It’s nice and sunny outside my motel window here in Oakland as I type this, and it looks like it’ll be good conditions for the game tonight.
There isn’t a Rose Bowl or anything on the line. But all games in a college football season are all big in their own way, and this one is no exception — 5-4 and a road win will look paint a lot different picture of where the rest of the season is headed than 4-5.
I’ll plan again on a pre-game chat from the stadium around 4:30 p.m.
For now, some links. …
