Orange-hued college football TV schedule

In addition to what is the latest installment of The Most Important Game of Derek Dooley's Career, there are several big games on TV this weekend. Here's the schedule, tweaked for Vols fans.

We're bumping this to the SBNU Cover so it can serve as today's Non-UT games open thread. Enjoy!

This week's orange-tinted college football TV schedule kicks off with a sneak peek at Troy tonight at 7:30 on ESPNU. Saturday features four top 25 matchups, including the big one between #3 South Carolina and #9 LSU at 8:00 PM on ESPN, but we'll only be watching that until Tennessee kicks at 9:00 PM on ESPN2. There's also the Red River Whatever at noon on ABC.

As always, the color codes are based loosely on SBNation.com's Control Your Remote schematica with an additional category for special relevance to Vols fans. The orange games are games involving important/future opponents. 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.
