No. 8 Nebraska @ No. 19 Texas A&M, 8:00PM ET
The Aggies certainly look like a different team since the benching of preseason SEC Offensive Player of the Year Jerrod Johnson was benched for Ryan Tannehill. After three straight losses in the middle of the season, Texas A&M has won four in a row thanks to Tannehill. The Aggies will have their work cut out for them this week against Nebraska, which is 10th in the nation in scoring defense.

No. 9 Ohio State @ No. 20 Iowa, 3:30PM ET
The Hawkeyes are likely out of contention in the Big Ten after losing to Northwestern last Saturday. But that doesn’t mean they won’t take solace in ruining the Buckeyes’ title hopes. Ohio State needs two more wins to claim at least a share of the Big Ten title and there’s only two teams left on its schedule: Iowa and Michigan next Saturday at the Horseshoe. The Buckeyes have won six of their past seven games against the Hawkeyes at Kinnick Stadium, so they’re traveling to a place where they’ve had success in the past.

No. 16 Virginia Tech @ No. 24 Miami, 3:30PM ET
After losing to Boise State and James Madison to start the year, the Hokies have rattled off eight in a row. Now they can clinch the ACC Coastal Division on Saturday if they can beat conference rival Miami. Jacory Harris still isn’t healthy enough to suit up, so that means Stephen Morris will make his third straight start for the Hurricanes, who have won two in a row. The last time these two teams played in Miami, the Canes beat the Hokies 16-14 in 2008.

No. 13 Arkansas @ Mississippi State, 7:00PM ET
For the second week in a row, the Bulldogs will have their hands full with a tough SEC foe. A week after losing to Alabama, Mississippi State will host an Arkansas team that ranks third in the nation in passing offense and 13th in points scored. Considering what Alabama’s Greg McElroy (227 yards, 2 TDs) did against the Bulldogs’ last week, it’s scary to think what Ryan Mallett can accomplish this week. Still, if Mississippi State can get its rushing attack back on track after being held below their average last week, the Bulldogs will make a game of it in Starkville.
