The 2021 college football season is officially in full swing and another full weekend of action taking place this weekend. With another busy slate of games, the quality of matchups is picking up, and more and more is on the line each and every weekend.
The marquee matchups in Week 5 both come in the SEC with meetings between Top 10 teams as the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs host the No. 8 Arkansas Razorbacks and No. 7 Cincinnati Bearcats taking on the No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. We also have Nick Saban vs. Lane Kiffin as top-ranked Alabama hosts No. 12 Ole Miss in Tuscaloosa.
Other top matchups include No. 21 Baylor at No. 19 Oklahoma State.
When will the top teams in the country be taking the field?
