Best College Football Games on TV Today

No. 4 Clemson at Florida State, 12 p.m. on ABC

For the past decade, the winner of this game has gone on to claim the ACC Atlantic Division title. There are no divisions this year, but Clemson has been in full control of this series the last five years and the Tigers come into this meeting with Trevor Lawrence back at quarterback as well as still smarting from their loss to Notre Dame. Can Florida State make something out of this disaster of a season by knocking off the Tigers at home?

Appalachian State at No. 15 Coastal Carolina, 12 p.m. on ESPN2

Coastal Carolina has faced little opposition in getting to 7-0. Appalachian State has won five in a row and isn't quite ready to hand over its Sun Belt East crown. Can the Mountaineers hand the Chanticleers their first loss?

No. 9 Indiana at No. 3 Ohio State, 12 p.m. on FOX

It's been an impressive season already for Indiana but Ohio State is on another level compared to the other teams the Hoosiers have defeated. The Buckeyes have a chance to impress the College Football Playoff Selection Committee if they can post a dominating win over a top-10 team.

UCLA at No. 11 Oregon, 3:30 p.m. on ESPN2

Chip Kelly returns to Autzen Stadium and while Oregon looks different under Mario Cristobal compared to when he was running things, the Ducks' offense seems to have found a new gear with offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead calling the plays. Kelly's Bruins got their first win of the season last week, so is an upset of the defending Pac-12 champions next?

No. 10 Wisconsin at No. 19 Northwestern, 3:30 p.m. on ABC

The top two teams in the Big Ten West face off in Evanston with the winner seizing control of the division. Wisconsin has looked impressive in its first two games but Northwestern's defense will be the toughest test Badgers redshirt freshman quarterback Graham Mertz has faced yet.

No. 7 Cincinnati at UCF, 3:30 p.m. on ESPN

Cincinnati is undefeated and in the lead for the Group of 5's New Year's Six bowl berth. This is a position UCF is all too familiar with. Will the Knights put a severe dent in the Bearcats' postseason aspirations when the two meet in the Bounce House?

No. 14 Oklahoma State at No. 18 Oklahoma, 7:30 p.m. on ABC

It's Bedlam! Oklahoma State got off to a better start than Oklahoma but the Sooners have quietly been rounding into form while the Cowboys were tripped up a couple of weeks ago by Texas. So not only is this a rivalry game with in-state bragging rights on the line, but a win by Oklahoma would add even more intrigue to the Big 12 standings (and run their streak over OSU to six in a row).
