2014 College Football TV Schedule Week 7: Another great weekend of games

A top ten matchup between #9 TCU and #5 Baylor is just one of many great games.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

College football is rolling through the season, and we have our second straight week of juicy games between ranked teams. Last Saturday did not disappoint on the national scene, as the state of Mississippi claimed the crown of college football, at least for seven days. And if you're a Rutgers fan, this is the perfect opportunity to catch up on games across the nation before the Scarlet Knights get back in to the Big Ten race.

Thursday night provides a nice teaser for the full weekend slate, although the matchup is not as dramatic after BYU lost Taysom Hill one week ago to a leg injury. The Cougars lost against Utah State, effectively ending their hopes for a chance at the playoff, but they can still make a BCS New Year's Six Bowl. They have to get through an AAC contender though, as UCF is still a solid team post-Bortles.

Friday night gives us a chance to check in on Rutgers' opponent from the season opener, Washington State. These Cougars have had a roller coaster season thus far, losing to Nevada, giving Oregon a fight for its life, beating Utah, then losing to Cal. Who knows how they'll do against #25 Stanford. A couple Mountain West games round out Friday Night Lights on ESPN and CBS Sports Network.

On Saturday, the action starts at noon with the Red River Shootout Rivalry Showdown, as Texas attempts to escape embarrassment on national television. Most eyes will most like be on #13 Georgia @ #23 Missouri. For the second round of games at 3:30, you've got marquee matchups in the Pac-12 and the Big 12. On the west coast, you have two teams looking to pick up the pieces, as #12 Oregon and #18 UCLA were both upset at home. The winner could still have a shot at the College Football Playoff. In the Big 12, two new-school powers square off as #9 TCU visits #5 Baylor. In 2014, those two schools illustrate the new world order of college football. In primetime, you have a 9 PM kickoff for #3 Ole Miss @ #14 Texas A&M.

If you want to make it an all-B1G Saturday, you're in luck. Five conference games will serve to give clarity to the race for Indianapolis, including Northwestern @ Minnesota, two B1G West teams who are undefeated in conference play. In primetime, Penn State visits Michigan in what should be another drama-filled episode of Hoke-Hot-Seat Weekly.
