College football games today: Week 7 schedule and predictions for every Top 25 game

Week 7 college football schedule features undefeated Georgia hosting undefeated Kentucky. Predictions for all the college football games today.

At this point in the season, we usually have a pretty good idea of which teams are contenders and which ones aren’t. Usually. But maybe it’s because so many of the teams in the Top 25 are in uncharted territory that some of the teams are like off-brand corn flakes: they look right but taste wrong.

But we’re here, and so is Week 7, Great Value Corn Flakes and all.

Texas played Oklahoma tough last week before collapsing and probably win that game more often than not if they play it over. Looking at advanced metrics, Oklahoma State is getting it done on defense. Texas is getting it done on offense. In this case, Coach Sark gets it done.

Elsewhere in the early games, Indiana has a chance to right the ship — and burst a bubble — at home against Michigan State.

Auburn travels to Arkansas, where the Tigers can put the nail in the Razorbacks’ surprising early-season success.

The spotlight game this week, surprisingly, is Kentucky at Georgia. The Wildcats are off to an incredible start this season, handily beating Florida and the remains of LSU. Georgia is their last challenge this year.

Ending the day, let’s pick two upsets because that means chaos, and that’s been this year’s weekly motif. Boston College will knock off NC State, giving BC, Clemson, and NC State one conference loss chasing Wake Forest in the ACC Atlantic and Utah knocks off Arizona State during Pac-12 after dark.
