Don't miss a thing in college football this weekend. With the Trojans out of town once again, you should be glued to your TV set all day unless the Trojans lose and you don't want to ever watch a football game again.

Here's the best games to catch on Thursday, Friday and each of the main Saturday time slots:

Thursday night: Florida State at Louisville

Bobby Petrino can dial up some elaborate play calls that could potentially confuse and slow the over-aggressive and uber-athletic Florida State defense. The Seminoles also are having to deal with more controversy after former Trojan target Karlos Williams was at the center of a domestic violence investigation . Is the No. 2 team vulnerable on Thursday night?

Friday night: Cincinnati at Tulane

Spend some time with friends and grab a drink because the two games on Friday night aren't much of a viewing experience. You can check out Tommy Tuberville's squad at a 2-5 Tulane squad or watch Memphis beat up on lowly Tulsa (remember when Tulsa was good under Todd Graham, who had Gus Malzahn as his offensive coordinator).

Saturday morning: No. 24 Duke at Pittsburgh

This is one of those changing of the guards games. The Blue Devils are trying to solidify their place as a top 25 program after a good season last year. The Panthers haven't been the 70s and 80s powerhouse they once were, in a long time. Pittsburgh has James Conner and that's about it. In other ACC action (on the ACC Network though), North Carolina plays at Miami, which might provide some early morning entertainment.

Saturday early-afternoon: USC at Washington State

You'll be watching the Trojans playing in Pullman, but you also should keep an eye on No. 7 TCU at No. 20 West Virginia. At every USC/Wazzu commercial break, you are libel to catch a score in the Big 12 battle. There should be a lot of scoring. You should also take a glimpse at the Georgia/Florida game, if for no other reason than it's the World Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party even if they don't want to call it that any more.

Saturday late-afternoon: No. 3 Auburn at No. 4 Ole Miss

Sure, there is a big Pac-12 North game with Stanford playing No. 5 Oregon, but this isn't the same Stanford team from the last couple of years and the Ducks only look to be getting better each week. Instead, watch Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, who is a future top five NFL Draft pick, try to chase Nick Marshall down. Should be a great offensive vs. defensive matchup.

Saturday evening: No. 12 Arizona at No. 22 UCLA // No. 17 Utah at No. 14 Arizona State

A loss to Arizona would pretty much eliminate UCLA from the Pac-12 South race. The winner of the Utah/ASU game has the inside track to the Pac-12 South title.
