Saturday is a monster day for SEC football. Four unbeaten teams clash in two games with national championship implications.
By midnight, either Georgia or South Carolina will be celebrating in Columbia. In Gainesville, either LSU or Florida will be partying hard.
But you already knew that.
On Tennessee's only open date of the season, there are a multitude of interesting college football games beyond the SEC boundaries.
Here are some of them and why it's worth paying attention.
Northwestern at Penn State: The Wildcats are 5-0 and, what do you know, Penn State isn't as pitiful as we imagined. In contrast to Arkansas, the Nittany Lions (3-2) have overcome adversity and won three straight, thanks to a defense allowing only 13.6 points a game.
Bowling Green at Akron: In Year Four at BG, Dave Clawson's offense is averaging a piddling 19.6 points (111th nationally). Maybe Clawson could get some tips from Terry Bowden. The Zips are averaging 492 yards and 38.6 points. That includes 344 and 27, respectively, in Neyland Stadium.
Michigan State at Indiana: Mike Griffith is leaving the News Sentinel after 15 years to jump on the Michigan State beat. We wish him well and hope his first order of business isn't picking up the pieces after a loss to the Hoosiers.
Virginia at Duke: It appears David Cutcliffe has his best team since arriving in Durham. The Blue Devils are 4-1, their only loss at Stanford.
Kansas at Kansas State: While the Jayhawks hope Charlie Weis can lead them out of the wilderness, Bill Snyder just keeps working miracles at K-State. Snyder, who turns 73 on Sunday, is 27-15 in his return to the sideline (since 2009) and has another terrific team (4-0) with victories against Oklahoma and Miami.
West Virginia at Texas: The Mountaineers' first Big 12 road trip is a humdinger. WVU averages 53.0 points and Geno Smith leads the nation in total offense with a staggering 456 yards a game. Texas averages 47.3 points. First team to punt loses.
Miami at Notre Dame: It's not the "Catholics vs. Convicts" of two decades ago but it's not bad. The 'Canes are 4-1, losing only to Kansas State. The Irish are 4-0 and boast the nation's No. 3 defense, allowing 9.0 points a game.
ULM at MTSU: This Sun Belt showdown is the best game in the state today. (Well, the only competition is Rice at Memphis). Louisiana Monroe (2-2)
has won at Arkansas and the Blue Raiders (3-1) at Georgia Tech.
UNLV at Louisiana Tech: Derek Dooley's old team will be 5-0 after tonight. The Bulldogs average 52 points a game and have beaten Houston, Illinois and Virginia.
Nebraska at Ohio State: The Huskers make their first trip to the Horseshoe as a Big Ten member. If you don't like a lot of red on your screen, don't watch this one.
Washington State at Oregon State: The Oregon Ducks get most of the hype in the Pacific Northwest, but the Beavers are 3-0 with victories against Wisconsin (3-2), UCLA (4-1) and Arizona (3-2). Look for Mike Leach's Cougars to walk the plank.
Iowa State at TCU: Iowa State (3-1) is no pushover for a team that suspended its quarterback over a DUI incident. But the Horned Frogs can win with defense. They allow only 7.25 points, second behind Alabama nationally.
