We take a look at the college football schedule and the notable games and prospects playing in them.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Another Saturday loaded with games is here. There are no matchups between two ranked opponents this week, but there are many teams knocking on the door of the top 25, and with a win today they can get in there.

#16 Stanford at Washington

The Cardinal head to Washington facing an undefeated Huskies team, who is now coached by former head ball coach of Boise State Chris Petersen. Stanford may have one of the best defenses in college football, but their offense has struggled mightily in the red zone. Dynamic Cardinal receiver Ty Montgomery could be the difference maker today. The 6'2" receiver already has 22 catches on the season with two scores, and also has a punt return touchdown.

Arkansas at #6 Texas A&M

This game is being played at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. The Aggies appear to be a fine tuned machine, even after losing Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans. Manziel's successor, Kenny Hill, hasn't missed a beat in terms of production for the A&M offense. Hill has been dangerous and efficient, thrrowing for 1,359 yards and 13 touchdowns, while throwing just one interception. If Arkansas keeps this game competitive it will be because of their running back duo of Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams. The tandem has combined for 881 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.

Tennessee at #12 Georgia

Georgia comes in with a lot of weapons on both sides of the ball. Bulldogs quarterback Hutson Mason has yet to throw an interception this year, and is completing 71% of his passes. Managing the game is all Mason really needs to do with Heisman candidate Todd Gurley in the backfield. The only way the Volunteers keep this a ballgame is because of their defense, which is ranked No. 31 in points against currently.
