Since I have about a million things to do before my flight leaves and there are far too many quality games on this weekend to give you a quality preview in a short period of time, I'm leaving you this Friday with only a rundown of games to watch this weekend. I'll have a full weekend preview again next Friday when I get back to DC.
Depending on what I have going on this weekend in the happening hamlets of Winter Haven and Lakeland, I might delay the Super Bowl Sunday bracket to Monday morning.
Now onto to my TV picks for the weekend. As always, TV information is from Matt's College Sports on TV site.
