Week 11 college football Saturday viewing guide and Old Fashioned cocktail discussion thread

Only three ranked vs. ranked matchups in Week 11 make a low-key remedy for Week 10's insanity.

Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

Ole Miss' bye week feels almost seven or 14 days too late. The Rebels played 10 Saturdays in a row and on the tenth of those Saturdays they went to overtime and lost. That is a tremendous amount of continuous football to get up for, not to mention the proverbial moving of goalposts in the final leg of that marathon. Hugh Freeze probably has some fishing to catch up on.

A couple of interesting SEC games kick off early in the day, but your viewing options throughout the afternoon and night are myriad and sundry. Or you could just continue your NCAA hoops kickoff weekend and experiment with Old Fashioned mixologies (it's just a rind's zest of orange and light rub around the tumbler's rim, nothing more, by the way).

Games of note:

Georgia at Auburn

Have you ever wondered what two blind elephants doing it looks like but were too afraid to Google search? Georgia and Auburn play every year and this game used to be sort of an important rivalry, insofar as assault and battery was committed both on the field of play and in the tailgate scene. Nowadays, however, the Bulldogs and the Tigers work splendidly as an early afternoon purgative treatment.

No. 11 Florida at South Carolina

If Georgia and Auburn are too much for your hangover to handle, at least one team will be demonstrating actual football execution in Columbia.

No. 2 Alabama at No. 17 Mississippi State

The Tide and Bulldogs play in Starkville, but it's hard to see this one living up to the hype surrounding it. Bama by three touchdowns.

No. 14 Michigan at Indiana

No. 21 Memphis at No. 24 Houston

Because Memphis hasn't marauded over and through your liver enough this season, tune in to watch the Tigers in blue combine with Houston for 160 points, 10 turnovers and no field goals.

Arkansas at No. 9 LSU

How nauseatingly bittersweet would it be to watch Les Miles hang 60 points on BERT? It'd be like an Old Fashioned with too much muddled sugar, I think: deceptively tasty to your younger self, before you really understood the world and all the beautiful things in it. Then again, what if Bielema's boys somehow legged one out in Death -- alright not going to finish that sentence. LSU by two touchdowns.

No. 12 Oklahoma at No. 6 Baylor

A good opportunity for Art Briles to put his coaching and players where last year's mouth was and remain closely connected to the CFP group of four. This'll be a good one.

Game Time: 7 p.m. CT
TV: ABC

Minnesota at No. 5 Iowa

Iowa's helium-fueled altitude in the College Football Playoff rankings lit a fire under the ass of every sportswriter in the country. To that end, the Hawkeyes now find themselves in the unenviable position of passing the "eye test" every week from now until their eventual, inexplicable loss to Nebraska in Lincoln.
