Welcome to Black Friday. If you are not participating in retail madness, maybe you are watching some college football. It's a Cal football gameday today as the Bears close the regular season at Arizona State, but we have all day to wait until tonight's 7:15 pm PST kickoff in Tempe. Until then, there are enough games on TV to keep you interested. Among the more interesting (all times Pacific):
- Houston at Tulsa (9:00 am, FSN): The Cougs try to stay undefeated and crash the BCS pah-tay.
- Iowa at Nebraska (9:00 am, ABC): For years, I thought of the Friday after Thanksgiving as Nebraska vs. Colorado. But that old Big XII rivalry is no more. Instead, we have a Big1T2en battle of the corn states. So this conference realignment stuff feels real today! And get this: this one is dubbed "The Heroes Game," complete with The Heroes Trophy! Who doesn't want to watch that?!?
- Arkansas at LSU (11:30 am, CBS): This is the headliner game of the day. Top-ranked LSU tries to stay undefeated against third-ranked Arkansas. This should be a good one.
- Colorado at Utah (12:30 pm, FSN): A Pac-12 "rivalry" game. Utah has the Pac-12 South Division championship still in its sights. This game is important to us because if Utah loses, UCLA clinches the Pac-12 South, and ASU has nothing to play for other than bowl positioning tonight.
- Pittsburgh at West Virginia (4:00 pm, ESPN): This is the Backyard Brawl! And it's at night. In Morgantown. The crowd will be...lubricated.
