Saturday Viewing Guide: September 20

We know you have a choice of where to go when letting people tell you what to watch every college football Saturday.

We appreciate you always choosing Pitchfork Nation. And because of that, we're giving you an extra special gift in the viewing guide.

The Morning Slate
I'm serious. Give yourself a nice little breather. Go out and get banged up a little Friday night and then catch some extra Z's. But seriously. Your choices are East Carolina/N.C. State, Iowa/Pittsburgh, Central Florida/Boston College and Akron/Army. You'll do yourself well for an extra two hours of sleep. You're welcome.

During Your Tailgate
Arizona Wildcats at UCLA Bruins (12:00 PM, FSN): It's the only conference matchup of the weekend, so it might be worth a glimpse. Plus, all those outside observers of the Pac-10 who said that the Wildcats and Bruins were pleasant surprises early on can now see that they're both just middling teams.

#4 Florida Gators at Tennessee Volunteers (12:30 PM, CBS): The first of two mighty SEC collisions on the day. Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin will set out to prove that they should be up in the top two of each poll while a win for Rocky Top might vault them back into the top 25 after their season opening loss to UCLA.

Set The TiVo (while you're at ASU/Georgia)
#18 Wake Forest Demon Deacons at #24 Florida State Seminoles (4:00 PM, ESPN 2): Wake Forest has never beaten Florida State three times in a row and they'll have the chance in Tallahassee this weekend. They can also solidify themselves as the clear favorite to win the sad-sack ACC. For Florida State, a win can at least make pollsters start to think that the 'Noles are a national player again.

#6 LSU Tigers at #10 Auburn Tigers (4:45 PM, ESPN): Last year's matchup of Tigers in Baton Rouge was one for ESPN Classic. In fact, it was on that channel mere hours after it's original completion. We all got burned by that USC/Ohio State dud last week, so hopefully this is the top-10 matchup everyone thinks it is. Stone cold lock: Auburn scores more than 3.
