Five to Watch: Weekend features solid slate
All of the college football world is counting down the minutes for Super Bowl 42.5 between Ohio State and USC, but the rest of the weekend also will be full of quality matchups.
Games on Thursday and Friday match coaches who used to be on the same staff. Greg Schiano and Butch Davis coached together at Miami, and their current teams (Rutgers and North Carolina, respectively,) face off on Thursday night (ESPN, 7:30). However, their game didn't make the cut this week.
It's tough to imagine, but Michigan-Notre Dame will have second-class status this week. Still, it's a critical game for rebuilding programs for the second consecutive season.
And keep an eye out for two non-"Big Six" West Coast schools when Fresno State plays host to Wisconsin and BYU welcomes UCLA.
Here are the top five games for the third week of the season.
All times Eastern.
