The best games

No. 10 Penn State in No. 5 Michigan – Noon on Fox, fuboTV (Try it for free): The Nittany Lions had two weeks to prepare for the biggest game of the young season. Quarterback Sean Clifford and the dynamic Nittany Lions offense will have a formidable challenge against a Wolverines defense that has been one of the best in the country all season.

No. 3 Alabama in No. 6 Tennessee — 3:30 p.m. on CBS,, CBS Sports App: Will Crimson Tide quarterback and 2021 Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young play? He was absent last week with a sprained shoulderand could be needed to lead a high-scoring affair against a Volunteers offense spearheaded by Heisman Trophy contender Hendon Hooker.

No. 8 Oklahoma State at No. 13 TCU — 3:30 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try it for free): The undefeated Horned Frogs, led by veteran quarterback Max Duggan and a host of receivers, were one of them biggest surprises of the season. Meanwhile, the Cowboys just rolled along… lurking on the sidelines of the CFP race. Both teams need signature wins and this is a perfect place to put one on your resume.

#15 NC State at #18 Syracuse — 3:30 p.m. on ACC Network, fuboTV (Try it for free): The Wolf Pack must win to remain in the ACC title race and could be missing Devin Leary down the middle (or without a fully healthy one). The Orange will have huge home field advantage in the biggest game of the Dino Babers era and would make a big statement with a win over their ranked opponent in a conference game.

#16 Mississippi State in #22 Kentucky — 7:30 p.m. on SEC Network, fuboTV (Try it for free): Wildcats quarterback Will Levis’ status is up in the air, and they’re struggling to run the ball consistently. Mastering the time of the possession struggle could be crucial against a Bulldogs offense who can score points in a hurry.

#7 USC in #20 Utah — 8 p.m. on Fox, fuboTV (Try it for free): Despite an ultra-dynamic offense and an opportunistic defense, the Trojans are actually underdogs against the Utes. This prime-time game could be a chance for Trojans quarterback Caleb Williams to make a big statement against a Utes defense that struggled against UCLA last week.
