Washington Huskies

College Football Week 4 TV Schedule and Streaming Options

Here comes Week 4. There are several interesting games on tap, but not many that have a dramatically direct influence on the fate of your Washington Huskies should they fall one way versus another. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have reasons to be rooting for specific teams in some of these match-ups.

As always, the full TV and streaming schedule is included at the conclusion of this post. Before we jump to those tables, let’s take a look at games of interest across the nation.

Huskies Fans’ Rooting Guide: Week 4

WSU at USC (Friday night lights)

Rooting for: USC

The Trojans might have to be considered a practical underdog in this one given all of the tumult surrounding that program right now. That said, I still think it is in the interest of Husky fans to see USC take down a divisional rival and to put themselves back in the position of being a contender for the PAC 12 title game.

Plus, rooting against the Cougs just feels natural.

#2 Georgia at Mizzou

Rooting for: Mizzou

Believe it or not, Georgia ought to have its hands full going to Mizzou this weekend. The Tigers are among the nation’s top 10 in both rush defense and pass offense. That creates a strength on strength dynamic considering that Georgia is among the nation’s top 20 in both rush offense and pass defense. If Mizzou can avoid breakdowns on special teams, they might well put up more of a fight than people expect. That would be interesting.

Nebraska at #19 Michigan

Rooting for: Harbaugh misery

Just because rooting against Harbaugh just feels right.

#3 Clemson at Georgia Tech

Rooting for: Georgia Tech

Believe it or not, Dabo Swinney’s all-time record against GT since taking over at Clemson is a surprisingly competitive 5-3. It is true that Swinney has a pretty good streak going over Paul Johnson right now. But that just adds to the argument that it might be time for that triple option to rise up and steal one from a confident Clemson defense.

Still, that front seven is beastly. I wouldn’t count on being on upset alert tomorrow. But you can always root for it.

#17 TCU at Texas

Rooting for: One less Big 12 contender

TCU is a legit title contender in the Big 12. They gave Ohio State everything it could handle last week. But they still ended up with a loss.

If you are hanging on to hopes that UW might still have a path to the Playoff, then seeing the major title contenders from competitive conferences garner a second loss in their ledger is highly desirable. It would be ideal for us if TCU loses on the road to Texas – something that seems much more plausible after seeing the Longhorns dismantle USC in Austin last week – and then for the Horned Frogs to go on and win the Big 12 with two losses.

So, let’s root for that. Hook ‘em.

#22 Texas A&M at #1 Alabama

Rooting for: SEC chaos

This one is along the same lines of the previous pick. If you still think UW has a puncher’s chance at the playoff, you will want to be rooting for a situation where only one SEC team makes it to the CFP. To get there, you might be rooting for one of two scenarios.

Scenario 1 dictates that one SEC team (presumably Alabama) rises so far above all the rest that all the other contenders are not only a clear and distant second (or worse) finisher but that those other contenders don’t really look all that strong compared to the better teams in the league.

The Scenario 2 situation is the chaos scenario. In that one, everybody beats everybody such that even the champion looks just weak enough that justifying two entrants from the SEC seems biased and a stretch.

In my head, I think Scenario 1 is probably the better path. But, if I’m being honest, I think Scenario 2 would be more fun to watch with hardly any appreciable difference in affect on UW’s CFP chances. Thus, let’s hope that we have ourselves some chaos.

#7 Stanford at #20 Oregon

Rooting for: Quack Quack

The two biggest surprises to me so far in this PAC 12 season are a) Stanford’s 4th-ranked-in-the-nation defense and b) Oregon’s #8 nationally ranked scoring offense. One of these two things will give on Saturday.

For the record, I think that Stanford’s offense is the best unit of the four that will be on the field (excluding any assessment of special teams) and, thus, I expect Stanford to win in what might be a high-scoring affair.

However, I do think that Oregon is the more mortal team of the two and far more likely to drop a couple of in-conference games from here on out. As such, Stanford does seem like the more serious contender for the North Division title. Sticking them with a loss in Eugene would probably be a good thing for Washington.

Go Ducks.

Enjoy college football this weekend folks. This is your Friday night and Saturday open thread.
