Your Guide to Watching the Best Week 11 Matchups in College Football

This weekend offers us an absolutely loaded docket of games to watch as we inch closer to the College Football Playoff

NCAA Football: Arizona at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

#12 Michigan State @ #13 Ohio State - (9:00am PT, FOX)

The Spartans and the Buckeyes played key roles in what were probably two of the best games in college football last weekend (albeit with opposite results); Sparty narrowly escaped with a 27-24 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions while OSU lost - pretty handily, I might add - to an impressive Iowa Hawkeyes unit, 55-24. This game may play a role in determining who wins the Big Ten East Division and ultimately receives a berth in the Big Ten Conference Championship game.

#1 Georgia @ #10 Auburn - (12:30pm PT, CBS)

Show of hands: how many of you had the Georgia Bulldogs as the number one team in week 11 when you were putting your rankings together at the beginning of the season? I did not and don’t lie to me by telling me that you did. Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm (11) has been thoroughly impressive as he’s thrown 15 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on the year. Playing in the SEC lends its own unique challenges and this game provides a solid test to see what this kid is made of - if he can take care of the ball and make some plays, look out.

#2 Alabama @ #16 Mississippi State - (4:00pm PT, ESPN/WatchESPN)

The Alabama Crimson Tide face a tough road test as they square off against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Wait, who are we kidding - this is ‘Bama we’re talking about. There seems to always be a wealth of talent down there in Tuscaloosa and this year is no different. Nick Saban has this oiled machine clicking on all cylinders. Even if the Bulldogs give the Crimson Tide everything they’ve got, I’d still be surprised to see any kind of upset at the end of this contest.

#3 Notre Dame @ #7 Miami - (5:00pm PT, ABC/WatchESPN)

If you haven’t watched the 30 for 30 on this rivalry then drop what you’re doing right now and watch it because it obviously gives good insight into why these two teams feel pretty bitter about each other. Brandon Wimbush has been playing well this season (I’m still not really ready to talk about it). Second year head coach Mark Richt, though, has the Miami Hurricanes playing some of the best football we have seen out of that program in years. If it weren’t for this being a top 10 matchup I would say that the acclaimed “turnover chain” on Miami’s sideline is reason enough to tune into this game.

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

#6 TCU @ #5 Oklahoma - (5:00pm PT, FOX)

Baker Mayfield’s (6) campaign for the Heisman Trophy continues its roll as the formidable TCU Horned Frogs come to town. TCU has already defeated one prolific offense from the state of Oklahoma earlier this season - can it expect a repeat performance? The Sooner defense will need to make some stops on their end of things. If that can happen, then they should be well on their way to another win which will get the one step closer to a postseason appearance.
