Not to slurp all over my cable provider, but Buckeye Cable is cool enough to not only provide the Big Ten Network, they actually air TWO games at once. So that's why I'm watching Minnesota-North Dakota State. It's tied 14-14, and apart from the sadness surrounding the fact that these two teams are on the same talent level, this is actually a very good game. Also, keep an eye out for Vanderbilt, who's taken a quick 10-0 lead over No. 6 South Carolina, and Iowa State, who's up early 7-0 over No. 5 Oklahoma.

But first, let's share DoctaJ716's house rules for the Pam Ward Drinking Game:

Rules: 1.) Mispronounciation of player's name = 1 drink 2.) blatently obvious analysis = 1 drink 2a.) Ray Bentley echoes her analysis in typical 4th grade fashion = triple drink score 3.) Incorrect naming of a play = 2 drinks 4.) Gives incorrect score = 3 drinks 5.) declares the wrong team w/possession, lead, penalty, score = 4 shots + mandatory drunk dialing of your ex 6.) face time on television = drink till she's cute or off the screen (whichever comes last)

I'm already shitfaced and she's starting to look like Halle Berry.
