The college football season rolls on and heats up. It’s Week 5 of the season and while some teams’ hopes and desires have seen early demises (sorry, Sparty), others have already exceeded expectations in the first months of the season (Kentucky??).

This week of college ball features plenty of intriguing matchups, highlighted locally by No. 4 Michigan traveling on the road for the first time to take on a gritty Iowa team who may not bring much in terms of offense, but hasn’t allowed more than 10 points yet this season.

Of course, even if you aren’t a fan of any particular college team, Saturdays are perfect to get a head start on scouting for the 2023 NFL Draft.

As always, you should check out Erik Schlitt’s players to watch post to guide your Saturday viewing, but feel free to discuss your own favorite college prospects in the comment section below during all of the games.
