Sad as it is to say, we’re on to the home stretch for the college football season as the conference title races start to narrow across the country and the chase for the College Football Playoff begins to come into focus. Though we’ve flown past the midway mark, there is a good thing about the calendar flipping over to month No. 11: just three days without any football from now until December when factoring in the NFL.
Yes, that’s right, we’ve got the glorious return of midweek MACtion and late-night Sun Belt FunBelt to go with all the glorious action each and every Saturday the rest of the way.
What games are absolutely worth marking the calendar for though? Here are 20 of the best college football games during the month of November and why you should tune in:
1. Alabama at LSU (Nov. 3)
While it’s not quite "Game of the Century" levels that we’ve seen in the past for this SEC West showdown, this is still as good as it will get in college football in 2018. Potential division and conference titles, plus a trip to the College Football Playoff will all be on the line as one of the best defenses in the sport tries to defend home turf under the lights against one of the best offenses.
