Week 7 of the 2013 college football season doesn't deliver us any matchups with two teams in the Top 10, but we do have three games involving two Top 25 teams to highlight the week.
All of those are compelling matchups, too.
The one with the most potential to shake up the rankings comes as the No. 2 Oregon Ducks travel to take on the No. 16 Washington Huskies at 4 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
The Huskies (4-1) have been playing excellent all season, and they proved they can hang with the nation's best by taking Stanford to the wire last week—and on the road, no less—in a 31-28 defeat.
At the end of that game, the Huskies defense made some key stops against a mauling Cardinals offense. That bodes well for Washington, as it must now take on the high-octane and energy-depleting attack of Oregon (5-0). The Ducks are second in the nation in scoring.
Also, Washington's well-balanced offense, led by quarterback Keith Price and running back Bishop Sankey, should be able to find some success despite Oregon possessing the nation's second-best scoring defense.
Aside from this matchup, we also have No. 10 LSU hosting No. 17 Florida for an SEC showdown.
This will be an interesting battle. The Tigers will have to try to win with their offense, while Florida's hopes rest in its defense.
In each of its six games, LSU has posted more than 400 yards of offense while scoring at least 35 points. Meanwhile, Florida is second in the nation by allowing just 217 yards per game, and the 12.2 points Florida is allowing is the fourth-best mark.
Both of these teams have struggled on the other side of the ball, respectively, and ultimately that is where this game is going to be decided. Whichever team can exploit the other's weakness with the most effectiveness will come out on top.
The third matchup of ranked teams comes as the No. 25 Missouri Tigers travel to take on the No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs.
Georgia's high-powered offense is putting up 39.8 points per game. That is good for 24th in the nation and it is even more impressive considering that Georgia has already played three games against teams ranked in the Top 10 at the time of the game.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are off to a perfect 5-0 start, and it's won each game by at least 15 points. However, the Tigers have yet to play a ranked team.
At 46.6 per game, the Tigers are outscoring Georgia, but they also haven't faced the same level of competition. That doesn't mean they can't compete with Georgia, but simply that there are definite question marks.
No matter what happens, it is safe to expect plenty of points in that one.
Now, have a look at this comprehensive viewing schedule to help satisfy the insatiable need for football.
