Mandatory Credit: Robert Mayer-USA TODAY SportsAlabama and Oregon both have the week off, but luckily, there are still plenty of teams that will provide excitement in the world of college football this weekend. And for the second time this season, the biggest game of the week belongs to the ACC.

With that in mind, let's check out which games you should be watching this week.

5. #4 Ohio State (8-0) at Purdue (1-6) - 12 PM ET, Big Ten Network

Do I think Purdue has even the slightest chance to upset the Buckeyes? No. However, this game might be worth the viewing because Ohio State may put up 100 points. I'm serious, people. Urban Meyer is hoping that massive blowouts will somehow help his team move past one of the three undefeated teams in front of them, so if you add in the fact that Purdue may be one of the worst Big Ten teams in recent memory, it would not surprise me if this turns out to be one of the biggest blowouts in quite a while in college football.

4. USC (5-3) at Oregon State (6-2) - 9 PM ET, ESPN (Friday)

Despite a ridiculous amount amount of injuries, USC dominated Utah last Saturday in Los Angeles. The Trojans are now 2-1 with Ed Orgeron at the helm, but they may be facing their toughest challenge since his takeover when they finish Corvallis this weekend. Oregon State had its chances to knock off Stanford but it wasn't to be. The Beavers have routinely scored a lot of points, however, if USC can get a similar defensive performance like the one they had against the Utes, they will be in a great position to get this solid Pac-12 road win.

3. #18 Oklahoma State (6-1) at #15 Texas Tech (7-1) - 7 PM ET, FOX

It shouldn't have really surprised anyone that Texas Tech lost their first game of the season against Oklahoma. The Red Raiders' schedule had been suspect up to that point, and it doesn't get any easier here against a top 20 Oklahoma State team. Speaking of suspect schedules, the Cowboys may be in the same boat. This will be their first game of the season against a ranked team which worries me a little. My guess is that Kliff Kingsbury will have the Red Raiders ready to go and they'll win a high-scoring affair in Lubbock.

2. #21 Michigan (6-1) at #22 Michigan State (7-1) - 3:30 PM ET, ABC

The last time the Wolverines took the field, they scored 63 and gave up 47 against Indiana. My guess is that the score won't get that high in their game versus Michigan State this week, as these teams are a combined 13-2 on the season. The Spartan defense has been fantastic this year, giving up only 12.3 points per game. That means Devon Gardner and the Michigan offense will have their work cut out for them in what should be a game that goes right down to the wire. 

1. #7 Miami FL (7-0) at #3 Florida State (7-0) - 8 PM ET, ABC

It's great and all that the Hurricanes are undefeated right now. But here's the deal: Florida State is a much better team and they will prove that on Saturday night in prime time. Miami has squeaked out wins over North Carolina and Wake Forest in back to back weeks, while the Seminoles hammered an undefeated Clemson team and NC State. Al Golden's team could surprise me and make this interesting. But my guess is that they don't and we see another ACC blowout in favor of Jameis Winston and company.
