The college football TV schedule 2010 reaches a climax today. Although the college football TV schedule 2010 is not over yet, today’s lineup is the last one of its kind for the season. For 14 weeks, fans and audiences have huddled around every Saturday, for wall-to-wall coverage. However, this is the last day of action before the bowls, and therefore the last big Saturday of the year. As such, today’s college football TV schedule is the climax of the BCS race, with the two biggest games on at the same time.
There are other games and BCS berths to settle first, however. At noon, the much maligned Big East will start narrowing down its race, as Pitt and West Virginia try to stay alive. The Mountaineers take on Rutgers on ABC, while the Panthers face Cincinnati on ESPN 2. If things go well for them, they will still be alive when UConn plays tonight.
Yet the big events on the college football TV schedule 2010 today take place in the mid-afternoon. Oregon and Auburn will have the BCS national title game settled – or thrown into massive controversy – by around 7:30 pm. At 3:30, the Ducks get their shot to clinch against arch-rival Oregon State on ABC.
At 4 pm, Auburn gets their shot to lock up a bid, in the SEC championship game vs South Carolina on CBS. Fans will be flipping back and forth on these games – especially TCU fans – to see if an upset can really happen. If so, then controversy will reign all through tonight and tomorrow.
After these games are settled, there are still a few others on the college football TV schedule 2010 to get through. In the past, the Big 12 title game usually had massive BCS implications, but it is not the case this time. As Oregon and Auburn get finished, Nebraska and Oklahoma will kick off the last Big 12 championship before realignment, at 8 pm on ABC.
Meanwhile, the ACC has its own overlooked title game, with Virginia Tech taking on Florida State at 7:45 on ESPN. At 8 pm, the Big East will have finally selected a winner by default, if Connecticut can defeat South Florida on ESPN 2. For West Coast viewers, USC and UCLA close things out at 10:30 pm est on Fox Sports Net.
After today’s college football TV schedule, the 2010 regular season will be over – save for next week’s Army-Navy game. Therefore, the stakes are high, as four BCS berths will be decided, and two national championship slots will be set in stone – assuming Oregon and Auburn win.
