Like Ian Mackaye once wrote, function is the key.
As far back as I remember, we've haven't been without a morning game on the schedule during the non-conference season. This week, we are to yet again be the patient boys that Fugazi once mentioned. Everybody else is moving, and yet we still remain.
But you know what? That's okay. I'm here. And I'm going to guide you through the early morning schedule. On paper? It's not the strongest of weeks, but you know the thing about all that.
It's when a week seems bad that the upsets start happening. See? Last week. The Badgers would have had some level of national shame but for a scrappy kid named Kolton Browning.
But until the Badgers play the Aggies, you can do three things. One, enjoy some nice Washington DC punk. Two, jump down and read a post regarding the TV schedule from our college football sensei Peter Bean. And three? Join me as we watch the morning slate of games.
There's no shortage of garbage out there on the Week 3 schedule, which starts slow but builds momentum throughout the day, reaching a crescendo with a compelling slate of evening games, including Florida at Tennessee, USC at Stanford, Notre Dame at Michigan State, and Texas at Ole Miss. Oh, and hello rivalry: BYU and Utah kick off the hate in 2012.
Here are your Week 3 TV listings, point spreads, and game day links for today's college football action.

College Football Rootability attempts to sort out the most likable teams in the weekend's given matchups for the uninvested fan. It makes little sense, but neither does college football. And we love it so.
Loving USC to roll Stanford tonight? Are you willing to lay 8.5 points with a road team? Before you put money down, compare point spreads and game totals from online and Vegas-based sports books, updating live in real time.
