Cheese Substitute: College Football Games To Watch For Saturday, October 27

Manti Teo has a shot to put himself into the Heisman race in Norman, while Florida looks to prove that they're a legitimate title contender. Your early game options are 'dumpster fire' or 'tire fire'.

Happy college football day, everyone. This week features a pretty solid slate of games, but two of the biggest ones are in the SEC and none of the good games are at 11 CT. What is this nonsense? The NCAA needs to step in and correct this, ensuring that there are good games on in every timeslot.

Lists of prospects below come from Chris Steuber, with an asterisk indicating an underclassman.

The best 11 am game is, no joke, Iowa against Northwestern. Iowa are the most random and stupid team on the face of the earth and Kirk Ferentz's buyout is like $20 million. Have fun footing that bill, Iowa taxpayers! You can catch this one on ESPN2.

Northwestern NFL prospects

OLB *Chi Chi Ariguzo, S *Ibraheim Campbell, QB *Kain Colter, OT Neil Deiters, WR Demetrius Fields, OG Brian Mulroe, OLB David Nwabuisi, OT Chuck Porcelli, WR *Kyle Prater, DE *Tyler Scott, OT Patrick Ward, DE Quentin Williams.

Iowa NFL prospects

DT Steve Bigach, DT **Carl Davis, WR Keenan Davis, C James Ferentz, TE *C.J. Fiedorowicz, CB Micah Hyde, OLB *Christian Kirksey, K *Mike Meyer, FS *Tanner Miller, ILB *James Morris, **Brandon Scherff, OG Matt Tobin, QB James Vandenberg.

At 2:30, Florida has a chance to prove their legitimacy at the world's biggest outdoor cocktail party, which is no longer the official name of the UF-UGA rivalry because it promotes binge drinking. As if Georgia and Florida students need to be encouraged to binge drink. This game is 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.

Georgia NFL prospects

OG *Chris Burnette, CB Sanders Commings, OT *Kenarious Gates, DT *Kwame Geathers, DT John Jenkins, DT Abry Jones, DE/OLB *Jarvis Jones, WR Tavarres King, TE *Arthur Lynch, QB *Aaron Murray, LB *Alec Ogletree, FS Baccari Rambo, FB Richard Samuel, DE Cornelius Washington, SS Shawn Williams.

In primetime, you can watch Mississippi State go to Bryant-Denny and pretend they're actually a good football team, or you can watch a game between two second tier teams with shaky offenses. Your best option is probably Notre Dame - Oklahoma, which is on ABC at 7.

Notre Dame NFL prospects

ILB *Carlo Calabrese, C Braxston Cave, TE, *Tyler Eifert, ILB *Dan Fox, OG Mike Golic, Jr., WR John Goodman, WR *T.J. Jones, DE Kaptron Lewis-Moore, OT *Zack Martin, FS Dan McCarthy, SS Zeke Motta, DT **Louis Nix, RB/WR Theo Riddick, OLB *Prince Shembo, SS Jamoris Slaughter, ILB Manti Te'o, WR Robby Toma, OG *Chris Watt, RB *Cierre Woods.

Oklahoma NFL prospects

WR Justin Brown, CB *Aaron Colvin, OG Tyler Evans, RB *Roy Finch, C Ben Habern, SS Javon Harris, CB Demontre Hurst, OLB Joseph Ibiloye, OG *Gabe Ikard, FS *Tony Jefferson, OT Lane Johnson, QB Landry Jones, DE David King, CB *Gabe Lynn, DT JaMarkus McFarland, DT Stacy McGee, FB *Trey Millard, OLB *Corey Nelson, WR *Kenny Stills, DT Casey Walker, DE R.J. Washington, P Tress Way, RB Dominique Whaley, ILB *Tom Wort.
