A look at games that might pique your interest

Here’s what’s on the schedule this week around the ACC and the immediate region, plus keeping an eye on the Wolfpack’s 2018 opponents and other potentially intriguing national games.

It’s pretty slim pickings for your Thursday and Friday games this week, but football is football and college football is much better than the NFL. That late Friday night game between Washington State and Southern Cal could be entertaining, though.

Not really related to matchups this week, but it is interesting to see the differences between the F/+ rankings and the Sagarin rankings when you look at several teams, notably: Notre Dame, Iowa, Virginia Tech, Central Florida, and Louisville.

Also, nobody should watch that Charlotte-UMass game... actually, it looks like every broadcasting entity already teamed up to make sure that doesn’t happen.

(Note: F/+ (a combination of FEI and S&P+ rankings) and Sagarin rankings listed for each team. For D1-AA/FCS teams, only the Sagarin ranking is listed.)
