College football on TV for Saturday (Nov. 9)

Are you ready for the big one? That’s right, No. 1 LSU vs. No. 2 Alabama. (That’s via the AP college football poll). Or, if you prefer, No. 2 LSU vs. No. 3 Alabama. (That’s via the College Football Playoff rankings.) We’re talking 3:30 p.m. when CBS’s Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson do all the talking.

College football’s biggest game to date takes place Saturday in Tuscaloosa, with none other than Donald Trump in attendance. The winner is all but a shoo-in to take the SEC West and get a leg up on a spot in the CFP final four.

As for other games between ranked teams on Saturday, No. 5 Penn State travels to Minneapolis to play No. 13 Minnesota, led by quarterback and former Ryle High School star Tanner Morgan. That’s a noon start on ABC.

No. 18 Iowa is at No. 16 Wisconsin for a 4 p.m. kickoff on Fox. Both teams are 6-2 overall, including 3-2 in the Big Ten, and hoping that the Golden Gophers, first in the Big Ten West, won’t be able to handle Penn State.

As for Kentucky-Tennessee, that’s a 7:30 p.m. start on the SEC Network. Tom Hart, Jordan Rodgers and Cole Cubelic make a return trip to their old stomping grounds at Kroger Field.
