On Saturday evening, the Big Ten will have Michigan at No. 12 Iowa playing on ABC. Over on CBS, the SEC will have No. 1 Florida at No. 4 LSU. Both games start at eight o'clock. Who are you going to watch, Kinnick Stadium at night or Tiger Stadium under the lights? 

Both games are high profile and important conference battles. You have a combined 18-1 record among the four teams playing. You have the best team in college football, the privilege of watching night games at Tiger and Kinnick stadium, and you have four great coaches going head-to-head. 

Meyer v. Miles, Ferentz v. Rodriguez.

Florida may be without Tim Tebow; he is a game-time decision according to Urban Meyer. I guarantee that LSU wants him to play. It's not Florida without Tebow, right?

Brantley is supposedly an excellent backup; he was the Gatorade player of the year in 2006. Will Tebow be able to play, citing noise a big concern for Tebow, following his concussion nearly two weeks ago? Either way, this game would be fun to watch.

LSU is playing well, and are doing what is necessary to win. A strong defensive stand shows this team has heart, and kept them undefeated. Look for the crowd, a night crowd, drunk and rowdy, to play a huge roll.

I personally love night games. This would be a great game to watch if not for the Big Ten playing Michgan at No. 12 Iowa on ABC.

Michigan is looking to rebound after a tough loss in East Lansing. Iowa is rolling, coming off a victory against Arkansas State. This is a marquee match-up for the Big Ten. It's homecoming at Iowa, it's going to be a blackout, it's going to be rowdy, and it's going to be a great game.

It will be tough on Michigan as Kinnick stadium will be just as rowdy as Tiger Stadium.

Can Tate Forcier be heroic again? Does Iowa continue winning? Is Tebow a factor? Can LSU upset Florida? 

Look for my TV to be on ABC watching Michigan play Iowa. I will be switching at commercial breaks to checkout CBS. Who will you tune in to?
