No. 21 Michigan vs. No. 22 Michigan State highlights the best matchup the Big Ten has to offer this weekend while No. 15 Texas Tech vs. No. 18 Oklahoma State is sure to provide entertainment as well. The guys on set will definitely be debating these top-25 clashes on Saturday morning. 

If you're looking for predictions for these games, be sure to tune in just before noon as the crew makes its weekly game picks.

There'll also be plenty of chatter about the teams at the top. Although Alabama and Oregon are both on a bye in Week 10, the two national championship front-runners will be discussed. After all, the Ducks have a massive meeting coming up Thursday against Stanford in Palo Alto while the Tide will host rival LSU next Saturday, per Chris Fowler on Twitter:

The crew will also preview Baylor's upcoming conference tilt against Oklahoma on Thursday along with Ohio State's Saturday afternoon showdown with Purdue.

Of course there are sure to be some intriguing on-set interviews and prerecorded segments that will provide viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at the biggest storylines in college football. Expect a majority of those pieces to center on the colossal matchup between Miami and Florida State.

Analyst David Pollack will also answer viewer questions during the show, per College GameDay on Twitter:

Any questions left unanswered by the former Georgia linebacker will likely be tackled over the course of the three-hour show. But if college football talk doesn't interest you, no need to worry. The clever signs hovering above the crowd and the constant buzz generated by those in attendance are sure to entertain.
