College football’s 2018 season continues with a Week 11 slate featuring 62 games from Wednesday to Saturday night. While the Week 11 slate doesn't feature as many top 25 showdowns as the schedule from last Saturday, there are plenty of intriguing contests on tap this weekend.

The action starts on Wednesday night with two games in the MAC. Ohio travels to Oxford to take on Miami (Ohio), while Toledo plays at Northern Illinois. Wake Forest at NC State is the lone game on Thursday night, but Friday's slate features Louisville visiting Syracuse, and Boise State hosting Fresno State in a key Mountain West showdown.

The Saturday schedule begins with Ohio State-Michigan State, South Carolina-Florida, Wisconsin-Penn State and TCU-West Virginia in the first window. The afternoon slate features a couple of interesting matchups, including Mississippi State-Alabama, Northwestern-Iowa, Baylor-Iowa State, Oklahoma State-Oklahoma and Virginia Tech-Pitt. The night slate of games is headlined by Auburn-Georgia, Oregon-Utah, Temple-Houston, Texas-Texas Tech, Clemson-Boston College and Florida State-Notre Dame. California at USC and Colorado State at Nevada cap off the Week 11 action with games starting at 10:30 p.m. ET.
