Recommended viewing schedule for Saturday

If you're anything like us, you'll be spending Saturday with your feet kicked up enjoying week four of the college football season (as long as you don't have a game of your own).

This weekend might be one of the rare Saturdays over the next few weeks that we're all able give our remotes some R&R by not flipping from game to game every two minutes, and while their may not be type of headline games that we had the first three weekends of the season, there's still a solid lineup of games on tap for the weekend.

Here's a look at what we'll be looking at in each time slot throughout Saturday. I have tried to structure this preferred watch list by maximizing the rest time for your TV remote.

12:00 EST - North Carolina at Georgia Tech (ESPN): These two teams have combined for more than 50 points in each of the last three meetings. Georgia Tech comes into this one averaging 54 points by themselves, so don't expect the trend of the two teams combining for 50 to be broken Saturday.

3:30 EST - Michigan State at Notre Dame (NBC): Over the last 13 meetings between these two schools nine of them have been decided by a touchdown or less. On eight different occasions the winning score came late in the fourth quarter or overtime. That's plenty reason to tune into NBC at 3:30 and set the remote down for a few hours.

7:00 EST - Arizona State at Stanford (FOX): This is the first ever meeting between these two teams when each is ranked in the top 25. That alone should be reason enough.

7:45 EST - Auburn at LSU (ESPN): Much like the MSU-ND game, if past history is any indication this is going to be a close one. 7 of the last 9 games (and 14 of the last 23) have been decided by seven points or less. The scale does tip in LSU's favor though, as 12 of the last 14 winners of this one have been the home team.

10:15 EST - Utah at BYU (ESPN2): Last year this game ended in a 24-21 score with Utah coming out on top. However, BYU had three chances to kick a field goal to tie the game...and if you needed a reminder of how this one ended last year, here it is.
