College Football Viewing Guide: Week 11

New, 6 comments

Baylor-Oklahoma and Alabama-Mississippi State highlight a week that's expected to be filled with blowouts.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Week 11 doesn't have a smorgasbord of college football action like week 10 did, but there are two huge conference matchups that could shape the College Football Playoff as well as a key AAC game that helps to make up for the slate of games that make the vaunted Tatum/Simpson fight of 1996 look like a fair and reasonable competition. Alabama/Mississippi State could very well dictate who wins the SEC West, while Baylor/Oklahoma will test whether or not the Bears' backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham is for real. Elsewhere on the schedule, Houston and Memphis will battle in a game that will keep all of us entertained as we head to the bar.

And after that, things get pretty grim. Here's your list of top 25 blowouts waiting to happen for week 11:

  • TCU vs. 0-9 Kansas
  • Ohio State vs. a somehow 5-4 Illinois
  • Michigan State vs. 2-7 Maryland
  • Northwestern vs. 2-7 Purdue
  • Notre Dame vs. 3-6 Wake Forest
  • Clemson vs. 3-6 Syracuse
  • Michigan vs 4-5 Indiana
  • Navy vs. 1-8 SMU
  • Oklahoma State vs. 3-6 Iowa State

Those are all incredibly unappealing matchups.

Best Game: No. 2 Alabama at No. 17 Mississippi State. It's in Starksville, so this game has the added benefit of listening to CBS's futile attempts to remove all the cowbell from their broadcast. A Bulldog win keeps them in the SEC West race, but also puts LSU back in the lead.

Worst Game: Texas San Antonio vs. Charlotte. Larry Coker's 1-8 Roadrunners play the 2-7 49ers in a battle of teams that didn't exist in 2010. Could be fun for the novelty value, but watching for too long may induce Ark of the Covenant style eye melting.
