5 College Football Games Worth Watching In Week 4
The Big Game
#9 UCLA (3-0) at #16 Arizona (3-0) – Saturday, September 26 (Arizona Stadium, Tucson, AZ)
The Pac-12 gets the primetime spotlight on Saturday night as the two the conference’s undefeated squads go head-to-head in Tuscon. UCLA (currently favoured by three on the road) survived a close call against BYU last week in a game that featured Josh Rosen showing his freshman status. Reemerging as a Pac-12 monster will be on the mind of Jim Mora Jr. as he faces a Wildcats team that’s blown out also-rans for three weeks and are facing their first real challenge of the season. (No offense, Northern Arizona.)
Four More To Check Out
#18 Utah (3-0) at #13 Oregon (2-1) – Saturday, September 26 (Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR)
Speaking of Pac-12 battles with highly ranked schools, Oregon could see their playoff dreams completely turn to dust if #18 Utah thumps them in Eugene. The Utes are hoping star rusher Devontae Booker against a shaky Ducks defense. At the moment, oddsmakers haven’t trotted out a line on this game and that’s likely tied to the quarterback health issues tied to both colleges.
#22 BYU (2-1) at Michigan (2-1) – Saturday, September 26 (Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, MI)
Jim Harbaugh’s reign at Michigan got off to a very shaky start, but the Wolverines appear to have turned things around and looked good pummeling UNLV last week. That said, BYU are a few tiers higher on the quality chart than UNLV. The Cougars are coming off a dissappointing 24-23 loss to UCLA and will be itching for bounce back glory. Michigan have been tapped as a 4.5 favourite in this contest.
#3 TCU (3-0) at Texas Tech (3-0) – Saturday, September 26 (Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock, TX)
Two Lone Star State schools are set to do battle as Texas Tech would love to slay the Horned Frogs and start off the year 4-0. TCU (a 7.5 favourite on the road) haven’t had as impressive of a start as they’d like and the Red Raiders have the potential to feast on a defense that gave up 500+ yards versus SMU. Of course, TCU QB Trevone Boykin could exit this game with a ridiculous stat line of his own once the final whistle sounds. A proper thrashing of a better than expected Texas Tech squad would be a big plus for TCU’s playoff campaign.
Cincinnati (2-1) at Memphis (3-0) – Thursday, September 24 (Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Memphis, TN)
The NFL officially shifts back into showing underwhelming Thursday contests this week (see: NYG/WSH), so why not give this AAC matchup a shot? Undefeated Memphis have been racking up 54 points-per-game and they’ll look to keep that total high against Cincinnati. The Tigers were initally expected to win by seven at home, but the line’s been bumped up to 9.5 for Memphis.
