2012 College Football TV Schedule Week 4: TV Listings for the Upcoming Week

This week, there will be teams that have been sneaking by with easy opponents that will finally be tested against a conference opponent; and that makes you, the college football viewer, a winner because there will be a ton to watch on TV.

Welcome back to another week of the ultimate college football television guide. Once again, I will be your TV guide as to where you can find some of the top games this week. 

However, like always, before we can move forward we must take a step back and reflect on the week that just passed us by. 

Biggest Winners and Losers of the week:

Recently, I did a piece that gave five winners and losers from the previous week. 

If you’d like to view that you can click here. 

However, I have found two more winners and one loser that were not covered in that piece and I’d like to brush over them quickly. 

 

Winner: Pennsylvania BCS Schools

Coming into the week the University of Pittsburgh and Penn State were winless. However, both rose to the occasion in front of their home fans with two amazing performances. 

Penn State blew out Navy, 34-7; while Pittsburgh—who came into their game against Virginia Tech as a heavy underdog—shocked the Hokies 35-17. 

For the first time in three weeks, it was a great Saturday in the Keystone State. 

 

Loser: Tyler Wilson’s teammates

Yikes, did you all see Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson’s comments after the Razorbacks loss to Alabama this weekend? 

Wilson was held out of Saturday’s game because of a shoulder injury that he suffered during their loss to Louisiana-Monroe. During the game, as Arkansas’ offense was getting decimated by Alabama’s defense, you could see Wilson doing his best Jay Cutler angry face impression. 

After the game, as you can see in the video, Wilson comes in, rips his teammates and leaves. 

It would have been better if he would have paced a few times—like Chris Rock during standup—said his piece, dropped the microphone and then walked out. 

 

Winner: No. 6 California University of PA staying undefeated

The final winner is the Cal U Vulcans keeping their perfect season alive with another win this week over conference foe, Edinboro: 24-14. 

With the win, they improved their rankings in the Division-II polls to No. 6 in the nation. 

Next week, Cal U takes on their rival, Indiana (PA) in the Coal Bowl at home. This will be a test to see if this Vulcan team can go deep in the Division-II playoffs this year. 

 

Sign Off:

Okay, that’s enough rambling from me this week. Below you’ll find where and when you can find college football on television or online this week. 

Remember all times are eastern standard time zone, and all rankings are from the Associated Press poll. 

Till next week, you couch potatoes.
