Friday College Football Viewing Guide: Avoid a Gridiron Hangover With More Football

New, comment

Need something to wash the taste of last night's Vanderbilt loss out of your mouth? How about the random event generator that is Kent State/Illinois Football?

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Maybe you want a little break from college football after Vanderbilt's 14-12 loss to Western Kentucky last night. That's totally understandable. But the best way to cure a hangover is to never stop drinking - and the best remedy for a football hangover is to watch Rhode Island/Syracuse until you feel better about the Commodores.

That budding upstate New York/Ocean State rivalry is just one of eight games that dots tonight's gridiron schedule. Three top 25 teams - Baylor, Michigan State, and Boise State - will be in action, but the best game of the night could be the slapfight between Illinois and Kent State. The Golden Flashes went just 2-9 last season, but they'll get the chance to surprise an Illinois team that fired its head coach one week ago. This game could be awful, it could be incredible - its the mystery cooler of college football's opening week.

But if the Illini aren't your thing, here's the rest of tonight's college football schedule.
