MSU vs. Western Michigan: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

While not as meaty as college football's opening night, the encore has some second courses definitely worth not missing.

It didn't take long. After South Carolina-North Carolina wound up being suspended longer than Johnny Manziel will during Saturday's Texas A&M-Rice game, you were watching Utah State-Utah with zero reservations. And that's how it should be.

Friday's slate is more for the hardcore college football enthusiasts, but still has some interesting prospects. Al Golden and Miami may not have heard from the NCAA yet, but they'll get 2013 started against in-state brethren Florida Atlantic. The Canes open this one as heavy 31½ point favorites.

Former Texas Tech quarterback Kliff Kingsbury makes his head coaching debut against June Jones and SMU's run-and-shoot offense. If you love points, this one should more than take care of you; the O/U is set at 59½. Tech sits as narrow 4 point favorites as of now, but this one remains one to watch.

And there's the B1G token Friday representative. After the conference opened 2-0 Monday night, Michigan State plays host to one-time almost Ohio State wide receivers coach P.J. Fleck and the Western Michigan Broncos. Sparty serves court as 28 point home favorites and should be in good position to start the year right.
