Best College Football Games on TV Today

TCU at Texas, 12 p.m. on FOX

Horned Frogs have won five of the last six meetings with the Longhorns and Texas has already dodged one close call, outlasting Texas Tech in overtime last week.

Baylor at West Virginia, 12 p.m. on ABC

Bears won in Dave Aranda's debut but the Mountaineers figure to be a much tougher test than the Jayhawks, especially in Morgantown.

Texas A&M at Alabama, 3:30 p.m. on CBS

Both teams won their openers last Saturday but neither did so in impressive fashion. Aggies have talent and experience but will that be enough to knock off the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa?

Navy at Air Force, 6 p.m. on CBSSN

The Midshipmen rebounded nicely from their season-opening blowout loss to BYU by rallying to beat Tulane last week. The Falcons are playing in their first game as the Mountain West originally postponed their season before recently announcing an Oct. 24 return to play an eight-game schedule (Air Force getting early start). Also, any game in the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy series is usually worth watching.

Auburn at Georgia, 7:30 p.m. on ESPN

Bulldogs have won the last three editions of the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry." Can the Tigers win the 125th meeting and announce themselves as legitimate contenders in the SEC?

Arkansas at Mississippi State, 7:30 p.m. on SEC Network Alternate

Mike Leach and K.J. Costello made quite the first impression in their Bulldogs debut by beating defending national champion LSU. The Razorbacks hung in for a while against Georgia in Sam Pittman's first game as head coach but now have to try and solve the offense that broke a few records last week.

Oklahoma at Iowa State, 7:30 p.m. on ABC

Sooners were stunned at home by Kansas State and now must venture to Ames to face a Cyclones team that upset Oklahoma a couple of seasons ago.

Virginia at Clemson, 8 p.m. on ACC Network

It's a rematch of last season's ACC Championship Game although the Cavaliers no longer have Bryce Perkins to lean on while the Tigers still have Trevor Lawrence. Can Virginia's defense slow down Clemson's offense enough to keep it a close game in Death Valley?
