Penn State at Michigan | FOX

Like the NFL’s NFC East conference, the Big Ten’s East division is a juggernaut. Well, at least in both cases, the top three teams are.

Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State all sit undefeated at the top of the Big Ten table. So when we saw the Michigan-Penn State meeting on the Week 7 calendar, it was only natural for us to make it our Game of the Week selection.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines are taking care of business this year. Their defense is averaging 11.3 points allowed per game, and their offense is not too shabby—quarterback J. J. McCarthy is impressive so far.

Penn State is the underdog in this matchup, especially when Michigan has the 12th man on its side. The Nittany Lions’ last couple of victories weren’t all that special, but they had a Week 6 bye to rejuvenate. It’s just unfortunate that Penn State doesn’t have Chad Powers on its roster.

Alabama at Tennessee | CBS, Paramount+ Premium

For the uninitiated, the Alabama-Tennessee rivalry often occurs on the third Saturday in October. This year won’t deviate from that tradition, as Week 7 sees the Alabama Crimson Tide traveling to Knoxville to face the Tennessee Volunteers.

There are many layers to unpack with this game, but we’ll keep it brief. First, it’s a college football rivalry that dates back to 1901—there’s a lot of history between the two sides. And second, both teams are undefeated—meaning a win for either side could shake up the Associated Press Poll rankings.

Oklahoma State at TCU | ABC

A cowboy could easily defeat any horned frog. But as we say here at, never judge a sports matchup by its team mascots.

This weekend, the TCU Horned Frogs host the Oklahoma State Cowboys. It’s a Big 12 Conference battle between two sides that boast potent offenses. While last year saw Oklahoma destroy TCU 63-17, this season’s bout shouldn’t be another blowout—many project TCU to narrowly win. But predicting college football results seems especially difficult this season.
