Do you really — really — love service-academy football?

Do you have cable or a dish?

Well, hey, this is your weekend. CBS College Sports is touting the network’s Armed Forces Salute week, which will feature a triple header of mil-football goodness. For some reason CBS College Sports decided not to wait for two of the service academies to square off against each other, but we’ll let it slide. I guess VMI versus Army is close enough. Here is the full set of games:

VMI plays Army at 12 p.m. EDT. Duke plays at Navy at 3:30 p.m. And Utah plays Air Force at 7:30 p.m.

There’s an hourlong pregame show “featuring cadet and midshipmen representatives from the academies as special guest analysts.” And during the week, the network will show “classic service academy football games, vignettes about great moments in academy football, congressional player salutes, features on current and former players and original programming highlighted by the debut of three 30-minute documentaries,” according to a press release.

Remember folks, this is CBS College Sports, not the broadcast network. If you don’t get it, you’re in luck. The cable honchos are offering a free preview period through Nov. 6.
