The One To Watch: Missouri at Georgia
Mizzou is undefeated on the year, and Georgia is without almost every single offensive skill position starter that played against Clemson. The home crowd should give an advantage to Georgia, but Missouri is playing excellent football and James Franklin has largely erased a disappointing 2012 with his play to date. This will be the SEC shootout of the week.
If You Like Tire Fires: Kansas at TCU.
Two of the most breathtakingly inept offenses will be squaring off in Fort Worth.
Of Interest To Cincinnatians: Memphis at Houston, USF at UConn
Memphis looks competent for the first time since DeAngelo Williams ruled the roost. That competency will get the first big road test of the year at Houston. Was last weeks UCF game a fluke or a sign of things to come.

The One To Watch: Oregon at Washington
The Ducks get their first big road test of the post Chip Kelly era. The Huskies came close to knocking off the all offensive line all the time Cardinal and now face a completely different kind of challenge, albeit one that they are almost custom built to face. This will be bright and shiny PAC 12 football at its best.
If You Like Tire Fires: Virginia at Maryland
The only good thing about this game is Stefon Diggs.
Of Cincinnatian Interest: Miami (OH) at UMass
Someone is going to win and a half empty stadium.

The One To Watch: Georgia Tech at BYU.
A real chance that we could see 1,000 yards and less than 25 total passes. Two all run all the time offenses with back breaking defenses. A seriously undrrated game this week.
If You Like Tire Fires: Bowling Green at Mississippi State
Not a whole lot of offense on hand here.

|10:30 p.m. ET||California||at||11 UCLA||ESPN2|
|10:30 p.m. ET||Oregon State||at||Washington State||ESPNU|
The One To Watch: California at UCLA
Two Air Raid influenced offenses with really strong ground games. This one will be good enough that you can skip the rest.
