It might not be fair that LSU and Texas A&M fans have to wake up at 11 a.m. local time while lowly Texas gets to host the big prime time game, but it works out just fine for the college football TV viewer, who has an obvious, must-watch game in all three major time slots as a result.
The Aggies and Tigers start us off, and if you're not awake around noon most of the time, watching Barkevious Mingo chase Johnny Manziel will do the trick. South Carolina-Florida, the biggest BCS game of the day, follows, with Kansas State's trip to West Virginia the best night game.
Rivalry duties are handled by Stanford-Cal, Minnesota-Wisconsin, Michigan State-Michigan, Florida State-Miami and Alabama-Tennessee this week, though Iowa State might feel like despised rivals when they reach Stillwater after ruining Oklahoma State's title shot (and kind of killing the BCS) last year.
Mayhem will rule the middle portion of the day, with nine of 25 BCS-ranked teams all kicking off between 3 and 3:30 p.m. ET, including two in the Top 5 and two on the road.
