Saturday is full of must-watch matchups, with several top-25 games scheduled for Week 6. The stakes are high as college football hits the midpoint mark this weekend and we've got you covered with the top games on tap, followed by the complete Week 6 schedule.

Saturday, Noon Slate

The Big12 Red River Rivalry headlines Saturday's noon slate with No. 19 Texas at No. 7 Oklahoma. For the first time since 2012, the Longhorns and Sooners are both ranked for their annual matchup at the State Fair of Texas. QB Kyler Murray looks to keep Oklahoma (5-0) undefeated as they take on Texas (4-1) and quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who hasn't thrown a single interception in the past month for the Longhorns. No. 1 Alabama takes on Arkansas at the same time, with the Crimson Tide entering as heavy favorites. A newly-ranked No. 23 NC State hosts ACC opponent Boston College at 12:30 p.m. ET to wrap up Saturday's early games.

Saturday, Afternoon Slate

Afternoon football starts with No. 4 Clemson vs. Wake Forest in another ACC conference contest and No. 5 LSU visiting No. 22 Florida, both kicking off at 3:30 p.m. ET. Several other ranked teams play Saturday afternoon in a light slate, with Florida State visiting No. 17 Miami, Indiana visiting No. 3 Ohio State and Arizona State visiting No. 21 Colorado.

Saturday, Evening Slate

Saturday evening's early slate is also quiet until No. 6 Notre Dame visits No. 24 Virginia Tech at 8 p.m. for a top-25 primetime showdown. The Hokies (3-1) rallied to defeat the Duke Blue Devils last week after suffering an enormous upset in Week 4 at the hands of fellow-Virginia state school Old Dominion. The Fighting Irish (5-0) look to remain undefeated in Blacksburg, with quarterback Ian Book under center. Book threw for 278 yards and four touchdowns as Notre Dame defeated now-No. 14 Stanford in Week 5.
