The college football TV schedule 2010 has had big weeks this year. Yet the college football TV schedule for Week 11 hasn’t drawn that much hype. Of course, there isn’t much that could overshadow the Cam Newton scandal these days, not even the BCS races. Newton will likely be seen in action anyway, although the scandal may be a bigger opponent for him than Georgia. In the meantime, the rest of the college football TV schedule 2010 on Week 11 doesn’t have a lot of bigger showdowns.
The noon slate of games has few major battles, as usual. ESPN has Iowa trying to stay in the Big Ten race against Northwestern, while Wisconsin looks to keep pace on ESPN 2 against Indiana. As for the actual Big Ten network, it is split between Michigan vs Purdue, and Minnesota vs Illinois.
In most weeks, the college football TV schedule 2010 has had major showdowns and top 25 battles later in the day. But for Week 11, most of the top 25 teams are facing unranked opponents and big underdogs instead.
At 2:30 pm on NBC, Utah heads to Notre Dame, as the Utes attempt to take their frustration for the TCU blowout out on the reeling Irish. Afterwards, the 3:30 slate has Penn State vs Ohio State as the headline game on ABC. But even this matchup isn’t as hyped as usual, as the Buckeyes are more than two touchdown favorites.
The major game on the college football TV schedule for Week 11 may have little to do with the actual matchup. Auburn would have been expected to clobber Georgia, yet the Cam Newton scandals have thrown that into question.
Newton wasn’t thrown off his game last week, but that was against Chattanooga, and that was at the mere beginning of this ordeal. Therefore, there is a lot more doubt on whether Auburn can take care of business, but CBS will show the action either way at 3:30.
TCU would benefit from an Auburn slipup, but they will be busy against San Diego State at 4 pm on Versus. Yet the night portion of the college football schedule on Week 11 has a lack of BCS contenders.
ESPN does have a game that could impact things down the line, as South Carolina and Florida play for the SEC East title – and a possible right to face Auburn – at 7:15. Over on ESPN 2, Alabama faces Mississippi State, as the Tide start life outside the BCS title chase. On ABC, Oklahoma State looks to maintain their Big 12 North lead against Texas, while West Coast viewers see USC visit Arizona.
Will the actual games on today’s college football TV schedule 2010 break Newton’s monopoly on the news – or cement it even further? With no major top 25 clashes this Saturday, something big must happen to make up for it.
