Cheese Substitute: College Football Games To Watch For Saturday, October 20

Haven't seen Johnny Football yet? Check him out against LSU.


This week's NCAA football schedule is, sorry to say, not nearly as good as the last two weeks. There are three excellent games on, however, and many others that could produce a lot of points and some potential upsets. The three biggest games are conveniently spread out for your viewing pleasure.

Prospect lists come from Chris Steuber's blog. An asterisk indicates an underclassman.

The best 11 a.m. CT game features a very fun Texas A&M team against LSU's tough defense. Not listed below is Johnny Football, aTm QB Johnny Manziel, because he's just a freshman. His numbers are absolutely insane, and if he leads his team to an upset win over LSU, he becomes a serious Heisman contender. This game is on ESPN.

Texas A&M NFL prospects

OT *Luke Joeckel, OG Patrick Lewis, OT *Jake Matthews, RB Christine Michael, DE/OLB *Damontre Moore, DL Spencer Nealy, WR Uzoma Nwachuku, OLB Sean Porter, WR Ryan Swope, FS Steven Terrell.

LSU NFL prospects

DE Chancey Aghayere, K Drew Alleman, WR *Kadron Boone, TE Chase Clement, DT Josh Downs, DE Lavar Edwards, OT *Chris Faulk, OT Alex Hurst, DT *Bennie Logan, C P.J. Lonergan, SS *Craig Loston, QB Zach Mettenberger, DE/OLB *Barkevious Mingo, ILB *Kevin Minter, DE/OLB *Sam Montgomery, FS *Eric Reid, WR Russell Shepard, CB *Tharold Simon, RB *Spencer Ware, OG *Josh Williford.

Florida's campaign towards the SEC title game continues with a tough match against South Carolina, who couldn't manufacture much offense against LSU last week. Both of these teams are a weird mixed bag, and this one could get derpy. You can catch it at 2:30 on CBS.

Florida NFL prospects

ILB Jon Bostic, FB *Trey Burton, WR *Andre Debose, DT *Dominique Easley, SS *Matt Elam, FS Josh Evans, DT *Sharrif Floyd, RB Mike Gillislee, WR Frankie Hammond, Jr., C *Jonotthan Harrison, OLB *Jelani Jenkins, OLB Lerentee McCray, OT Xavier Nixon, TE *Jordan Reed, K Caleb Sturgis.

South Carolina NFL prospects

CB Akeem August, TE Justice Cunningham, OLB DeVonte Holloman, OL T.J. Johnson, RB *Marcus Lattimore, CB *Jimmy Legree, QB *Connor Shaw, FS D.J. Swearinger, DE Devin Taylor, ILB Shaq Wilson.

The best primetime game is in the Big 12, where West Virginia attempts to rescue their BCS hopes after getting steamrolled in Lubbock. Collin Klein and K-State are looking awesome, because Bill Snyder is magic. Watch this game at 6 p.m. on FOX.

Kansas State NFL prospects

ILB Arthur Brown, DE Adam Davis, OT Manase Foketi, WR Chris Harper, RB *John Hubert, QB Collin Klein, CB Nigel Malone, OG Nick Puetz, TE Travis Tannahill, OLB Justin Tuggle, FB Braden Wilson, SS *Ty Zimmerman.
