We’re starting a new Friday feature in which Ben Roberts and yours truly pick the top college and NFL games of the weekend.

We’ll pick 10 games, both straight-up and against the spread. Since the NFL season doesn’t start until Eagles-Falcons next Thursday, we’re starting with an all-college schedule. And what a schedule it is with Michigan-Notre Dame, Auburn-Washington, Miami-LSU, Virginia Tech-Florida State, to name just a few.

Here goes:

Central Michigan at Kentucky

3:30 p.m. Saturday on ESPNU

Line: UK by 17.5
