Clemson-Georgia among college football games to watch this year
Here’s a look at five college football games to watch this season.
Clemson vs. Georgia (in Charlotte, NC), September 4
This is how you open the season, with two title contenders facing off in a showdown that will carry significant weight throughout the college football playoff process. The game means more to Clemson; Georgia can make up for a loss in the ever-treacherous SEC.
Oregon, Ohio, September 11
Want to break that five-year playoff drought, Pac-12? Win this game. Get your best schedule to send a message that your conference belongs to the last four. It’s the league’s best chance to be in the mix in December.
Notre Dame vs. Wisconsin (in Chicago), September 25
The Badgers don’t play in Ohio State or Indiana during the regular season, which creates a need for a brand win. Notre Dame would fit into that category, and the Irish would give their resume a boost with a victory over one of the Big Ten’s best-projected teams.
Alabama at Texas A&M, October 9
There are four ranked teams on the Alabama schedule, but, on paper at least, Crimson Tide’s toughest test will be at College Station. Texas A&M’s only loss per year was in Alabama. This is his chance to get revenge.
State of Iowa in Oklahoma, November 20
This meeting could determine the Big 12 title in the regular season. Last year the two schools split into two games, with Iowa State winning in the regular season and Oklahoma winning in the title game for their sixth straight Big 12 crown. , the winner of this meeting will also have to win the conference title match to reach the playoffs.
