Apparently, those of you who read SB Nation New York are not the world's biggest college football fans. In case you didn't know, the BCS Championship Game is tonight (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) pitting Auburn vs. Oregon.

Why do I think you must not care? Well, our Jared Smith posted a 'who do you think will win' poll this morning, and as I write this is has received all of eight votes. On top of which, I polled our staff here at SB Nation New York over the weekend to see if we could do a staff predictions column, and got back all of one vote from our 10-member group.

So, apparently, we know football exists outside the Big East. It looks, however, like folks around here don't seem to care very much. At least if they do they aren't showing it.

So, if you aren't spending your time in front of the TV tonight listening to Brent Musberger babble -- or just hanging out waiting for glimpses of Erin Andrews -- here are a few ways you might be spending your time.

  1. Watch the WWE -- Admit it, we know that even if you are planning to watch Auburn vs. Oregon you will be sneaking peeks at what is going on with Monday Night Raw. I will never admit knowing any of the names, or having a clue what the story line is.
  2. Watch some college hoops -- Notre Dame at Marquette should be a good one to watch ( 7 p.m. ET, ESPN2), but at 9 p.m. you are stuck with Alabama A&M at Arkansas (ESPNU). Unless, of course, you are into the World Series of Poike ( 9 p.m., ESPN2).
  3. NHL action -- If you are a hockey fan, you can tune in to Bruins vs. Penguins (Versus, 7:30 p.m.).
  4. Watch a movie -- The Adam Sandler remake of 'The Longest Yard' is on Spike at 9 p.m. if you want to see a different kind of football. Then again, there's always Netflix. Or a book. 
Then again, you could just watch the game.
