All in all this could be on the of the most-watched games of the season, so you definitely don’t want to miss out.

No. 2 LSU Tigers vs. Texas Longhorns – Sept. 7th
All things considered, this battle will likely pit two Top 15 programs against one another. Granted this is some pretty heavy speculation.

If you’re a big fan of Texas football you’ll also want to keep an eye out for their Week 2 contest against the defending national champs.
No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Michigan Wolverines – Oct. 26th
If either side enter this matchup with a loss, this could be a potential playoff eliminator. And since this game comes after No. 1 on this list, Notre Dame could be that team. Last season helped give Notre Dame some rep late in the season, especially since Michigan rode in on a dominant 10-game winning streak. On the flip side, a win here could help either side make a case for the college football playoffs. And since both Notre Dame and Michigan have tough schedules to close out the year, this contest is pretty much a must win for both sides.
No. 4 Texas A&M Aggies vs. Clemson Tigers – Sept. 7th
Considering how thrilling this contest was last season, there’s no question you’ll want to tune in. Texas A&M will undoubtedly be looking to capitalize on the opportunity of usurping the reigning champs on their home turf. Additionally, this contest is likely to be a top 15 showdown. And since it comes as early as Week 2, there’s no question this is one of the best non-conference games of the upcoming season. All things considered, this could be Clemson’s toughest matchup of the season, outside of trips to Syracuse and South Carolina.
