Tonight on the Tube: College Football, College Football and More College Football

Wilson NCAA Official FootballToday there are seven different college football games where both teams are ranked in the Top 25. That is a slew of possibly great games. It is resulting in what ESPN and others are calling “Separation Saturday” as the winning teams will put themselves in the drivers seat and the losers will have a tough row-to-hoe to get back in the championship hunt. What game will you be watching today? Besides the local match up here of Fresno State at Washington, I will be taking a look at Michigan at Notre Dame. Today is the One Year Anniversary of Tonight on the Tube. The 366th in a row of daily picks for what is worth watching each night on the tube and the first on the way to two years. Monday is when the TV season really gets underway. For a look at what is in store check out the Ultimate Guide to the Fall 2006 TV Schedule.
