Stanford's Road to the BCS: Early Games Open Thread

Scoreboardwatch_medium

LSU took care of Arkansas yesterday, so Stanford's slim BCS title game hopes are still alive. Two things must happen today to keep the Cardinal in the race. Auburn must beat heavily favored Alabama in the Iron Bowl and Stanford must beat Notre Dame.

In addition to those two games, there are number of others that would improve the Cardinal's standing in the BCS picture. Here's the link to the full Unofficial Guide to Scoreboard Watching. Be sure to check out the comments, as several people added a few additional games to monitor. The early games of note are listed below, with the teams to root for in bold. 

Iowa State at Oklahoma, 9 a.m., FX

Ohio State at Michigan, 9 a.m., ABC

Oregon State at Oregon, 12:30 p.m., ABC

Virginia Tech at Virginia, 12:30 p.m., ESPN2

Alabama at Auburn, 12:30 p.m., CBS
