Your College Football Saturday Viewing Guide: November 18, 2017

The scheduling principles are really ruining the whole deal here.

Today’s going to be a little bit of a bummer of a Saturday of college football, guys.

The #1, #2, and #6 teams in the country are playing buy games today. In fact, #2 Clemson‘s buy game is so depressing, it’s on ACC Network Extra and not actually on broadcast television. With those three teams essentially holding onto 99% win probabilities, it kind of puts a damper on the day’s activities.

With that said, there are a whole bunch of interesting games to watch. #4 Oklahoma are on the road, and while they’re playing Kansas, road games are road games, and the Sooners have clanked one of those in Big 12 play already this year. #5 Wisconsin is hosting #25 Michigan in the only game of the day between two ranked squads. Sliding down the top 25 rankings a little bit, #15 UCF tries to stay undefeated on a road trip to Philadelphia to play Temple in one of the more quietly important games of the day.

We’ve got 22 games with a ranked team involved today, when it’s all said and done, and that’s still pretty good. There’s a couple of spots where SEC Network and Big Ten Network are running regional coverage, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Here’s your schedule of events for the day.
