Week 6 of the college football season features a handful of marquee matchups that will be the talk of the sports world come Sunday morning.

Of course, the schedule also features a few "gimme" games along the way for some of the nation's top teams.

Oregon versus Colorado figures to be a pretty one-sided affair, as does the matchup between Louisville and Temple. Oregon and Louisville are NCAA powerhouses and the schedule-makers gave each team a gift for Week 6.

Those games won't be nearly as exciting to watch as some of the other games scheduled for Saturday. If you like contests with little contention and lopsided efforts, then those are the games for you. If you like smashmouth football with tightly contested matchups, then you'll want to tune in to some of the choice games of the week.

Before choosing which games you'd like to watch, it's worth knowing when the games start and where you can watch them. Following is the TV schedule for every game taking place on Saturday.

No. 22 Arizona State at Notre Dame

After getting knocked out of the Top 25 following a loss in Week 5 to Oklahoma, Notre Dame will be hungry and ready to climb its way back in Week 6 against the Arizona State Sun Devils.

It won't be an easy task for Notre Dame to crack the polls with two losses for the season, but wins now will do wonders for their standing down the line.

Arizona State boasts one of the most potent offenses in the nation, though, so it'll be difficult for Notre Dame to get back on track. The Sun Devils average 44 points per game (11th in the nation) and their passing game ranks seventh in the nation, averaging 359 yards.

Quarterback Taylor Kelly and running back Marion Grice form a formidable duo. Kelly has passed for 1,370 yards and 11 touchdowns on the season while Grice has scored 12 total touchdowns (eight rushing and four receiving) in four games.

Containing Grice and forcing mistakes by Kelly will be the goals for Notre Dame's defense, though it will be difficult to keep Grice out of the end zone.

The Irish won't beat Arizona State if it comes down to a shootout, so Notre Dame will need to play its best defense of the season to hang with the Sun Devils. Defense fueled Notre Dame's run to the national title game last season, but Notre Dame's defense is allowing an average of 24 points and 364 yards per game this season.

Look for Notre Dame to put up a good fight in this one, even if it results in a loss.

 

No. 4 Ohio State at No. 16 Northwestern

In a matchup of unbeaten Big 10 teams, Ohio State and Northwestern look to erase the other team's perfect mark. Ohio State is competing for a national title, though, whereas Northwestern will be fighting for a bowl game.

Ohio State enters 5-0 with its most recent win coming against Wisconsin for the Buckeyes' first victory against a ranked opponent this season. In an effort to further prove its legitimacy, expect Ohio State and head coach Urban Meyer to look to pound Northwestern early and often.

The Buckeyes have a potent offense headlined by quarterback Braxton Miller and running back Jordan Hall, but their defense has proven to be suspect at times. Northwestern's versatile offense, led by Kain Colter and Venric Mark, will give the Buckeyes a ton of problems on defense.

This game will be a shootout until the very end. It's not often that high-ranked opponents play in super high-scoring affairs, but don't be surprised if both teams reach 40 points or more.

Ohio State made a statement when it beat Wisconsin, but defeating Northwestern could be even more of a marquee win. If Ohio State wants to challenge Alabama for the national title, it will need to start beating these type of opponents with regularity.

Nobody every said the Buckeyes couldn't do it, but they'll have to be firing on all cylinders to make it happen. This game is worth watching.

 

No. 24 Ole Miss at Auburn

Ole Miss may not have scored in its 25-0 loss to Alabama last week, but its fast-paced offense will look to get back on track against Auburn's fast-paced offense in Week 6.

Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace expects "fireworks" when the two offenses meet on Saturday, according to Brandon Marcello of AL.com, and if that isn't enough to draw you to the game, then I don't know what is.

Auburn has been inconsistent offensively, although the Tigers did post good numbers against Mississippi State, as well as in the second half against No. 6 LSU. To bring down Ole Miss, though, the Tigers will have to be consistent from the opening snap.

The game will be interesting because of both teams' defenses and their familiarities with the hurry-up system. Having practiced against it in the days leading up to Saturday's game, each unit should be familiar with the tempo and pacing of the plays.

Expect Wallace to be the difference-maker. Wallace has four touchdowns and no interceptions this season and his ability to control the football in a hurry-up offense is impressive.

Having thrown for 807 yards in four games, Wallace hasn't put up the gaudiest of numbers, but he's a player to watch in this one. If Wallace can continue to control the football, Ole Miss should have no problems in handling Auburn.
