Week seven of college football is going to be a good one, as there are three Top-25 matchups and the race for conference championships gets more intense.

No. 2 University of Georgia (6-0, 4-0) at No. 13 Louisiana State University (5-1, 2-1)

This could be a low scoring, defensive matchup as both defenses have been good so far this season. The Bulldogs have allowed 13 points per game and the Tigers have allowed 17 points per game.

Georgia’s offense, averaging 42.8 points per game, is led by sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm, who has thrown for 1,200 yards on 83 completions for 12 touchdowns.

Junior wide receiver Mecole Hardman has 335 yards on 22 receptions along with four touchdowns, as he has caught one-fourth of Fromm’s touchdowns.

Louisiana State’s offense is led by junior quarterback Joe Burrow, he has thrown for 1,214 yards on six touchdowns on 89 completions. Along with star senior running back Nick Brossette, he has accumulated 576 yards on 118 carries, finding the end zone eight times so far this season.

This game will kick off Saturday at 2:30 p.m. on CBS.

No. 7 University of Washington (5-1, 3-0) at No. 17 University of Oregon (4-1, 1-1)

The matchup between Oregon’s offense against Washington’s defense is what to watch for in this game. Oregon’s high-powering offense has scored 45.6 points per game and Washington’s defense has allowed just 13.67 points per game.

The Ducks’ offense has been led by junior quarterback Justin Herbert, who has thrown for 15 touchdowns on 1,411 yards on 88 completions.

For the Huskies on offense, it has been led by senior running back Myles Gaskin, he has accumulated 554 yards on 124 carries, along with five touchdowns.

This game will kick off Saturday at 2:30 p.m. on ABC/ESPN 2.

No. 15 University of Wisconsin (4-1, 2-0) at No. 12 University of Michigan (5-1, 3-0)

Two good defenses as Wisconsin has allowed just 16.4 points per game and Michigan has allowed just 15.8 points per game.

Both teams are still unbeaten in conference play; Michigan part of the Big 10 East, and Wisconsin part of the Big 10 West.

This game could potentially end up being the Big 10 conference championship game at the end of the regular season.

This game has big importance for the Wolverines, as they are in a race with the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes for the East of the Big 10.

The big playmaker for the Badger offense has been sophomore Jonathan Taylor, who has achieved eight touchdowns, picking up 849 yards on 126 carries.

For Michigan, it has been senior running back Karan Higdon, who has five touchdowns on 101 carries along with 582 yards.

This game will kick off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. on ABC.
