4 College Football Games You Won’t Want to Miss on November 14, 2020
The hype surrounding last weekend’s matchup between Clemson and Notre Dame wasn’t met – it was exceeded. As we turn the page and look ahead at week 11’s slate, we’re slapped with another major clash in the ACC.
With that being said, I’m not even including the battle between Miami and Virginia Tech in my “can’t-miss” games of the week. Four others stood out above that one as the best college football games to watch on Saturday.
Take a look.
Alabama Crimson Tide vs. LSU Tigers
- Where: Tiger Stadium – Baton Rouge, FL
- Time: 6:00 pm EST
- Line: Alabama -28, O/U 71
Three losses and a host of missing players make this SEC tilt look a bit lopsided on paper. Then again, you can bet your bottom dollar Ed Orgeron will have his troops fired up to welcome the top-ranked Crimson Tide into Death Valley.

Hopefully this one can go off without a hitch. You’ll rarely get a chance to see this many high-level NFL prospects on the field at the same time.
Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Maryland Terrapins
- Where: Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium – College Park, MD
- Time: 3:30 pm EST
- Line: Ohio State -24.5, O/U 72.5
Buckle up for a boatload of points in College Park. And don’t look now, but there’s a chance that Justin Fields isn’t even the most dynamic quarterback in this matchup.
After posting a 191.4 quarterback rating in a thrilling victory over Minnesota, Taulia Tagovailoa was even better in last weekend’s upset win in University Park (198.4. rating).

Before you write off the Terps at home, know that they destroyed Penn State last weekend despite closing as a 27.5-point underdog.
Northwestern Wildcats vs. Purdue Boilermakers
- Where: Ross-Ade Stadium – West Lafayette, IN
- Time: 7:30 pm EST
- Line: Northwestern -3 O/U 49.5
Nobody would have guessed that the November 14th game between Northwestern and Purdue would feature a matchup of two undefeated Big Ten teams. Nevertheless, an unblemished record is at stake Saturday in West Lafayette.
Still waiting for word from Jeff Brohm regarding the status of Rondale Moore, at least one Boilermakers standout wideout will be in uniform.

Yeah, that's five-straight games and a program record.

SMU Mustangs vs. Tulsa Golden Hurricane
- Where: Chapman Stadium – Tulsa, OK
- Time: 7:00 pm EST
- Line: Tulsa -2.5, O/U 63
Tulsa hosts 19th-ranked SMU on Saturday evening in what should be a back-and-forth affair. The Cincinnati Bearcats are receiving loads of attention in the AAC, but don’t forget about the only two one-loss teams in the conference.
Mustangs QB Shane Buechele leads the nation in passing yards and SMU is coming off of a couple of blowout victories. If you’re not used to betting sports online, you’re probably a bit miffed as to why the Golden Hurricane are favored.
And there you have it – the four best college football games to watch on Saturday. If you’re looking for the best bets and upset picks, those will be released here.
