After Week 4 saw way too many lopsided matchups, Week 5 promises to bring college football back to thrilling and meaningful games.
There are four games featuring matchups between teams in the top 25.
Georgia and LSU looks to be the closest and most enticing matchup of these games. That battle will be played at Sanford Stadium in Georgia at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be aired on CBS. It should be worth watching.
No. 6 LSU is off to a 4-0 start and is coming off of a 35-21 win over Auburn. Quarterback Zach Mettenberger has made vast improvements from last season. The Senior quarterback is hitting nearly 65 percent of his passes on the season and has 10 touchdowns to just one interception.
Meanwhile, Georgia (2-1) suffered a heartbreaking 38-35 loss to Clemson in their first game, but bounced back the next week and easily handled South Carolina with a 45-21 win.
Senior quarterback Aaron Murray is turning in another fine season. He is hitting 72 percent of his passes and has seven touchdowns to two interceptions.
This one is shaping up to be a high-scoring SEC affair.
Another marquee game I'm anxious to watch will come from South Bend when No. 22 hosts No. 14 Oklahoma.
The Irish are a solid 3-1 on the year, but they are also coming off of two lackluster performances with narrow wins over Purdue and Oklahoma State. The Notre Dame defense that was so stout last year has struggled at times this year, and it will be facing a high-powered Oklahoma offense in this one.
The Sooners are a perfect 3-0, but this will be their first test against a ranked team. We should learn a lot about these teams from this game.
The other top-25 matchups feature a couple of serious national title contenders with No. 1 Alabama hosting No. 21 Ole Miss and No. 4 Ohio State hosting No. 23 Wisconsin.
Considering both Alabama and Ohio State are at home, it is really hard to see them losing. However, both should be entertaining games.
Now, feel free to check out all the viewing information you can handle.
