Today is all about college football, so forget the yard work, put down the honey-do list, grab a cold one and turn on the TV.
For those too busy to dig through all the games today to find the ones to watch, we’ve taken the time to give you some Game of the Week choices.
#5 Louisville at Virginia NOON EST ESPN2
If you want to see a team get blown out of their own stadium, this may be the game for you. The Cardinals are only favored by 32.5 points, so this one may get close… or not. Either way, expect more fireworks from Heisman candidate Lamar Jackson as he continues his march through the ranks of NCAA 2016 greats!
#4 Washington at #17 Utah 3:30pm Fox Sports 1
Someone opened the door and the Huskies let themselves into the playoff race. But, the Utes are trying to drag them back outside and shut that door today. The Utes have won 10 of their last 12 home games and their defense is the best in all of college football when it comes to taking the ball away from opponents.
#7 Nebraska at #11 Wisconsin, 7:00 p.m. ESPN
While J.J. Watt is sidelined and spending time with Brian Cushing’ sister-in-law, little brother T.J. Watt is looking to continue his climb up the ranks of All-American linebackers as he and his Badger teammates look to shut down Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong. Watt has 7 solo sacks on the season, but the Cornhuskers have only given up 5 all year – something will have to give in this one.
#3 Clemson at #12 Florida State 8:00 p.m. ABC
Dabo Swinney’s Tigers are looking to return to the Championship game again this season as they travel to Tallahassee where they’ve only won three times in school history. While Clemson is clearly the better team, the Seminoles have luck, history and superstition on their side. This game should be the most exciting one of the day, well deserving of it’s prime time spotlight.
