It's week five of the college football season and we know two things:

Alabama is great.

Clemson is great.

Everyone else, everything else is up in the air, and you know what, that is okay.

It makes for an entertaining season.

Here are the games you don't want to miss today.

Penn State at Northwestern 9:00am Arizona time, ABC

Saquon Barkley continues his Heisman campaign against the Big10. Northwestern is led by Clayton Thorson, who has been pretty good this year. It’ll be interesting to see how Barkley rebounds after his relatively quiet game against Indiana, who he has never played well against.

West Virginia at TCU 12:30pm, Fox Sports 1

The Horned Frogs are the number eight team in the country, while West Virginia sits at 23. This is going to be a really fun game to watch.

Washington State at Oregon 5pm, Fox

What a game this will be and a chance for Washington State to establish themselves as the top team in the Pac12. I am waiting patiently to decide my opinion of Luke Falk, but man, he is a great college quarterback.

What will you be watching?
