Week 10 comes complete with five days of football.

Tuesday, Nov. 2

Middle Tennessee State at Arkansas State

It’s the Sun Belt on a Tuesday night. I don’t really have much to say on the matchup I suppose it will have some impact as to see if a second Sun Belt team will get a bowl.

Wednesday, Nov. 3

Rutgers at South Florida

Now the Big East is up midweek. There is not much going on in the conference. This is really just about position and bowl-eligibility.

Thursday, Nov. 4

Buffalo at Ohio

MAC game on a Thursday night with one of the teams that is in position to play for the conference title.

Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech

Top teams in the ACC Coastal division playing for division supremacy. Virginia Tech is in better position.

Friday, Nov. 5

Western Michigan at Central Michigan


Central Florida at Houston

It is entirely possible that this game will be played again in a few weeks, but for the Conference USA title.

Saturday, Nov. 6

Illinois at Michigan

Both teams have five wins so someone is coming out bowl-eligible.

Louisville at Syracuse

Both teams have shown improvement this year and Syracuse is in position to make a really good bowl.

North Carolina State at Clemson

Both are kind of sitting in the middle of the ACC Atlantic standings but NC State could still make a move to the top.

Air Force at Army

Doesn’t hold the same as Army vs. Navy but still exciting and Army isn’t half bad this season.

Maryland at Miami

In my opinion, Maryland is trending up while Miami might be headed down. Both should make decent bowls.

Nebraska at Iowa State

Nebraska is still in control in the Big XII North but Iowa State isn’t out of it just yet either.

Hawaii at Boise State

To be honest, at the beginning of the season, I don’t think anyone thought that Hawaii would be one of the teams to offer Boise a challenge. Now they present on of the biggest in the conference with their dangerous passing attack.

Northwestern at Penn State

Joe Paterno goes for win number 400 against a fairly dangerous Northwestern.

TCU at Utah

Possibly the biggest game in the history of the Mountain West and one of the biggest of the year.

Washington at Oregon

Oregon is the new No.1 team in the BCS. Playing back at home against a Washington that suddenly finds itself without their star player.

Nevada at Idaho

Heading toward matchups with Boise State, both of these teams would like to take momentum into the game.

Oregon State at UCLA

Oregon State is still alive in the conference race and could get to the Rose Bowl if they can win out.

Arkansas at South Carolina

South Carolina is still playing to win the SEC East. They need the win to keep that hope alive. Arkansas is playing spoiler and would love to knock down the East’s only ranked team.

Arizona at Stanford

If Arizona wins they control their own destiny for the Rose Bowl but still has to go through Eugene. Stanford already fell in Eugene and would need to win out and have some help along the way.

Alabama at LSU

The SEC might be down a little this year but not the west. The SEC West is eating itself alive and this one is just another bite.
