The college football offseason is long and arduous, but its end is almost in sight. We’re going to take a look at five games you have to look forward to for every weekend of the season. (This is also a handy guide to decide how to RSVP for any autumn weddings.) All times are Eastern and all games are played on Saturday unless otherwise noted. These games take place the weekend of October 4. Previously: Week One (August 30) ~ Week Two (September 6) ~ Week Three (September 13) ~ Week Four (September 20) ~ Week Five (September 27) LSU at Auburn (TBD) We didn’t think much of last year’s late September Tiger brawl between Auburn and LSU, a 35-21 Bayou Bengal smashing that was never in doubt. Then, of course, Auburn proceeded to not lose again until January in the title game. Gus Malzahn’s offense was held to its lowest 2013 output in Baton Rouge, but with quarterback Nick Marshall, most of his offensive line and every receiver of note back, he’ll have a good chance at improving on the 21-point total. Auburn had no answer for LSU tailback Jeremy Hill last year, and could face an even deadlier foe in five-star freshman Leonard Fournette, who will be running behind a veteran offensive line. Fournette is…well, he’s engendering comparisons to Adrian Peterson as a freshman and it’s telling that no one is really claiming blasphemy. Perhaps because they’ve seen his highlight reel?   Stanford at Notre Dame (3:30 p.m.) Two years ago this was a battle of top-ten teams, with Notre Dame prevailing in a soggy overtime session that ended with a semi-controversial goal line stand. Stanford took care of business at home last year 27-20, grabbing two interceptions off of Tommy Rees in the final six minutes to maintain the margin. Rees (purveyor of end-game heroics in 2012 and fourth quarter picks last year) is gone, replaced by Everett Golson, who adds a level of dynamism to the Irish offense. He’ll be attempting to do damage against a salty Cardinal defense led by veterans Henry Anderson and A.J. Tarpley in the front seven and the cornerback duo of Wayne Lyon and Alex Carter sealing off the outside. Alabama at Ole Miss (TBD) Although the scoreboard hasn’t necessarily reflected it at the final gun, the Rebels have played the Tide tough the last two years under Hugh Freeze. The tremendous talent deficit they were facing hasn’t been eliminated (and likely never will be as long as the Alabama recruiting juggernaut rolls on) but it’s been reduced, and this will be the new Tide quarterback’s (likely Jake Coker) first road game of the season. Nick Saban also has to replace six starters on defense, including stars C.J. Mosley and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but there are plenty of blue-chip options on the depth chart with the potential to step up. If the Rebels are going to win this they’ll need a steady game from quarterback Bo Wallace, who threw seven of his ten interceptions last year in Rebel losses and had his season-low in passing (159 yards) against Bama. Wallace will have five-star sophomore Laremy Tunsil – the left tackle Freeze couldn’t stop praising at SEC media days - protecting his blind side against a reloading Tide defensive line.

Stanford has played in four straight major bowl games and the past two Rose Bowls, building a resilient football power at an improbable place. They were picked to finish second behind Oregon in the Pac-12 North Division yet again. Yet Stanford coach David Shaw doesn't perceive any slight in the preseason conference media poll. I might pick Oregon, too.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Football - Oregon Ducks News

Although Marcus Mariota knew he would be under a spotlight when he stepped onto the famed Paramount Studios lot Wednesday, the Oregon quarterback is getting quite comfortable in his starring role. ''I've had to get used to it and come out of my shell a little bit, but I'm trying to enjoy it,'' Mariota said at the Pac-12's media day. ''I take it as an honor and a privilege, and hopefully an opportunity to provide a good influence.'' Coach Mark Helfrich and Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott both used the league's first session of its two-day Hollywood kickoff event to praise Mariota for staying in school. The rest of the Pac-12 isn't quite as excited about the Heisman Trophy candidate's return after two dynamite seasons for the Ducks, but he's just one reason why they're favored to win their highly competitive league again.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Football - Oregon Ducks News
