There's A Ton Of College Football On Tonight And Tomorrow

Don't worry everyone, you didn't accidentally go to work by on a Saturday. The weeknight college football slate has been kicked into high gear.

There have been Thursday and Friday night games for most of the year, but this week features 10 games over the next two nights.

Three ranked teams are in action during that stretch, and there are five match-ups between Power Five programs.

Here's what this week's Thursday and Friday night college football schedule looks like.

The first game tonight features the No. 13 team in the country.

No. 13 West Virginia Mountaineers (5-1, 3-1 Big 12) vs. Baylor Bears (4-3, 2-2 Big 12)

Baylor's taken a step forward, but a trip to Morgantown at night will be a tough ask for year two under Matt Rhule. The Mountaineers are 13.5-point favorites.

Western Michigan is already bowl eligible, and undefeated in the MAC. The Broncos look for win No. 7 against one of the league's normal powers—Toledo—in a rare down season. Western Michigan is a 6.5-point favorite.

App State is no stranger to the spotlight. Advanced metrics have loved the Mountaineers all year, and now they've broken into the Top 25. Georgia Southern is back to looking like Georgia Southern after some rough years, and are also sitting with just one loss and an undefeated Sun Belt record. App State is a 10-point favorite on the road.

Virginia Tech Hokies (4-2, 3-0 ACC) vs. Georgia Tech (3-4, 1-3 ACC)

Two middling Big Ten programs get some prime time attention, and the chance to claw closer to bowl eligibility. Indiana is a 2.5-point road favorite.

UCLA Bruins (2-5, 2-2 Pac-12) vs. No. 23 Utah Utes (5-2, 3-2 Pac-12)

UCLA has some signs of life, and is riding a two-game conference winning streak after a brutal start under Chip Kelly. Utah may be the best team in a weak Pac-12 South, however, and is trying to solidify itself as the favorite to represent the division in the conference championship. The Utes are a 10.5-point favorite.
