Week 12 College Football Schedule and Open Thread

With bonus Division II, Division III, and NAIA playoffs!

Oregon State University vs University of Oregon Set Number: X159011 TK1

This is SoCon Saturday, and College GameDay is at App State-James Madison — where I am sure they will have a big feature about how “stupid” the NCAA reclassification rule is just because JMU is 10-0 but has to wait to see if there aren’t enough 6-6 teams for all of the bowl slots to be filled (there won’t be.) Which also means that they’ll probably play Western Kentucky in the Cure Bowl or whatever, instead of the Fiesta Bowl or something. Whatever. Cry more.

GameDay’s other option was to go to the actual biggest game of the day, Washington-Oregon State at Reser Stadium (pictured above), but that invited the possibility (bad for GameDay, good for all of us) that the GameDay crew would have gotten booed by the local crowd for their (correct) perception that ESPN played a role in screwing over Oregon State by getting the Big 12 to knife the Pac-12, amongst other things. That would have been fun for everyone, but sadly, ESPN did not do that.

(You’ll also notice, of course, that the Pac-12 has three games on broadcast networks and that doesn’t even include what should be a good game between Utah and Arizona. Somehow, this league wasn’t viable.)

In light of the bad FBS schedule, may I direct your attention to the fact that Division II, Division III, and the NAIA all start their playoffs this week. You’re welcome.
