Fresno State vs. Ole Miss 2015: Game time, how to watch, and other games of note

New, 141 comments

IT'S WEEK 2 OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2015 AND OLE MISS INVITES THE FRESNO STATE BULLDOGS TO THE VAUGHT FOR A MISSISSIPPI MAULING.

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

If UT Martin is level one and Fresno State is level two, that makes Alabama the final boss, right? Pretty sure that's the way it works. Anyway, Saturday's throwdown in Oxford brings to town the not-from-Starkville-or-Athens Bulldogs, who share strikingly similar colors with Ole Miss, though for wildly divergent reasons.

Whether you're watching from the glorious swell of Vaught-Hemingway or from the drunken intimacy of Penn Quarter Tavern in D.C. or from your hangover-stupor couch spot, the Rebs' week two start time offers a reprieve from the hazy scramble that is an 11:00 a.m. Saturday kickoff. Not that a 2:30 p.m. start should lull you into some false sense of aimless weekend apathy; on the contrary, our very own smeargle demands that you Grove early and Grove often and while you're Groving hit RCR up on Twitter because we wanna see those #GroveCup digs, y'all. It's for science.

As will be the case every week, this space apprises you of the Rebels' game-time and television information as well as a handful of other games worth paying attention to after Fresno State eventually implodes.

Other games of interest

No. 19 Oklahoma (1-0; 0-0 Big 12) at No. 23 Tennessee (1-0; 0-0 SEC)

This week's conference whip-around pondered -- if only for a vague moment -- whether Rocky Top had legs enough to take a serious run at the SEC East. They almost certainly do not and Bob Stoops will almost certainly douse whatever nascent inklings Vols' fans might have about Georgia Dome tickets in December. Still, should Tennessee pull this one off, we should all rest happy knowing that we won't hear the end of it in the CFB echo chamber until, well, they finally self-destruct against Florida.

When: 5 p.m. CT

No. 7 Oregon (1-0; 0-0 Pac 12) at No. 5 Michigan State (1-0; 0-0 Big 10)

Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. took a nasty, nasty shot to the head in the Ducks' opener against Eastern Washington last week, but on Monday the star trigger man inexplicably said that he's ready to go for Saturday's heavyweight bout with Sparty. That plan sounds just crazy enough to argue vigorously for real head trauma, and it'd be surprising to see Vernon under center in East Lansing.

When: 7 p.m. CT
TV: ABC

No. 14 LSU (0-0; 0-0 SEC) at No. 25 Mississippi State (1-0; 0-0 SEC)

How better to really punch home that blackout drunk you've been working on through Oklahoma-Tennessee than a laughably late nightcap featuring Les "triple shot espresso" Miles against Dan "Yeezys" Mullen to the tune of 40,000 blinding cowbells in perfect harmony? This four-day work week was blasted beyond all recognition from the get-go, so why not open yet another bottle of Bulleit Rye and just let it ride, man? The Rad Hatter will have plenty of joe on the burner to bring you back around should you feel yourself slipping, and hell, whatever the outcome here there ain't a Schlitz's chance in Athens you're gonna remember what took place anyway.
