On Saturday, several Top 25 games will take place, including No. 1 Alabama taking on 20th ranked Southern California, No. 3 Oklahoma squaring off against No. 15 Houston, and the 18th ranked Georgia Bulldogs will take on No. 22 North Carolina. If that isn’t good enough. No. 10 Notre Dame will take on Texas Sunday night, while  Ole Miss will take their No. 11 ranking into Tallahassee to take on the No. 4  Florida State Seminoles on a Labor Day Monday Night Football special.
