Georgia Tech may not be taking the field on Saturday afternoon but there are still plenty of great match ups to watch in college football this weekend.
Geoff Collins and the Georgia Tech football team have their second bye week of the season this weekend. That being said, if you’re a Georgia Tech fan still looking to watch some college football action, we have five games from around the country for you to turn into on Saturday afternoon and evening.
No. 13 Wisconsin at No. 3 Ohio State – FOX
This game doesn’t have nearly the amount of glamour it would’ve had if Wisconsin didn’t choke away a lead last week against Illinois but this should still be an interesting game to watch. The Badgers saw their playoff hopes all but end last week with their loss but a win over Ohio State could perhaps revive those hopes. The Buckeyes are two touchdown favorites over the Badgers.
Miami at Pittsburgh – ACC Network (12:00 pm)
The Yellow Jackets are coming off an upset of the Miami Hurricanes last week and are set to take on the Pittsburgh Panthers next weekend. This is a big matchup in the ACC Coastal as the Panthers look to stay near the top of the ACC Coastal standings. Miami, on the other hand is also looking to bounce back from last week’s shocking loss to the Jackets.

No.9 Auburn at No.2 LSU – CBS (3:30 pm)
The premier game of the weekend by far, this will be a fun one to watch. Auburn has looked strong at times this season but when they were tested by Florida earlier this year, they struggled mightily. They’ll face an even better team on Saturday when they take on the red-hot LSU Tigers who just may be the best team in the country. How will Auburn true freshman quarterback Bo Nix do against one of the country’s best? Will LSU quarterback and possible Heisman frontrunner Joe Burrow perform against a very strong Auburn defense that has given everyone fits this season? These are just two storylines to watch but this game has long lasting implications on the SEC and College Football Playoffs.
Duke at North Carolina – ACC Network Extra (4:00 pm)
This should be an interesting and intriguing rivalry matchup. Both teams have had their ups-and-downs and are in need of a big rivalry win this weekend. This should be a high-scoring matchup as both offenses have been clicking at points this season. I’ll be interested to see how Sam Howell performs in this rivalry game.
No.8 Notre Dame at No.19 Michigan – ABC (7:30 pm)
Notre Dame is looking to keep their playoff hopes alive while Michigan is in danger of four-loss season with Ohio State still left on their schedule. Can the Irish go into the Big House and take down a Michigan team that is fighting for their life? The Wolverines are going to be hungry and they’ll give the Irish they’re best fight, will it be enough?
Other games to watch:
Here are a few other games to possibly take a look at on Saturday.
No. 5 Oklahoma at Kansas State (12:00 pm – ABC): The Wildcats are a much improved team and could give Oklahoma some fits on Saturday afternoon.
No. 6 Penn State at Michigan State (3:30 pm – ABC): Penn State is looking to get off to an 8-0 start but have Michigan State in their ways. The Spartans have given the Nittany Lions troubles in the past beating them in each of the last two seasons.
UCF at Temple (7:00 pm – ESPN2): Temple got blown out last week against SMU but UCF has struggled on the road this season. UCF should win this game, probably by a touchdown or two but I have feeling it will be a good game all around and a fun one to watch.
Boston College at No.4 Clemson (7:30 pm – ACCN): Clemson didn’t look all that great for the most part last week. They return home this weekend in a game they should win easily. Will the Tigers once again struggle or will they live up to expectations?
