This weekend's college football slate is relatively weak overall, but there are still several marquee games that will be exciting to watch. Here are the six games that are must-see television on Saturday:
(22) BYU at Michigan - 12:00 pm ET, ABC
Michigan is still looking for their first marquee win under head coach Jim Harbaugh, and a victory over BYU at the Big House would qualify. The Cougars suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday to UCLA, but a road win over the Wolverines could do wonders for their rankings.
(3) TCU at Texas Tech - 4:45 pm ET, FOX
The Horned Frogs have suffered numerous injuries on defense, specifically to their linebacking core, and their defense has struggled mightily because of it. They gave up 37 points to a much less talented SMU team, and Texas Tech has the third ranked offense in the country. This game will big an exciting shootout, and may come down to whoever has the ball last.
(14) Texas A&M at Arkansas - 7:00 pm ET, ESPN
Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema was called out by Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury for not having a "tough" team in the Red Raiders' victory last week, and went on to say that the Aggies would do the same this weekend. The Razorbacks are in a freefall having lost their last two games to Toledo and Texas Tech, and they need a big win to get their season back on track. Sparks will be flying in the SEC opener for both teams.
(9) UCLA at (16) Arizona - 8:00 pm ET, ABC
The first in a trio of intriguing Pac-12 night games, UCLA and Arizona meet in a battle of the top two Pac-12 South contenders. Bruins freshman quarterback Josh Rosen has struggled after a great performance in his debut, while Arizona is looking to gain respect and prove that last year's division title and Fiesta Bowl berth wasn't a fluke. A win over a top-10 team will do just that.
(18) Utah at (13) Oregon - 8:30 pm ET, FOX
Oregon's College Football Playoff hopes are on the line as they can't afford another loss after falling to Michigan State two weeks ago, and like Arizona, Utah is looking for a win to gain respect in a crowded Pac-12 race. It's also a great matchup between Oregon's spread high-octane offense and Utah's stout defense.
(19) USC at Arizona State - 10:30 pm ET, ESPN
This game is between two teams that desperately need a win to get their seasons back on track. Arizona State lost their opener to Texas A&M and hasn't been ranked since, while USC was upset by Stanford and may have lost their chance to make the College Football Playoff. Both teams will play with an intensity and desperation that will make this one exciting.Back to the NCAA Newsfeed
