College football is finally back after the long awaited pause of 365 days. This upcoming weekend will be the fourth weekend of college football for the dramatic 2023 season. With many teams playing their first in-conference games this week, stakes are high and fans are excited. This weekend's matchups will be nail biters and close calls stretching from the PAC-12 to the ACC. 

Main Matchups:

#4 Florida State v. Clemson: Sept. 23 12 p.m. ET

The fourth ranked Seminoles will travel to Clemson, South Carolina to take on the unranked Clemson Tigers. Clemson’s season has been rough with a big loss against the Duke Blue Devils in week one. FSU quarterback Jordan Travis suffered a shoulder injury last game against Boston College and is likely to play against the Tigers. However, his passing game could be affected if he were to take a big hit by one of the Tiger defenders. The Seminoles come into this game as three point favorites with a 57.3% chance to win. A win against the Tigers would likely boost the Noles in the Associated Press (AP) Rankings. 

#19 Colorado v. #10 Oregon: Sept. 23 3:30 p.m. ET

Coach Deion Sanders will take his team to Eugene, Oregon to face off the tenth ranked Oregon Ducks. The Buffalos will face their second ranked opponent this season and the Ducks will be a huge test to Coach Prime’s offense. Colorado’s wide receiver/defensive back Travis Hunter will be out of the game due to an injury received last game and without him the Buffalo’s will have to rely on the inexperienced secondary to make up for the absence of Hunter. The Oregon Ducks will go into the game as 21 point favorites and will put Coach Sanders and QB Sheduer Sanders to the test. 

#15 Ole Miss v. #13 Alabama: Sept. 23 3:30 p.m. ET

Coach Nick Saban will have to host the Running Rebels who have been running through their competitors. After suffering a loss two weeks ago and a close call against South Florida, the Crimson Tide’s defense will have to lock down to stop the Rebel’s explosive offense led by junior QB Jaxson Dart. After struggling to find a QB to fit into the playbook the Crimson Tide will have to trust one of their guys in the depth chart to secure the win over the Rebels. Ole Miss came into this game as the seven point underdogs and hope to leave Tuscaloosa with an upset victory. 

#6 Ohio State v. #9 Notre Dame: Sept. 23 7:30 p.m. ET

The Buckeyes will travel to Notre Dame to face off in a huge AP ranked game. Ohio State will come into the game as three point favorites and Irish QB Sam Hartman will have to lead his offense along the side of leading receiver Chris Tyree. Ohio State QB Kyler McCord will have to lead the charge over the Fighting Irish and connect to his key receivers while also leaning on his young offensive line.
