The Wildcats (5-1) are off this week with Minnesota (2-3) remaining on pause following a spike of COVID cases in its program, but college football continues its rocky road to the finish as we hit the final month of the regular season.

In Big Ten action, No. 4 Ohio State will be short-handed in East Lansing as the Buckeyes look to advance to 5-0 against Michigan State at 11.a.m (ABC). Nebraska-Purdue (BTN) and Penn State-Rutgers (FS1) will also kick off in the early window. With just five games on the B1G docket today, Iowa-Illinois (BTN) and No. 12 Indiana at No. 16 Wisconsin (ABC) will both play at 2:30.

The unexpected game of the day is No. 13 BYU at No. 18 Coastal Carolina, where ESPN College GameDay is this morning. This matchup was scheduled on the fly after Liberty, the Chanticleers’ original opponent, canceled due to COVID cases.
