches the one Razorback nation shoved up his ass.

    Utah (-22½) at Colorado, 3, FX
    The 2012 Buffaloes are to Pac-12 Conference football what Courtney Love was to 1990s grunge. They showed up drunk, and everybody fucked them at least once.

    For Mike Leach, Black Friday follows Thirsty Thursday.

    West Virginia (-1) at Iowa State, 3:30, ABC

    The 3-7 Bulls received the same number of votes in the preseason poll as Texas A&M.

    Arizona State at Arizona (-3), 10:30, ESPN
    The Wildcats may have played the toughest schedule in the country. Rich Rodriguez sleeps with a stuffed Wilbur doll. These things are related.

    Saturday, Nov. 24

    Jim Calhoun and Rick Pitino have a concubine wager on this game.

    No. 20 Rutgers at Pittsburgh (-2), 12, ESPN2
    This could be the Big Ten Conference's best chance at a nonconference road win against the Atlantic Coast Conference.

    Kentucky at Tennessee (-13½), 12:20
    It would be irresponsible for the announcers at this game to acknowledge the play on the field at any point.

    dixiehack says I am not allowed to talk trash.

    No. 6 Florida at No. 7 Florida State, 3:30, ABC

    Blake Bell scores on 19.6 percent of his carries. Landry Jones has not carried the ball this season.

    Wisconsin at Penn State (-2½), 3:30, ESPN2
    Montee Ball could score seven touchdowns in each of the Badgers' final three games this season and still be one short of last season's total.

    No. 12 Stanford (-2) at No. 15 UCLA, 6:30, Fox
    The last time a Hogan went to Los Angeles, he changed his nickname to Hollywood and worked for a rival promotion.

    Missouri at No. 10 Texas A&M, 7, ESPN2
    It was great of the Southeastern Conference to preserve this long-standing Big 12 Conference rivalry.

    Actually, Hogan went to Atlanta for the rival promotion, not LA.

    Also left out: Saturday's battle for the Old Oaken Bucket.

    If Purdue wins, that bucket will get the sh&#$@! kicked out of it by some SEC or Big 12 team in a bowl game.
