Three games, mighty fine ones at that, on tap tonight.

Tonight's Games

No. 22 Temple at East Carolina: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN2 - Go Temple, keep boosting Penn State's strength of schedule. That still matters, right?

Georgia Southern at Appalachian State: 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU - A Fun Belt rivalry game with a possible New Year's Day bowl on the line? You are definitely watching this game, don't try to fight it.

No. 20 Cal at UCLA: 9:00 p.m. ET, ESPN - A decent West coast start time and Jared Goff's Bear Raid offense. Sounds delightful. Unlike the last big game in Rose Bowl, America will definitely win tonight (h8 u, Mexico).

Editor emeritus Mike Pettigano vaults into first place with a 6-0 week. Devon got blinded by his optimism as usual and picked Penn State. With a 4-2 week Noel is inching towards the 50-win club. He's only eight games back of Eli for last place.
