College Football Schedule Packed with BCS-Busting Games

The week 4 college football schedule includes a number of games that could predict the BCS future. Four that really stand out are between ranked teams, and could definitely dictate which schools become favorites to win their respective conferences.

The best game of the week appears to be a Big 12 showdown between Oklahoma State and Texas A&M. The game will be on ABC for a national audience Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET, and pits two top eight teams against each other. In the latest rankings, Oklahoma State is No. 7 in the AP Top 25 and No. 6 in the Coaches’ Poll. Texas A&M is currently ranked No. 8 in both polls, moving up slightly from last week after beating the Idaho Vandals at home.

While the Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M game might be the best game, the one that will get the most attention will surely be No. 14 Arkansas vs. No. 3 Alabama. It’s another test for the Crimson Tide, providing an opportunity to really cement a spot within the top three teams in the country. It’s not going to be easy, though, because Arkansas will have ideas of an upset and a jump into the top 10.

No. 11 Florida State and No. 21 Clemson take part in the best ACC match-up of the day, making three big-time games all starting at 3:30 p.m. ET. Those choosing to watch college football Saturday are going to have a really tough time deciding which games to tune in to. CBS, ABC, and ESPN will all be battling for the same viewers, likely splitting the television audience into three segments around the country.

The night cap is No. 2 LSU vs. No. 16 West Virginia on ABC, with a start time of 8 p.m. ET. In yet another game where the Tigers have to play a ranked team, LSU can really strengthen its non-conference schedule quality with a win here. Over on FX, No. 1 Oklahoma will be hosting Big 12 rival Missouri at the same time.

The Pac-12 Conference will have the final two games of the night, with No. 10 Oregon vs. Arizona on ESPN2 and No. 23 USC vs. Arizona State on ESPN. Both games will take place at 10:15 p.m. ET, and should give a national audience the chance to see what some of the powers in the Pac-12 have to offer this year.

By the end of Saturday night this week, quite a few upsets may have taken place. That could lead to a big shuffling of the national polls.
