Your only opportunity to watch these two powerhouse programs clash this season comes when Alabama hosts LSU this Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. I urge you not to take five … days, that is. If you tune in at 8 p.m. on Nov. 14, you’ll see a new episode of The Big Bang Theory titled “The Itchy Brain Simulation” in which Penny (Kaley Cuoco) confronts Raj’s (Kunal Nayyar) ex-girlfriend, Lucy (Kate Micucci).
College football is my favorite sport. The Big Bang Theory is my favorite current show. On my TV calendar, therefore, Nov. 9 and Nov. 14 are hot dates. I go from football to photons. From a physical game to physical science. From receivers in motion to particles in motion. From Alabama-LSU to Caltech.
By the way, actress Kate Micucci is also one half of the comedic folk-rock duo Garfunkel and Oates, and she co-wrote the sweet, clever love song “If I Didn’t Have You (Bernadette’s Song)” that Howard (Simon Helberg) performed on the Oct. 24 episode called “The Romance Resonance.” You can check out Howard’s romantic gesture below and, if interested, download the song from iTunes or Amazon.com. The ode to Bernadette has been released in support of the charity MusiCares.
Remember: If you want to see Alabama play LSU, Nov. 14 is five days late. Only one game is on the slate, so don’t wait. Mark the date.
Too much rhyming?
