Week Five: College Football Open Thread

Scott Sewell-US PRESSWIRE

Tons of great matchups up and down the schedule today, folks!

The best "others receiving votes" team ever is on vacation in preparation of taking on 8th-ranked and national power Florida State next week (GO TERPS!). That doesn't mean that you are left without some great collegiate action on the first Saturday of the fall, however.

Plenty of great matchups between Top 25 teams after a pretty lackluster Week Four schedule.

The 3:30pm ET time slot features two awesome match-ups (that I'll miss because I have the pleasure of watching my son's 14&U squad get ran over, again).

SEC powers No. 6 LSU and No. 9 Georgia clash in Athens on a game that can be watched on CBS. Also, still-independent and 22nd-ranked Notre Dame hosts Big 12's Oklahoma, sitting at No. 14. Two good tilts that feature a lot of potential pro players.

Here's a look at the pre-season candidates for the Nagurski and Outland Trophies.

At 630pm ET, the SEC takes the spotlight again, as two-time defending national champion and No. 1 ranked Alabama plays host to No. 21 Ole Miss, who hasn't played since putting a whooping on Texas back on Sept. 14th.

At 8pm ET, the Big Ten enters the stage, as No. 23 Wisconsin travels to the land of the buckeye to take on Urban Meyer's 4th-ranked Ohio State squad.

Of course, those are just the highlight games, there's plenty of other action that's going on, with kickoff times starting at 12 noon eastern. Here's 506Sports rundown of televised games to help you out.

Who are you watching? Who are you rooting for? Let's talk about it and sit back and enjoy this video from the CFB folks here at SB Nation.

And why stop you're video watching there, when you can check out My Three Stars from last week's decisive win over the Rams!
