College football's Week 11 slate for the 2020 season initially featured 49 scheduled games from Wednesday to Saturday, and our NCAA experts are ready with their predictions and picks. Unfortunately, a rash of COVID-19-related issues across the country has resulted in the postponement or cancellation of more than a dozen games.

As for the remaining games, the Week 11 action kicked off on Tuesday night with three MAC contests and continues on Wednesday, Nov. 11 with three more MAC contests, including Toledo at Western Michigan and Central Michigan at Northern Illinois. Colorado State at Boise State is the only college game slated for Thursday, while FAU-FIU, Iowa-Minnesota and East Carolina-Cincinnati take place on Friday. Saturday's slate begins with a handful of games in the Noon ET window. Miami plays at Virginia Tech, Indiana travels to Michigan State and Penn State meets Nebraska. The afternoon slate features Notre Dame-Boston College, USC-Arizona, Louisville-Virginia, Baylor-Texas Tech and Colorado-Stanford. At night, the Week 11 slate includes Oregon-Washington State, Arkansas-Florida, SMU-Tulsa, Wisconsin-Michigan, Northwestern-Purdue, Florida State-NC State and South Carolina-Ole Miss. There are also a few games kicking off after 9:30 p.m. ET, including UNLV-San Jose State and Oregon State-Washington.
