Some of the top teams in college football will face off in Week 11, including what should be some exciting matchups between conference rivals.

This week, the “Big Noon Kickoff” crew is heading to Beaver Stadium as No. 10 Penn State plays host to No. 3 Michigan in a Big Ten East showdown at Noon ET (on FOX and the FOX Sports app). Pregame coverage begins at 10 a.m.

Meanwhile, No. 5 Washington hopes to remain unbeaten as it faces No. 18 Utah in a Pac-12 matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET (on FOX and the FOX Sports app). This will be the 16th all-time meeting between the teams, with Washington leading the series, 13-2.

Also at 3:30 p.m. ET, No. 13 Tennessee and No. 14 Missouri will also face off, as the Volunteers seek their first road win over a Top 15 opponent since 2006.

And later in the evening, an SEC battle between No. 9 Ole Miss and No. 2 Georgia will mark the 47th all-time meeting of the two powerhouses; while Caleb Williams and USC look to bounce back from last week’s loss to the Huskies when the Trojans meet No. 6 Oregon.
