College football’s Week 5 slate kicks off on Thursday night with two matchups. Kansas and Texas Tech meet in Lubbock to open Big 12 play for both teams, while Houston hosts Connecticut in a revenge game for coach Tom Herman’s program. While there’s some intrigue for the two Thursday games, the stakes are even higher on Friday night. Stanford and Washington meet for a huge Pac-12 showdown, while Toledo travels to Provo to take on BYU. Several interesting matchups are on tap for Saturday, including the Clemson-Louisville showdown in Death Valley. Wisconsin-Michigan, Florida State-North Carolina, Tennessee-Georgia, Oregon-Washington State, California-Utah and TCU-Oklahoma are just a few of the other top matchups to watch on Saturday for Week 5.
