The college football games in Week 6 that you should absolutely have your eye on include SEC, Big-12 and Pac-12 matchups with title implications.

This weekend, college football will give you all the great matchups you can handle. We’ve boiled it down to the Top 5 games that are must-watch.

But first, how about some honorable mentions?

Auburn probably won’t have enough to pull an upset on Georgia, but the Bulldogs have looked vulnerable the last two weeks. It could get interesting at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

BYU is ranked. Notre Dame is not. The Irish are favored nonetheless. Maybe their season isn’t as dead as it looked a few weeks ago? We’ll find out at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Finally, Washington State is just a couple of bad minutes against Oregon away from being undefeated and ranked. As it is, they’re 4-1, the first team out in the AP poll and hoping to pull an upset on USC at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX.

Must-watch college football games of week 6: 5. Texas A&M vs. Alabama

Alabama should roll over this hapless Texas A&M team. Then again, college football is unpredictable and you never know when the upset might come.

This time, Jimbo Fisher has already proven he can get the better of his former employer. His Aggies upset the Crimson Tide last year. That’s why this game was supposed to be the marquee matchup of the week.

Instead, Texas A&M has fallen flat on its face with losses to Appalachian State and Mississippi State. Meanwhile, Alabama has regained the No. 1 ranking just in time for this matchup.

Alabama isn’t impervious though. They struggled with Texas and nearly got bit by Arkansas. They also have uncertainty around quarterback Bryce Young, who suffered a shoulder injury last week.

It may be a blowout, but it could also be a riveting matchup when kickoff comes at 5:00 p.m. on CBS.
