The Fat Five Games of the Week Other Than Texas A&M/Alabama

It may be hard to believe, but there are other college football games being played today than the Texas A&M/Alabama match up. None of the other ones have the weight this one does, but are big games in their own right.

So if you just don't want to watch the Texas A&M/Alabama game or want to know what you should record on your DVR here are my Fat Five games other than the Aggie/Bama one.


No. 16 UCLA @ No. 23 Nebraska

I think the Bruins have one of college football's best kept secrets in Brett Hundley. He is a talent that has yet to reach his potential and he is already pretty darn good. On the other side there is Taylor Martinez and Ameer Abdullah, a powerful duo that will be tough to stop.

Kickoff is at noon.

No. 4 Ohio State @ California

The Cal team is not bad, but what will make this  one interesting is whether Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller plays. A loss could cause severe damage to the OSU national title hopes, but should they put Miller back in at less than full strength (MCL sprain from last week) and lose him for more that would be disastrous.

Kickoff is at 7 pm.

Vanderbilt @ No. 13 South Carolina

The Commodores are one of the most talented but underrated teams in college football. A win here would put them on the map and force other teams to take notice. South Carolina on the other hand needs to bounce back after a hard loss to a good Georgia team last week.

All eyes will be on defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and what the Gamecocks try to do to get him more involved. So far this season teams have been able to run away from him and get away with it. Kickoff is at 7 pm.

No. 25 Ole Miss @ Texas

The Longhorns are desperate for a win. Last week's debacle at BYU cost defensive coordinator Manny Diaz his job and there is no reason to believe his replacement is going to be any better. A win could hold off the calls for head coach Mack Brown to be the next to go, but a loss will certainly intensify the calls for his head.

He is going to have a really hard time taking the Rebels down especially with starting quarterback David Ash on the bench. Kickoff is at 7 pm.

No. 20 Wisconsin @ Arizona State

After a long day of great action this one stands to be a pretty good night cap. The Sun Devils have a pretty good gunslinger at quarterback in Taylor Kelly. On the other side is a three-headed monster in the backfield of Melvin Gordon, James White, and Corey Clement.

Ground and pound vs Air it out; kickoff is at 10:30 pm (if you haven't passed out yet).
