College Football Week 4 Schedule & Games to Watch

A look at what's on tap for week 4 of the college football season.

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The eyes of the college football world will be on Tallahassee, FL tonight as the #1 Florida State Seminoles take on ACC rival #22 Clemson. This game was have already the most interesting game to watch today even before 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was suspended. Florida State administration had initially suspended Winston for the first half of tonight's game. Last night around 11pm eastern, FSU announced that Winston would be suspended for the entire game after reportedly not being entirely truthful will his account of the "incident" on Tuesday afternoon.

Despite what you might read from the University, it's likely the change of plans to suspend him the entire game was as a result of significant outside and media pressure.

Games to watch:

Mississippi State at No. 8 LSU

MSU looks to prove the hype is real against the tough Tigers of LSU. I'm not buying into Bulldogs fast start. They're certainly improved but I still think they're not match for LSU and the other powers in SEC. Keep on eye on MSU OLB Benardrick McKinney. The redshirt Junior is a jack of all trades for the Bulldogs defense but he' still incredible raw despite being one of if not the best athlete on the field.

Florida at No. 3 Alabama

The Gators and Tide have dominated the college football world for much of the last 10 years. But after a terrible 4-8 season last year, the Gators are looking to make a statement today against 'Bama and prove that 2013 was an outlier. Both defenses are among the best in the country so I don't expect a high scoring game. Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III would be top-10 pick if he were eligible for the 2015 NFL Draft. He's a stud. Alabama WR Amari Cooper could be one to watch for 49ers fans.

No. 22 Clemson at No. 1 Florida State

Despite the absence of Jameis Winston the Noles should win this game. I'm not sure it will be to the tune of last year's 51-14 drubbing. FSU has NFL talent all of the roster but the absence of their on the field and emotional leader could prove to be the biggest test yet. The Seminoles boast what is arguably the most talented secondary in the nation. Both starting CBs Ronald Darby and P.J. Williams project to be first round picks in 2015. And sophomore safety Jalen Ramsey is among college football's elite.

Here's today's schedule and viewing information. Happy Saturday!
