Welcome back to another night of prime time college football with us here at Corn Nation.

Well, last nights Houston vs Tulsa game turned out better than I expected. Even with the Cougars regaining the lead in the second half and pulling away for a 40-22 win. Right when I think there will not be a good game, the college football elves give you a surprise.

Tonight we have another slate of games that do not come across as overly appetizing. I’m kind of hoping that Stanford gives Arizona State at least a scare or maybe even pull off an upset. I mean, it is PAC-12 After Dark. Fun stuff always happens with that. Other than that game, maybe Morgan State vs. Howard? I do not have much hopes for the other games.

Then again, it’s college football so we should appreciate what we have and watch it anyway. That is, unless you have a high school game to watch. Fridays are still technically for high school football.

Enjoy responsibly.
