Week 7's slate is full of reunions in between familiar foes.

In Knoxville, Tennessee will look to snap a nine-game losing streak to Alabama while bolstering its hopes for an SEC title and a College Football Playoff berth. In South Bend, Notre Dame and Stanford will meet in a matchup that seemed likely to have playoff implications in the preseason but now will leave the loser staring a dismal season in the face. And in Madison, Wisconsin gets the chance to prove its defense makes it a threat in the Big Ten when the Badgers host Ohio State.

These teams all know one another well, so anything could happen.
