Best College Football Games on TV Today
No. 6 Oklahoma vs. No. 21 Texas (Dallas), 12 p.m. on ABC
Whether you want to call it the Red River Rivalry, Showdown, or Shootout, it's usually must-see TV when Oklahoma and Texas get together in Dallas. This will be Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian's first taste of scene that will play out in the Cotton Bowl, while Sooners QB Spencer Rattler is out to prove the doubters wrong.
No. 13 Arkansas at No. 17 Ole Miss, 12 p.m. on ESPN
Both SEC West teams are trying to bounce back from lopsided losses last week. The winner of this game in Oxford can at least entertain the thought of still contending in the division while the loser can pretty much kiss any shot at a New Year's Six bowl goodbye.
West Virginia at Baylor, 12 p.m. on FS1
Baylor suffered its first loss last week but can stay in the hunt for a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game by beating a West Virginia team that is winless thus far in conference play.
No. 2 Georgia at No. 18 Auburn, 3:30 p.m. on CBS
Georgia comes to Jordan-Hare Stadium undefeated and putting the clamps down on every team it faces. Auburn survived an entertaining affair against LSU and is hoping to put an end to its four-game losing streak in the series known as the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry.
Boise State at No. 10 BYU, 3:30 p.m. on ABC
Boise State is off to its worst start in 20 years, but the Broncos are no stranger to knocking off higher-ranked teams. BYU is undefeated but isn't blowing out every team it faces and has some uncertainty at quarterback. Can the Broncos play giant-killers yet again?
No. 4 Penn State at No. 3 Iowa, 4 p.m. on FOX
The stakes have never been higher for a game involving these two teams with both eyeing not just a Big Ten title but a potential spot in the College Football Playoff as well. Points may be hard to come by given the strength and early performances by both defenses.
No. 9 Michigan at Nebraska, 7:30 p.m. on ABC
Nebraska has played better than its record indicates, while Michigan is running over teams for the first time in a while. Is this the game where Scott Frost's Cornhuskers finally come up with a signature win or will the Wolverines leave Lincoln with their perfect record intact?
No. 1 Alabama at Texas A&M, 8 p.m. on CBS
Alabama has dominated the encounters with Texas A&M since the Aggies joined the SEC, and that looks unlikely to change this time with Jimbo Fisher's team struggling. However, a win in front of the home crowd at Kyle Field would not only do wonders for the team's psyche (and the fan base's morale), it also would send quite the shockwave through the entire college football landscape.
Utah at USC, 8 p.m. on FOX
Neither team has started the season as they had hoped, but Utah has won its only conference game, so the Utes can still be a threat in the Pac-12 South race. USC is carrying on under an interim head coach, and while the Trojans may already be out of the running in the division, they will have multiple opportunities to play spoiler the rest of the way.
