Enjoy the much-needed bye week, Scarlet Knight fans. After a tough three-game series against the B1G's best, we can all sit back and watch other teams beat each other up. You can start early tonight with a lopsided matchup between the #21 Clemson Tigers and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. On Friday, you have an AAC conference game and Mountain West tilt to keep you entertained.
On Saturday, the action starts early at noon with #12 Baylor visiting #15 Oklahoma. Scoring should be plentiful, so this could be a fun one. At 3:30 PM, #10 Notre Dame travels to Tempe to face the HIGH-OCTANE #9 Arizona State Sun Devils. The winner of this game could make a late-season run on the first ever College Football Playoff.
In primetime, there are two huge matchups in the B1G and SEC. On CBS, #5 Alabama visits Death Valley for a date with the Mad Hatter and #16 LSU. On ESPN, the Big Ten's preseason game of the year finally kicks off as #14 Ohio State looks to avenge a heartbreaking loss in last year's BTCCG to #8 Michigan State. College Gameday will kick things off in East Lansing for the Buckeys-Spartans tilt. If you need a late-night snack, flip to ESPN to watch #4 Oregon cement themselves as a playoff contender at Rice-Eccles Stadium to face #17 Utah.
Around the B1G, Iowa and Minnesota face off in Minneapolis at 12 PM to battle for the West division lead, while Michigan visits Evanston to take on Northwestern in a game that could impact bowl eligibility for both teams.
Happy watching #CHOPNation!
