Your Week 9 L.A. college football TV choices: USC-Oregon looks like it could be, um, decent

Decent enough for ESPN’s “College GameDay” to venture out to the opposite coast and check in on how the Trojans and Ducks will matchup on the early-morning Saturday show. They’ll even keep the big guns in Eugene to call that game that afternoon.

For what it’s worth, “GameDay” has already committed to being in Colorado Springs, Colo., the next Saturday when Air Force hosts Army as part of “a weeklong initiative honoring the veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.”

Some goofy things going on this week: Notre Dame goes to San Antonio to remember it has a game against Washington State; UCLA isn’t on TV but East Carolina is on national TV; Ohio State has another non-conference game, this time against New Mexico State; Alabama gets to sleep in.

And, ESPN goes up against the World Series on Sunday with some football (since NBC won’t)… so there.
