Don't miss the five games to watch this week in College Football.

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Week seven of college football will once again provide a slate of entertaining game that shouldn't be missed. This week we provide you with the information for our top five games:

5) #18 UCLA at #15 Stanford 10:30 PM EST ESPN Thursday

Stanford stumbled early against Northwestern, but has dominated all of their PAC-12 opponents since then, they could be this year’s Ohio State if they win out, but need to deal UCLA a second loss in a row. Jim Mora is coming off a bye week and will undoubtedly have his team ready.

Prediction: UCLA starts strong and controls the whole game 35-24

4) #13 Ole Miss at Memphis 12 PM EST ABC/ESPN2

This is the sneaky huge game of the weekend. Ole Miss was taking care of business, including a win against Alabama, but then get rolled by the upstart Gators. They will need to get back on track but face a very tough undefeated Memphis team in the hunt for a New Year’s 6 bowl game.

Prediction: Memphis pulls off the upset 31-24.

3) #8 Florida at #6 LSU 7 PM EST ESPN

Florida lost their starting quarterback and go against a team with no passing game whatsoever. If LSU wins, then Leonard Fournette’s grip on the Heisman Trophy gets even tighter.

Prediction: Florida wins a tight game on a 4th Quarter game winning drive 27-26

2) #10 Alabama at #9 Texas A&M 3:30 PM EST CBS

This is a huge SEC battle as both of these teams are looking for a statement win for the playoff committee. The Aggies are undefeated, and looking for revenge after being humiliated 59-0 last year by the Tide.

Prediction: Alabama wins 28-20

1) #7 Michigan State at #12 Michigan 3:30 PM EST ESPN

I asked a Michigan State fan two years ago how many seasons they would need to dominate Michigan before they become the premier program in the state. It now appears that question is moot. The Michigan defense has been on a tear with three straight shutouts starting with BYU. Right now the rankings say Spartans, but Vegas says Michigan by a touchdown, believe it.

Prediction: Michigan reasserts dominance by winning 35-17
