XFINITY's #5ToFollow - Friday, October 25

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

1. UCLA Bruins vs. Oregon Ducks

Details: Saturday, October 26 @ 7:00 PM ET - Autzen Stadium - Eugene, OR

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: ESPN College Gameday is in Eugene for one of the top games in the state of Oregon Saturday night - UCLA vs. Oregon! This #Pac12 has the spotlight in this one as No. 12 UCLA and No. 3 Oregon huddle up in one of the rowdiest environments in all of college football - Autzen Stadium. The Ducks are clicking on all cylinders: 8.3 yards per play, 57.5 points per game, 643 yards per game, and the nation's top-rated QB in Marcus Mariota. UCLA will go toe-to-toe with the Ducks with stellar sophomore quarterback, Brett Hundley, leading the way with 300+ passing yard per game. The Bruins are out to prove they are major players in the #Pac12, but can they derail the Ducks on their run to a national championship?

2. South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Missouri Tigers

Details: Saturday, October 26 @ 7:00 PM ET - Memorial Stadium - Columbia, MO

Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY

Why Watch: The state of the SEC East is in flux as the traditionalists cannot believe the Missouri Tigers are running things and not skipping a beat! Matty Mauk is a redshirt freshmen QB who has stepped in and succeeded with his dual threat ability (295 pass yd 1 TD, 1 rush TD last week). The Gamecocks bring a 21st ranked team to Columbia and the most feared man in college football will be unleashed - DE Jadeveon Clowney. Can Clowney deflate the Missouri moxie or will the Tigers get one step closer to the SEC Championship game Saturday night?

3. Stanford Cardinal vs. Oregon State Beavers

Details: Saturday, October 26 @ 10:30 PM ET - Reser Stadium - Corvallis, OR

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: The Pac attack continues on #5ToFollow as another top-25 matchup in Stanford vs. Oregon State has to be a featured game this weekend! Stanford is a tough program, built on a strong running game and dominant defense. Cardinal running back, Tyler Gaffney, is coming off a 171-yard, 2 touchdown road performance, and will get plenty of carries against the Beavers Saturday night. While the Cards run game will be key, can they slow the nation’s best passing offense? OSU's making history with the offensive leader in passing yards (Sean Mannion - 2,992 pass yards) and receiving yards (Brandin Cooks - 1,176 receiving yards)! Plenty of offense to keep you up for the late night feature game on ESPN!

4. Chelsea vs. Manchester City

Details: Sunday, October 27 @ 12:00 PM ET - Stamford Bridge – Fulham, London, U.K.

Watch Here: NBCSN with XFINITY

Why Watch: Before the NFL kicks off, start your Sunday with kickoff in Fulham. Chelsea sits at the second spot in the Premier League table, while Man City is fourth and ready to pounce. The thing the Citizens do better than the rest is score, leading the #BPL with 20 goals. Chelsea counters this offensive encounter with a league-leading defense, allowing only five goals to date (second best in the League). While the match itself is enticing, you will want to keep the volume up as Everton goalkeeper, Tim Howard, joins Arlo White on the call. This is the first ever active player to join a broadcast and you will want to watch and listen to history being made during this match on the #BPLonNBC.

5. Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings

Details: Sunday, October 27 @ 8:30 PM ET - Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome - Minneapolis, MN

Watch Here: NBC with XFINITY

Why Watch: The Green Bay Packers are revered as one of the NFL's top teams, but a 1-2 road record has the Minnesota Vikings licking their chops. These two teams have a rivalry that dates back to 1961 and is known for games that have you on the edge of your seat until the final whistle. The Packers are known for the arm of Aaron Rodgers, but have been pounding opponents with rookie back, Eddie Lacy. Lacy has averaged 22+ carries and 100+ rush yards per game over his last three. While the Cheeseheads are clicking on offense, the Vikings have Adrian Peterson, the running back who the Green Bay is still seeing in their nightmares. Peterson rushed for 409 yards and 3 TDs in two games vs. the Pack last season. Will we see a primetime Peterson performance on #SNF, or will it be a win on the road for A-Rod and the Packers?
