College Football Open Thread: Week 5

New, comments

There are some fantastic match-ups this week in college football.

NFL scouts likely rack up as many frequent flyer miles as any other profession out there, and this week they have dispersed throughout the country to try and find next year's (and 2018's) future NFL stars.

They have some good games to watch this week... Here are some highlighted games for Saturday:

#11 Tennessee Volunteers vs. #25 Georgia - 2:30pm CT, CBS

#8 Wisconsin vs #4 Michigan - 2:30pm CT, ABC

Oklahoma vs #21 TCU - 4:00pm, FOX

#3 Louisville vs #5 Clemson - 7:00pm, ABC

Also not listed above as a featured game, but something to catch if you're able to: LSU Tigers (2-2) vs Missouri Tigers (2-2). Why is this worth catching?  LSU fired head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron after last week's loss to the Auburn Tigers, and now are facing a better-than-their record Missouri Tigers team.

LSU is turning things over to defensive line coach Ed Orgeron, who has a slightly better pedigree than defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. It will be interesting to see if the Tigers go into full melt-down mode now that Miles has been fired, or if they respond positively.

This is your Saturday College Football Open Thread... Have fun!
