There are 65 FBS games this weekend.
These are the five that might have some say in how the season rolls out.
(rankings are mine, using my own methodology.)
5) #32 Kansas (3-0) vs #15 Duke (3-0).
An outside possibility that the winner of this game gets the confidence needed to spoil a division contender somewhere down the line. Also, who in God’s green earth ever thought Duke and Kansas would be 3-0 in football at the same time?
4) #27 Oregon St (3-0) vs #13 USC (3-0).
Nobody actually thinks Oregon St is going to win this game. But I think everybody was too quick to accept USC as "back." So, who’s gonna win this one? Beavers or Trojans?
3) #25 Clemson (3-0) vs #11 Wake Forest (3-0)
Regular polls basically have these two teams’ rankings reversed. I think Clemson is overrated this year and Wake Forest is underrated.
2) #24 Michigan St (2-1) vs #18 Minnesota (3-0)
Michigan State’s season essentially depends on whether they can beat an undefeated Minnesota team that has a fighting chance to look legitimate for once. This game will be fun.
1) #6 Maryland (3-0) vs #5 Michigan (3-0)
Who here doesn’t wanna see Tua’s little brother chop the legs off the Wolverine’s season?
