Over a quarter of all FBS teams (34 out of 130) are idle this week, including Alabama and Clemson. Meanwhile, Georgia, LSU, Oregon and Texas return to action after having last weekend off.
The 48-game schedule starts with a pair of games on Thursday, and 2 more on Friday - only one of which will receive interest outside of their own fan bases. Thursday games are Temple at East Carolina, and Georgia Southern at South Alabama. Friday's schedule has San Jose State at New Mexico, but features a showdown of two of the American Conferences top teams when UCF visits Cincinnati.
The annual round-robin battle for the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy between Air Force, Army and Navy begins on Saturday with the Falcons visiting the Midshipmen.
An SEC heavyweight confrontation takes place this week as Auburn visits Florida. The school's haven't met since 2011 and this is Auburn's first trek to Gainesville since 2007.
Other top games this week are - in no particular order - Cal at Oregon, Iowa at Michigan, Michigan State at Ohio State, TCU at Iowa State, and Washington at Stanford.
