If you have an appetite for SEC games, this is the weekend to make a reservation for your couch.
The Week 10 slate features six games between SEC schools, and all 14 SEC teams will be in action. And you’ll have at least one SEC game to carry you throughout the day, with the first game kicking off at noon and the last one getting an 8 p.m. ET start.
There’s also plenty of intrigue in these matchups. Of the five SEC teams ranked in the initial College Football Playoff rankings, three of them will be on the road. Here’s the TV schedule, with possible streaming options as well. And if the SEC isn’t your thing, there are other college football games to wet your beak with.

The noon slate offers three SEC games and two games with top-10 teams on the road. Auburn has been one of the best teams in the country lately, but it will get a rested Vanderbilt team that defeated Georgia in its last SEC game.
Texas A&M, rather surprisingly, came in at No. 4 in the first College Football Playoff rankings, ahead of an unbeaten Washington team. The Aggies will have chance to prove their ranking against a Mississippi State team that defeated them the last time they met in Starkville.
As for the afternoon window, the big SEC game is No. 11 (CFP) Florida at Arkansas. The Razorbacks are coming off a bye week and have shown they can put up points against top defenses. The Gators will look to get the SEC East’s second win of the season against the SEC West.
As for the best non-SEC games, two top-10 teams play early games on the road. No. 8 (CFP) Wisconsin is coming off an overtime victory against Nebraska and takes on a Northwestern team that barely lost to No. 6 (CFP) Ohio State. No. 7 (CFP) Louisville takes on Boston College, a week after needing some last-second Lamar Jackson magic to knock off Virginia. Both these teams should be on upset alert.
|Time||SEC Matchup||Should you watch this game?|
|7:30||Georgia at Kentucky SEC Network,WatchESPN||Sure|
|8||No. 1 Alabama at No. 13 LSU CBS, CBSSports Live||Absolutely|
|Playoff contenders, after-dark edition|
|8||No. 10 Nebraska at No. 6 Ohio State ABC, WatchESPN||Yes|
|10:30||No. 5 Washington at Cal ESPN, WatchESPN||Yes|
What the evening window lacks in quantity more than makes up for it in quality. The Georgia-Kentucky game should be sneaky fun. The Wildcats will look to further cement their status as the second-best SEC East team, while the Bulldogs hope to avoid their third loss in a row.
The biggest games of the weekend kick off at 8 p.m. ET. For Big Ten fans, you have a top-10 matchup featuring two 1-loss contenders in Nebraska and Ohio State. For the SEC crowd, you have the LSU-Alabama game. The last two times these teams met in Baton Rouge, Alabama needed some late heroics to pull out a win.
If you still want more football, the #PAC12afterdark matchup features the unbeaten Washington Huskies making a road trip to a Cal team that can score a lot of points. It should be another fun week of college football.
