Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)
17.TCU at. 19.Kansas (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FS1)
TCU and Kansas are the surprises of the Big 12 this year as both have gone undefeated. Kansas is in the AP top twenty-five for the first time since 2009 and will look to continue their winning ways with QB Jalon Daniels at the helm. Expect the atmosphere to be crazy in Lawrence as ESPN’s College GameDay heads there for the first time ever. Projected Score: Kansas 34, TCU 31

8.Tennessee at. 25.LSU (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ESPN)
LSU gets to host red-hot Tennessee in Death Valley tomorrow. LSU has gone undefeated since their season opening loss at the hands of Florida State. Jayden Daniels has been the pioneer at QB for the tigers but they will have a tough task at hand dealing with Heisman favorite Hendon Hooker and the Vols. Tennessee’s defense has looked okay throughout the season but in a hostile road environment like Tiger Stadium, they will have to string multiple stops together. While LSU does have home field advantage here, it is tough for me to go against the Volunteers. Projected Score: Tennessee 31, LSU 24

Texas vs. Oklahoma (Dallas) (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ABC)
With Quinn Ewers expected to start tomorrow, Texas should have a much better chance to defeat the reeling Oklahoma Sooners, who have lost their last two games. Brent Venables’ defense has looked atrocious during losses to Kansas State and TCU and will look to get going against an offense getting their star signal-caller back. With Ewers back, expect the Longhorns to air it out to star receiver Xavier Worthy while keeping the Sooners honest with arguably the best running back in the country in Bijhan Robinson. The game is always phenomenal in the Cotton Bowl ever year, who will be the star of this one? Projected Score: Texas 27, Oklahoma 21

11.Utah at. 18.UCLA (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, FOX)
Utah has looked terrific since their season-opening loss to Florida. The Utes will go into the Rose Bowl and defeat the Bruins. Projected Score: Utah 35, UCLA 20

Texas A&M at. 1.Alabama (Saturday, 8 PM ET, CBS)
Before the season started, the Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher and Alabama head man Nick Saban were in the headlines because of Saban calling out Fisher’s recruiting tactics in attaining the best recruiting class ever. A&M has since been upset by Appalachian State, bounced back against Miami and Arkansas, and then fallen to Mississippi State. After hurting his shoulder during a win over Arkansas last Saturday, last season’s Heisman winner Bryce Young will be a game-time decision tomorrow (Update:He has been ruled out by a source). In his place would be Jalen Milroe, who had a relatively pedestrian game against Arkansas, outside of a terrific fourth quarter where the Razorbacks defense fell apart. For the Aggies, starter Max Johnson has been ruled out so former starter Haynes King will be taking snaps. King’s lack of ability to get the ball down field worries me about their chances in the game. Even if Young does not play, Alabama is surely not to lose to a team that upset them last season at Kyle Field. Projected Score: Alabama 49, Texas A&M 28
