COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 16 Michigan State at Michigan Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

After relatively slim pickings the last few weeks we get 3 ranked on ranked matches this week including a rivalry match between undefeated top-ten teams that should be plenty of fun. And you get to top it all off with a UW nightcap. Follow along in the comments with your fellow Dawgs fans as you enjoy the action across the college football landscape.

SUGGESTED VIEWING GUIDE (all times PT)

All Betting Lines provided by DraftKings Sportsbook

9:00 am- #6 Michigan (DK Betting Line -4.5) at #8 Michigan State, FOX

It’s been a few weeks without a premier matchup on the schedule nationally but we finally get one here in the battle for the state of Michigan. Both teams have undefeated in conference play Ohio State still looming ahead of them but the winner of this game almost certainly is just one Buckeye upset away from a division title. A reminder that Washington hosts Michigan State in the non-con next season. A Spartan win here may give Mel Tucker the juice he needs to jump to the LSU job in the offseason...

12:30 pm- #1 Georgia (DK Betting Line -14) at Florida, CBS

Things have fallen apart for Florida ever since they nearly upset Alabama. Now they get to host the new #1 team in the country and things could get ugly. This isn’t a great TV window. None of the games on ABC, FOX, ESPN, or ESPN2 have a spread within 7 points so you may as well watch the best team involved.

#4:30 pm- #20 Penn State at #5 Ohio State (DK Betting Line -18.5), ABC

Last week Penn State lost in 9OT to Illinois. This week they get to face Ohio State who I guarantee you would not go 5 straight scoreless overtime periods even against #1 Georgia’s defense. This is the last chance for Ohio State to drop another game before it gets the 2 Michigan schools in back-to-back weeks later in the season.

Alternate game 4:00p: #10 Ole Miss at #18 Auburn (DK Betting Line -3), ESPN

The Ole Miss offense led by Matt Corral is a ton of fun to watch and this should be a more competitive game than the overcard listed above so I don’t blame you if you decide you want to start with this game first.

#7:30 pm- Washington at Stanford (DK Betting Line -2), FS1

Duh.
