A look at games that might pique your interest

So, uhh... this is a straight garbage week of games nationally. Lousy football all around. I mean, there are likely to be some exceptionally entertaining games that emerge from the heap, but on the surface... thhwwwpppppp. Garbage.

The SEC (and UNC-CH) are doing their annual beatdown-for-pay of D1-AA/FCS opponents (c’mon, Catamounts!). Also, there are more 1- or 2-win matchups going on than anyone would like. That makes for bad football.

There are a few good games, though, including the Syracuse vs Notre Dame game at Yankee Stadium and the Cincinnati @ Central Florida game. Plus there’s always the chance that Duke knocks off Clemson... Heh. I make myself laugh sometimes.

Anyways, as always, I’ve tried to wade through the heavy seas of awful matchups to find those that might interest you... and even some of those are still awful. So here are some could-be interesting games to watch among the junk that’ll be on TV all weekend. Enjoy!
