The Badgers go into the Big House for the first time since 2010, while we get a great top-5 matchup in the ACC on Saturday night.

College football fans, today is your day. Nearly every ranked team is in action and we have a pair of games featuring top-ten opponents - and as a bonus, those two games are staggered, so you can go from one right into the next.

The first one up is the surprising 4-0 Wisconsin Badgers, who take their #8 ranking into Ann Arbor to visit the Michigan Wolverines. These two teams played six years in a row from 2005 through 2010, with the home team winning each of the first five games before the Badgers rolled over the Big House 48-20 in 2010. As a fun fact, not a single one of Scott Tolzien’s 15 passes in that game touched the ground - he completed 14 passes to Badgers receivers and threw one interception.

However, these two teams have not played since, a five-year layoff before renewing this Big Ten rivalry at the Big House this season. All-time, Michigan owns the series 49-14-1.

In the nightcap, we find an up-and-coming Louisville team facing last year’s runner-up, the Clemson Tigers, in a top-five ACC battle. Caan Lamar Jackson continue his torrid start and potential Heisman campaign on the road against his toughest opponent yet? Tune in to find out.
