Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)
5.Iowa at. Maryland (Friday, 8 PM ET, FS1)
Iowa needs to continue winning games to prove that they are a for real team and can make the College Football Playoff. Maryland, also undefeated could use a win over the Hawkeyes to propel themselves into the top 25 conversation. Projected Score: Maryland 24, Iowa 21

14.Michigan at. Wisconsin (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FOX)
Wisconsin fell out of the top 25 following a loss to Notre Dame 41-13. Michigan, however, remains steady at 4-0, following a win over Rutgers. This should be a tough test for both squads as they continue through their Big Ten slates. Projected Score: Wisconsin 27, Michigan 23

8.Arkansas at. 2.Georgia (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ESPN)
ESPN’s College GameDay is headed to Athens for a top ten duel between the Kirby Smart’s tenacious Georgia Bulldogs and Sam Pittman’s upstart Arkansas Razorbacks. Georgia has beaten Clemson and three other teams that they easily destroyed like UAB, South Carolina, andVanderbilt. Arkansas swept the state of Texas, beating Rice, then 15th ranked Texas, and then seventh ranked Texas A&M as well as a dominant win over Georgia Southern. This will easily be Arkansas’ toughest game to date, facing off against an offense, led by QB JT Daniels that can score in a hurry and a defense better than any other in the country, thus not many will give Arkansas a shot to win this game. But, on the flip side, Georgia’s offense has not seen many like the Arkansas defense. Barry Odom’s bunch flies to the football, and only allows about one huge run per game. It will be interesting to see what happens as Arkansas faces its true first test. Projected Score: Georgia 30, Arkansas 20

7.Cincinnati at. 9.Notre Dame (Saturday, 2:30 PM ET, NBC)
Notre Dame clobbered Wisconsin 41-13 and will have to face a hard-nosed Cincinnati team this week. Marcus Freeman, the defensive coordinator for Notre Dame, was the defensive coordinator the last several years for Cincinnati, so things will be interesting. Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder continues to impress at QB and will have to continue it as they head to South Bend. Projected Score: Notre Dame 31, Cincinnati 24

12.Ole Miss at. 1.Alabama (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, CBS)
Alabama, following a tough win over Florida, destroyed Southern Miss 63-14 last Saturday night. One might say that when Ole Miss QB Matt Corrall and the Rebels (48 points versus the Tide a year ago) come into Tuscaloosa on Saturday afternoon that it will be the Tide’s toughest test to date. The Ole Miss defense looks improved from last year, especially considering they gave up 63 points to the Tide offense last year, and have been more multiple on that side of the ball. The key to the game, as this will be a shootout, will be which defense can force a turnover or multiple turnovers. Projected Score: Alabama 59, Ole Miss 49

10.Florida at. Kentucky (Saturday, 6 PM ET, ESPN)
Florida heads to Lexington at 4-0. Kentucky, despite boasting an undefeated record as well, has not looked as successful with single digit wins against both Chattanooga and South Carolina. Florida should control this game and come out with a win. Projected Score: Florida 28, Kentucky 10

Indiana at. 4.Penn State (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
Tom Allen’s team has not had the best follow-up, at least up to last season’s success. The Hoosiers head to Happy Valley for another test against a top four Penn State team with that is talented on all three sides of the ball. Penn State should get another quality win when Indiana comes in on Saturday night. Projected Score: Penn State 35, Indiana 24
