Arizona State at Colorado 8:00 p.m. ESPN

Will it help you to feel better about yourself as a Husker fan if you can watch Colorado get slaughtered in front of a national audience, or are you so over them that their pain won't register anymore? The spread is Arizona State by 23 and Colorado has never beaten the Sun Devils... although they've only played three previous times.

The game you should watch is the early game - the Hilltoppers vs the Trojans. Troy has quite an edge on winning over Western Kentucky, but Willie Taggart has those Hilltoppers playing good football. It's not the whiz-bang zooom of a spread offense, but maybe it's time for a change of pace.

Troy is going to throw the ball around. Oh, hell, who am I kidding. It's not like I know much about Troy, but I can tell you this. Willie Taggart came into Western Kentucky, took a lost, disoriented program and has built it into a winner. That's pretty cool.

Music tonight by the angst of my youth. It's generally expressive of how I feel this week.
