This has nothing to do with anything, other than that Otto is so darn adorable and is here waiving the white flag.

It's a bye week for Virginia, but Saturdays are still reserved for college football. The weather is crappy outside, which means you probably shouldn't be running around doing chores and errands. Your sole job today is to sit in front of a TV and watch (good) college football. And maybe have a pot of chili simmering away.

Here's your full schedule for the day, including kickoff time, TV schedule and channel, and the broadcast crew, all sorted by conference (using the home team). Feel free to use this as today's open thread, and make sure you let us know what your drink of choice is for the day.
