Saturday's slate of college football games is scheduled to kick off in just under two hours. Several huge games with College Football Playoff implications will go down throughout the day.

By Saturday's end we'll be closer to finding out which teams have what it takes to compete for a conference title and perhaps a national title.

One college football analyst believes there will be a surprise team mentioned on the College Football Playoff race after today's action. Dan Wolken thinks the Iowa Hawkeyes will be in the national title discussion after today's game against Wisconsin.

Here's what he had to say about Iowa.

A win for the Hawkeyes over No. 18 Wisconsin would do huge things for the program. Iowa sits just outside the top 25 - at No. 26 in the AP Poll.

Iowa and Wisconsin kick off tonight at 8:35 p.m. ET from Kinnick Stadium. Can the Hawkeyes down the Badgers and move to 4-0?
