There is not a whole lot happening of interest before Alabama starts at 2:30. NC State might put up enough resistance to make the Clemson game interesting for a few quarters. Vandy and Georgia is the only SEC game, but its highly unlikely we see the Commodores put up much of a fight all, though it will be highly entertaining if they do.

The best game to watch is probably the Georgia Southern vs Georgia Tech. You’ll get to watch two of the best triple option programs go head to head. The triple offense is mesmerizing to watch (to me, anyway), and if you’re a fan of unique football, especially in a world of spread offenses, this is the game for you.

In the mean time, get some lunch. Prepare your nachos and your favorite chair. Prepare your hatred. Use every pregame ritual for luck that you have. Alabama will be taking on Tennessee and the Tide MUST continue the win streak.
