College football Week 7 roundtable: Predicting Georgia-Kentucky, upsets, under-the-radar games, players to watch, more

Last Saturday gave us one of the greatest days in the history of college football. It’s a tough act to follow for Week 7, which doesn’t have the most compelling slate at first glance, but sometimes a fun weekend happens when we least expect it.

What should you be watching? The Athletic gathered Scott Dochterman, G. Allan Taylor, Seth Emerson, Grace Raynor and Matt Brown to break down the slate. Check out the full TV schedule here.

Which Week 7 game are you most looking forward to watching?

Dochterman: Before the game I cover — Purdue at Iowa — kicks off, I’ll try to get my eyes on Nebraska-Minnesota in Dinkytown. Minnesota has lost its top two running backs to season-ending medical conditions. The Gophers (3-2) beat Nebraska last year with 35 players at home, which was a testament to their toughness. The Huskers (3-4) have found new and excruciating ways to lose this year and have the world’s most brutal schedule with games against five of the nation’s current top-10 teams. It’s almost a must-win game for Nebraska to entertain postseason thoughts.

Taylor: Can I juxtapose the Army-Wisconsin over/under (39.5) against Ole Miss-Tennessee (82) and bet on more first-half points being scored in Knoxville than the full game in Madison? In games based on actual outcomes and not prop bets, Alabama’s 82-mile trip to Starkville is intriguing. Mississippi State had last week off while the Crimson Tide’s defense was chasing its tail around Kyle Field.
