One of the best times of the year is when the air has cooled off in the Fall and good football is on the television. Today in college football, there are several good games on the docket.

Some of the ones to keep an eye on:

11:00am CT: North Carolina St. vs. #3 Clemson - Why watch this one? Because the Clemson Tigers’ starting quarterback, Deshaun Watson, is a lot of fun to watch. Pick: Clemson Tigers by a landslide.

2:30pm CT: #1 Alabama vs #9 Tennessee - Why to watch this one? Because it’s top-10 football featuring two SEC teams! The Tide should easily dispose of the Vols, but Tennessee has shown a lot of fight this season despite dealing with almost as many injuries as the Chicago Bears. Pick: Tennessee keep it close for 3 quarters, then Alabama pulls away in the 4th. Crimson Tide by 3 touchdowns.

6:00pm CT: #12 Ole Miss vs #22 Arkansas - Why to watch this one? Similar to the game above, it’s two ranked SEC West teams playing on national television. Both the Rebels and the Razorbacks have a chip on their shoulder, and this game should feature some good between-the-tackles football. Pick: Razorbacks get the upset at home thanks to winning the turnover battle.

7:00pm CT: #2 Ohio St. vs #8 Wisconsin - Why to watch this game? The immoveable object in the Badgers’ defense will be facing the unstoppable force in the Buckeyes’ offense. No one has challenged the Buckeyes this year, but we all know how dangerous Wisconsin can be at home. Pick: Ohio State in a low scoring battle. The Badgers can’t win if they can’t score points, no matter how good their defense is.
