Some interesting games coming up on the ESPN Family of Networks for Week 7. The annual Michigan-Michigan State game takes place in East Lansing on ESPN at noon ET. Oklahoma State takes on Texas on ABC at 3:30 p.m. and because ABC has NASCAR Sprint Cup from Charlotte, NC in primetime, it moves the top announcing team of Brent Musburger, Kirk Herbstreit and Erin Andrews to Eugene, OR for a rare late night game for the trio as the Oregon Ducks host the Arizona State Sun Devils at 10:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.
With that, it means that College GameDay will be in Oregon once again. I can also go on about the Oregon cheerleaders, but I won’t.
Here’s the schedule for Week 7 on the ESPN Fam.
