Best College Football Games November 7, 2020

With the Pac-12 joining the party this weekend, we can officially say that the 2020 college football season is in full swing. This weekend’s action gets off to a fast start Friday night on the blue turf thanks to the clash between BYU and Boise State.

Zach Wilson nationally televised against a quality opponent sets the tone for what promises to be a dramatic next day.

With that in mind, here are the five best college football games to watch on November 7.

Clemson Tigers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

  • Where: Notre Dame Stadium – Notre Dame, IN
  • Time: 7:30 pm EST
  • Line: Clemson -5.5, O/U 52

It’s #1 vs. #4 and yet all anybody can talk about is the absence of Clemson’s quarterback. Trevor Lawrence will be on the sideline Saturday evening in South Bend, although it’s up to freshman D.J. Uiagalelei to lead the Tigers offense.

After trailing to BC by as many as 18 last weekend, Dabo Swinney’s well aware that there’s a noticeable chink in his armor. The question is – does Clemson have enough left on both sides of the ball to fend off a hungry and motivated Fighting Irish attack?

We’ll find out Saturday on NBC.

Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs

  • Where: TIAA Bank Field – Jacksonville, FL
  • Time: 3:30 pm EST
  • Line: Georgia -3, O/U 53.5

The Gators didn’t let a halftime brawl distract them – a 24-point thumping over Missouri sets the stage for the SEC East matchup everyone has been waiting for. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, they’ll be without their standout safety who currently leads the nation with three interceptions.

LeCounte was involved in a motorcycle accident following his 13-tackle performance in a victory over Kentucky. QB Stetson Bennet has now thrown five interceptions in his last two games but received a vote of confidence from Kirby Smart.

“Ultimately, we feel like Stetson gives us the best chance to win right now.”

Worth noting – this is a neutral site game being be played on the Jacksonville Jaguars home field.

Michigan Wolverines vs. Indiana Hoosiers

  • Where: Memorial Stadium – Bloomington, IN
  • Time: 12:00 pm EST
  • Line: Michigan -3, O/U 54

After a sharp performance on the road in Minneapolis, the Wolverines blew it versus in-state rivals at the Big House last Saturday. Jim Harbaugh now steers his 1-1 squad into Bloomington this weekend for a date with the 2-0 Hoosiers.

Indiana has been stingy against the pass and Michael Penix Jr. is wheeling and dealing under center.

Of all the Big Ten games scheduled on November 7th, this is one most likely to be a “barnburner.

West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Texas Longhorns

  • Where: DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium – Austin, TX
  • Time: 12:00 pm EST
  • Line: Texas -6.5, O/U 55

Moving over to the Big 12 for one of the best college football games to watch on Saturday. Texas is coming off an emotional overtime victory on the road in Stillwater, West Virginia is coming off blasting 16th-ranked Kansas State in Morgantown.

The most intriguing aspect of this battle in Austin will be Sam Ehlinger and the high-powered Longhorns offense “locking horns” with the hard-nosed Mountaineers defense.

Ehlinger has accounted for a nation-leading 27-touchdowns and UT averages 44.3 points per game.

WVU allows just 19.8 ppg and holds opponents to a Big 12-low 255.7 yards/game.

Something’s got to give at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Washington State Cougars vs. Oregon State Beavers

  • Where: Reser Stadium – Corvallis, OR
  • Time: 10:30 pm EST
  • Line: Oregon State -2, O/U 65.5

Among the highest totals on the boards at 65.5, look out for a track meet to ensue Saturday evening in Corvallis. The Cougars defeated the Beavers 54-53 last year in Pullman with Mike Leach calling the shots and Anthony Gordon running the show.

This time around it’ll be Nick Rolovich and Jayden de Laura – the guy I predicted would start at QB when I made a Washington State vs. Oregon State pick.

Speaking of Pac-12 predictions for this game, the line movement has been glaring. Oregon State has shifted from +3 to -2 – it’ll be interesting to see where this number closes.
