Are you ready for some football? You better be because there are 65 games on today’s schedule.

The first real Saturday of the college football season begins today with the Oregon State Beavers travelling to Columbus, Ohio to face the #5 Ohio State Buckeyes, who will be without head coach Urban Meyer for today’s game. The Beavers and the Buckeyes kick off at 9 am on ABC.

Also at 9 am, Lane Kiffin’s Florida Atlantic Owls visit the #7 Oklahoma Sooners on Fox. It’s possible that the Owls could upset the Sooners as FAU is supposed to be a pretty talented team this year and teams that lose a Heisman winner typically have a down year after the Heisman winner leaves, according to Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt.

But the game of the day has got to be the game between the #6 Washington Huskies and the #9 Auburn Tigers at 12:30 pm on ABC. While technically a “neutral site” game, Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta is just 109 miles away from Auburn’s campus. That’s a shorter distance than going from Auburn to Tuscaloosa to play the Crimson Tide. So, look for Auburn fans to turn this into a home game for the Tigers. This is a huge game for Washington and the Pac-12, though, after failing to have a team in College Football Playoff last season.

Here’s today’s full slate of games.
