Week 4, College Football Schedule 2017: TV Schedule & Games

||

As we approach a month into an already manic college football season, intense conference match ups will become a much more prominent part of the upcoming weeks. Gone (mostly) are the cupcake beatdowns that inevitably make up the early weeks of the season. In the absence of those forgettable contests we finally get to see the emergence of power five conferences go head-to-head in pivotal match ups that will ultimately determine the kings of college football.

While the finish line that signifies the end of the season is still a long ways off, reputable programs will look to emphatically separate themselves from the pack with decisive victories over conference rivals. If you thought the high-octane shootouts and defensive grudge matches we’ve seen thus far were sensationally competitive, the top match ups this week will overwhelm you with their ramped up implications and fierce intensity.
