College football TV schedule and Saturday games open thread

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Here's the orange-tinted college football TV schedule for Vols fans and the place for you to discuss the day's action with other RTT community members using the best commenting system on the internet.

Hey, the Tennessee game is on at noon, so WAKE UP ALREADY. And start looking for that channel because you have no idea where FSN is and you have way too many channels, man. And you should spend the following four hours devoting some serious thought to which of #1 Alabama at #5 LSU, #4 Oregon at #17 USC, and #24 Okie State at #2 Kansas State you're going to watch BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL ON AT THE SAME TIME DURGNUBIT. Then again, Oregon may be up by 40 over Lane Kiffin's team by the time the Bammers get their first whiff of corndogs. And who cares about Kansas State? Not even Kansas State cares about Kansas State even when they're #2 in the nation. Speaking as a retailer with some Wildcat product, nobody wants them in the BCS National Championship. So Go Pokes! Anyway, this looks like a pretty good day of football, so enjoy!

As always, the color codes are based loosely on's Control Your Remote schema with an additional orange category for special relevance to Vols fans. The green, blue, and brown games are the Control Your Remote categories of First Choice (in green), "Last Button" Options (in blue), and Know the (Channel) Numbers (in brown). Where there are two games of the same color in a single time block, the one on top is deemed most important.

So here's your schedule and your RTT Non-UT games open thread. The Vols game thread will go live at 11:00, and then we'll kick it back here for the rest of the day. Enjoy!
