Last week’s slate didn’t feature many intriguing games on paper, but there were a few interesting results. This week’s slate features a lot of intriguing matchups, which should mean even more interesting results. From heavyweight bouts between Power Five teams to a huge opportunity for one Group of Five outfit to shock an SEC contender, Week 7 offers plenty of viewing options for fans across the country.

Will Texas A&M take down Alabama in College Station one year after getting blown out by the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa? Can UCLA bounce back after a loss to Arizona State to beat Stanford? Who will emerge from Michigan-Michigan State as Ohio State’s top challenger in the Big Ten? SI.com's team of college football writers—Andy Staples, Pete Thamel, Thayer Evans, Zac Ellis, Colin Becht, Lindsay Schnell, Brian Hamilton and Ben Glicksman—offers its predictions for those games and more.​
