Here's who I'm watching for in the afternoon and late games today.
TCU at Oklahoma State (2:30, FOX)
Prospects: TCU: WR Josh Doctson, OKST: DE Emmanuel Ogbah
This will probably be the best game to watch today. Expect points, points and more points. I'll have my eyes on Josh Doctson, one of the best receivers in the country. He makes everything look effortless, showing off excellent athletic ability and body control.
Emmanuel Ogbah will try to get after Trevone Boykin today. Ogbah has received plenty of draft love so far, most recently from PFF -- who graded him out to be college football's top pass rusher this season. Ogbah will have a tough task trying to contain the elusive Boykin today.
LSU at Alabama (7:00, CBS)
Prospects: LSU: OL Vadal Alexander, WR Travin Dural, CB Tre'Davious White, DB Jalen Mills. Alabama: LB Reggie Ragland, DL Jarran Reed, DL A'Shawn Robinson, RB Derrick Henry
Here's the game we've been waiting for all season long. The winner of this contest will be in the driver's seat of the SEC West and a potential playoff birth. There are prospect matchups all over the field in this one. My favorite will probably be up front in the trenches, however.
LSU's power rushing attack will run head on into Alabama's stout, loaded front seven. Jarran Reed and A'Shawn Robinson will give Leonard Fournette his toughest test of the season by far. Reggie Ragland and Fournette should get to know each other plenty during this one. Watch Vadal Alexander and company attempt to win the battle up front. If they can, LSU should walk away with this one -- but it won't be easy.
Minnesota at Ohio State (7:00, ABC)
Prospects: Ohio State: DE Joey Bosa, S Vonn Bell, WR Michael Thomas, OT Taylor Decker, RB Ezekiel Elliott, LB Darron Lee, DL Adolphus Washington. Minnesota: CB Eric Murray, CB Brian Boddy-Calhoun
Whenever Ohio State takes the field, there are multiple prospects worth keeping tabs on. Cardale Jones will get the start for J.T. Barrett, who is suspended after a DUI citation. Expect a heavy dose of Zeke Elliott, the consensus number one back of this class if he declares. Keep an eye on Minnesota's secondary, too. They have NFL talent at cornerback in Murray and Boddy-Calhoun.
