Tonight, we get the one and only Spurrier, selflessly leading us out of the darkness, into the bright, new college football season. He's the hero we all need and deserve. The game kicks off at 6:00 PM ET on ESPN. The odds makers have South Carolina favored by 2 (click the link for all odds this weekend) . So, basically a coin flip. FUN!
Your other ACC scouting opportunities aren't great. Tonight we have Duke at Tulane at 9:30 PM, Elon at Wake Forest at 7 PM, and Alcorn St. at Georgia Tech at 7:30 PM. The biggest take away from those three games is, please don't lose ACC.
The other games that you will actually want to watch tonight are TCU at Minnesota at 9 PM and Michigan at Utah at 8:30 PM. TCU is ranked second in the country. We'll get an opportunity to see if they are a serious contender for the playoffs. And Michigan, well, they went out and got some coach named Jim Harbaugh. Michigan wants to be a respectable program again and they are willing to pay for it.
