This weekend's slate of college football games is pretty brutal. I mean, ESPN's College GameDay is in Fargo, North Dakota to visit the FCS North Dakota State Bison as they take on the 0-2 Delaware St. Hornets (which is one more College GameDay than Syracuse has ever hosted ... trololololo #OrangeEagle).
I take it Elon was unavailable to host this week?
If you absolutely had to miss a weekend of college football this fall, this would probably be the week to catch up on yard work or something. There's plenty of solid stuff, but nothing that really qualifies as must-see action. But if you still need your college football fix, here are some games worth watching. Hey, maybe we can even chat about them in the comment section?
