College Football Week 7: Games to Watch

The College Football season is halfway over. For contending teams, every game now becomes a playoff.

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Kansas John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday, October 15

North Carolina State Wolfpack 4-1 (1-0 ACC) at #3 Clemson Tigers 6-0 (2-0 ACC) @ 11 a.m. (CT) on ABC

North Carolina State may wish the effects of Hurricane Matthew were still sogging up the playing field in this one same as it did in their win over Notre Dame last week.

Kansas State Wildcats 3-2 (1-1 Big 12) at #19 Oklahoma Sooners 3-2 (2-0 Big 12) @ 11 a.m. (CT) on ESPN

Last Saturday the Sooners' offense looked scary good, but it did come against a Texas team apparently allergic to the notion of defense. K-State isn’t scared. The Wildcats haven't lost to Oklahoma in Norman since 2009.

#20 West Virginia Mountaineers 4-0 (1-0 Big 12) at Texas Tech Red Raiders 3-2 (1-1 Big 12) @ 11 a.m. (CT) FS1

This air raid shootout may take 5.5 hours to play and result in a combined 125 points on the board.

Kansas Jayhawks 1-4 (0-2 Big 12) at #11 Baylor Bears 5-0 (2-0 Big 12) @ 2:30 p.m. (CT) on FS1

The Baylor Bears are doing their damnedest to work their way up the rankings as the Big 12's last real hope of crashing the College Football Playoff. Their first two conference wins haven't come easy even against lowly Iowa State.

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide 6-0 (3-0 SEC) at #9 Tennessee 5-1 (2-1 SEC) @ 2:30 p.m. (CT) on CBS

Another Saturday, another Top 10 match-up in the SEC. Can anyone stop the Tide from running wire to wire at #1? The Volunteers almost came up with their sixth straight come from behind win of the season before their luck finally ran out in OT vs Texas A&M. Does Tennessee have enough of that magic left to down the Tide in one of the best home atmospheres in the nation?

#12 Ole Miss Rebels 3-2 (1-1 SEC) at #22 Arkansas Razorbacks 4-2 (0-2 SEC) @ 6 p.m. (CT) on ESPN

Neither of these teams are as good as their ranking would indicate and a loss here would all but eliminate them from a shot at the SEC West division title.

#2 Ohio State Buckeyes 5-0 (2-0 Big 10) at #8 Wisconsin Badgers 4-1 (1-1 Big 10) @ 7 p.m. (CT) on ABC

The Wisconsin defense did all that they could to earn the Badgers a win over Michigan in the Big House before coming up just short. Now they get their second straight shot at a Top Five team. This time at home.
