NCAA Football: Syracuse at Clemson Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Week 6, almost halfway through the season! And now we finally get some better games in each time slot. The noon slate starts with the Red River Shootout which appears to feature two decent teams this year. We’ll get an idea of just how decent Texas is against Oklahoma. The Sooners have started well but do have some weaknesses on defense.

At 12:30, NC State hosts Boston College. Currently ranked #23, the Wolfpack will remain ranked with a win and provide Clemson their first ranked opponent following the bye.

While Clemson is hopefully beating Wake Forest soundly, there are two other 3:30 games worth keeping tabs on. LSU at UF is going to give us a much better idea of how good these teams are. When UF lost to Kentucky, it seemed like the Gators might be pretty bad, but since then they’ve beaten Tennessee and Mississippi State while Kentucky has beaten Mississippi State and South Carolina.

The other 3:30 game to watch is FSU at Miami. After an opening week loss to LSU, Miami has looked better. They’ve made a change at QB and are once again the favorites to earn a trip to Charlotte for the ACC Championship game (Pro-tip: if you’d like to go to that game, bet on Clemson to beat NC State by buying now and save yourself $50). If Miami wins here, they’ll likely rack up enough wins to remain ranked for the ACC championship.

During the evening shift Notre Dame - Virginia Tech may be the best game of the evening. Or you can watch Auburn - Mississippi State.
