Most weekends in the fall hold two or three special games for the general fan–plus the big game for your team, of course. But this Saturday, November 8, features an outrageous bounty of great match-ups. Are you ready? SIX games this weekend feature two teams that are BOTH ranked in the Top 25. That’s 12 of the top 25 teams playing each other, and nine of them have just one loss–so their college football playoff hopes remain alive.
Feels a little bit like conference championship week in the NCAA basketball, where everyone’s fighting for a spot in the March Madness big dance. Imperfect as they are, these new college football playoffs are adding some zing. Here are your big games on this, the greatest college football Saturday in decades.
