College Football Games on TV Tonight
Duke at Virginia Tech, 7 p.m. on ESPN
Both teams are coming off of a bye. This is Duke's ACC opener while Virginia Tech is 0-1 in the conference after opening the season with a loss to Boston College. More concerning for the Hokies, however, is how they have played in lackluster wins over Furman and Old Dominion. The Blue Devils have dominated North Carolina A&T and Middle Tennessee since getting blown out by Alabama in their opener.
Penn State at Maryland, 8 p.m. on FS1
Prior to Maryland's head-scratching loss to Temple, this was shaping up to be a matchup of unbeaten teams. The Terrapins already have one victory over a ranked opponent, destroying then-No. 21 Syracuse 63-20 back in Week 2 but then laid an egg against the Owls. Penn State won a hard-fought game against Pitt and opens up Big Ten play seeking a fifth straight victory over Maryland.
San Jose State at Air Force, 8 p.m. on CBSSN
San Jose State is still riding high after last week's stunning upset of Arkansas. The Spartans (2-1) are just one victory away from matching their total over the past two seasons combined and now look for their first winning streak in five years in their Mountain West opener. Air Force (2-1, 0-1 MW) is coming off a loss at Boise State and boasts one of the nation's most productive rushing offenses.
Arizona State at Cal, 10:30 p.m. on ESPN
Cal (4-0, 1-0) is the Pac-12's lone remaining undefeated team after making a goal-line stand on the road against Ole Miss last week. Arizona State (3-1, 0-1) fell from those ranks last week with a 34-31 home loss to Colorado. The Sun Devils hold a slight 17-16 edge in the overall series and this is a matchup of two strikingly similar teams.
