    We're still nationally televising Penn State games?

    North Carolina State at Miami (Fla.) (-3), 12, ESPN
    The Criminals will be ranked next week, when they face the Catholics. The story lines demand it.

    Winner of this game gets to choke away any shot at the Big Ten Conference title game in October.

    Dabo Swinney still is a little butthurt that he's not the best -bo coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

    Virginia Tech (-7) vs. Cincinnati, in Landover, Md., 3:30, ESPNU
    The coaches still think Virginia Tech is worth ranking. Virginia Tech lost to Pittsburgh. Virginia Tech is not worth ranking.

    Will Jeff Tedford ever be fired?

    No. 4 Florida State (-17) at South Florida, 6, ESPN
    It's about time for a Seminole meltdown loss, right?

    No. 25 Boise State (-26) at New Mexico, 6
    Boise State: still adorable, now unwatchable.

    Towson at No. 3 LSU, 7, ESPNU
    Les Miles isn't the vengeance sort. If Nick Saban still were coaching LSU and his team dropped a spot in the rankings without losing, dear lord.

    Oregon is only laying 29? Good Lord. Shouldn't that be in the 40s?

    I wish they'd scheduled these games so I could go to the Ryder Cup in the morning, Northwestern at 1 and Illinois in the evening.

    I normally avoid all point spreads that get into silly time like that, but holy shit are you right.

    Don't know how up-to-date this is, but here are ND's future football schedules:

    Michigan has been taken off from 2015-17, so I guess it's pretty up-to-date.

    Notre Dame "can't" play Michigan, remember? They have that Wake Forest series coming up.

    Looking at the 2015 schedule I can see why they dropped them there but even with the five game agreement with the ACC, there's still room for them in 2016 and 2017.

    But the fact that they are dropping them seems to indicate that the ACC scheduling agreement is more ironclad than the one ND had with the Big East.
