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

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.
