College Open Thread: November 9

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

One thread to rule them all.

We're monothreading it today. Mama 3k's in town, so I have to eat enough for the hibernation season that awaits. What? Humans don't hibernate? Oh child, you have much to learn...

#2 Florida St. at Wake Forest (12:00 p.m., ABC)

#8 Missouri at Kentucky (12:00 p.m., ESPNU)

#9 Auburn at Tennessee (12:00 p.m., ESPN)

Um...just pick one and roll. The walk-in schedule this morning isn't offering much. so you've got watered down options here.

Famous Jameis and a host of NFL-ready options? Can't fault you there. Missouri? Coming off a big win over Tennessee and looking at Ole Miss and Texas A&M to finish, this is as trappy as games get. I can see the appeal. And Auburn has slowly but surely slipped its way into the top 10 as the little SEC team that could (though Mizzou has a claim to that title as well). They've got a Tennessee-Georgia-Alabama trifecta to close out, so seeing how they look going into that is worth any college fans' time. Draft-wise? I'd tell Rams fans either to get in on FSU or Tennessee. But if you're grabbing one of these at the expense of tonight's marquee matchup, you're doing this wrong.

Mississippi St. at #15 Texas A&M (3:30 p.m., CBS)

Rams fans need to get a look at the Aggies' tackles ASAP. Jake Matthews is riding the hype off of his decision to return after gaining some 2013 draft scrutiny, but RT Cedric Ogbuehi might end up being the higher pick. No joke. And if you have somehow avoided catching WR Mike Evans on the tail end of the Johnny Manziel train, you're missing out.

Backup: Nebraska at Michigan (3:30 p.m., ABC)

Honestly, I might grab this one just to get a look at Michigan's interior offensive line. Two freshmen and a sophomore? This could be some serious 2016 NFL Draft stock setting here. It helps that storyline that Nebraska's rolling with two sophomore starters on their D-line. The future is now (nonsensical cliche point!).

#13 LSU at #1 Alabama (8:00 p.m., CBS)
