No. 7 Stanford University (3-0) at No. 20 University of Oregon (3-0)

Two top-25 ranked Pac-12 West foes will meet Saturday night in Eugene, Oregon.

Stanford’s star running back Bryce Love has accumulated 165 yards on 40 carries so far this season, but has only found the end zone once. Love was out in Stanford’s last game against the University of California, Davis with an undisclosed injury.

A Heisman runner up last year, Love will be looking for a big game against Oregon to boost his Heisman hopes.

Oregon’s high-powered offense — averaging 51.7 points per game — is led by junior quarterback Justin Herbert, who has thrown for 840 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Cardinal defense contrasts the Ducks offense, as it has only allowed 7.7 points per game this season.

The featured College GameDay game will kick off at 7 p.m. Saturday on ABC.

No. 22 Texas A&M University (2-1) at No. 1 University of Alabama (3-0)

These two teams have had good battles in the past, the biggest game coming in 2012 when Texas A&M stunned Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

The Aggies go into this game 2-1, with their one loss being a narrow 28-26 loss against No. 3 Clemson in week two.

Junior running back Trayveon Williams has rushed for 399 yards and four touchdowns. Sophomore quarterback Kellen Mond is completing 62.9-percent of his passes and has thrown for 824 yards and six touchdowns, adding three touchdowns on the ground.

The Aggie offense has averaged 44.3 points per game and goes up against a Crimson Tide defense that has allowed just 9.3 points per game.

Alabama has defended its national title and No. 1 ranking in the first three weeks, as they remain undefeated at 3-0. It most recently pummeled Ole Miss, 62-7.

Sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been terrific for the Crimson Tide this season, completing 36 of 50 passes for 646 yards and eight touchdowns.

These two SEC foes will begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday on CBS.

No. 17 Texas Christian University (2-1) at the University of Texas (2-1)

TCU has averaged 41.7 points per game and is led by sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson. He has thrown for 644 yards and five touchdowns in the first three games this season.

TCU dropped what would have been a big win against No. 4 Ohio State last Saturday, losing 40-28 after leading 21-13 early in the third quarter.

Texas is riding some momentum into this game after an upset win over then-No. 22 USC, as they handily defeated the Trojans, 37-14.

Sophomore quarterback Sam Ehlinger had a big game against the Trojans throwing for two touchdown passes and running for one. He has thrown for 723 yards and six touchdowns, and ran for two scores this season.

This game will be very important for the Horned Frogs to keep any hopes they have alive for the College Football Playoff after losing to Ohio State last week.

These Texas rivals will face off at 3:30 p.m. Saturday on FOX.
