Here's your full TV guide to Saturday's college football, including free streaming info and what to watch at each time.

Will this be a good college football Saturday? Of course it will. It's a Saturday with college football on it.

If you don't believe me regarding the quality of this schedule, take a look below, where I've broken out each time slot into three categories to help guide your remote. See? Good Saturday.

Four games pair ranked teams vs. ranked teams, with three of those in the SEC, plus a bunch of others that are close. Eleven of 25 ranked teams are still on the road, too. And we've got everything nicely spread out, with at least one big game and big secondary option in each major time period, plus a bunch of stuff sure to go wild late at night.

Previously this weekend, No. 5 Clemson sat on Georgia Tech, No. 24 Utah lurched past USC, and TCU beat SMU in order to retain a skillet trophy. Long live skillet trophies.

Notes on the MUST-WATCHes:

  • Another weekend with at least one all-ranked game in each major time slot, plus others that are close. College football, you're doing a good job of not giving us sad afternoons and overloaded nights! College football isn't a person.
  • Wisconsin and Michigan State struck their latest blows for the Recruiting Rankings Lie crowd by beating LSU and Notre Dame, respectively. They also did the same by looking unimpressive against Georgia State and Furman, respectively. Anyway! You know exactly how grueling and punty this game will be (UW has S&P+'s No. 7 defense and No. 77 offense, for instance), and you'll like it.
  • Georgia at Ole Miss! Around 4 ET, a lot of people sure are gonna be mad at a coach in a visor!
  • Florida-Tennessee should be a delightful, miserable brawl between a team that prefers not to score points and a team sending out a backup quarterback. If you haven't had your fill of punts after the Big Ten game and this one, then you're just gonna have to wait until the NFL kicks off, because ...
  • Oklahoma State-Baylor! Pyew pyew!
  • Stanford-UCLA! Christian McCaffrey vs. Josh Rosen!
  • Arkansas-Texas A&M! Guaranteed overtime in JerryWorld!
  • #Pac12AfterDark! Washington's toughest test so far is a trip to play a team that trailed Grambling State 21-3 at halftime! Nevermind that! Arizona can still put up yards!
  • So yeah, this is the Saturday that equates to eating six hours of thundering vegetables, then diving face-first into the candy jar until this week's version of whatever that Texas-Cal thing was.
