Who else is jonesin' for some college football? Who else is up at 8AM today just to watch the first bowl game, no matter who's playing? Am I the only crazy-obsessed person around here?
For some info on all of today's games, check out Yellow Fever's Bowl Game Blowout! I.
First up: Wake Forest vs. Navy in the inaugural EagleBank Bowl (lol wut?) at 8AM this morning on ESPN.
Then: Colorado State vs. Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl at 11:30AM on ESPN.
Followed by: Memphis vs. South Florida in the inaugural magicJack St. Petersburg Bowl at 1:30PM on ESPN2. When I first heard of this bowl game, I wondered why they were holding a bowl game in Russia; was anyone else confused?
Take a break at 3PM and switch over to CSN Bay Area +, where Cal Basketball resumes after its break for finals to take on the Nevada Wolfpack.
Finally: #16 BYU vs. Arizona in the Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl at 5PM on ESPN.
EDIT: Also, if you haven't heard, Cal completed its 2009 football schedule with a home game vs. Eastern Washington on September 12. As of now, the schedule features 12 straight weeks of football -- no BYE weeks. From the article:
Cal will try to make adjustments, but Tedford has said he'd like to keep the Big Game as the traditional season-ender.
As of now, the schedule stands as follows:
Sept. 5 - Maryland
Sept. 12 - Eastern Washington
Sept. 19 - at Minnesota
Sept. 26 - at Oregon
Oct. 3 - USC
Oct. 10 - at Washington
Oct. 17 - at UCLA
Oct. 24 - Washington State
Oct. 31 - at Arizona State
Nov. 7 - Oregon State
Nov. 14 - Arizona
Nov. 21 - at Stanford
