Week 7: Watching Guide: Two Matches Between Top 10 Teams, A Total Of 6 Top 25 Teams And An Important Meeting In The Big Ten West

As Ohio State gets into the week, let’s take a look at the national college football game we’ll be seeing this Saturday. Nooners Photo: Matthew O’Haren – USA TODAY Sports #10 Penn State vs. #5 Michigan, 12pm on FOX Buckeye The good news for fans is that the most important Big Ten game so far is completely avoiding Ohio-related city hall clashes. The bad news for Buckeye fans is that the game includes Ohio State’s two biggest rivals. Penn State started the season off with a shaky start against Purdue, but Sean Clifford led the Nittany Lions to victory with a touchdown drive in the final 2:30. PSU hasn’t played against an opponent with a current winning record since then, reflecting the fact that Clifford didn’t have to throw more than 217 passing yards in the team’s last four victories. Michigan, meanwhile, has had its shocks since the start of conference play, but it was the first time JJ McCarthy threw 300 yards in a Wolverine jersey against Indiana last week.

Even if PSU leads early in the game, a 35.8% success rate (20th out of 131 teams) in offensive dash play makes it difficult for the Nittany Lions to keep their separation from the Wolverines. If McCarthy avoids mistakes, I expect to see considerable success against the little-tested team of Nittany Lions in their best competition since the start of the season. Minnesota vs. Minnesota #24 Illinois, 12pm Big Ten Network Big Ten Network Big Ten East has one important game, but another game that could go a long way in deciding which team will represent the West in Indianapolis in December is on the other side of the conference. It will happen. finally arrived. After two Big Ten Championship wins in Wisconsin, Bret Bielema looks to Game 3 against Illinois after a division victory over the previous Badgers and last week’s Iowa Hawkeyes. Fighting Illini continues to enjoy success this season following Chase Brown, who has run more than 100 yards in every game so far this season, and got some important pieces from their attrition against Iowa, which ended only with a field goal. Chase Brown. @chasebrown____ x @@chasebrown____ x @lliniFootball pic.twitter.com/HTwyM0ytnf — Illinois on BTN (@IllinoisOnBTN) October 9, 2022 But despite all the successes Brown and Illini have had on the ground so far, Minnesota’s Efforts in the area are even more impressive. The Golden Gophers have missed star running back Mohamed Ibrahim over the past few weeks, but backups Trey Potts and Bryce Williams performed brilliantly throughout the season, combining close to 500 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns. With the uniform success of Minnesota’s running backroom, the Golden Gophers averaged 13th highest expected score this season through rush play and 4th highest success rate on the ground so far. Illinois and Minnesota’s defense both have the top 10 success rates for scoring (Illinois actually owns the best at FBS level at 26%). . Afternoon Photo: Marvin Gentry | USA TODAY Sports Three Ranked Rendezvous and G5 Wildcard When the Big Ten offering closes at noon, the college football game of the day kicks off. The SEC, Big 12, and ACC all offer ranked matchups for viewer consideration, but those looking for a more niche way to spend an afternoon can have the delightful surprises waiting for them at Conference USA. #3 Alabama v #6 Tennessee, 3:30 pm CBSBryce Young’s shoulder injury and Crimson Tide’s disappointing offensive performance this season overtook Alabama last week, with the team winning revenge at home against Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M. I was about to get it. As Young draws closer to a match-time decision for a second straight week, Nick Saban’s team prepares to face Tennessee in a rival game on the third Saturday of October, the most competitive game since at least 2016. The Volunteers have not defeated their cross division. One of his final seasons at Knoxville in 2006, with his last win over opposing teams in their last 15 meetings, was led by manager Phillip Fulmer. Heisman Hooker with a strong look could add signature performance to his Heisman resume, but assuming Young plays, the current recipient would do the same for defending a Tennessee pass, allowing the 24th worst rate of success for an opponent tossing a soccer ball at FBS level. can be done. . #8 Oklahoma State University #13 TCU, 3:30 PM on ABC Kansas may have started the season as an amazing lover of college football, but TCU’s victory over the Jayhawks cemented the Horned Frogs’ status as a legitimate contender in the Big 12. I did. Although quarterback Max Duggan received much praise for the attack’s overall success, last week’s victory at Lawrence came with the help of lead receiver Quentin Johnston, who recorded 14 catches from 206 yards and a game-winning touchdown. Athletes from display @TCUFootball TOUCHDOWN! pic.twitter.com/XAqF6ScuZF — FOX College Football (@CFBONFOX) Oct 8, 2022 Johnston’s high reception totals seem to paint him a target pig, but with TCU on the six-man roster, Duggan is actually playing football this season. Excellent distribution. A receiver with a minimum of 100 receiving yards in 6 weeks. Oklahoma State and Spencer Sanders will stop their work if the Cowboys try to beat the Texas team in a three-game losing streak. #15 NC State vs. #18 Syracuse, 3:30pm ACC NetworkN.C. The State barely avoided a losing streak after entering halftime after losing 17-3 to the Florida State last week. Despite losing quarterback Devin Leary to an injury in an attempt to return, Wolfpack managed to secure their first win in the ACC this season by defeating the Seminoles in the second half. NC State will face another tough challenge this week, in the form of the Syracuse team that started their undefeated season and spent a good week preparing for the Wolfpack. Orange arguably hasn’t faced a better team than Purdue yet, but ‘Cuse has a top 10 success rate with an overall attacking success rate of 49.6%, another good test for an impressive NC State defense. Western Kentucky vs. Central Tennessee, 3:30 PM ESPN+WEEK’s WILDCARD Knoxville in WILDCARD Knoxville Aren’t you crazy about the SEC showdown? Those who are still open to the idea of ​​watching football in Volunteer State today may be interested in a little bit of an upcoming match in Murfreesboro. Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee State both enter with records of .500, but each team has already achieved some records. Noise from the grand scheme of college football this season. Hilltoppers has one of the most passing attacks in the United States after quarterback Austin Reed, making the ninth most throw attempts per game en route to an average of 5th in both yards in both air and pass touchdowns. @Areed365 linked up with @daewood_davis early in the second quarter to put the Hilltoppers forward with an 18 yard TD!#GoTops | #OnTarget pic.twitter.com/gqx5d7MVoi — WKU Football (@WKUFootball) October 10, 2022 The Blue Raiders lack striking stats from WKU, but they do possess one of the season’s most surprising upsets so far after their collapse. there is. Miami pushed Hurricane out of the top 25 by 45-31 at the end of September. With limited success in American football matches in Middle Tennessee, the road to keeping the game competitive goes in a way that could be a fun penalty shootout. Primetime Photography: Mark J. Rebilas | USA TODAY Sports Two More Top-25 Showdowns and Bowden Ball Still Famous for Ranked Football? Luckily, the evening offers a few more interesting games that people might consider including five additional ranked teams from the 19 teams active today. #16 Mississippi State University #22 Kentucky, 7:30 PM SEC Networks After Arkansas’ three straight wins, a new astonishing contender has appeared at SEC West. Mike Leach hummed Mississippi State’s offense in six games as quarterback Will Rodgers threw more than 300 yards in every Bulldogs win, helping nine other wide outs achieve at least a 100-yard receive. Oh man, what catch, @auss_10_ #HailState | : https://t.co/gJtMB7iBH7 pic.twitter.com/Sof3H7Oj7 — Mississippi State Football (@HailStateFB) October 8, 2022 Kentucky had plenty of positive momentum into October, but continued to be sluggish for the second game in a row. . After losing to Miss Ole and furious at home against South Carolina, the Wildcats are looking to regain their footing. The British defense so far has a top 10 success rate for passing plays of 33.3%, which could make for an interesting ball game against Mississippi’s electro-air attack. #4 Clemson v Florida, ABC’s 7:30pm ☣ Danger ☣ Warning ☣ Florida would have entered this matchup list if the Seminoles had completed a comeback against NC last week. However, choking in the second half, Seminole started the season undefeated, looking forward to a three-game losing streak, and briefly jumped into the polls. Considering the Tigers have improved on the offensive side compared to last season, dealing with FSU shouldn’t be a big problem. Dabo Swinney’s offense has so far achieved the top 25 success rate in rush, while Florida State’s defense, conversely, has the 37th worst success rate in defending such a play. The Clemson figure is a clear path to victory on the ground to take this game into a realm of boring compared to other options available. #7 USC vs #20 Utah, 8 pm on FOX Trojans have experienced a brief flirt with their recent catastrophe, but Lincoln Riley and USC continue to step back in a convenient way, remain undefeated and are their favorite team to win the Pac-12. keep it. The Caleb Williams/Jordan Addison connection hasn’t yet fully emerged with some expected early lucrative results, but the former Oklahoma quarterback nevertheless had an impressive season despite throwing the ball under 200 yards in two of Southern Cal’s last three wins. continue to send Caleb Williams is that friend. Touchdown to Mario Williams. #USC pic.twitter.com/KVCYJH6k6O — Trevor Booth (@TrevorMbooth) October 8, 2022 Unfortunately for the Trojans, their first game against ranked opponents this year could be a major challenge to Alex Grinch’s defense. USC continues to have problems with opposing rush attacks, and although Utah has recently improved their throwing propensity and efficiency compared to a year ago, Utes still prefer a run-oriented approach. If the dominant Pac-12 champ can continue to succeed on the ground, he could make a very good comeback that puts Utah firmly back in a position to defend the conference title.
