Betting lines have been released for the biggest college football games on the Week 5 slate.

The fifth weekend of the year is highlighted by Ohio State's trip to Nebraska. The Huskers nearly knocked off the Buckeyes in Columbus last year. ESPN's College GameDay is coming to Lincoln for Saturday night's matchup.

Ohio State is a big favorite, though, as the Buckeyes opened as a 15-point favorite against Nebraska at Memorial Stadium.

Scott Frost said this weekend that Ryan Day's team might be the best Big Ten team he's seen since he arrived in the conference.

"We've got a great team coming in next week. Watching them a little on tape, I think they're as good a team as I've seen since I've been in the Big Ten," he said.

Here are the betting lines for college football's other big Week 5 games, from 247Sports:

No. 12 Penn State (-8) at Maryland
