It’s SoCon Saturday so you’re probably not watching the SEC.

NCAA Football: Florida Atlantic at Rice Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

As we wait until tonight’s game against Ole Miss, here’s your open thread for the morning and afternoon sessions of college football.

Games to watch:

UTEP at Rice (11:00 AM CT, ESPN3): Oh yes, of course you want to watch this.

Oklahoma State at TCU (11:00 AM CT, FS1): Okie State is #11 in the country, TCU is unranked, and TCU is a 6-point favorite. I don’t get it, either.

Texas-San Antonio at Texas A&M (11:00 AM CT, ESPNU): Kevin Sumlin’s seat is getting warm again, and UTSA is seeking to become bowl eligible for (I think) the first time ever.

Kansas State at Baylor (11:00 AM CT, ESPN2): Baylor’s season is suddenly falling apart.

UL Lafayette at Georgia (11:00 AM CT, SEC Network): Oh God, why?!

Ohio State at Michigan State (11:00 AM, ESPN): For some reason, ESPN picked this game to show in the 11 AM time slot. I don’t know, either.

Wisconsin at Purdue (11:00 AM, ABC): Yeah, somebody decided to put Purdue on national TV. Think of the children.

Miami at NC State (11:30 AM, ACC Network) and Virginia at Georgia Tech (11:30 AM, ACC Network): ACC, you just HAD to be different with your kickoffs at 11:30...

Florida at LSU (12:00 PM, SEC Network): Florida will lose and everyone will pencil Tennessee into the SEC Championship right until they lose to Vandy.

UConn at Boston College (12:00 PM, ACC Network): Now why would you watch Florida-LSU when UConn is playing Boston College?

Middle Tennessee at Charlotte (1:00 PM, ESPN3): I don’t know.

Oregon at Utah (1:00 PM, Pac-12 Network): You might not have too many more chances to watch Mark Helfrich coach the Ducks, and next week’s game against Oregon State will be the Civil War version of the Crapple Cup.

Duke at Pittsburgh (2:00 PM, ACC Network): Mike Krzyzewski vs. Kevin Stallings, the matchup we’ve been waiting for all our lives... oh, right, wrong sport.

Florida State at Syracuse (2:30 PM, ABC/ESPN2): ESPN is really making some questionable decisions about what games to put on national TV.

Texas at Kansas (2:30 PM, ABC/ESPN2): ESPN is really making some questionable decisions about what games to put on national TV.

Indiana at Michigan (2:30 PM, ESPN): ESPN is really making some questionable decisions about what games to put on national TV.

Missouri at Tennessee (2:30 PM, CBS): CBS is really making some questionable decisions about what games to put on national TV.

Washington State at Colorado (2:30 PM, FOX): Fox is... not making questionable decisions about what games to put on national TV. But who knew two months ago that this would be a top 25 matchup?

Buffalo at Western Michigan (2:30 PM, ESPNU): Will PJ Fleck be Vanderbilt’s next head coach? We can dream, right?

Virginia Tech at Notre Dame (2:30 PM, NBC): Okay, sure, why not?

Temple at Tulane (2:30 PM, ESPN3): WET HETS FACE THE GREEN WAVE.

Texas Tech at Iowa State (2:30 PM, FS1): Sure, why not?

Texas State at New Mexico State (3:00 PM, ESPN3): This is an actual football game.

Western Carolina at South Carolina (3:00 PM, SEC Network): As far as I know, there is no state called Western Carolina.

Austin Peay at Kentucky (3:30 PM, SEC Network): Can Kentucky win its sixth game and get bowl eligible oh who am I kidding Austin Peay has won one game in four years.

Stanford at Cal (4:30 PM, Pac-12 Network): VandyImport probably cares about this. Nobody else does.
