College Football Schedule This Week | 2022 Week 10
Level up your school spirit with CableTV.com’s weekly college football schedule, featuring channel listings for this week’s top matchups.
This week marks the return of one of college football’s finest traditions—mid-week MACtion, which refers to games between schools from the Midwest-based Mid-American Conference. Over the years, MACtion’s been home to future NFL and college football stars alike.
Players like current San Diego Chargers player Khalil Mack sit alongside players like Jordan Lynch (former Northern Illinois quarterback and Heisman finalist!) and Dri Archer (very, very fast) in the proverbial MACtion Hall of Fame. This watch guide always endorses opportunities to watch cool football stuff, and when you get to watch on a weekday night? Even better.
For this week’s edition of the CableTV.com College Football Watch Guide, let’s break down Week 10’s best games.
CableTV.com’s Game of the Week
Tennessee at Georgia | CBS
Vols quarterback Hendon Hooker transferred to Tennessee under the mildest circumstances: his career at Virginia Tech was fine, and he began his first season at Tennessee as the backup quarterback.
But since then, Hooker’s proceeded to lead Tennessee out of the SEC hinterlands with aplomb. The Vols are undefeated this season thanks to, among other things, Hooker’s sterling 21–1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and Vols wide receiver Jalin Hyatt rewriting the record books every week.
The Vols head into this weekend’s No. 2 versus No. 1 matchup against a Georgia team that—outside of a brief scare at Missouri—has quickly dispatched its opponents with its reserves of giant, fast, or giant and fast five-star players. On paper, this game has a lot in common with 2019’s LSU–Alabama game, which also featured a No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup with two teams capable of turning the scoreboard into a pile of soot. Considering that Tennessee’s already been in one scoreboard-scorching matchup this season, we’d expect similar results this weekend.
Other college football games to watch
Texas Tech at TCU | FOX
This blurb’s mostly an excuse to link to TCU’s Hypnotoad hype video. All glory to the Hypnotoad!
As for the football side, TCU is one of the last remaining undefeated teams thanks to its potent offense, which ranks fifth overall in points scored. Texas Tech is equally aggressive through the air, but at 4–4, they’re more than a few steps behind TCU in the rebuild department.
Alabama at LSU | ESPN
For all the jokes everyone got off about Bayou Brian Kelly and his summer stock O Brother, Where Art Thou? Cajun accent last winter, let’s not forget the man can coach a football team. LSU is a surprising 6–2 in Kelly’s inaugural season, with its only losses coming against Florida State and Tennessee. The Tigers will face an Alabama team that needs to run the table to maintain its playoff goals.
Ohio State at Northwestern | ABC
The last time Ohio State and Northwestern met, both teams played in a tighter-than-expected Big Ten Championship Game that ended in a 22–10 win for the Buckeyes.
Since then, each team’s headed in very different directions. Ohio State’s gone 19–2 over the past two seasons thanks to a roster stocked with players who can make Penn State’s lineup look like a JV squad:
As for Northwestern?
- The Wildcats are 1–7 this season and 4–16 over the past two seasons.
- They rank second-to-last in the Big Ten in points scored and 120th out of 131 FBS football teams.
- They rank 94th overall in yards allowed per game.
- Their most recent loss was a 33–13 loss against Iowa, a team with an offense so historically bad, it spurred questions about whether Iowa flouted state nepotism policies when hiring offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz.
Pull the blinds and dim the TV if you choose to watch this game. Ohio State’s favored by 38 points, and their peak offensive output this season was a 77–21 win against Toledo. This week, they may exceed it!
