Ultimate schedule: Best games each week
"I wanna live/where it's always Saturday"
In 1989, the band Guadalcanal Diary sang "Always Saturday." Though the band was formed in Georgia and based for a while in Athens, the tune isn't about college football; rather, it's about an idyllic life in the suburbs.
One of the most entertaining things about college football is being able to look at the schedule as a whole and pick out important games in Week 1, Week 4, Week 6, etc.
That's why the lyric quoted above, from Guadalcanal Diary's 1989 song "Always Saturday," should resonate with college football fans. Though the band was formed in Georgia and based for a while in Athens, the tune isn't about college football; rather, it's about an idyllic life in the suburbs. But what if every day in the fall was a Saturday - talk about an idyllic life.
Also idyllic would be attending the most important game each weekend. In that vein, let's take a preseason look at the best game each weekend this fall.
