Clemson vs. App St: How to Watch

New, 2 comments

If you can't be in Death Valley this weekend, here's how you can watch your Tigers, and all those other teams, from the comfort of your own home.

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

It was good to see the Tigers back in action last week. I feel a little better about our team, but it's hard to be too confident when you only have a win against Wofford on your resume. I'm still mourning the injury to Mike Williams and I fear it will have a bigger impact than most are expecting. Hopefully, our offense can prove me wrong and show that they still have plenty of firepower this week. App St should push us a little harder, but this ought to be another easy win and a good opportunity to get second and third string guys a lot of reps. Here's how to watch if you can't make it to Clemson today.

App St at #12 Clemson

Kickoff at 12:30 EST

TV: ACCN Affiliates in your area can be found here. It will also be broadcast on ESPN3, so make sure you've hacked your neighbor's wireless and bummed your Grandma's cable log-in by Saturday.

The rest of Week 1 went about as planned. The biggest surprise was the big upset of the darlings of the Pac 12. I did not foresee Texas A&M jumping up and biting ASU the way they did, but I can't say I wasn't pleased. Louisville doesn't scare me as much as they did to start the year, but Notre Dame was impressive. I don't think Texas is very good, but the Irish just throttled them. I'm already having nightmares of Zaire running free in our secondary.

The lineup this week is even worse than last week. There are only a handful of games that interest me. If I weren't getting married today, these are the games I would watch.

#9 Notre Dame v. Virginia

Kickoff at 3:30 EST

TV: ABC

I would peek in at this game early to see Zaire in action again. Virginia shouldn't put up much of a struggle, so if you don't tune in early, you're likely to see nothing but backups in the game for the Irish. ND 41 – UVA 17

#19 OU at #23 UT

Kickoff at 6:00 EST

TV: ESPN

It's a rare early season matchup of ranked teams. Plus, it's a unique non-conference pairing that should give commentators a ton to talk about. If the Big 12 wants to avoid being left out of odd playoff scenarios again, they need their member schools to win games like this. I have tons of friends on both sides of this game, so I will have fun ragging whichever team loses. I don't know that I buy Tennessee as a top 25 team and OU might be underrated at #19. OU 30 – UT 20

#7 Oregon at #5 Mich St

Kickoff at 8:00 EST

TV: ABC

The first top ten matchup of the season. Another intriguing non-conference matchup. This one could be a lot of fun or it could be a complete blowout. I never know what to expect in games where styles and philosophies are so completely opposed to one another. Will Oregon run Sparty off the field? Or will Mich St pound those little guys from Oregon into the dirt? Oregon may very well win going away. But the temperature is dropping significantly this weekend up here in the Midwest, and maybe that's the slight advantage Mich St needs to come out on top. MSU 27 – ORE 24

#14 LSU at #25 Miss St

Kickoff at 9:15 EST

TV: ESPN

The first "marquee" SEC matchup. I put that in quotes because I know absolutely nothing about either of these teams. I assume that LSU, like Alabama, is a top 5–10 team year in and year out at this point. They're "elite" in my mind, and, therefore, they get the benefit of the doubt. Miss St is on the other end of the spectrum. It was hard for me to believe they were as good as their ranking last year. Seeing them hanging around the edge of the top 25 feels more natural to me. I admit that I'm going off of perception and not any sort of real analysis of the current teams. LSU 31 – Miss St 24
