As the NCAA football season is set to hit Week 4, there are quite a few games on the schedule to keep an eye on.
Plenty of big conference games are being played and there are a handful of them that could potentially have College Football Playoff implications.
Let’s take a look at which five games in particular are “must see” games of Week 4.
5. Michigan Wolverines vs. No. 22 BYU Cougars
Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines are looking to win their third straight victory and draw some attention with a huge victory over a ranked team. BYU has had a very impressive season so far and are looking to make another statement as to why they should be viewed as a contender for a fairly big bowl game.
Michigan is going to play a very competitive football game and it will be very intriguing to see what happens on Saturday afternoon.
4. Arkansas Razorbacks vs. No. 14 Texas A&M Aggies
If the Arkansas Razorbacks want to get back any of the hype that they had surrounding them prior to the season, they will have to come away with a victory over Kevin Sumlin’s tough Texas A&M squad.
There is no question that the Aggies are favored to take this win, but the Razorbacks are very dangerous at home.
Don’t be surprised if this comes down to the wire and the atmosphere of the fans should make this an electric game to watch.
3. Arizona State Sun Devils vs. No. 19 USC Trojans
Cody Kessler and the USC Trojans are heading into a key game to get back in the college football playoff race against an Arizona State football team that is without question better than their lack of a ranking. Arizona State is going to give USC a run for their money, especially at home. This game is going to be extremely entertaining, although the Trojans should be able to spoil the home crowd’s evening if they play to their full potential.
2. No. 13 Oregon Ducks vs. No. 18 Utah Utes
Obviously just looking at the rankings, this game is going to be one of the best of the day. The Oregon Ducks and Utah Utes are going to go head-to-head in a very crucial Pac-12 matchup.
Oregon should come away with a big victory, but it wouldn’t be too terribly surprising if the Utes’ defense can step up and force a couple turnovers.
1. No. 16 Arizona Wildcats vs. No. 9 UCLA Bruins
Josh Rosen and the UCLA Bruins have started off the season 3-0, but they are going up against another 3-0 team that is more than capable of knocking them off in the Arizona Wildcats.
If the Bruins want to stay perfect this season, they need their star freshman quarterback to step up and play a huge game.
Arizona’s offense has quite a few playmakers as well, but it will all come down to whether or not their defense can put pressure on Rosen and force him to make a key mistake or two. If Scooby Wright returns, that would be a huge help.
