As teams start to play their conference games, we get a better picture of which teams can navigate through their conference and make it to the college football playoffs. The conference schedule is a mini-playoff, allowing teams to prove themselves against their toughest opponents.
No. 4 Florida State @ No.25 Clemson
Clemson, the reigning ACC champions, is currently on a seven-game winning streak against Florida State University. The last time the Seminoles won a game in Death Valley was in 2013.
Despite FSU being the favorite to win this upcoming game, much is at stake beyond conference standings. This game has implications for both teams’ rankings and their chances for a spot in the college football playoffs. It is sure to be an exciting and highly anticipated matchup.
No. 19 Colorado @ No. 10 Oregon
It’s another exciting week for the Colorado Buffaloes as they gear up to participate in one of the most anticipated games of the weekend. Despite the odds against them, with Oregon being 21-point favorites, the Buffaloes are ready to give it their all and put up a good fight.
Although Oregon has yet to provide any specific motivation for the Buffaloes, the team is determined to prove their worth and show the world their capabilities. With the game just around the corner, fans eagerly await what promises to be a thrilling matchup between these talented teams.
No. 15 UCLA @ No. 11 Utah
Chip Kelly’s tenure as the head coach of the UCLA Bruins has been underwhelming so far, but the team showed significant improvement in their recent game against Utah.
Despite a slow start to the season, the Bruins put on a dominant performance and secured a much-needed victory. Their strong showing on both sides of the ball has given fans hope that they may salvage the season. If they can keep up this level of play, the Bruins could find themselves ranked in the top ten in the coming weeks.
No. 15 Ole Miss @ No. 13 Alabama
Ole Miss needs a better record for winning games in Tuscaloosa. Since 1988, they have only managed to win two games against the University of Alabama when playing on their home turf. However, this does not mean that the Crimson Tide, the football team from the University of Alabama, are unbeatable.
Despite being a strong team, they are not invincible, currently ranked outside of the top ten, something that has yet to happen in years. The Crimson Tide still has a good chance of winning the SEC West, one of the toughest conferences in college football. But first, they will have to beat Ole Miss, a team known for its tenacity and determination on the field.
No. 14 Oregon State @ No. 21 Washington State
The upcoming Pac-12 matchup between Washington State and Oregon State promises to be thrilling. Oregon State has been steadily climbing up the rankings and is expected to put up a strong challenge against Uiagalelei.
The game offers a fantastic opportunity for former Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei to demonstrate his abilities on the national stage and prove that he is a force to be reckoned with. With both teams eager to win, it will undoubtedly be an exciting game for all football fans to watch.
No. 6 Ohio State @ No. 9 Notre Dame
Football fans should keep an eye on the upcoming game between the Buckeyes and Fighting Irish. Marvin Harrison Jr. and Sam Hartman have the potential to create some truly memorable “Heisman Moments” during the game.
It’s worth noting that Ohio State came out on top in the previous matchup, but this time, Notre Dame has a legitimate quarterback and the added advantage of playing on their home field. These factors make for an even more exciting and unpredictable game.
