Top 5 College Football Games to Watch in Week 6
College Football's Top 5 Games of Week 6
We are at that point in the college football season when ranked team square off and knock each other out of national championship contention. In other words, college football fans are already singing the Christmas carol "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year."
That's especially true in Chicago, where the college football world will create its nucleus on Saturday to await the incredible Big Ten showdown to decide the fate of two programs and their futures. And no, we're not talking about the University of Chicago (the Maroons are away this week anyway).
Here are the top five college football games to watch on Saturday:
Michigan State at Iowa
Michigan State at Iowa features two second-tier Big Ten teams looking to move up to the bottom of the first-tier pack. They're evenly matched and the environment at Iowa is going to be insane, so expect a close, down-to-the-wire, classic contest.
Ole Miss at Auburn
Ole Miss at Auburn is a good one because it features two SEC teams that were also overrated earlier this year. They have identical records and they're pretty square on paper, so this one should shake out to be a fun one with a lot of young, lesser-known players make big plays down the stretch.
Maryland at Florida State
Maryland at Florida State is going to awesome because both teams are looking to cement themselves as the dominant force in the ACC. The Terps are really trying to make a statement by knocking off the Seminoles while the home team is looking to move up in top 10 to really get in that national championship discussion.
Washington at Stanford
Washington at Stanford is great Pac-12 showdown between undefeated teams that should end with about 100 total points on the board and frankly, west coast college football fans wouldn't have it any other way.
Ohio State at Northwestern
Ohio State at Northwestern is the game everyone will be watching on Saturday because the Buckeyes are looking to remove all doubt about the validity of their title contention while the Wildcats have their sights set on a major upset and a big step toward the Big Ten championship game. Put simply, this is the one you don't want to miss.
