It's the first weekend of November, which means that the rubber has officially met the road in the race for a berth in the College Football Playoff for some teams and conference titles for others. It's time to have some fun, and there will be a lot of it on Saturday afternoon as a full slate of college football fun awaits. 

No. 13 Auburn will travel to College Station to take on No. 14 Texas A&M in a critical battle between SEC West foes. No. 5 Ohio State will clash Nebraska in a cross-division showdown and No. 2 Alabama will host LSU in a traditional rivalry that is always must-see TV.

What should you keep an eye on this Saturday? Here's a viewer's guide to help you navigate through the action. All times Eastern. 

The big games

No. 5 Ohio State at Nebraska -- noon on Fox, fuboTV (Try for free): The Buckeyes didn't land in the top four in the initial CFP Rankings, but style points on the road in a hostile environment would help their case. Meanwhile, an upset would be huge for Cornhuskers coach Scott Frost.

No. 13 Auburn at No. 14 Texas A&M -- 3:30 p.m. on CBS, and CBS Sports AppThe SEC on CBS Game of the Week will feature an Auburn team that still controls its own destiny in the SEC West and, if a few more dominoes fall, could elbow its way back into the playoff discussion. The Aggies would love nothing more than to play spoiler and prove that the win over Alabama last month was not a fluke.

No. 4 Oregon at Washington -- 7:30 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): The Huskies haven't lived up to expectations, but the war of words between the two schools heated up this week when coach Jimmy Lake was asked about how the two schools approach recruiting. The Ducks earned respect from the playoff committee this week, and another road win would certainly help keep them in the top four.

Other big games

No. 9 Wake Forest at North Carolina -- noon on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): The Demon Deacons will look to keep their unblemished record alive against a Tar Heels team that's been a disappointment. Still, the explosive offense led by quarterback Sam Howell is fully capable of forcing Wake Forest into another shootout.

No. 3 Michigan State at Purdue -- 3:30 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): Could the Spartans be a bit hungover after the big win over Michigan last week? We'll find out against a Boilermakers squad that upset Iowa when the Hawkeyes were ranked No. 2 in the nation. Watch out, Sparty.

LSU at No. 2 Alabama -- 7 p.m. on ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free): It's hard to believe that the Tigers are 28.5-point underdogs just two years after that magical night in Tuscaloosa in 2019 when they stunned the Crimson Tide. Yet, here we are. Meanwhile, Alabama has had a couple of weeks to self-scout after it struggled a bit against Tennessee.

Best of the rest
