The best possible Week 7 college football viewing plan, with full TV/streaming schedule

Below is the full schedule and the best thing on in each time slot.

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

We went into Week 6 thinking it would be a pretty light weekend, with few apparent marquee games on the schedule. There were only two games between ranked teams, and one ended up being a blowout. Not much going on, right?

Wrong. Texas (!) won a game (!!) against a ranked (!!!) Oklahoma (!!!!), and that was just the start. TCU survived Kansas State with a frenetic comeback effort, Tennessee reversed its fortune with a comeback win over Georgia, Oregon lost to Washington State somehow and four head coaching jobs opened up after losses.

Oh, and don't forget the game lost by spiking the ball on fourth down. That'll live with us forever.

If anything can top last week, it's this week's slate. After a top-20 matchup Thursday, we're treated to four ranked games on Saturday, including two games between top-15 opponents, one of those a bitter state rivalry.

Here's everything that's on, plus exactly which games you should be watching at any given time. Click on your school's name below to check out our blog devoted to your team.

Thursday and Friday removed, for your convenience.

Early shift

Best option: No. 17 Iowa at No. 20 Northwestern, ABC/ESPN2

Spread: Iowa -2.5

There probably won't be many points, but there's more than a good chance this could end up deciding the Big Ten West race.

Plan B: No. 13 Ole Miss at Memphis, ABC/ESPN2

Hello, America. Memphis football is really good. Maybe not "beating Ole Miss" good, but good enough to make things interesting at home. If this gets out of hand, there's always West Virginia-Baylor.

Middle shift

Best option: No. 7 Michigan State at No. 12 Michigan, ESPN

Spread: Michigan -8.5

This is the first time this rivalry game has been super meaningful in quite some time. Can Jim Harbaugh pull off the complete turnaround in year one, or can Mark Dantonio make it seven out of eight?

Plan B: No. 10 Alabama at No. 9 Texas A&M, CBS

This game got extremely ugly last year. The Aggies are hoping for a different result at home.

Late shift

Best option: No. 8 Florida at No. 6 LSU, ESPN

Spread: LSU -9.5

Florida doesn't have Will Grier anymore, but that defense is still nasty.

Plan B: USC at No. 14 Notre Dame, NBC

Another coaching change for USC, but this rivalry game remains constant.

BONUS ROUND: Super late shift

Best option: Arizona State at No. 4 Utah, ESPN

Spread: Utah -7

Todd Graham has had a penchant for knocking off Pac-12 Playoff contenders. Are the Utes next?

Plan B: Oregon at Washington, ESPN2

No matter the quality of the two teams (and this year's not looking great!), this atmosphere is always great.
