I have to be honest here, other than a few of the Big 10 games on this list, I had no clue there were so many intriguing and relevant non-conference games scheduled this season! It sucks that there likely won’t be electric atmospheres at most of those games, but these 10 I have chosen should all be fantastic football to enjoy this upcoming fall. I should preface that I tried to keep the list to games that are not played on a regular basis (I’m looking at you ND-USC, although it wouldn’t have made the cut anyways). So, I’m going to be ranking these ten games on their pre-season intrigue and potential relevancy in both conference championship and CFP races. Let’s get started!
