What are the 25 non-Saturday games of the 2013 college football regular season most worth watching?

Before getting into the list, I’ll break down my ranking logic.

First, I only included games between FBS programs.

Second, I used Athlon Sports’ preseason rankings and B/R’s Randy Chambers’ “Predicting the 2013 Associated Press Preseason Top 25 College Football Poll” to rank each program. Using these rankings, I added up the combined ranking of the game. For example, if the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country were to play each other, I would’ve rated their game a 3. I considered this rating system more heavily than anything else, but I didn’t simply put the 25 games with the lowest rankings on the list.

Third, I used Athlon Sports’ preseason conference power rankings and projected order of finish for each conference. I used these predictions to determine what would be the most important conference games, especially for non-BCS conferences. Big non-AQ conference games replaced games between mediocre BCS teams in some cases.

While scouring over the 2013 FBS schedule, I was delighted to find many non-Saturday games that should have big impacts on conference and national standings.

Feel free to debate the rankings in the comments section below.

With that, let’s start the list.
