College football TV schedule for Nov. 19-21













College football TV schedule for Nov. 19-21

THURSDAY
GameTime (TV)
East Carolina at Central Florida7:30 p.m. (ESPN)
Louisiana-Monroe at Texas State9:30 p.m. (ESPNU)
The NFL is giving us Jags-Titans, so it’s a perfect time for college football to unleash the Thursday night fury. Instead, we get four teams that are a combined 7-32. Just turn off your television or clear out your DVR or something.
FRIDAY
GameTime (TV)
Cincinnati at South Florida8 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)
Air Force at Boise State9:30 p.m. (ESPN2)
South Florida is 6-4 and is coming off a 21-point win over former critical darling Temple, which is saying something for a team that lost to Maryland this season. The Bulls and Cincinnati are both still alive for the AAC East title, though the Bearcats would need to win out and have Temple lose out.Air Force-Boise State could also be worth checking out, though the Broncos lost to New Mexico as a 30-point favorite last weekend. That’s bad,only the 17th time a favorite of so many points lost outright since 1980.
SATURDAY EARLY SHIFT
GameTime (TV)
Purdue at No. 5 IowaNoon (ESPN2)
Florida Atlantic at No. 8 FloridaNoon (SEC Network)

Iowa State at Kansas StateNoon (Fox Sports 1)
Syracuse at North Carolina State12:30 p.m. (WDCA-20)
Lafayette at Lehigh12:30 p.m. (MASN)
North Carolina travels to Virginia Tech, and here’s what the Tar Heelshave going for them: A lone, fluky loss to South Carolina on the first day of the season; zero turnovers over their past three games (only Air Force matches that number in terms of active turnover-free streaks); at least 50 points in three of their last five games; and a No. 3 national ranking in yards-per-play differential against FBS teams. Yes, North Carolina played two FCS teams this season but — ignoring that for a moment — doesn’t that sound like the resume of a College Football Playoff contender? The Heels will clinch the ACC Coastal should they beat the Hokies in Frank Beamer’s final home game, setting up a meeting with No. 1 Clemson. What would happen if UNC wins out and some nutty things happen elsewhere? Stranger things have happened.
SATURDAY SWING SHIFT
GameTime (TV)
Harvard at Yale2:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)
Chattanooga at No. 14 Florida State3 p.m. (CSN)
Wake Forest at No. 1 Clemson3:30 p.m. (ESPN2)

Louisville at Pittsburgh3:45 p.m. (ESPNews)
Charleston Southern at No. 2 Alabama4 p.m. (SEC Network)
Idaho at Auburn4 p.m. (SEC Network)
Hey, did you hear that LSU Coach Les Miles is on the hot seat because the Tigers have lost two games in a row? That is some #SECSpeed right there. But it appears to be true, and watch out if LSU loses to Ole Miss: Things are liable to get truly brutal for The Hat. The Rebels still have faint hopes of winning the SEC West, but they’d need to win out and have Alabama lose to Auburn in the Iron Bowl, and that seems unlikely. … “It’s do or die time” forOhio State against Michigan State, Buckeyes guard Pat Elflein told the AP this week. It’s kind of a weird statement from a player on a team that’s won 23 straight games, but then again, Ohio State hasn’t really beaten anyone of note yet this season (and some of those wins were not exactly dominant). Games this weekend against the Spartans and next against Michigan will decide where the Buckeyes end up.

Colorado at Washington State10:45 p.m. (ESPN2)
It gets no more Irish-American than Notre Dame playing Boston Collegeat Fenway Park in Boston. All they need is the Dropkick Murphys performing at halftime and it would basically be St. Patrick’s Day in November (the band is performing during a hurling event at Fenway on Sunday, however). The Eagles have the nation’s top-ranked defense but are just a horror show on offense: They’ve punted 76 times this season (for comparison’s sake, Baylor, North Carolina and Navy have punted 79 times combined). … The offenses belonging to Oklahoma State and Baylor are decidedly not horror shows: The Bears lead the nation in yards per game while the Cowboys rank 18th, and Vegas had the over-under for the game at 78 as of Wednesday afternoon. Oklahoma State has won 11 straight over Baylor in Stillwater dating to 1939, averaging 53.1 points in their eight home wins over the Bears since 2000.
